end, the exercise went smoothly, even though many types
of ammunition were dealt with. Their storage and transportation required a great
degree of organization as there were different safety measures depending on their
type, and not all ammunition items could be transported together. When
summarising the exercise, Major Lutz H., the Chief of CSS company, said:
“Sustaining Stallion makes you realize how important it is to regularly train not
only combat but also logistical troops and their procedures."
In addition, it was good to see the interoperability of our multinational soldiers and equipment,
Major H. added. "For example, a Luxembourg forklift would load Belgian ammunition into a truck which increased our overall efficiency.”
