A contingent from 28 Squadron RLC, 10 Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment is currently in Georgia participating on NOBLE PARTNER 2020.
NOBLE PARTNER 20 is a cooperatively-led Georgian Defense Force and US Army Europe exercise hosted at Vaziani and Camp Norio training areas in Georgia, at the eastern end of the Black Sea.
Approximately 2,800 military personnel from France, Georgia, Poland, the UK and the US are participating in the exercise which is running from 7th to 18th September. The exercise, which allows participants to conduct situational training exercises, live-fire exercises, and combined mechanised manoeuvrers, is designed to “enhance regional partnerships and increase US force readiness and interoperability in a realistic, multinational training environment”.
Footnote: We received an advance invitation from USAREUR to cover this interesting exercise but regrettably at present COVID-19 travel restrictions prevent foreign-based media visiting Georgia for brief assignments.
