QUICK RESPONSE EXERCISE 2016 - BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA - 04 OCTOBER 2016 – KTM


The KTM Battalion of KFOR having firmly established themselves at Camp Manjaca near Banja Luka in BiH, this morning commenced a number of exercise serials based on the Exercise scenario that were designed to test both their Command and Control functions and also their response and reaction times to dynamic incidents as and when they developed.
 
This was intended to portray in as realistic a manner as possible how a reserve unit acting in such a capacity could react swiftly and effectively. Many of the exercise serials took place simultaneously in real time, which imposed an additional challenge to the Tactical Operations Centre (TOC) of the KTM Battalion as to how they would and could most effectively deploy their resources to unforeseen incidents as they evolved and developed.
 
These incidents included manning a series of Checkpoints (CPs) in a perimeter around the camp, securing the camp itself and also the exfiltration and evacuation of a number of civilians from a dangerous and hostile environment. Concurrently, during the afternoon, preparations were put in place for the Distinguished Visitors day DVD) that will take place on the 05 th October, where a number of visiting dignitaries will be given the opportunity to view both EUFOR troops and also soldiers of the KFOR KTM Battalion being rigorously put through their paces as part of the exercise finale.
