18 October 2019, Bujanovac (Serbia) - Another unit of the Serbian Armed Forces has shown that it is fully prepared to participate in demanding international peacekeeping missions. Their knowledge, readiness and skills were evaluated by a team of NATO experts (together with their Serbian counterparts), including German Army Lt. Col. Holger Bernard. He spent a week at the “Jug” base near the southern Serbian town of Bujanovac, where a general-purpose engineering company declared for participation in multinational operations was evaluated in accordance with the Operational Capabilities Concept. From what he has seen, he said he would like to come to Serbia again, noting that Serbian engineers justly received the highest marks and that he had the opportunity to see for himself why Serbian peacekeepers are well-known abroad.
In accordance with the exercise scenario, a Company from the 310th Engineering Battalion carried out complex tasks specific to multinational operations, such as the construction of camps, shelters and covers, the construction and maintenance of roads and bridges, the provision of humanitarian aid convoys, and the aeromedical evacuation of injured and ill persons.
