“The Army has demonstrated that it is able to lead an agile, interoperable, ready and indivisible force,” asserted the Vice Chief of the Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Juan Campins, referring to the Very High Readiness Joint Task Force (VJTF) during his visit to Camp Karliki in the Zagan training area (Poland) on 3 June.

Spanish soldiers have been deployed at the camp and in the village of Świętoszów for the final phase of exercise Brilliant Jump. They are led by the 7th Brigade ‘Galicia’, which also contributes the bulk of the troops.

Lt.-Gen. Campins was received by Lt.-Gen. Varela, commander of the VJTF, and by General Cebrián, commander of the VJTF Brigade. He subsequently attended several presentations at the Brigade’s Command Post on the training of the Force as well as its deployment for the exercise and the logistic support it has been provided with.

Campins then witnessed a tactical activity to verify the degree of preparedness and operability of the personnel, resources and vehicles deployed. He highlighted the ability shown by the Army to “improve procedures and interoperability between the different units which make up this multinational Force.”

During 2016 Spain is leading the Very High Readiness Joint Task Force, which will be declared a fully operational force at a NATO summit in Warsaw on 8 and 9 July.
