The “San Marcial” Division carried out, between June 1st and 17th, the “MS Coordination 22” exercise, in which approximately 1.600 troops, 200 vehicles and 10 helicopters took part.

Under the control of the Division Headquarters, the maneuvers were carried out simultaneously in different locations of the Autonomous Communities of Castile and Leon, La Rioja, Cantabria, Madrid and Castile – La Mancha, where various units have been deployed: Air Assault Forces of the Army, Special Operations Command, Mountain Troop Command, “Almogávares” VI Prachute Brigade and number one Information Operations Regiment.

The “MS Coordination” exercise is the main annual exercise in the field of the “San Marcial” Division, and it mainly focuses on coordination, planning and realization of two exercises: “Empecinado” (stubborn in Spanish) and “Listed Paratrooper”, in which all the capacities are integrated.

With this kind of exercises, the “San Marcial” Division aims to maintain and improve the degree of availability and interoperability of all its units, by means of increasingly realistic instruction and training, to manage to anticipate current and future challenges.
