On July 4 elements of the Mechanized Infantry Brigade Iron Wolf Staff and combat units began training at Exercise Schneller Degen 2022 in Germany. Lithuanian troops will be training operational planning and provision of battlefield command and control to combat units for three weeks.
Readiness of the MIB Iron Wolf staff to plan tactical operations and provide C2 to combat units according to the NATO military decision-making process will be assessed by an expert team of observers.
The training scenario is designed to drill hybrid threat response and high-intensity collective defence operations. All military actions will be trained via computer-assisted simulation.
Exercise Schneller Degen is an annual German exercise, last year it was for the first time hosted by Lithuania.
