Bydgoszcz, Poland - Commander German Air Operations Command, Lieutenant General Joachim Wundrak, visited Exercise Brilliant Joust 2018 (BRJT18) at the Joint Force Training Centre (JFTC), Bydgoszcz, 16/17 March.
The German Air Operations Command provides the framework for the Joint Force Air Component Headquarters (JFAC HQ) for the NATO Response Force 2018 (NRF18) force package. General Wundrak met with Commander JFC Brunssum, General Riccardo Marchiò, who shared his first impressions of this critical NRF18 training event as a very good baseline to build integration and interoperability. Lieutenant General Wundrak was grateful for General Marchiò's unfiltered insights into the exercise, as well as the opportunity for a direct conversation with the NRF18 Commander.
BRJT18 is the first major NRF18 training event of the year. It is designed to test and refine the interoperability of the tactical joint force elements (air, land, maritime and special operations). JFTC Bydgoszcz provides NATO with the professional training facilities and staff that are essential to deliver this critical joint tactical level training.
