The “Arrow” exercise, which began on October 4, of the Italian Army’s anti-aircraft units, has ended.
Among the anti-aircraft assets on the ground, there were systems and technologies that allow to have a constantly updated view of air traffic in the areas of competence and responsibility, realistically simulating warfighting scenarios in order to face, always with the utmost timeliness, the attacks carried out by enemy air carriers.
The exercise was attended by the Chief of Staff of the Italian Army, General of the Army Corps Pietro Serino who, welcomed by the Commander of the Ground Support Operational Forces, General of the Army Corps Massimo Scala and the Commander of the Anti-aircraft Artillery, Brigadier General Giuseppe Amodio, attended a briefing where the features of the exercise were presented, with particular focus on the operational capabilities of the Tactical Group in Joint Rapid Responce readiness Force (JRRF), through the integrated use of all the anti-aircraft defense systems supplied to the Italian Army against threats from the third dimension, from ballistic missiles to mini and micro remotely piloted aircraft.
At the end of the meeting, the Chief of Staff of the Army addressed a greeting to the men and women in exercise stating “today the threat that comes to us from above, beyond the pure air threat, is something from which we must be ready to defend ourselves. Seeing all the Italian Army’s anti-aircraft units operating together in an activity like this is important. The Armed Forces must work to put you in the best conditions to be able to operate and you through your commitment give the return that is expected. Congratulations to everyone for what I saw.”
