Intermediate Reserve Force “Mission Ready in Theatre”_1

On 07 September 2013, members of the Intermediate Reserve (IR) Force under the leadership of the Commander of the Multinational Battalion, Lieutenant Colonel Christoph BLASCH, and under the watchful and critical eyes of Commander EUFOR, Major General Dieter Heidecker, and Chief of Staff EUFOR, Brigadier General József Szpisják, underwent the final test before having proven their “Full Operational Capability”. During a challenging and demanding drill, the IR companies from Austria and Slovakia, who have recently joined EUFOR as reinforcements for the operational rehearsal “Exercise Quick Response 2”, had to demonstrate their military skills by solving a series of demanding tasks typical for peace support operations. The exercise took place inside the RAJLOVAC barracks in SARAJEVO and included different scenarios that demanded accurate reaction to events such as civil disturbances, fighting in built up areas (FIBUA), protection of essential infrastructure and emergency procedures for persons needing assistance to evacuate. In the process the soldiers and their commanders were challenged to carryout search operations, reconnaissance and detection operations, patrols, checkpoint and traffic control point operations and conduct stability operations while simultaneously protecting wider security interests.
