Eagle Meteor 19 (from 18th to 25th October 2019) is the main exercise of the year for NRDC-ITA and will complete the HQ’s process of realignment to a warfighting Corps headquarters, a path the HQ started last January after a year in the role of NATO Reaction Force Land Component Command.
EAGLE LIGHT III is not the end of the training cycle; it is just the next step along the path towards transitioning from the NRF role to that of a war fighting Corps.
BRILLIANT LEDGER 17 represents the final step NRDC-ITA is dealing with, in the preparation for being certified as LCC (Land Component Command) as part of the NRF (NATO Response Force) for a year stand-by period starting from January 2018.
SUMMER TEMPEST / EAGLE METEOR 16 fall under the preparation NRDC-ITA is undergoing for assuming the role of LCC as part of the NRF (NATO Response Force), so exercising interoperability and Command and Control over the VJTF (Very High Readiness Joint Task Force) or other combat units/multinational forces.
Sea Eagle (Land) 2016 is one of this year’s major training events for the NATO Rapid Deployable Corps - Italy.
