To return to the thread title:

Brigadegeneral Kai Rohrschneider is to take over the position of chief of staff of US Army Europe from BG Markus Laubenthal. RUMINT has it that Laubenthal is going to take command of 1. PzDiv.

I learned about some additional projects from the reports on today's event. Besides the naval cooperation mentioned a couple times, there is also Project Apollo between the Luftwaffe and Dutch Army, which is aimed at putting the German V/SHORAD troops of Air Defense Group 61 under Dutch command; having the Luftwaffe run Ozelot and Mantis was very strange from the beginning, anyway.

 

The cooperation under Project Apollo seems to go a bit further than the above, and in fact the link also mentions the establishment of a joint deployable air and missile defense unit; it's probably to that end that 500 troops from both nations recently conducted Patriot live fire exercises on Crete. So far the only practical step of integration appears to be two Dutch officers serving with Flugabwehrraketengeschwader 1 though.

 

 

Flugabwehrraketengruppe 61 with 450 troops will be officially assigned to Defensie Grondgebonden Luchtverdedigingscommando in Vredepeel today. As in all recent European integration projects of the Bundeswehr, they will remain based where they are now, at Todendorf, Schleswig-Holstein. In purely national deployments, they will of course be led by the German Deployed Missions Command in Potsdam.

Anti-air missile group. Or more literally, aircraft-defense rocket group. :D

Rohrschneider will leave next month to take over as deputy commander of the Bundeswehr's Multi-National Operative Command in Ulm, which will also host buildup of NATO's new Joint Support Enabling Command tasked with facilitating logistics for deployments under the alliance's re-assurance policy towards Eastern European members. His successor is supposed to be BG Hartmut Renk, currently deputy commander of the Heer's Training Command.

Looks like from the German side it will be an abovementioned Panzergrenadiere battalion, and one Leopard 2A5 tank battalion from 34th Armoured Cavalry Brigade from Polish side.

 

Interestingly this seems to be a rotating scheme on the Polish side. Partnership just switched from 34th to 10th Armored Cavalry Brigade; there was a recent joint exercise at the Jägerbrück area near Torgelow, just this side of the common border. Merging PzGren Brigade 41's Griffin with 10th Brigade's armored winged arm and sword for the common insignia is kinda clever.

Joint training of Korps Mariniers and Seebataillon on Texel Island (Dutch).

 

Another joint exercise focussing on disaster relief with HNLMS Johan de Witt out of Sint Maarten planned for this month has been turned into the real thing by hurricane Dorian hitting the Bahamas.

I can never, ever understand the predilection for berets. The most asinine rag disguised as a hat I have ever seen :glare:

Possibly because it is easy to fold up and put in a pocket.

Seems the Bahamas deployment is actually a tri-national action with the French. Or maybe they just picked up some French troops already in theater.

Sometimes it's a shame this forum doesn't have a like button. It's a small world, but one of my wife's oldest friends is on the Snellius.

When I was at RAF Upper Heyford (20th TFW, F-111E) in the early 1980's, we had an Army liason officer assigned. Not sure what the reason was for an Army type to be assigned to a long-range strike wing.

British or US Army? If the former, I would say base security. If the latter, I would suggest it might have something to do with the Wings role in NATO. What rank was he?

US Army. IIRC, Major.
