Lieutenant General Danilo Errico meets the Austrian Land Forces Commander.

“General Errico visits the Austrian Army”

The official visit of the Chief of General Staff of the Army, Lieutenant General Danilo Errico, in Austria, when he was welcomed, on his arrival, by the Defense Attaché at the Italian Embassy in Vienna, Air Brigade General Giuseppe Gimondo and by the military Attaché for the Army, Colonel Onofrio Picarelli, has just ended.

Afterwards, the Chief of General Staff of the Army met his counterpart, Lieutenant General Franz Reissner, the Austrian Land Forces Commander, and visited the Stiftskaserne, headquarter of the National Defence Academy and of other Units and Commands of the Austrian Army.

The visit continued at RAAB Kaserne, headquarter of the Rapid Operation Command, where General Errico received a briefing about structure and organization by the Commander, Brigade General Habersatter, attended some demonstrations and visited a static exhibition of vehicles and materials from the Austrian Army.

These kind of institutional meetings are a precious opportunity of confrontation between allied and friend armies, with whom often cooperate and collaborate, both in operation abroad and during joint exercises.
