The "Taurinense" in joint training with the French Army and the Kingdom of Qatar.

International training for the Third Regiment

​Last week, at the district of Baudenasca, the "Gold Fenix" exercise was ended. The exercise saw the 3rd Regiment mountain troops involved in a series of training activities together with soldiers from the French Army and the Kingdom of Qatar.

The exercise, organized and conducted by the 3rd Alpine Regiment of "Taurinense" Brigade together with the 32nd Sappers Engineer Regiment, aimed to raise the operational capacity of the personnel to move, live and fight in an urbanized environment, in high intensity of multinational contexts. Through the comparison with different military realities and in a difficult environment such as the urban one, the movement capacities have been improved. Then, thanks to the training facilities supplied to the 3rd Alpine Regiment, these capabilities have been implemented with a training to overcome obstacles, both natural, such as rock cliffs, and artificial ones.

The development of fighting skills was also implemented thanks to the simulation systems supplied to the Armed Forces, allowing to recreate, in total safety and with almost no environmental impact, the complexity and difficulty of operational scenarios.

These operational scenario was realized to offer a continuous progression of difficulty levels, with the aim of leading both the Alpine and Taurinense mountain troops, and the French “chasseur alpins” and the Qatari military, to face increasingly complex situations, allowing an effective mix and a successfull exchange of knowledge on a technical-tactical level.
