10th AAMDC headed to Latvia for exercise Tobruq Arrows 2020

RHEINLAND-PFALZ, Germany – U.S. Army Europe’s 10th Army Air and Missile Defense Command will participate in exercise Tobruq Arrows 2020 June 5-15, in Jurmalciems, Latvia.

Tobruq Arrows is a Latvian-led, multinational short-range air defense exercise intended to enhance interoperability among NATO forces and increase readiness through the integration of land component air missile defense capabilities.

Participating U.S. Army units include the 164th Air Defense Artillery Brigade and the 5th Battalion, 4th Air Defense Artillery Regiment.

During the exercise U.S. air defense assets will conduct an Avenger Air Defense System live-fire exercise, demonstrate the Sentinel Radars' beyond the-line-of-sight capabilities, integrate with allied forces to develop a common air picture through the NATO mission command architecture, and then push that information from Latvia to the 10th AAMDC headquarters at Rhine Ordinance Barracks, Germany. 

All COVID-19 precautionary measures will be taken to ensure the health and protection of participating armed forces and the local population.

"The Tobruq Arrows exercise is a prime example of the U.S. standing solidly with our NATO allies and demonstrating our unwavering commitment to the collective defense of the Baltic region, despite the global COVID-19 pandemic," said Col. Bruce Bredlow, 10th AAMDC deputy commanding officer.
