'Furious Wolf' exercises on the prowl in Latvia

From January 15 to 19, the "Furious Wolf 24" military exercises organized by the Air Support Controllers of the Mechanized Infantry Brigade of the Ground Forces and the NATO Extended Presence Battle Group in Latvia will take place in Ādaži and Sigulda districts.

Furious Wolf 24 exercises are regularly held in all three Baltic countries and their purpose is to practice the integration of close air support to support units in and outside the urban environment.

Close air support controllers from the United States of America, the Czech Republic, France, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Norway and Germany, as well as Joint Fire Observers and Close Air Support Controllers of the Mechanized Infantry Brigade, together with an unmanned aerial vehicle from the 1st Riga Brigade and the 27th Infantry Battalion of the National Guard will take part in the exercise.

"Such military exercises significantly improve the understanding of the role of units in the performance of joint tasks and make an inestimable contribution to the comprehensive defense of the country by facilitating the performance of the host country's support functions to incoming units of allied countries," said an Armed Forces release.

Within the framework of the military exercise, low-altitude flights by fighter jets will take place both in daylight and in the dark, and residents along the flightpaths are being asked for an understanding attitude. The movement of military equipment and soldiers along the main and regional roads of Latvia is also planned and is no cause for alarm.
