Lithuanian Land Force soldiers attended Denmark-hosted training

February 10-12, staff personnel of the Motorised Infantry Brigade „Iron Wolf" of the Lithuanian Land Force took part in „Errant Knight" exercise held for the Danish Division's units in Nymindegab, Denmark. The event tailored to enhance participants' readiness for peacekeeping operations was also attended by personnel of the Danish Division Staff and staffs of Latvian and Estonian brigades affiliated to the Danish Division, and military of the Danish Division Advising Team - a total of around 100 individuals.


Participants of the training event were introduced to the new Stability Operation Doctrine prepared by the Royal Danish Armed Forces, they completed planning procedures of a fictitious stability operation in compliance with NATO's Military Decision Making Process (MDMP), and other practical tasks.


Affiliation of MIB „Iron Wolf" (Lithuanian Land Force) to the Danish Division took place in 2006 by Memorandum of Understanding on affiliation signed between Chiefs of Defence of Lithuania and Denmark.


Affiliation - is the ability of pre-defined military units of one country to achieve technical, doctrinal, and procedural interoperability with military units of another country allowing to conduct joint operations. Affiliation also allows joint service of both parties in international staffs, joint training events and exercises in order to ensure interoperability of Lithuanian and Danish military units, i.e. their ability to act jointly in international operations.


In its turn Denmark has chosen partnership with the Great Britain-led NATO Allied Rapid Reaction Corps (ARRC).
