Exercise Virgo - NATO Special Forces Ex

Postby RichCliff on Sun 31 Jan 2016, 5:03 pm

A few from a sunny Salisbury Plain on Thursday 28th January.

British, Swiss and Norwegian Special Forces conducted various insertion/extraction and fighting in built up areas techniques around the Plain but mostly at the FIBUA villages of Imber and Copehill Down and a few outlying areas over the east after dark.

Wasn't expecting very good access at all and not expecting to see much either but as soon as we turned up at 9am it was non stop for the morning with something i've never witnessed myself before, a SPIES extraction (quite a few were conducted).
