On Thursday, the Egyptian Armed Forces and the Royal Saudi Land Forces (RSLF) concluded their Tabuk-5 maneuvers that were conducted in Saudi Arabia’s northwestern region.
Tabuk-5 drill concluded its final phase in the presence of the Commander of the Northwest Region Maj. General Hussein bin Saeed Al-Qahtani and a number of senior officers from both sides.
The “Tabuk 5” exercise began last week. Many lectures have been given over the past days with the aim to unify the training concepts and coordinate efforts, as well as achieve integration between forces from both sides.
Participants implemented a number of joint training tasks in regular and irregular operations, as well as training in planning and coordinating joint operations and modern warfare methods.
They also carried out ambushes, raids, and reconnaissance using a drone, air incursions, combat in built-up areas, and implemented landing and pick-up exercises, tactical parachute jumping, and free jumping.
The drill aims to train the troops in reconnaissance work as well as methods to occupy defense areas and counter the enemies using the multiple integrated laser engagement system (MILES).
High levels of training could be seen during the exercise.
