HQ ARRC conducts ROC drill for Exercise ARRCADE Fusion 2014
Nov 5, 2014
(St. Mawgan, Cornwall) - The Rehearsal of Concept drill—commonly referred to as a ROC drill—is an important tool in the commander’s arsenal for planning and executing complex events. One such complicated undertaking that will benefit from a ROC drill is the execution of Exercise ARRCADE Fusion 2014 (Ex AF 14), the largest exercise of its kind in the UK mandated by NATO.
For Headquarters Allied Rapid Reaction Corps (HQ ARRC), Ex AF 14 involves the movement of more than 2000 personnel to include reservists, civil servants, and contractors augmenting with HQ ARRC and its 15 partner nations to include Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Jordan.
The one-day ROC held November 5, 2014, is to ensure that HQ ARRC and all personnel conducting the exercise understood their roles and are able to effectively execute battle plans, as well as ensuring the commander’s intent and guidance have been met.
