LANDCOM Supports NATO interoperability Evaluation During Ukrainian Armed Forces National Exercise BLACK HORSE

#LANDCOM supported the transformation of [TAG] Ukrainian Armed Forces to NATO standards during Ukrainian National Exercise BLACK HORSE from November 11-15, 2019.

During this time, Ukrainian Armed Forces conducted a Level 1 Self-Evaluation Level of a Ukrainian Air Assault Company within the framework of the NATO Operational Capabilities Concept Evaluation and Feedback Programme (OCC E&F). 

LANDCOM’s Lt. Col. Tino Kohlmann, a NATO senior monitor, and LTC Olaf Thase, a NATO junior monitor, both of the German Army, monitored the evaluation and ensured the outcome of the evaluation with respect to the OCC E&F programme. LANDCOM reinforced the Ukrainian evaluation team with German Army Master Sgt. Peter Rudolph and Canadian Army Sgt. First Class Gregory Slate.

The aim of the OCC E&F Programme is to improve the levels of interoperability and operational capabilities of partner units in order to enhance the operational relationship between the Alliance and
partners contributing to NATO-led operations and to the NATO Response Force (NRF).
