The Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army (JAF), along with the American and British Armies, concluded a military exercise codenamed ‘Desert Storm 2022’.
In a statement, JAF said the military exercise came under directives by His Majesty King Abdullah II to improve the capabilities and preparedness of the Army in all fields.
The multi-stage exercise aimed to establish operational and tactical alignment between the participating armies, deploy ground and air forces firepower to simulate combat in a high-risk operational environment, and achieve goals quickly and with minimal risks to ground forces.
The drill, according to JAF, saw the use of satellite- and laser-guided munitions, and high-precision projectiles. Units from the Royal Artillery Force, the Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan Brigade/ Rapid Intervention, F16s of the Royal Jordanian Air Force and F15s of the US Air Force participated in the exercise.
The Army noted that the exercise simulated operational challenges now facing armies throughout the world and how to achieve success following ground and air strikes.
