Senior Lieutenant General Nguyen Phuong Nam, Deputy Chief of the General Staff, and Lieutenant General Le Hien Van, Deputy Director of the GDP, co-chaired the exercise with participants from the  four departments.

At the event

The exercise aimed to evaluate abilities of the chains-of-command of the participating units in directing their subordinates to follow the procedures for combat readiness shifting.

During the drill, the participants practiced shifting their units from the regular combat readiness posture to higher levels according to assumed scenarios designed in line with the reality. The participants were also required to closely follow situational developments, deal with arising issues and coordinate with each other in performing their missions.

After the exercise, participants had a meeting to draw lessons to perform better in the next drill.
