Over 800 vehicles take part in UK exercise «Exercise Tractable»

Over 1300 military personnel and 800 vehicles have been at Bulford in a mighty display of military strength by the Salisbury Plain based 3rd (UK) Division.

Named ‘Exercise Tractable’ armoured vehicles, including Challenger 2 tanks, have been tested at Old Carter Barracks to ensure they’re ready to be deployed at short notice.

Formed of four Brigades based in Tidworth, Bulford, Germany and Aldershot, the division is the only one to be at a continual operational readiness in the UK, which means it can be deployed as and when required.

The exercise, which lasts approximately a month, is often seen as a good training technique for soldiers to become familiar with the same equipment they would be using at war.
