A delegation of the 1st Brigade "Aragón", headed by its Chief, General Martínez-Falero, visited, the 28th and the 29th of November, its "sister" unit in Italy during a training exercise that carried out at the shooting area of Torre di Nebbia (Bari).

Apart from attending to an exercise of tactic group level of the Brigade "Pinerolo", with the use of the medium armoured vehicle Freccia (IFV), Centaur Cavalry and 120mm mortars, the Spanish soldiers made a static exhibition of aids and material which the Post of Digitized Command is equipped with.

This visit is framed inside of the calendar of bilateral activities contemplated in the twinning programme that the Spanish Army has conducted in order to progress in the interoperability with the units of the Armies of allied countries.

Through these encounters, meetings and common instruction activities, it is expected to create professional and personal bounds among the personnel of the different units that make the integration of future combined groups easier in international missions.
