Last year, the Noble Partner-2015 (“Worthy Partner”) exercise involved 400 Georgian and more 200 American troops.

For last year’s maneuvers, Bradley combat vehicles (14 units), lorries and equipment intended for training were specially delivered to Georgia. This year, mechanized and infantry units will be transferred from the United States.

“Georgian military, before receiving American tanks, pass exercises on other types of military equipment from the USA. The army has already received 70 tons of military cargo from the United States and, in addition to tanks, it is still waiting for additional cargo, ”the television company reported.

However, Georgian Defense Minister Tina Khidasheli noted that the matter is not at all in armaments. According to her, “Abrams tanks will appear in Georgia not to demonstrate force, but to prove that the country is not alone.”

"Our task is to bring the situation in the country to that condition, so that, be it a person or any state, before making any wrong decision, I would think twice ... We are not talking about armaments, but we are talking about meeting the most important needs of the Georgian army."

      Of the large NATO, only German sau were, but a NATO command and control point with access to the Ijes system, GPS accurate satellite navigation signal decoding systems, friend-or-foe recognition systems, closed radio communications and reconnaissance systems, and there were two other containers about which Pentagon spokesman Brian Whitman said, “We can’t say what was in the containers, and we have not yet completed the assessment, but none of them contained secret items”)))

      Yes, that's not the point. We could not imagine 20 years ago that the United States and Georgia would conduct exercises, Stalin turned over there 800 times am . And it is not a matter of combat potential, but that we are facing not Georgia with long-standing historical ties, but a pro-Western state with all the consequences, and it will take 15-20 years, and Georgia will be like a far abroad, this is ridiculous and scary. The United States is slowly but surely bending its policy, it is necessary to act ahead of the curve, while we are still defending ourselves. No.

    They say like a mantra that if the United States gives them arms they will be invincible! And when they see that thanks to Russia, such a race as the Georgians still exists, wherever they would be and if they did not extend a helping hand from the Turks, but even though the USA will give them a flying saucer if they trample on Ossetian or Abkhazians, they will comb them so much in a day that they will all turn out in the Stone Age!

      Their tanks, so to speak, as gunpowder will burn if something starts, then they will understand what the Russian soldier is and how he is fighting, they will be wet because they are not in Vietnam or Afghanistan, but Korea will seem like a paradise to them! In fact, they have never been with us in real combat conditions, they did not encounter where the life and fate of the fatherland was at stake, and God forbid they meet, they will understand what they were all dreamers, but the fact is that dreamers also want to live!

    It is time for us to establish friendship with Mexico in the military-technical direction, and to conduct joint exercises in the north of the country, naturally delivering our tanks, air defense systems, Iskander there, so that everything is adult. Moreover, the climate allows you to work with equipment on the street. Well, up to the heap are several EW divisions and a couple of Air Force regiments. All honestly, we are not against the states, we just need to check the equipment in any climate.

    The United States has already helped Georgia, and how did it all end? They don’t want to learn an elementary thing - the United States will help to arm yourself, give instructors, set you on another country, and then get out as you can. Just like children. No wonder in Soviet times they portrayed themselves like that in their short films.

    work on the Noble Partner program has been ongoing since 2013, from the day Georgia expressed its readiness to join the Rapid Response Force, and the United States sponsored Georgia’s participation in this program. ...

    -In 2015, similar exercises were held from May 11 to May 25 at the territory of the military airfield in Vaziani
    The purpose of the exercise: improving the readiness of Georgian units to participate in the NATO rapid reaction forces
    About 600 American and Georgian troops from the Alpha company of the 12th battalion of the first infantry brigade of the Georgian Armed Forces, the first mechanized company of the 42nd battalion of the fourth mechanized brigade and military police platoon took part in the exercises. From the US side, a mechanized company of the 1st brigade tactical group from the 3rd infantry division (part of the US forces in the combined NATO Rapid Reaction Force), as well as an infantry company of the 173rd airborne brigade, were involved.
    As part of the maneuvers on May 2, American heavy military equipment was transferred to Georgia - 14 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles, logistics support vehicles, and also special equipment intended for training.

    In 2011-2014, the Georgian-American Agile Spirit exercises (Agile Spirit - Ed.) Were held annually in Vaziani with the goal of "increasing the compatibility of the Georgian Armed Forces with NATO standards and preparing the Georgian military to participate in international peacekeeping operations."
    ..... in September 2016 in the southern military district it is planned to hold a command and control squadron "Caucasus -2016" .. Defense Minister of the Russian Federation General of the Army Sergei Shoigu today at a conference call.

    "I will separately dwell on the preparation for the strategic command-staff exercise Kavkaz-2016. Against the background of the difficult international military-political situation during the exercise, it is important to assess our capabilities to protect national interests in the South-West strategic direction."

    According to the Minister of Defense, "the troops and forces must work out the issues of combat interaction and effective actions in mountainous areas, taking into account the growth of terrorist threats in the region."

    .. laughing laughing laughing in 2008, the "Caucasus -2008" training course was planned to be held as it should be in September, BUT .... it was held in July ...
