Keeping efforts throughout the world, the Slovene Light Battalion Battle Group (LBBG) is nearing completion of a rigorous course of training and readiness. The LBBG, consisting of 1,100 soldiers, represents one-eighth of Slovenia’s standing army and is the largest deployment the Slovenian Armed Forces have conducted outside of their borders.
This December, Battle Eye System completed first round of trials in a heterogeneous multi-platform environment of the LBBG, integrating three different combat nets, and three different vehicle platforms including the well known Kobra CBRN, and Patria vehicles along with older Valuk 6×6 APCs.
Addition of a state of the art C4I systems, as a true force multiplier would significantly increase combat capabilities, enable easier integration into NATO rapid reaction force.
Since 2007, Slovenian troops have trained with U.S. and multinational troops in Germany to prepare for a variety of missions. Future joint training will continue to emphasize a professional and expeditionary mindset concentrating on Special Forces units, logistics, combat medicine, and other skill sets needed by Slovene forces currently engaged in NATO missions abroad.
After 7 months, S&T Defence successfully completed 6×6 Valuk vehicles maintenance and upgrade with deployed troops in Kosovo.
Latest upgrades will lend SAF greater flexibility in integration of Valuk vehicles into national C4I system, thus increasing survive ability in the battlefield.
Military attaches accredited to Slovenia, who are attending a regular round of consultations, payed a visit to S&T defence. They showed a lot of interest in C4I and training and simulation products produced by the S&T. A CBRN Cobra vehicle from Slovenian Armed Forces was also on display at S&T defence as a showcase of joint integration effort with the EM.Tronic company.
S&T Defence, would like to thank all the attending attaches and the MOD for attending, and organizing this wonderful meeting.
