Givati Drill or GTA?

A week ago, the Givati Brigade embarked on a five-day battle against Hezbollah’s Radwan force – they maneuvered through the northern mountains, evaded mines and fired – all through a computer.

The exercise enabled examining processes within the manpower complex – from the provision of a logistics envelope, the rescue of a stranded vessel, to multi-casualty incident groups.

“If the purpose of a regular brigade (tactical) exercise is to train the junior ranks, a simulated brigade exercise examines headquarters – how to make decisions in real time, how to adapt the program to changes in the field, how to maximize our capabilities and much more,” explains Major Matan Algarbely, the brigade’s operations officer.
