Brunei's large scale military exercise draws to a close

BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, Aug 1 (Borneo Bulletin/ANN): Commander of the Royal Brunei Armed Forces (RBAF) Major General (U) Dato Seri Pahlawan Haji Hamzah Haji Sahat visited the Labi Training Area to witness the culmination of Exercise Hikmat Bersatu VI (HB VI) as participants geared towards the final suppression against the enemy force, marking the end of HB VI Exercise.

This year’s exercise demonstrated that the RBAF’s operations in a joint environment have further strengthened and was deemed effective at both tactical and operational levels since the establishment of the Joint Force Headquarters, particularly in countering non-traditional security threats.

The exercise also involved participants from other government agencies, as well as collaboration with the Gurkha Reserve Unit, Royal Brunei Malay Reserve Regiment, Second Battalion of the Royal Gurkha Rifles and the British Forces Brunei in an effort to support national development through the whole-of-nation approach.

This year marked the sixth series of Exercise Hikmat Bersatu since its inception in 2003, aiming to provide comprehensive training opportunities for the RBAF in a realistic contemporary scenario that focussed on non-traditional security threats, such as counter-terrorism, as well as to assess and validate RBAF’s operational readiness at tactical and operational levels. - Borneo Bulletin/ANN
