Joint Military Exercises for Greek and American Army

Military ExercisesLately, several joint military exercises have been organized between elite units of Greek and American armed forces.
The U.S. Army, recognizing the excellence and the abilities of the Greek Army, recently organized a series of various military exercises and simulations on land and sea, in collaboration with Greek armed forces.
The military operations took place from March 8 to March 9, in Greece. For military operations on land, the Greek army used HUMMER vehicles, YAMAHA motorcycles and Leopard battle tanks. For air operations, the Hellenic Air Force used Apache attack helicopters, Huey helicopters and the new NH-90 transport helicopters. What was particularly impressive, was the moment when Greek Apache helicopters launched Hellfire missiles against targets.
The U.S. Air Force used Sikorsky CH-53 helicopters, V-22 OSPREY helicopters — impressive for their vertical takeoff and landing capabilities — and Huey helicopters.
The 2-day joint military operations were attended by 90 U.S. Commandos and 40 officers of the U.S. Air Force.
