The object of the exercise is to build the participants’ knowledge and skills within their function. This is for the individual soldier, the leader as well as for staff functions. There is also the opportunity of educating and training the individual soldier in a secondary function, or in a certain area in which the individual wants to test him- or herself.
Individual military skills, command and control, orders, logistic support, signal communications, public information and press policies will be exercised. All subjects can be trained. ​
The exercise also gives the well trained soldier the opportunity to be trained in an environment that requires extra physical shape and stamina of the soldier
