Default Russian, US military will counter a mock terrorist attack in joint exercises - 08-05-2011, 06:02 PM

Moscow and Washington will hold joint nuclear security exercises in early August to train in measures for the safe delivery of nuclear warheads.
­According to the scenario, servicemen from the two countries will have to rebuff a terrorist attack during the transportation of a nuclear warhead. “Terrorists” will use homemade explosives to assault the vehicle used to convey the device.

The drills, codenamed Crimson Rider, will be held at the Camp Guernsey Base in Wyoming, the press service of the US State Department has said. The Russian Defense Ministry will send representatives from the department responsible for nuclear and technical security.

The joint nuclear security exercises, which are to focus on counter-terrorism measures, will take place under the auspices of the presidential commission’s working group on bilateral military cooperation. The militaries are expected to exchange tactical and technical experience in providing security for nuclear materials as well as provide training in order to prevent the proliferation of self-made explosive devices.

In August last year, the Russian and US militaries already dealt with terrorists – in the air. The servicemen joined their efforts during exercises called “Vigilant Eagle.” Those exercises entailed the defense of a civilian aircraft from “hijackers,” as well as training in joint operations against terrorists.
