HOHENFELS, Germany (Oct. 20, 2011) -- The Army's newest Full Spectrum Training Environment exercise, ongoing now until Oct. 22 at the Joint Multinational Training Command's Hohenfels training area, uses a wrap-around training environment which combines the physical training area with computer-aided synthetic expansion of the battlefield to enhance exercise play.

The FSTE simultaneously incorporates the complexities of 21st-century threats such as adaptive hybrid elements, terrorists and criminals, irregular and conventional forces into a training event.

As part of the exercise, Soldiers from the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team and those from a number of coalition nations are being supported by the 12th Combat Aviation Brigade. Chinooks, Blackhawks, and Apache gunships provided air support to Soldiers conducting an air assault into an objective as part of the Full Spectrum Training Environment exercise.
