    The British Army’s rapid reaction force has been put through its paces on a demanding training exercise in Italy. Exercise Eagle's Eye saw reconnaissance troops from 16 Air Assault Brigade working alongside the Italian Brigata Paracadutisti Folgore. The aim of the training was to test the Brigade’s full range of Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition, and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) capabilities and share techniques and tactics with their Italian counterparts. The British units taking part included D Sqn Household Cavalry Regiment, 5th Regiment Royal Artillery, 23 Engineer Regiment (Air Assault), 3rd Battalion The Parachute Regiment and Pathfinders. All provide soldiers for the Air Assault Task Force (AATF), which is ready to deploy anywhere in the world at short notice to conduct the full spectrum of military operations, from non-combatant evacuation operations to war fighting.
