U.S. Air Force Airmen from the 379th, 380th, and 322d Air Expeditionary Wings, alongside U.S. Army and Royal Air Force personnel joined together to strengthen chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) response capabilities at Al Udeid Air Base.


The combined exercise was designed to enhance regional military interoperability, while processing development and honing the skills necessary to prepare for, respond to, and recover from a CBRN attack or incident.


Service members practiced identifying biological agents such as ricin and anthrax, improving upon their tactics, techniques and procedures. Our war fighters challenge themselves on the daily, ensuring they are ready to respond to aggression in the region.
