Exercise Cobra Gold 2020 to begin on February 25

1372-n2-Cobra-Gold-2020-Press-Advisory.j

 

 

SATTAHIP:--Thailand and the United States will co-host the annual, multilateral Exercise Cobra Gold in various areas throughout the Kingdom of Thailand from February 25 to March 6, 2020


Exercise Cobra Gold 2020 (CG20) is the 39th iteration of the Cobra Gold series of exercises. The largest regional annual multinational military exercise in the Indo-Pacific, it is one of many annual exercises that serve as visible symbols of the U.S.-Thai defense alliance. CG20 will demonstrate our steadfast commitment towards enhancing critical capabilities and readiness required to address the full spectrum of security challenges in the Indo-Pacific together.

 

CG20 will feature 29 countries, including seven full participating nations, two nations with limited participation, and 20 observing countries, with approximately 5,500 U.S. personnel directly participating in various events both ashore and afloat. The exercise underscores the United States’ and Thailand’s commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific, and is the principal forum for like-minded nations in the regions committed to the rules-based international order to cooperate on shared security challenges.

Welcome and glad to see this exercise is going to happen despite the fear. Hope the training goes smoothly and safely.

In the old days when on leave or visiting a place like this, they would make you pull down your pants when you came back to the ship to check for STD drips.

Wonder if they still do this?

Perhaps they can use their sub/subs in this exercise? Probably the only use they'll have from them. Do they actually have personell that can drive these contraptions? Totatally waste of money imho.

We know the chief event in which they will participate; but if the virus figures continue to rise, will it still go ahead?

No need to dust off his uniform. He never hung it up in the first place.

 

Once a General, always a General.
