Ex SHAMBULIA ADUI was a final Field Tactical Exercise (FTX) conducted by students of JCSC 17. It was a one sided exercise with a controlled enemy and designed to assess student officers in various aspects of planning and conduct of operations of war. The exercise was conducted in the general area of GABIRO from 1 to 10 October 2021.
The exercise was set based on a conventional warfare scenario. It was a controlled exercise with a simulated Division HQ manned by Directing Staff (DS). Students played the roles of Bde Comd and Staff, support arms, Bn Comds as well as Coy Comds. The enemy was depicted at various strength determined by the control HQ.
The exercise was overseen by the Commandant RDFCSC, Brig Didas NDAHIRO. The Comdt stressed the most important prerequisite for training efficiency-realism because realism makes it possible to train just the way you operate.
