Antonov 124, the second largest aircraft in the world, is a heavy-duty aircraft that can carry up to 150 tons of equipment, giving the British Army the opportunity to deliver a large amount of cargo to Bosnia and Herzegovina, if the Bosnian authorities demand it.
The "Quick Response 2017" is an exercise in peacekeeping operations under the direction of EUFOR. The exercise will be held from October 11th to October 15th in Sarajevo, Pazaric and Kalinovik.
This will be the first time that Bosnia and Herzegovina law enforcement agencies, Bosnia and Herzegovina Armed Forces and EUFOR are trained together in a realistic scenario, in order to verify their plans for crisis situations.
