The Brigade "Guadarrama" XII continues its activity in Latvia, as part of its deployment in NATO's eFP Battle Group Latvia.
On August 4, at the Latvian base of Camp Ādaži, the Mechanized Infantry Company "Pelayo" carried out a live fire exercise, which was published today on the Facebook page of the eFP Battle Group Latvia. You can see those images here.
