The general explains that the Eurocorps continues to follow NATO rules and procedures for training and operational preparation. "Since the very beginning, nations have equipped the Eurocorps with human resources and technical assets to be able to deploy joint expertise in a land environment," Gen. de Bavinchove relates. Yet, with its smaller size and more directed mission, it can serve as an operational testbed for the Atlantic alliance for future coalition operations. [...]the use of special forces likely will play a role in future Eurocorps actions. Because of this intelligence- sharing venue, we probably are a very efficient corps.
