Austria continues to deploy MARS Elevated Tactics Systems during Anti-Terror Exercises

With the growing threat of terrorism throughout Europe, Austria continues to hold anti-terror exercises to ensure they are ready in the case of a terrorist attack. Last week the Ministry of Defense hosted AEGIS 16, a national anti-terror exercise focused on facing simultaneous terrorist threats/attacks and coordinating response by both police and military special teams. Einsatzkommando (EKO) Cobra deployed their MARS RDD Elevated Tactics Systems to a simulated threat, attempting to contain it; snipers took position on top of the MARS systems to gain vantage points.

The Defense Minister stated that even though there has been no attack in Austria, as of now, it is necessary to provide the best possible equipment to the responding teams!
