Valiant Shield 2014、漢光30,與萬鈞

Comment
Biennial “Valiant Shield 2014,” which comprises of Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps as well as Guam National Guardsmen, is the largest U.S.-only military joint maneuver on Pacific Ocean for field training. 


Without explanation, the largest annual military maneuver “Han-Guang 30” of Taiwan was postponed to meet “Valiant Shield 2014.”  
Both kicked off on September 15. 

For the first time, MYJ boarded a navy vessel to review “Han-Guang 30” maneuver, which implied the verification of “Wan-Jun Exercise” to evacuate Taiwan’s C-in-C in time of war.

這是美軍陸、海、空、陸戰隊,與關島國民兵的全面性演習。
與漢光演習同步,馬首度到海上演習,是另一種形式的「萬鈞」演習。







美軍在西太平洋舉行大規模演習○共同社 (2014.08.17) http://tchina.kyodonews.jp/news/2014/09/82896.html
【共同社關島917日電】美軍17日向共同社等部分媒體展示了在西太平洋美屬關島海域舉行的勇敢之盾大規模演習過程。美海軍部署在橫須賀基地(位於神奈川縣橫須賀市)的核動力航母喬治·華盛頓號等2艘航母也參與軍演。

  此次軍演15日拉開帷幕,動用了19艘艦船、200多架軍用機,動員約1.8萬名士兵,為美軍單獨實施的最大規模演習。軍演主要針對被指擴軍和海洋活動頻繁的中國,意在顯示美軍在太平洋的影響力。

  中國正強化導彈作戰能力,並推進阻止美國航母等靠近的近海防禦戰略。指揮演習的第七艦隊副司令Russell Allen表示演習的目的之一是磨練應對近海防禦戰略的能力,不點名地強調演習旨在針對中國提高美軍的綜合應對能力。

  喬治·華盛頓17日被部署在關島以東約130公里海域。在強降雨中反復進行了以厚木基地(位於神奈川縣大和市等地)的FA18戰機為中心的出擊訓練,但演習的具體假想情況並未公開

  部署在嘉手納基地(位於沖繩縣)的陸軍愛國者地對空導彈和空軍F-15戰機也參與演習。海軍陸戰隊則動用了普天間基地(位於沖繩縣宜野灣市)的MV-22“魚鷹運輸機。

  12,以美國本土西海岸的聖達戈為母港的卡爾·文森號航母在駛往演習海域的途中,在西太平洋威克島以西約470公里處發生了2艦載FA18戰機在訓練過程中墜機的事故,導致1名飛行員下落不明,但該航母仍按原定計劃參加了演習。(完)


Exercise Valiant Shield officially begins on TinianStaff Sgt.  Warren Peace (2014.09.15) http://www.public.navy.mil/surfor/Pages/ExerciseValiantShieldofficiallybeginsonTinian.aspx#.VBorcpSSySo
TINIAN, North Marianas Islands – U.S. service members spent the past two weeks on Tinian preparing the site for participants in Valiant Shield 2014, which commenced Sept.  15 at various locations on land and in the sea, in and around Tinian and Guam.    
The approximately 450 Marines, U.S. Navy Sailors and Guam National Guardsmen are part of the estimated 18,000 U.S. forces from the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps, as well as two aircraft carriers, 19 surface ships, and more than 200 aircraft, participating in Valiant Shield.

“There are other entities coming, and we have laid down a supporting position to provide the logistics the other units need so they can focus on their mission,” said Lt. Col. James Whiteker, the site commander for Tinian and the commanding officer of Marine Wing Support Squadron 171, Marine Aircraft Group 12, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, III Marine Expeditionary Force

The exercise would be difficult for any other unit outside of III MEF, according to Whiteker, a native of Midland, Texas.  The MEF has been regularly deploying to different austere locations in recent years to conduct expeditionary and amphibious training. 

Units with III MEF routinely participate in exercises in countries such as Mongolia, Thailand, the Philippines and Australia.   They are supporting VS14 with Marines from 5th Battalion, 11th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, I MEF, 3rd Marine Logistics Group, III MEF, and Marine Air Control Group 18 and MWSS-171, both with 1st MAW.

The Marines on Tinian began preparing for the exercise about two weeks ago, according to Whiteker.  They have set up multiple tents, chow halls, gyms and even a laundry system to ensure the troops are taken care while serving in a tropical environment. 

“The experience our forces gain from working together helps us to provide the best possible support for our allies, partners, and friends in the region,” said Rear Adm. Russell Allen, U.S. Pacific Fleet Valiant Shield exercise lead.  “We will continue to be a credible, ready force in this region for decades to come.

Valiant Shield is a U.S.-only exercise integrating U.S. Navy, Air Force, Army and Marine Corps assets, offering joint operational experience to develop capabilities that provide a full range of options to defend U.S. interests and those of its allies and partners.  VS14 is scheduled to run through Sept.  23.


Valiant Shield Exercise Kicks Off in PacificValiant Shield Joint Information Bureau (2014.09.14)
ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, Guam - Exercise Valiant Shield 2014 kicked off with more than 18,000 joint force service members from 30 units, including 200 aircraft and 20 ships in, and around, the island of Guam beginning Sept. 15. 

The exercise will demonstrate a wide range of capabilities designed to test the inherent flexibility of joint forces.  These capabilities range from maritime security operations, anti-submarine, air defense and space and cyber warfighting proficiencies in an environment that could not be simulated otherwise. 

When you think of the U.S. military in the Pacific, you want credible combat power,” said Rear Adm. Russell Allen, Valiant Shield exercise director.  “The true test of a force is its ability to detect, track and engage targets with live sensors and weapons systems.  The U.S. military does that more than anyone.  Valiant Shield 2014 focuses on integrated training that helps us do it even better.”

Valiant Shield is a U.S.-only, biennial field training exercise with a focus on integration of joint training among U.S. forces.  This training enables real-world proficiency in sustaining joint forces through detecting, locating, tracking and engaging units at sea, in the air, on land and in cyberspace in response to a range of mission areas. 

The lessons learned from exercises like VS14 help the U.S. develop regional and global power projection capabilities and enhance its ability to defend its interests and those of its allies and partners around the world. 

“Training like this is absolutely invaluable.  It provides the deterrence and stabilizing effects of an integrated force that is ready at the outset of a contingency without delays for buildups or extensive mission rehearsal,” Allen said.  “It refines the military’s ability to respond to crisis across the spectrum of operations from humanitarian assistance and disaster relief to armed conflict. 

“Simply stated, the experience our forces gain from working together helps us to provide the best possible support to our allies, partners, and friends in the region for a wide variety of missions, when and where they’re needed most.”

Valiant Shield integrates U.S. Navy, Air Force, Army and Marine Corps assets in a blue-water environment, refining their ability to present a seamless joint force and respond effectively to any contingency in a timely manner.


U.S. Pacific Command Forces Come Together for Valiant Shield 2014U.S. Pacific Fleet Public Affairs (2014.09.08)
PEARL HARBOR - Forces from the U.S. Pacific Command are scheduled to participate in Exercise Valiant Shield (VS) scheduled for Sept.  15-23, on Guam and around the Marianas Island Range Complex.  Participants include two aircraft carriers, 19 surface ships, more than 200 aircraft and an estimated 18,000 personnel from the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps. 

Valiant Shield is a U.S.-only, biennial field training exercise (FTX) with a focus on integration of joint training among U.S. forces.  This training enables real-world proficiency in sustaining joint forces through detecting, locating, tracking and engaging units at sea, in the air, on land, and in cyberspace in response to a range of mission areas. 

The participating forces will exercise a wide range of capabilities and demonstrate the inherent flexibility of joint forces.  These capabilities range from maritime security operations to anti-submarine and air defense exercises and complex warfighting. 

The lessons learned from exercises like VS14 will assist the U.S. in continuing to develop regional and global power projection capabilities that provide a full range of options to succeed in defense of its interests and those of its allies and partners around the world. 

The VS series is aimed at developing a "pre-integrated" joint force built from habitual relationships.  This force builds interoperable and complementary cross-domain capabilities and benefits from realistic, shared training enhancing the flexibility to develop new tactics, techniques, and procedures as operational conditions dictate.  Such forces will provide the deterrence and stabilizing effects of a force-in-being, ready at the outset of a contingency without delays for buildups or extensive mission rehearsal. 

This is the fifth exercise in the Valiant Shield series that began in 2006.
