Soldiers in civilian clothes in the 2018 'Robin Sage'.
|Perpetrators||U.S. Army, Green Berets|
|Description||Military exercise training in both sides in unconventional warfare, both supporting guerillas and practicing counter-insurgency]]|
Pineland’s legitimate government, which was friendly towards the United States, has been deposed via a coup. Guerilla forces have now risen up in an attempt to fight against this occupying force, and the Green Berets are infiltrating the country to both assist and train the guerilla forces. The exercise will of course give experience in counter-insurgency as well.
The candidates face off against seasoned service members from units across Fort Bragg, as well as specially trained civilians. The setting is “characterized by armed conflict,” forcing the soldiers to solve problems in a real world setting. “These military members act as realistic opposing forces and guerrilla freedom fighters, also known as Pineland resistance movement.”
The 2022 two-week exercise will be staged Jan. 22-Feb. 4 on privately owned land. It will be realistic enough to include the sounds of gunfire (blanks) and flares. Exact times, locations and exercise specifics are not provided to the public.
