The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:
13 Nov. 2018 -- Vice Adm. Charles Richard, who took command in August, drew attention during the change of command ceremony by telling the force to “prepare for battle.”
He is moving ahead with a plan that includes refocusing training and certification on warfighting and developing new tools and concepts to support high-end submarine combat.
The new aggressor squadron will be “a cadre that does nothing but emulate red in all of our training and certification exercises, Richard says. “We’re taking a page from naval aviation and we’re establishing an aggressor squadron with a team that will become experts in employing our adversaries’ potential capabilities and then set them up to be able to go head-to-head with our units so that we’re always training against what we think is the highest fidelity simulation I can give them in terms of what they might be able to expect when they go into combat.”
