Sir Nick Carter GCB CBE DSO ADC Gen, on a Royal Air Force CH-47 Chinook helicopter at Royal Air Force Fairford, England, Nov. 18, 2020, in support of NATO Exercise Loyal Leda 2020 (LOLE20). Allied Land Command (LANDCOM) conducted a combat readiness evaluation on the NATO Headquarters Allied Rapid Reaction Corp (ARRC) during LOLE20, which took place at RAF Fairford and South Cerney, England, Nov. 9-19, 2020. This was a complex multi-domain exercise designed to test the war-fighting capabilities of the ARRC in a COVID-19 environment including combat operations. LOLE20 was a key NATO exercise to validate and certify the Gloucester-based ARRC as a NATO war-fighting corps at full operational readiness, capable of commanding up to 120,000 multinational troops across a full spectrum of military operations.
