As a part of a newly launched Wargaming Studies and Simulations Programme at the Casimir Pulaski Foundation, the Foundation in cooperation with the Potomac Foundation, organises a war game based upon Potomac’s proprietary HEGEMON computer-based simulation platform. The event takes place from the 23rd to the 26th of January, 2017 in Warsaw.
The purpose of the Simulation is to assist in the development of a regional and NATO accepted understanding of the nature of the Russian military threat to the Baltic States and Poland. The Baltic States and Sweden are already employing the HEGEMON Baltic Campaign Simulation to identify force structure and defence planning requirements for defeating Russian General Staff plans for the occupation of the Baltic States and the disintegration of the European Union and NATO.
Among the confirmed players are some notable personalities such as: gen. Philip Breedlove, a former commander of the NATO Forces in Europe, and dr Phillip Karber, the Potomac Foundation President and one of the most prominent experts in Russian Armed Forces, as well as Polish and foreign government representatives dealing with national security issues.
A post-event report will be given to the Polish Minister of Defence, Mr. Antoni Macierewicz and the Deputy Minister of Defence, Mr. Tomasz Szatkowski, who supervises the Strategic Defence Review.
The HEGEMON Baltic Campaign game will be held at the National Stadium in Warsaw, where 2016 NATO Summit, from the 8th of July to 9th of July, took place last year.
This event is realised in the framework of Road to Warsaw Security Forum 2017.
