Exercise Cougar Salvo was the largest military
exercise held on civilian lands in British Columbia since the end of the
Second World War in
1945. Several hundred personnel deployed to the Kamloops area to conduct combined
arms collective training in a "Three Block War" scenario - in other words,
infantry, armoured, engineers, artillery and the supporting trades came together to
operate as a larger formation, carrying out simulated peace support,
operations, and war fighting missions.
Highlanders fielded a sizeable force during this Exercise, held from 18 to 25 March 2005.
