Norway to host largest NATO war games in years
October 25, 2018 -- Meer dan 40.000 man komt in Noorwegen samen voor de grootste militaire oefening van de NAVO in recente jaren. Aan de twee weken durende Trident Juncture 18 doen alle leden mee, alsook partners Finland en Zweden.
Germany will be one of the largest contributors, with 8,000 troops and more than 2,000 vehicles, including 100 tanks, German media have reported.
According to Norway’s armed forces, the exercise will test the whole military chain – from troop training at the tactical level, to command over large forces. It will train the troops of the NATO Response Force and forces from other allies and partners, ensuring they can work seamlessly together.
