Exercise Brilliant Jump Ensures NATO Troops Are Ready to Deploy in Time of Crisis
Trondheim, Norway - Exercise Brilliant Jump 2018, conducted in Norway, drew to a close yesterday with participating forces being designated fully operational. As part of the exercise play a number of units deployed to the exercise area and then adopted a protective stance in accordance with standardized NATO procedures; just as they would in a real military operation in a crisis area.
The exercise, led by NATO’s Joint Force Command Brunssum in close coordination with the NATO Rapid Deployable Corps Italy, clearly demonstrated how NATO forces, command structures and associated military activities provide the best visible example of NATO readiness, the Alliance’s ability to swiftly deploy to counter threats to our collective security and, at the same time, assure member nations and their populations of NATO’s ability and commitment to protect them.
