WEEK 9 - NORTHERN EUROPE OPERATIONAL UPDATE

JTAC TRAINING UNDERWAY IN EXERCISE FURIOUS WOLF

From 15 February to 12 March, Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTACs) from the enhanced Forward Presence Battlegroups (eFP BGs) combine with NATO’s Air Policing crews for a major training exercise in Estonia and Lithuania.

Exercise Furious Wolf will see JTAC specialists from 8 NATO nations rehearsing their Close Air Support skills. It’s of extreme importance for NATO units to continue their training throughout the year so as to maintain the range of capabilities that can be drawn upon in support of collective defence.

MARITIME EXERCISE DYNAMIC GUARD BEGINS

Standing NATO Maritime Group 1 has been joined by supporting NATO and Norwegian maritime assets off the coast of Norway to conduct Exercise Dynamic Guard. The exercise focuses on Electronic Warfare and Anti-Ship Missile Defence. Dynamic Guard is one of many NATO exercises that allows SNMG1 to continue its work promoting and reinforcing a rules-based international order.

US B-1B BOMBERS ARRIVE IN NORWAY

Monday 22 February, B-1B Lancer bombers of the United States Air Force (USAF) landed at the Royal Norwegian Air Force (RNAF) Ørland Main Air Station. The USAF aircraft will conduct joint training with the RNAF whilst in Norway as well as participate in Exercise Dynamic Guard.

This is a significant event as it marks the first time that Norway has played host to the US Bombers and symbolises the strengthening transatlantic link that the Alliance has always been proud to showcase.
