More than 350 people from 31 NATO nations, including Finland for the first time, are taking part. The exercise aims to test and improve NATO’s ability to deter and defend its territory against potential threats. The training scenario will simulate a hypothetical NATO Article 5 situation involving multiple domains such as land, air, sea, space, and cyberspace. The tailored command and control (C2) programme provides participants with an excellent opportunity to develop their C2 skills in a multinational environment.
