The exercise will be conducted by the Naval Action Commander, Vice-admiral Manuel Garat with participation of the LHD ‘Juan Carlos I’, LPD ‘Galicia’; frigates ‘Blas de Lezo’, ‘Numancia’ and ‘Victoria’; minehunters ‘Segura’, ‘Sella’, ‘Turia’ and ‘Duero’;

1,200 Spanish marines, elements from the Spanish Army and Air Force and several units from the Portuguese Navy (a submarine and a Marine Corps Company).

The first stage of the exercise contemplates the planning and analysis of a fictitious scenario. The second stage, with all the units fully deployed, will test the different capabilities to project the power ashore to manage and successfully settle the supposed crisis.
