    Norway to Host NATO’s Exercise Trident Juncture 18

    Norway to Host NATO’s Exercise Trident Juncture 18

    Forsvaret, August 07, 2018 - NATO and Norway are preparing for one of the largest military exercises ever held in the country.

    During some hectic weeks this October and November, more than 40,000 participants from all over NATO and its partners will be coming to Norway for exercise Trident Juncture 2018.

    The live training will be conducted from 25 October to 7 November 2018. A command post exercise (CPX) will be held 14–23 November 2018.

    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.

    Since 2014, collective defence has become a more prominent feature of NATO, due to the changes in the global security situation. In order to train and test NATO's ability to plan and conduct a major collective defence operation, the Alliance has held several large-scale exercises. This autumn, the turn has come to Norway.

    Norway offered to host Trident Juncture 18, and NATO accepted the offer more than four years ago. As the exercise has air, sea and land elements, Norway offers the possibility to train realistically in all of these domains. The cold and wet weather will pose additional challenges for NATO troops, and will train them to operate in extreme conditions.

    The exercise will take place in central and eastern Norway and the surrounding areas of the North Atlantic and the Baltic Sea, including Iceland and the airspace of Finland and Sweden.
