Around 1,800 troops from NATO Allies Bulgaria, Canada, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania and Spain are taking part in the Romania-led exercise SCORPIONS FURY 18 from 5 to 16 November.
This will include computer-assisted training, live-firings and other field training exercises at the Joint National Training Centre in Cincu, Romania.
The exercise aims to certify the South-East Multinational Brigade Headquarters for full capability, by planning and executing a NATO Article 5 operation over assigned forces within a command post exercise.
The South-East Multinational Brigade is part of NATO’s enhanced forward presence in the eastern part of the Alliance and the Black Sea region, as part of NATO’s response to a more challenging security environment. It conducts training, exercises and operations contributing to collective defence of Alliance territory and populations.
