NATO Allies wrap up exercise Engineer Thunder 2019
Engineer Thunder 2019, a major Lithuanian-led exercise, wrapped up in Pabrade on Friday (13 September 2019). The exercise, which began on 4 September, mobilised troops from NATO’s enhanced forward presence battlegroup in Lithuania, as well as combat engineers from Latvia, Poland and the United States.
The exercise provided an opportunity for forces to test their engineering skills. Combat engineers fortified defensive positions, demolished enemy fortifications and helped group troops to navigate obstacles, including dense forests and rivers.
