Over 500 Estonian troops are participating in Trident Juncture 2015, NATO's "exercise of a decade", from October 21-November 6.

The exercise involves 36,000 personnel from more than 30 NATO allied and partner nations, as well as 60 ships and 140 aircraft. Air, land, maritime, and special forces will participate simultaneously in 16 locations throughout Italy, Portugal, Spain, the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea and also Canada, Norway, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. It's the largest joint exercise since Strong Resolve in 2002.

According to the official statement, "Trident Juncture 2015 will demonstrate NATO’s new increased level of ambition in joint modern warfare and will show-case a capable, forward-leading Alliance equipped with the appropriate capability and capacity to meet present and future security challenges." The exercise also allows NATO to test the state of its Very High Readiness Joint Task Force, the creation of which was agreed at Wales summit in 2014.
