The US-led Exercise Saber Junction 20 kicked off on August the 10th in Germany.

More than 4,000 soldiers from NATO Allies and partner nations are participating in this exercise, including soldiers from Albania, Georgia, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, North Macedonia, Romania and the Ukraine.

NATO say that this annual exercise takes place at the Grafenwoehr and Hohenfels training areas in Germany until the 27th of August.

“Saber Junction 20 is designed to execute land operations in a joint and combined environment and to promote/sustain interoperability amongst participating NATO Allies and partner nations. A range of training scenarios highlight the complexities of a modern battlefield and promote large-scale collective training.”

Mmmm Moldova. I always thought they were Russian sphere but I guess with Transniestr or however you spell it they are moving towards pro NATO? Don’t know much about the Albanian military. Good chance for them to learn from the US in terms of logistics and combined arms?

It’s important for these Countries to work together as they’re all on Russias doorstep, training together regularly should be the policy for these NATO Allies and partners.

The Balts have gained a lot of combat experience in Afghanistan, for example, and can bring their field robustness to the table; they really take some beating for their ability to weather climates and survive to fight; that other NATO MS are inculcated alongside some very worthy allies is a very good moment.


Thank you for that insight. I imagine recent Ukrainian experience is shared too
