This complex exercise will take place in the wider area and airspace in Slovenia and will be supported by several air assets, including helicopters, uncrewed aerial systems as well as jets and propeller aircraft.

The deployed aircraft will operate mainly from Cerklje ob Krki and Brnik Air Bases in Slovenia, while some of the assets will fly out of their home bases for carrying out Close Air Support training, convoy overwatch as well as other operations in coordination with the ground forces.

Slovenian Air Force commander COL GAUBE said: “We have once again set up the conditions for Allies and Partners to train their Air-Land-Integration skillsets in a safe environment.

“It is key that with this exercise we offer a multinational environment allowing our specialists to train and apply standardised tactics, techniques and procedures in a theatre-realistic setting.”

During the first week of the exercise, the deployed multinational soldiers will take part in familiarisation and indoctrination phase, command-and-control structures established by Slovenian forces to facilitate safe execution of drills.

The remaining training activities will primarily take place from four locations, including the main Slovenian Armed Forces training area in Postojna, general area of Bohinj, Idrija and Bela Krajina.
