The Joint Warrior 202 exercise will take place in Scottish waters from 4 – 15 October. Organised by the Ministry of Defence (MoD), Joint Warrior is part of a major programme of exercises involving land forces, warships, submarines and aircraft from NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation) partners in UK waters.
These exercises usually take place bi-annually in spring and autumn. An important part of Joint Warrior will take place to the north, west and east of Scotland. The exercise runs through a range of scenarios, including crisis and conflict situations, that could be realistically encountered in operations – disputed territory, terrorist activity, piracy and more.
This massive multinational exercise delivers specialist maritime training, bringing together the theatres of air, surface, underwater and amphibious forces.
