    Sweden is contributing to Trident Juncture 18 by providing qualified troops from all Swedish Armed Forces combat forces. This exercise will enhance our ability to defend Sweden and our national capabilities, while also strengthening our cooperation with Finland, the US, Norway and NATO. Our naval and air forces will be preparing for their future participation in the rapid-reaction NATO Response Force (NRF) during the exercise, and Army troops will be on exercises to reinforce brigade capability. Host nation support will also be provided to NATO troops based in Sweden during the exercise.

    Trident Juncture 18 is one of NATO’s biggest exercises and will be taking place in Norway in the autumn of 2018. The aim of this exercise is to test the rapid-reaction NATO Response Force (NRF). It comprises a troop exercise which will be taking place between 25 October and 7 November, and a command exercise which will be taking place from 14 to 23 November.
