As Steadfast Jazz enters its 4th day, the Air Forces of Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic tie their considerable air power to the land forces, making this truly a combined exercise.
NATO and partner nations conduct Exercise Steadfast Jazz 2013 in Latvia and in Poland from 2 - 9 November 2013. The event marks the culmination of a series of dynamic and demanding exercises designed to train and test troops and commanders from the NATO Response Force (NRF).
The Steadfast series of exercises are part of NATO's efforts to maintain connected and interoperable forces at a high-level of readiness. The goal is to make sure that NRF troops are ready to deal with any situation in any environment.
The event involves about 6,000 personnel from many Allied and partner nations. Around 3,000 headquarters personnel from Joint Force Command Brunssum and other headquarters is involved in a command & control exercise on the Adazi Base near Riga, Latvia and at several other headquarters locations across the Alliance. In addition, multinational troops participate in a live-fire exercise at Poland's Drawsko Pomorskie Training Area. Air, land, maritime, and special forces also participate from several locations.
