Through this exercise, the group demonstrated the inherent agility of maritime assets by constantly maintaining a balanced, proportionate, and credible defence posture.

The exercise served as an excellent opportunity to highlight the warfighting role of NATO’s maritime assets, contributing to the deterrence of potential adversaries, and proving the ability to defend and reassure Allies.



“Together, we showed that NATO is ready and standing as one,” Marx emphasised in conclusion.
