BALTOPS is an annually recurring multinational exercise designed to enhance flexibility and interoperability, as well as demonstrate resolve of allied and partner forces to defend the Baltic region.

BALTOPS exercises will test the maritime defense capabilities of NATO and partner countries participating in the operation and will include a landing force event composed of 700 Swedish, Finnish and U.S. troops.

Approximately 5,600 air, ground and maritime forces from participating nations will conduct air defense, maritime interdiction, anti-subsurface warfare, and amphibious operations in a joint environment.
