BALTOPS 2015 Covers Amphibious Drills

Marines from four nations came together during BALTOPS from June 7-17. U.S. Marines and partner nations integrated to practice expeditionary, ship-to-shore assaults to enhance their capability to work together as a combined amphibious force.

Amphibious drills give each nation’s Marines the opportunity to improve their expeditionary warfare skills together as a NATO force.

BALTOPS is NATO’s multinational maritime exercise in its 43rd iteration. Along with the multinational amphibious force are 13 additional Allies and partners that come together in the Baltics to improve their capabilities to collectively respond to a range of real-world situations.

The relationships and improved capabilities built during the exercise allow the force to operate throughout the region, enhancing and refining a responsive force to defend the Baltics if needed.
