RCN News - - Front Page -

More than 900 Cana­dian sailors, air­men and air­women of the Cana­dian Armed Forces par­tic­i­pated in Ex­er­cise Joint War­rior, a joint multi­na­tional NATO ex­er­cise which took place in the United King­dom from April 15 to 25. Ex­er­cise Joint War­rior is the largest mil­i­tary tac­ti­cal ex­er­cise in Europe, and is de­signed to pre­pare NATO mil­i­tary forces to work to­gether in a va­ri­ety of mis­sions from pro­vid­ing hu­man­i­tar­ian aid to full-com­bat op­er­a­tions.

"Ex­er­cise Joint War­rior sets the stage for a broad range of evolv­ing cri­sis and con­flict sce­nar­ios that could be real­is­ti­cally ex­pe­ri­enced by our sailors and air­crew in fu­ture op­er­a­tions," said Vice-Ad­mi­ral Paul Mad­di­son, Com­man­der Royal Cana­dian Navy. "Th­ese joint ex­er­cises al­low par­tic­i­pat­ing NATO forces to be­come fa­mil­iar with each other's per­son­nel and plat­forms, which will pay fu­ture div­i­dends as we con­tinue to de­velop mu­tual trust and con­fi­dence in each other's op­er­a­tional ca­pa­bil­i­ties."
