  • Description

    On Friday (12 September) twenty-five thousand troops from seven countries started to arrive at Yesilkoy Airbase in Istanbul, Turkey, to take part in nearly three weeks of NATO exercises.

    Called "Deep Express 75" the exercise will involve both logistics planning and conducting landing manoeuvres in Turkish Thrace.

    It's the first time a NATO exercise has been co-ordinated internationally and its main aim is to test the ability of Allied Command Europe to reinforce wherever the need is greatest.

    It will also exercise NATO communications over a wide field and at all levels and demonstrate in a very practical way the limitations on the flexible use of NATO forces imposed through lack of standardisation, doctrine, organisation,k equipment and logistics.

    The exercise will go on until the twenty ninth of September.
