NATO’s Standing Naval Forces have arrived in Scotland for the largest-ever Joint Warrior Drill, which will include 50 ships, 70 aircraft and 13,000 personnel from 14 countries.

The biannual military drills will be conducted between the 11 and 24 April, according to a statement released by the alliance.

“This exercise is a unique opportunity for us to work with our Allied shipmates. For most US Sailors, our training and qualifications are done with other US Navy ships; multinational exercises like this help our Sailors learn how to cooperate and excel with other navies in a challenging and multidimensional environment,” said Lieutenant Commander Matthew Hamm, USS Vicksburg’s operations officer.
