The largest NATO airborne drills in Europe since the end of the Cold War aim to reassure allies against external aggression threat, American generals said, adding that paratroopers landing in Germany are acting in a “purely defensive” manner.

Parachutists of the US-based 82nd Airborne Division began a NATO exercise in Hohenfels near Nuremberg on Wednesday, where joint multinational training command of 1,100 soldiers from seven NATO countries are holding exercise under the command of the US 7th Army.

The exercise codenamed Swift Response has combined multinational troops from the US, Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, UK and the US to develop interoperability and improve communication and mutual trust between the air and land military, NATO said in a statement.
