Large-scale exercise in Northern Norway

In the period November 19-28 the Norwegian Navy, Army and Air Force are conducting a joint exercise in Northern Norway.

As the Norwegian Armed Forces are changing the training model to focus more on cooperation between different branches, “Flotex Silver Rein II” is a foretaste of how military exercises will be organized in the years to come. In 2013 there will be four so-called joint operational exercises, the Armed Forces’ web site reads.

The exercise “Flotex Silver Rein II” used to be three separate exercises: “Flotex” – a navy exercise, “Falcon Silver” – an air force exercise and “Rein” – an exercise for ground forces.

The aim of the exercise is to practice procedures, interaction and a common understanding of the situation between the different land, naval and air units. Systems for network based defense (NBF) will be tested and all branches will be conducting live firing.

The frigate “KNM Fridtjof Nansen” will be training for specific tasks as preparations to an upcoming mission to the Gulf of Aden. 

All Norwegian strategic capacities as F-16 fighter jets, frigates and submarines will take part in the exercise, as well as several allied aircraft and surface vessels.
