The joint military exercise began at the Central Firing Range near the town of Tapa, Estonia. The General Staff of Estonia’s Defense Forces reported that on Monday.

The drills involve combat aviation of the U.S. National Guard from Maryland; A-10 Thunderbolts, Huey UH-64s and CH-47s, as well as 270 troops participate in the exercise. They reached the Emari air field on Friday, the Estonian army says.

NATO international battalion and members of Kaitseliit, the local militia, will also join the drill.

It’s been not the first NATO drill in Estonia this summer; earlier, in June, this country hosted Saber Strike 2017, which involved about 1,500 people from France, Estonia, the United Kingdom, Finland and the U.S.
