Exercise Noble Jump 17!

Exercise Noble Jump 17

Forces from a number of NATO countries will deploy significant numbers of soldiers, vehicles, and helicopters to Romania from May 30 – June 22, 2017, to test the Very High Readiness Joint Task Force (VJTF) concept.

Exercise Noble Jump 17 is a logistical challenge that will test the ability of all the participants to deliver a fighting force to wherever it is needed. The movements will all be controlled by NATO’s Multi-National Division South East HQ, based in Bucharest. The VJTF is kept on short notice to move and is able to deploy a powerful well-trained force within days. This year, it is being led by the UK’s 20 Armoured Brigade. Overseeing the VJTF’s training at Cincu will be a combination of Joint Force Command Naples, Multi-National division South East and the Allied Rapid Reaction Corps.
