Saber Strike 18: Army ADA


Staff Sgt. Rachel Nally, launcher section chief, 5th Battalion, 7th Air Defense Artillery Regiment, conducts an interview during Saber Strike 18. Saber Strike 18 is the eighth iteration of the long-standing U.S. Army Europe-led cooperative training exercise designed to enhance interoperability among allies and regional partners. 

This year’s exercise focuses on improving land and air operational capabilities with an additional key objective to train with NATO’s enhanced Forward Presence battlegroups. 

The eFP battlegroups, located in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland are part of NATO’s overall deterrence and defense posture and are designed to demonstrate the Alliance’s determination and ability to act as one in response to any aggression against its members. NATO’s Multinational Corps North East will command and control multinational portions of the exercise.
