A combined force of Romanian, Spanish and US Marines landed in Estonia as part of BALTOPS 2019, a US-led exercise intended to strengthen maritime interoperability across the Alliance. Involving 16 Allies and two partner nations, this annual exercise features amphibious operations in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, giving participants a chance to share tactics and practise the complicated art of deploying land forces from the sea.
