KEVADTORM 2023 Is Well Underway In Estonia

Exercise KEVADTORM (SPRING STORM) 2023 is now well underway in Estonia with two battlegroups going head-to-head this year, reports Bob Morrison.


The last week has been pretty hectic for us, with the NATO VJTF Exercise NOBLE JUMP 2023 JAPDD taking place in Sardinia on NATO’s southern flank last Friday and the FEINDEF 2023 expo taking place in Madrid earlier this week but today, by before breakfast time in the UK, we were out in the field on NATO’s eastern flank in Estonia to catch some of the action. With three countries, two major exercises and a defence exhibition under my (admittedly quite large) belt over the last seven days, it has not been possible to upload quite as much fresh content to the website as usual, though on the plus side we now have shedloads of new material to percolate through once things ease off a bit.

My key priority (and Carl’s) over the next few days as the KEVADTORM 2023 field training phase over open ground builds to a climax is to try to cover as much of the action as possible between dawn and dusk (we’ll skip those exercise events taking place during the hours of low light and darkness) to allow the bigger picture to be shown. My next priority is feeding the website, and after that I might just try to catch up on a little bit of sleep.
