Approximately 5,630 participants from 15 nations took part in exercise Allied Spirit X at the 7th Army Training Command's Hohenfels Training Area in southeastern Germany, Mar. 30–Apr. 17, 2019.
Nearly 1,265 participants will come from the United States, and approximately 4,365 participants are scheduled to participate from allied and partner nations of Denmark, Finland, Germany, Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Moldova, Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.
Germany’s 21st Armored Brigade will command the multinational brigade headquarters. The Allied Spirit series rotates countries as the brigade headquarters leading the exercise, so all participating nations gain experience of working together in and for a multinational effort.
Allied Spirit X is unique in its ability to provide hands-on experience and testing of secure communications between NATO allies and partners.
