BALTOPS exercises will test the maritime defense capabilities of NATO and partner countries participating in the operation and will include a landing force event composed of 700 Swedish, Finnish and U.S. troops.

Quotes:
"The conditions were perfect and afforded us the opportunity to demonstrate solidarity and professionalism as we move into the southern Baltic ready for the challenges of the training exercise that lay ahead,"
- Rear Adm. Timothy Lowe, deputy commander, BALTOPS

"Standing NATO Maritime Group 2 (SNMG2) personnel took full advantage of the meetings in port, not only to ensure we were prepared for BALTOPs, but also to get to know our Allied counterparts on a more personal level before operating together at sea. This exercise will provide another great training opportunity for our ships, and will give alliance and partner nations the chance to operate at sea as part of a large multinational force. The ability of maritime forces to quickly integrate is the cornerstone of the Alliance's capability."
- Rear Admiral Brad Williamson, commander, SNMG 2
