The drills will train combat support and integration of combat provisions in battalion- and brigade-level defense operations, Delfi reported.

Over 1,300 troops from Latvia, Lithuania, the United States, Canada, Finland, and Germany are taking part in the training.

The drills are aimed to integrate and coordinate fire support during infantry operations with the use of artillery systems, aviation and engineer support. The exercises are designed to help improve interaction between NATO member states.

The exercises will last until April 29.
