    Special forces from the United States and Norwegian Armed Forces, alongside Royal Marine Commando groups are partaking in JV17 too.

    KJK can be seen here training for fast-craft interdiction, boarding, search and seizure and swarm assualt missions near Harstad, Norway.

    Taking place in Norwegian Arctic territories, the Northern Lights will be a visible attraction during much of the exercise, shown here in Sennalandet, Finnmark County.

    Both the US Marine Corps and US Army are taking part in JV17. Here US Marines are shown meeting with Norwegian military leaders Minister of Defence, Ine Eriksen Søreide and Lieutenant General Rune Jakobsen, Commander of the Norwegian Joint Headquarters, as well as being familiarized with some of the equipment they'll be working with for the duration of JV17 including CV90 Mk.III IFVs.
