    Estonia has kicked off its biggest annual military exercise with around 6,000 national and allied soldiers due to take part in joint training over the next 18 days, Estonia’s state news agency ERRreported.

    The drill, called Spring Storm, will aim to integrate Estonia’s conscripts and reserves with the national force and that of nine other allies, including the U.S., U.K., Canada and Germany.

    The exercise serves as the final exam for Estonian conscripts summoned in the summer and fall of 2015 and, according to Estonia’s Commander-in-Chief of the Estonian Lieutenant General Riho Terras, it is also the best opportunity national troops have to practise working their allied counterparts. The drill will see troops perform test their communication in tactical exercises and cooperation training in the field.
