British Army versus Nato war games on Russia’s doorstep
Following the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, Latvia has bolstered its defences on its eastern flank, and carries out regular drills to test its defensive capabilities.
British soldiers, who were involved in this type of exercise for the first time, deployed from their base in Poland to the Adazi training grounds, which are 11.2km long and 6.4km wide.
The British troops, who played the red force in Titan Shield, needed to prove they could fight when they were outnumbered, while the blue forces – representing Nato – had to defend their territory, Latvia having joined the alliance in 2004.
