Two large multinational exercises will kick off this week amid fears about a resurgent Russia, the Pentagon announced Wednesday.

Beginning Thursday, about 160 U.S. troops will participate in Combined Endeavor, an annual exercise that U.S. European Command described as “the largest command, control, communications and computers interoperability event in the world.”

The Defense Department could not immediately provide the unit assignments or other additional details about the participating American forces.

The war game, which involves 1,200 troops from 31 NATO and NATO partner-nations, will take place in Grafenwoehr, Germany, and a forward operating site in Iceland.

EUCOM said the purpose of Combined Endeavor is to improve interoperability among participating militaries and prepare nations to “collaborate, plan and execute complex C4 systems in crisis response and combat operations.”

Northern Coasts, which kicks off Friday, is a Finnish-led maritime exercise in the Baltic Sea region. This year, the U.S., Canada, Germany and Denmark are slated to participate alongside Finland.

The exercise is “a fictive crisis-management operation taking place at sea and along the coast,” according to the Finnish Defense Forces.
