THE Alvarez de Sotomayor army base in Viator is one of eight participating in Nato’s Trident Juncture exercise.
More than 25,000 troops from 30 countries will join the major exercise in the waters of the Strait of Gibraltar between October 3 and November 6. Spain and Portugal are hosting some of the manoeuvres that will also have air support from Italy. Approximately 20,000 troops will be deployed on Spanish soil, based at Viator and seven other military centres.
The exercise will train and test the NATO Response Force that is designed to be deployed quickly in response to new scenarios, including jihadi terrorism.
