British troops exercise in Estonia as part of the NATOs eFP (Enhanced Forward Presence)

Pictured is a French Leclerc mk2 Main Battle Tank (MBT) in Silhouette, and shrouded in smoke after firing during the live fire element of a joint UK/French exercise as part of the eFP deployment.
The aim of the exercise was to give troops from both France and the UK a chance to watch each others main battle tanks in action, the Leclerc mk2 from France and the Challenger 2 from the UK.
After the tank ranges had finished, both armies set up a range to test out each others individual weapon system, an activity enjoy by all due to its rarity.
The enhanced Forward Presence Battlegroup in Estonia deployed on an Estonian Defence League organised exercise, which saw members of the 5 RIFLES BG tested in both an armoured and light role phase.
UK Armed Forces are taking a leading role in NATOs Enhanced Forward Presence (eFP), with the British Army leading a multinational Battlegroup in Estonia from early 2017.
The eFP in the Baltic States will see the deployment of robust, multinational, combat-ready forces to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland, on a persistent, rotational basis. This movement forms part of a wider package of initiatives designed to enhance Euro-Atlantic security, reassure our Allies and deter our adversaries.
This deployment is just one aspect of a wide range of UK support to NATO. From January 2017, the UK assumed responsibility for NATOs Very High Readiness Joint Task Force (VJTF) contributing about 3, 000 personnel, leading a structured group of 14 partner nations

EDITORS COMMENTS
The print captures a powerful moment during a joint UK/French exercise as part of NATO's Enhanced Forward Presence (eFP) deployment in Estonia. In the silhouette, a French Leclerc mk2 Main Battle Tank (MBT) is shrouded in smoke after firing during the live fire element of the exercise. The aim of this exercise was to allow troops from both France and the UK to witness each other's main battle tanks in action – the Leclerc mk2 from France and the Challenger 2 from the UK. After completing tank ranges, both armies set up a range to test out each other's individual weapon systems, an activity enjoyed by all due to its rarity. This joint effort demonstrates not only cooperation between nations but also strengthens their capabilities and readiness. The British Army has taken on a leading role in NATO's eFP initiative since early 2017, deploying robust multinational combat-ready forces on a rotational basis across Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland. This deployment forms part of broader efforts aimed at enhancing Euro-Atlantic security while reassuring allies and deterring adversaries. In addition to this deployment, the UK provides extensive support to NATO through various initiatives. Since January 2017, they have assumed responsibility for NATOs Very High Readiness Joint Task Force (VJTF), contributing approximately 3, 000 personnel and leading a structured group consisting of 14 partner nations. These collective efforts highlight Britain's commitment towards maintaining peace and stability within Europe alongside its NATO allies.
