A high standard for the EUBGs
With seven contributing nations, numerous participants with high individual and combined skills and many exclusive resources like the ISTAR-unit, CBRN-unit, fighter jets, transport and MEDEVAC helicopters and excellent ground forces, the Nordic Battlegroup has for six month been ready to make a contribution to the EU as a part of the EU's crisis management capability.
- “Nordic Battlegroup has set a high standard for the European Union Battlegroups. The expectations on Nordic Battlegroup have been high - from our first preparations and throughout our standby”, says NBG Force Commander Torbjörn Larsson.
Nordic Battlegroup has made the cooperation between the seven contribution nations stronger on all levels – from the soldier on the ground to leaders in our capitals. The Nordic Battlegroup has also been a clear signal of solidarity and the readiness to be a strong contributor to the EU crisis management capability.
“The northern parts of Europe is getting more and more important and by that also our cooperation. The ambitious effort you have done, all seven nations together, have really made the cooperation between countries stronger – a job well done! says Sverker Göranson.
