Main focus has been aimed at the first exercise feature, which is Host Nation Support (HNS), i.e. the ability to receive and support foreign units that will assist Sweden in case of a critical situation. The Swedish Armed Forces and the Road Safety and Transport Agency conducted transports across water, together with the US Marine Corps, in the town of Sveg on Tuesday.
“We have conducted various exercise features linked to HNS. We have also facilitated the operational transports and subsequent logistics support, protection and surveillance”, says Kenneth Johansson, Exercise Director of the exercise feature conducted in Sveg.
The exercise scenario is that the southern parts of Sweden are subjected to an armed attack, following sabotage and various influence operations.
