Soldiers in Norway's armoured battalion have been carrying out a series of rigorous training regimes in the mountains north of the Norwegian capital of Oslo as part of Exercise Trident Juncture 2018, NATO's largest military exercise since the end of the Cold War. Many in Norway's second battalion have spent a lot of time far from home since the 9/11 terrorist attack in warm places like Afghanistan. But their real expertise is in Arctic warfare, with their skill set becoming particularly relevant now that NATO is shifting its focus.
