"Immediate Response 16" multinational military exercise taking place in Slunj

A two-week multinational military exercise, "Immediate Response 16", which started on Sept 9 and is being held simultaneously in Croatia and Slovenia, was observed by reporters at Croatia's multifaceted Eugen Kvaternik training range in the central Croatian town of Slunj on Tuesday.

"Immediate Response 16" is a multinational, brigade-level command post exercise utilising computer-assisted simulations and field training exercises spanning two countries, Croatia and Slovenia. 

The exercises and simulations are built upon a decisive action-based scenario and are designed to enhance regional stability, strengthen allied and partner nation capacity, and improve interoperability among partner nations. The exercise will last until Sept 23 and will include more than 1,900 soldiers and security forces from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Hungary, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Slovenia, the United Kingdom and the United States. 

"Immediate Response 16" supports the goal of a "Strong Europe", with militaries and security forces are trained and ready to join forces to ensure unified security across allied and partner nations. "Immediate Response" is a pre-planned exercise that has occurred annually for the past six years.
