"FIGHTER jets, infantry troops, destroyers and submarines will converge on Wales next month for one of the largest military exercises of all time.
The two-week exercise codenamed Joint Warrior is designed to recreate a scenario in which Britain and other sovereign nations go to war against a state-sponsored terrorist movement using a vast array of lethal modern weapons.
Taking place between October 6 and October 16, it will provide coordinated training for all three UK Armed Services, plus forces from EIGHT allied nations.
Six companies of infantry, 29 surface and four sub-surface maritime units and 60 aircraft flying at a rate of about 80 to 100 sorties a day will be involved in the exercise.
An MoD spokesman said: The two weeks will develop through a period of tension into simulated warfighting/open hostilities.
