Trident Juncture is a result of interoperability so these demonstrations or DVD, is also a big challenge, once we are trying to develop interoperability between all the nations participating in this event.’ 00:02:59:16 ‘The main difficulty is co-ordination because, it’s not the weather because you are used to do or to perform this kind of operation in this kind of weather, it’s not the sea state, it’s more the co-ordinations between all the countries involved.’ 00:03:17:16 ‘So we will start with SOF, Special Operations Forces insertion on the beach. We will have some pre-landing forces arriving on the beach, so after that in order to shape the objective area and after that we will have the landing forces landing on the beach with different landing crafts. And the last phase is for logistic purposes so we will have sustainable to put goods and weapons and ammunitions ashore in order to provide good conditions for landing force working on the objective area.’ 00:03:56:16 ‘The world is changing so nowadays the big threat is more asymmetric than conventional so we need to be prepared to do or react against these threats. The security on the beach is very very important in order to put boots on the ground and after that conduct all the operations in order to give more safe and secure environment to this objective area.’
