Massive British, NATO War Games Prepare Queen Elizabeth Carrier Strike Group To Confront Russia and China

This year’s iteration of Britain’s biannual Joint Warrior exercise in the Irish Sea is subsumed under another exercise, Strike Warrior 21, being used to prepare the HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier, the flagship of the Royal Navy, and its carrier strike group for deployment to the Mediterranean Sea, the Indian Ocean and the Asia-Pacific region.

Exercise Joint Warrior, held in the spring and autumn every year, is described by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization as the largest military exercise in Europe and is organized jointly by the British army, navy and air force. It occurs off the northern and western coasts of Scotland in the Irish Sea. It is one of 95 NATO exercises scheduled for 2021 (113 were scheduled for last year), with 220 other national and multinational exercises conducted in conjunction with them.

This year’s Strike Warrior/Joint Warrior I, which was launched on May 8 and will continue to May 20, includes 31 warships, three submarines, 150 aircraft and over 13,000 military personnel from ten nations: NATO members Britain, the U.S., Denmark, France, Germany, Latvia, the Netherlands, Norway and Poland and NATO Enhanced Opportunities Partner Australia.

According to a British official quoted in the press, “Strike Warrior is linked directly to the NATO military training exercise programme and brings together all three UK armed forces – the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force – along with the other participating countries.”
