Foretaste of war in the Baltic

The leaders of a group of 15 Hampton Roads-based Navy ships are set to command even larger formations in line with the Navy’s latest thinking on how sailors and Marines should work together — and did so in an annual NATO exercise in the Baltic Sea.

That exercise involving Expeditionary Strike Group 2, known as ESG-2, was meant to test NATO’s ability to operate in the close quarters of those waters. The strike group’s commanding officer, Rear Adm. Robert Katz, directed 40 ships, 60 aircraft and 4,000 personnel from 18 nations.
