Submarines from France, Germany, Norway, United Kingdom and the United States under NATO Submarine Command joined surface ships from Canada, Norway, United Kingdom and the United States. As the host nation, Iceland is providing logistical support in Reykjavik.
To enhance the simulated multi-threat environment, maritime patrol aircrafts from France, Norway, United Kingdom and the United States supported the exercise.
In total, 5 surface ships, 5 submarines, 5 maritime patrol aircrafts were participating.
The aim of Dynamic Mongoose is to provide all participants with complex and challenging warfare training to enhance their interoperability and proficiency in Anti-Submarine and Anti-Surface warfare skills, with due regard to safety.
Each surface ship will have the opportunity to conduct a variety of submarine warfare operations.
The submarines will take turns hunting and being hunted, closely coordinating their efforts with the air and surface participants.
Due to COVID-19 threat, measures taken by both Icelandic authorities and the force contributing nations will be strictly followed by all sides during the port visits and training.
