This deployment is part of NATO's reinforcement operation to the allied countries that have borders with Russia, given the situation created by the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the threats launched by the Putin regime against allied countries such as Poland. The Spanish self-propelled howitzers are M-109 belonging to the 11th Field Artillery Regiment (RACA 11), based in Burgos and part of the Field Artillery Command.

This Tuesday, the eFP Battle Group Latvia has published a series of photos of the Summer Shield exercise carried out by the Spanish artillerymen at Camp Ādaži, the maneuvering field attached to the base where the Spanish contingent is deployed in that Baltic republic. The maneuvers took place last week.
