Hundreds of British troops are due to deploy to Estonia to support a Nato reinforcement mission across the Baltic States. At least one squadron of Challenger 2 tanks are scheduled to support the operation which has been listed as the UK;'s Enhanced Forward Presence. The arrival of Belgian and German troops in Lithuania in January 2017 marked the first deployment of NATO’s Enhanced Forward Presence (EFP). While this relatively small conventional force faces multiple challenges in its role to provide a minimum credible deterrent in the region, it also offers a unique opportunity to improve the interoperability of NATO’s land forces. After the arrival of four battalion-sized battle groups to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland by May 2017, NATO will have deployed some 4,000 troops to the region as part of the EFP.
