Headline : IN PICTURES: Operation Tractable
Caption : Over 100 personnel from the United Kingdom's elite Parachute Regiment and Estonian defence forces took part in a large-scale exercise in Estonia on Friday (1Nov19).

The jump was the largest military parachute exercise ever to take place in the country, and was part of the Europe-wide Operation Tractable with the drop zone (DZ) being Nurmsi Airfield near Paide in central Estonia.

Operation Tractable brings around 800 personnel from the U.K. to Estonia, coinciding with the handover of the core unit of the British-led NATO Battlegroup to the Queen's Royal Hussars, an armoured regiment, but separate from it.
