Press Release- Dynamic Front 21 to Integrate Multinational Fires Capabilities

May 11, 2021


U.S. Army Europe and Africa will conduct Dynamic Front 21 with approximately 1,800 participants from 15 nations, May 3-21, 2021. The live-fire portion of the exercise will take place May 17-21, 2021 in Grafenwoehr Training Area, Germany, and Torun, Poland - involving approximately 70 artillery systems from participating countries.

Dynamic Front 21 is a 7th Army Training Command-led, U.S. Army Europe and Africa-directed exercise designed to increase readiness, lethality and interoperability by exercising allied and partner nations’ ability to integrate joint fires in a multinational environment at both the operational and tactical levels.

“Dynamic Front 21 is a venue to bring together allies and partners to build common understanding,” said U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Christopher Norrie, commanding general of 7ATC. “This exercise gets these units into an austere environment and forces them to shoot and displace multiple times across our training areas in Germany and Poland. Our artillery units need to be able to process fire missions from different nations and be survivable on the battlefield. This is all about credible deterrence.”

Approximately 800 U.S. Soldiers and approximately 1,000 participants are scheduled to participate from our allied and partner nations.

Dynamic Front 21 will be conducted while maximizing the use of COVID-9 mitigation techniques, keeping the health of our forces, allies and partners, and surrounding communities our top priority.

Dynamic Front 21 is the second of the Fires Shock series of multinational long-range precision fires and joint forcible entry exercises across two continents simultaneously, designed to improve USAREUR-AF’s ability to rapidly deploy in support of allied and partner nations.
