According to an announcement by the HNDGS, the exercise took place at Aviano, Ghedi, Trapani, and Gioia Del Colle Air Bases in Italy. Greece participated with 3 F-16 aircraft and the corresponding Hellenic Air Force support personnel as well as 1 Liaison Officer (LNO) in the staff conducting the exercise at the Aviano Base. Furthermore, personnel and aircraft from 13 countries of the Alliance also participated.

The participation of the Hellenic Armed Forces in “STEADFAST NOON 2023” has contributed to the promotion of the level of operational readiness and combat capability as well as to the upgrading of the multilayered military synergy of the Hellenic Armed Forces in an allied context.
