The visit symbolised the merging of traditional and evolving approaches in defence strategy. As nations continue to invest in advanced technologies and interdisciplinary collaboration, the bringing together of these elements will undoubtedly shape the future of defence planning.

The cutting-edge wargaming facility helps develop tactical skills for countering hybrid threats which combine conventional military capabilities with non-traditional tactics, such as cyber-attacks, disinformation campaigns, and economic coercion.

Established in 2017, the Hybrid Centre of Excellence (HCoE) is an international network-based organisation that provides expertise and training to 34 EU and NATO countries.

Dr Shiho Rybski of HCoE said: "The wargaming hub represents a great opportunity to further international collaboration and HCoE would be excited to explore future opportunities to support wargaming.

"By training and working together, we can better prepare to counter the broad spectrum of hybrid threats, the wargaming hub can provide the platform in which to collaborate."

It is hoped that the visit will foster future collaborations, enhancing collective readiness to face hybrid threats in an ever-evolving global landscape.
