Armed forces from the US, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Saudi Arabia have launched Exercise Native Fury 2024 (NF24) at the Saudi Naval Port.  

The multi-domain training is facilitated by the US Army’s 1st Theater Sustainment Command (1 TSC). 

It commenced on 5 May and marks the eighth iteration of the Native Fury series.  

The primary goal of Exercise Native Fury is to strengthen the planning and execution of complex and realistic operations across multiple domains.  

NF24 is conducted to enhance the interoperability of military forces and demonstrate the collective ability of the partner nations forces to conduct complex operations. 

Some of these operations include long-distance convoys, urban combat training, on-load and off-load operations leveraging commercial maritime shipping, along with other training missions in UAE and Saudi Arabia.

The exercise will utilise strategic locations across Saudi Arabia and the UAE, mainly including the Prince Sultan Air Base, a Saudi port facility on the Red Sea, Al Dhafra Air Base in the UAE, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) Prince Sultan Air Base, and a UAE port facility on the Gulf of Oman. 

More than 600 US Marines, sailors, soldiers, and airmen from various units are participating in NF24, alongside their Saudi and UAE counterparts.  

According to the US Central Command (CENTCOM) media release, NF24 is part of a broader set of CENTCOM-sponsored exercises in the region, including Exercise Indigo Defender, Exercise Eager Lion, and Exercise Iron Union.  

This simultaneous execution of multiple exercises aims to showcase USCENTCOM’s ability to project power and conduct advanced training with partner countries across the region. 

In addition, the exercise highlights the use of the Trans-Arabian Network (TAN), which spans ten nations on the Arabian Peninsula and facilitates the movement of equipment and personnel.
