Inside Nato's French contingent in Estonia

Watch: The capabilities of Nato's French contingent in Estonia.

The UK commands Nato's Enhanced Forward Presence Battlegroup (EFP) with more than 900 troops stationed in Estonia.

But, contributing 350 troops to the EFP is France, which also holds the post of Deputy Commander to the Battlegroup.

Forces News reporter Rosie Laydon spent time with the French contingent to find out more about their capability and how they work with their UK counterparts.

The video above also shows 200 French paratroopers jumping from new A400M aircraft – the new aircraft and equipment displaying France's resolute commitment to the security of Nato's eastern flank.
