Ground forces

NATO Army Personnel—unspecialized*
More than half of all NATO member countries deployed ground forces to Lagos. Initial NATO forces consisted predominately of United States Army, Norwegian Forsvaret, Spanish Ejército and Deutsches Heer VJTF-PARA Rapid Response Forces deployed via airship from AFC Madrid. Most of the initial force was composed of the 187th Battalion, activated as a response to UCO combat, which includes infantry (both rifle and weapons companies), combined arms teams, and light urban-specialty (mostly semi-autonomous) armor, most notably the AWAND swarm drone platform. Also of note was the late-stage deployment of Task Force DREAMLAND.

NATO Army Personnel—specialized*
MOCUT/MOUT-trained special units forces were also deployed as specified under the Specialization Like Use Treaty Amendment of 2019. These units deployed with MOC 641 UAVs, known as ‘Pigeon’.

Cyber Warfare & Operations Specialist (CY-OP)—780th Military Intelligence Brigade (US Army)
Military Operations Specialization 29C - COS. Cyber Warfare & Operations Specialists conduct offensive and defensive operations to protect data, networks, and cause disruption to enemy network systems. 29C - COS (or informally, “CY-OP”) requires 10 weeks of Basic Combat Training and two phases of Advanced Individual Training (AIT). 29C - COS also contains two optional modules of AIT. Phase one includes 25 weeks of training in Corry Station, Florida. Phase two and the two optional modules each last 20 weeks, and take place in Fort Gordon, Georgia.

Maritime forces

Note: No NATO maritime forces were listed in the Fielding Roster, though elsewhere we have found references to an initial deployment of a spearhead group that consisted of a Spanish Ciudad-class carrier, an unknown number of United States Zumwalt-class destroyers, and an unknown number of German T3001 destroyers.
