The arrival of U.S. troops and equipment from 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, out of Fort Carson, Colorado, marks the beginning of the continuous presence of an ABCT (Armoured Brigade Combat Team) and back-to-back rotations of U.S. troops and equipment in Europe.

The U.S. brigade equipment, about 2,800 vehicles and containers, is scheduled to move from Bremerhaven by rail, commercial line haul and military convoy to training areas at Drawsko Pomorskie and Zagan, Poland, where the brigade will consolidate before relocating units across countries from Estonia to Bulgaria beginning in February.

Polish and U.S. troops will participate in large military exercises in Poland at the end of January involved around 4,000 American soldiers with combat vehicles and tanks.

In addition to U.S. troops going to Poland, NATO members Germany, Canada and Britain are also sending battalions of up to 1,000 troops each to the former Soviet republics of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

The equipment deployed by United States armed forces in Europe will include 87 Abrams M1A1 tanks, 20 Paladin artillery vehicles and 136 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles. These equipment will be used by the U.S. Army's 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, arriving this month from Fort Carson, Colorado.

The U.S. Army is also sending its 10th Combat Aviation Brigade with about 50 Black Hawk and 10CH-47 Chinook helicopters and 1,800 personnel, as well as a separate aviation battalion with 400 troops and 24 Apache helicopters.
