In the United States called the main objectives of large-scale exercises "Defender of Europe 2020"


The American media published material that understands US preparations for large-scale NATO exercises in 2020. The exercises received the loud name “Defender of Europe 2020”. The United States will take part in them on a division scale.


In the states, it is noted that one of the main goals of these Pentagon maneuvers is to try to determine whether the European grouping of the US forces is provided in sufficient quantities. weapons and ammunition "in case of real confrontation." Considering the territory chosen for the exercises, and these are Poland and the Baltic countries, there are hardly any doubts about who exactly these exercises are directed against and who exactly the American military command is going to confront.

American edition of Defense News:

Defender of Europe 2020 will be the third largest military exercise on the continent since the Cold War. It will test the army’s ability to deliver troops from the United States to operational areas throughout Europe from Germany to Poland, the Baltic countries and other Eastern European countries, including northern Europe.

It is additionally stated that the Pentagon plans to work out the transfer of troops to Georgia.

From a statement by General Gus Pern, Commander for Material Support for the US Army:

We will carefully evaluate two aspects during the exercises: the effectiveness of support, as well as the availability of the necessary equipment for the troops with suitable military equipment, military equipment and ammunition to carry out their mission in this region.

It is added that the command will track "the effectiveness of the transfer of troops and equipment from military bases to the trenches."

                  They are not completely stupid, the military certainly understands everything perfectly. Bonded politicians play their roles, not really thinking about the interests of their country, and they have no choice. The press drives the idea of some kind of threat, no matter what.

                  To turn the tide, you need to convey to the residents a real perspective: what will happen and why it is irreversible.
                  As an example, I’ll cite the events of a quarter century ago: the tribals only hinted at the desire for nature; one very smart military commander The Russian Federation told the press: we will be forced ... and according to the list. I myself think that everything has already been done, but there was no need to voice it The flow of information fell on the inhabitants and entry into the field became desirable for the majority, the will of which was carried out by politicians. An example of a competently played situation

      The usual practice, they conduct teachings against us, we against them. And what's the news then?

      Over the past 25 years, there has not been such a large operation to transfer US troops to Europe. 37 thousand military personnel from 18 countries of the world, as well as 20 thousand military ground forces. Another series of combat training activities, which indicates an even greater number of troops.

      10 European airports are preparing within 96 hours to receive more than 480 tanks and military vehicles, 2 thousand units of automotive equipment. The US division will go on exercises in countries where American troops are already deployed - in Poland, Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia. The German journalist claims that the legend of the exercises is like a rehearsal, and December 24, Shoigu announced a new NATO military strategy:

      It is assumed that 30 daily readiness for use will have 30 mechanized battalions, 30 air squadrons and 30 warships. Shoigu said that on December 1 of this year, NATO reached full completeness of the land component. 76% equipped with the air part of the concept and 93% - the sea.

      It is assumed that the time to make airplanes ready to use nuclear weapons will be reduced from 10 days to 24 hours, in addition, American air defense systems have been deployed in the Baltic states to control the airspace of Russia to a depth of 450 km. According to the Ministry of Defense, the implementation of the concept will be completed in 2022. The US military budget in 2020 will be $ 750 billion. sad

        One clarification: an airspace surveillance system was created in the Baltic States since '96. It is their radars that pump information about what is happening in the airspace directly into the air defense system of Western Europe.
        I don’t need to prompt how, who and how pushed them, like the whole of eastern Europe, to join the Regional Airspace Initiative RAI program and create an integrated surveillance system.
        The 'allies' of the tribalt only need to drag the weapon systems to turn watching in the air defense.

      The news is:
      - in sufficient quantities, the European grouping of the US troops is provided with weapons and ammunition
      Logistics checked. The largest transfer of US troops to Europe after the collapse of the USSR.
      Maximum number of NATO member states.
      Land forces, the navy, and aviation are also participating.
      THE MAIN GOAL is to strengthen Russophobia in Europe After all, something must be done after Erdogan’s actions, Macron’s statement.

        For what ?
        So, God forbid, they do not run away in their national angles and throw themselves off the American occupation muzzle and work for the US military-industrial complex. Purchasing their weapons and America's prosperity to their own detriment
        2. Drive the Russian Federation into the arms race and thereby reduce the contribution of capital to the country's economy.
        3. In every possible way to impede political and especially economic relations of the EU countries and the Russian Federation (here and their fuss over SP-2)

            It is truth too. Abrams are more difficult to transfer than the T-72.
            Although we have Merkava on wagons regularly thrown from north to south
            for exercises and vice versa along the central highway. And they drive so smartly, about 60 km / h.

    command will track "the effectiveness of the transfer of troops and equipment from military bases to the trenches».
    And dug trenches? Otherwise, it may turn out a confusion - the troops were deployed, and in Poland and the Baltic, the locals were not called up to the "labor front" and did not prepare the place for the concentration of the "defenders". Well, seriously, this is yet another attempt to “contain” Russia in the NATO way - we (the Russians) will only frighten you with our presence and frustrate your insidious plans for the invasion.

    The article is for informational purposes only.

    We will carefully evaluate two aspects during the exercises: the effectiveness of support, as well as the availability of the necessary equipment for the troops with suitable military equipment, military equipment and ammunition to carry out their mission in this region.

    Do what any adequate person will do - check your capabilities!
    If all the time lie in one place, then there will be bedsores, so conducting exercises to assess their capabilities is a necessity. Otherwise, degradation.

    These teachings should not be taken so closely at one’s expense. Yes, we will be the aggressor, or China, or Takistan.
    After all, Americans are unlikely to think about protecting Europe from Belarus.)

    At the same time, this is the training of our Armed Forces, in addition to reconnaissance and tracking their exercises, our General Staff will think it will "accompany" all the transfer of forces and assets from the US to Europe, and even more so to Georgia.

    I’m wondering why mattresses, conducting exercises outside their territory, stupidly confront the fact, and even then not always? And while we are conducting exercises on our land, we constantly make excuses and try to explain something to someone? And if the exercises on the western borders - without comment at all ...

      The people of the United States will not really like such an undertaking; big troubles can turn out.

    The US is not a defender, but an occupier of Europe

    Russia also conducted similar verification exercises a couple of years ago.
    logistics. Transferred a whole tank army from the depths of Russia
    to the borders of Belarus and the Baltic states.
    So, such exercises are carried out regularly by both parties.

    Slowly and confidently, they are pulling together the military contingent, manning for an attack from several sides at once and at the same time, don’t expect anything well, but soon a big mess will blow, well, I smell it, something that didn’t happen in January 13 will come out soon, watch, prepare, analyze soldier

    It is assumed that 30 daily readiness for use will have 30 mechanized battalions, 30 air squadrons and 30 warships. Shoigu said that on December 1 of this year, NATO reached full completeness of the land component. 76% equipped with the air part of the concept and 93% - the sea.

    It is assumed that the time to make airplanes ready to use nuclear weapons will be reduced from 10 days to 24 hours, in addition, American air defense systems have been deployed in the Baltic states to control the airspace of Russia to a depth of 450 km. According to the Ministry of Defense, the implementation of the concept will be completed in 2022. The US military budget in 2020 will be $ 750 billion.

    There is one caveat - this is completely insufficient for a quick and effective strike on Russia. Especially in the part - what are the American air defense / missile defense systems worth and how much will they survive in case of what? That is, you can poke a torch in the face of a sleeping bear - and then what?
    This is the first. Second: all these troop transfers and other maneuvers there cost more and more gigantic money, and will also inevitably be accompanied by an increase in the number of catastrophes / accidents / incidents. These are direct expenses of both finance (whose, by the way?) And moral capital.
    I understand the States: they have nowhere to go, and the sweetest one to rob this time is the Allies, European, Japanese, South Korean, Saudi - any will come down, America isn’t sentimental now, and other food (Russia and China) isn’t teeth.
    But Europeans (we will not classify Poles-Baltic) - I do not understand? They like such a goal, to save American well-being for another 15-20 years at the cost of their own?
