Largest US exercises in Europe launched in Poland Defender 2020

The largest US exercises DEFENDER 2020 in recent years have started on the territory of Poland, at which the US military will work out the transfer of troops to Europe. This was announced by the Minister of National Security of Poland Mariusz Blaszczak.


We started the largest DEFENDER 2020 exercises in many years. About 37 thousand soldiers will take part in them, including 20 thousand from the USA.

he said, adding that the first US military had already crossed the Polish border and arrived in the republic.

According to published data from the Government Security Center of Poland, Defender 2020 exercises are not NATO exercises, but are US-level exercises of a divisional level.

Their main goal will be to test the ability of the American army to transfer ground forces from bases in the depths of the USA to ports on the east coast, and then to seaports in Europe

- the document says.

As previously reported, the exercises will be conducted under the command of the US military and will be aimed at developing the ability of the American army to quickly transfer from the US to Europe and deploy large forces on its territory, including equipment. As stated in the NATO command, during the exercises, the United States will transfer to Europe a record number of personnel and equipment over the past 25 years. The exercises will be held on the territory of European countries and Georgia, the main part will be held in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. The main deployment is in Poland and the Baltic states.

About 20 thousand troops are expected to be thrown across the Atlantic to Europe, along with equipment. Most of the exercises will be held in April-May, after which part of the US military contingent will return to the United States by July, and some will remain in Europe, as a factor in deterring "Russian" aggression.

    It’s time for the coronavirus to be pulled across Europe and then transferred to the states. To whom, if not the military, do this with maximum efficiency. And then carnivals collapse, the Olympics are in question ...

    As soon as Russia begins military exercises, Western politicians and diplomats scream that we are preparing to attack the EU countries. Now NATO is conducting exercises in Poland, maybe our diplomat can begin to say that they are going to attack Russia, in particular the Kaliningrad region and give a note of protest about the exercises.

      The most interesting thing is that 13 thousand units of military equipment will be involved in these exercises, 37 thousand troops will not be enough even for the crews, the number of troops is clearly underestimating.

        It depends on what equipment (bike, ATV or BMP). One mechvod on the "cart" is enough, it still remains. laughing

          The Poles, however, are not Ukrainian troops — there, in fact, one Makhnovist, a “mechvoda”, is enough for a cart. And in “Abrams”, if Wikipedia does not lie, there are four of them. Yes, in the "Bradley" three.
          It’s just that when I served, America didn’t deliver armored vehicles to either bearded or beardless barmel, so I didn’t see either Abrams or Bradley alive.

          And if something heavier, there is an opinion that not all bridges in Poland are free to withstand it ....
          Breaking Defense notes that the United States spent most of the century fighting in the deserts, and not at all ready for a war in Europe ... "if there is only one bridge that you use to achieve your goal, it becomes a natural hub where the enemy can break your strength in parts when you cross it "https://rg.ru/2020/02/10/nato-provedet-v-evrope-samye-krupnye-voennye-ucheniia-so-vremen-holodnoj-vojny.html

        and some will remain in Europe as a deterrent to the "Russian" aggression.

        So they, under the “brand” of exercises, also planned to increase their contingent in Poland and the Baltic states? Well, everything, the GDP of these countries since July will increase sharply from the amount of beer and pizza sold. I think and ladies with low social. take part in its filling ...

        They themselves do not know how to count. They hope that we also do not know how.
        As they know geography, we have already seen.
        Missile defense in Poland is not from Russia at all, but from Iran

        Now here is the story with math.

        They, Americans, know how to count like my illiterate grandmother, for whom my grandfather even received and signed a pension.
        You’ll ask her: “I had 1 ruble 25 kopecks, my friend and I bought a bottle of lemonade for 35 kopecks and two potato cakes for 9 kopecks, then they returned the bottle to the saleswoman, she returned us 20 kopecks. How much do I have?” The answer is without thinking, right to the penny.
        Ask how much 125-18-35 + 20 will be - in a stupor ...

        Nothing, thanks to the Unified State Examination, and we are having a generation that believes that 37 thousand soldiers are crews of 13 thousand units of armored vehicles, plus technical personnel and infantry. What Poland borders on Iran. And, finally, my favorite is that you can bring the American fleet to the “coast of Belarus” and breathe “healing mountain air” in Rostov-on-Don (with a tear I remember clever J. Psaki crying ).

        To a neighbor (75 years old), a retired mathematics teacher, two ninth-grader boys go to school (she is friends with their grandmothers). He says that neither one nor the other knows how to use the protractor, they don’t know the multiplication table by heart, one of them counts 15 + 8 on his fingers. Not to mention the fact that she again explains to each class what the “discriminant” is. Both study at the Lyceum, in algebraic geometry at both the "four", go then to engage in what the grandmothers want the "five".

        Cry? Or shoot Fursenko with his exam?

        I understand that this is normal now. Itself was in the ranks of the armed forces during the exercises "West 2017". Officially, 1 BTGr took part from HF, 80% of the drugs of the brigade did not officially leave for the training ground.

    Fools! Who and where will bury you in case of such a transfer? Have you decided to scare the Russian Bear with a Polish bald hedgehog? laughing
    Yes, no one in Russia is afraid of you, nor your maneuvers, nor your ability ... We remember, we know, we saw ...

      To respond with Iskander maneuvers in the Kaliningrad Region and practicing the transfer of our ICBMs to the Washington and New York area (training practice! Do not think what ...).

      you need to guess when American transports enter the North Sea, start there the Northern Fleet and Northern Fleet missile exercises in international waters, thereby temporarily blocking access to the Danish Straits, at least for a day
      there will be good exercises on the transfer of troops with a delay of a day - consider the war lost

    What a gorgeous goal - convoys in the Atlantic ... Boys Dönitz at 42 gloriously frolic there. And now? All kinds of long-range winged, homing ...
    And for the war with Russia, it’s not necessary to transfer 20 thousand ... And not 200. No, it’s not serious. Although it looks menacing.

      Terrible for the Baltic states. The Estonian army, after all. Even for the Poles it’s not serious. It's funny for us. In the case of a real war - all 20 thousand in the North Sea will go to feed herring before reaching the coast.

    It seems that we need to conduct something adequate and creative in response to the mandatory participation of a nuclear triad and new weapons against the backdrop of our philosophical and indifferent calm, and in the light of recent events in Syria, Turkey has become very stormy and not a fact, but to all these anti-Russian aggravations, ukronatsi, may well receive the FAS command from their American owners, to intensify in the Donbass.

    There is widespread escalation of military hysteria. Before the post-Putin elections, it will only intensify and will reach its peak by election day. In the meantime, lobbyists and financiers from military industrial production companies joyfully rub their hands.

    I remember the Germans in Gleivitz did without rehearsals. But whatever one may say, the occupation by Poland by the Junkers begins and is welcomed.
    (The most important thing is that then from the States repatriation for the occupation is not required, otherwise it will become with them!)

    "From March 1 to March 14, the peacekeeping company of the 103rd Vitebsk Separate Airborne Brigade will conduct a joint training with the British Marines.
    On February 29, British troops arrived in Belarus from the front-line equipment escort group. "
