NATO sends Abrams tanks to Poland

NATO continues the massive transfer of military equipment to its eastern flank. The leadership of the Alliance is steadily building up its grouping in Poland. Recently, about 700 units of military equipment have been delivered to this country, including American Tanks Abrams.


The equipment was delivered by sea to the port of Gdynia, where, after unloading, it was sent by rail to the eastern regions of Poland, in particular to the Krakow region.

The weapons are intended for the US military personnel stationed in Poland. The US military has been in Poland since mid-2017, and since 2018, the transfer of heavy military equipment to the area of ​​​​their deployment has continued. To date, more than 20 sea transports with weapons have been sent.

American military equipment is supplied to the eastern borders of NATO as part of the Atlantic Resolve program, which began in 2014 and is designed to strengthen the US military presence in European countries in response to the armed conflict in Donbass.

In addition to the Abrams tanks, Poland is supplied with M113 armored personnel carriers, M2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles and other equipment, which is delivered to military bases located in different parts of the country.

American troops are conducting joint exercises with Polish military personnel within the framework of NATO standards.

    All the same, the "hyena of Europe" missed the next section. Equipment is being transferred, mobilization under the guise of exercises is being prepared .... He does not live in this world. It’s interesting that the West is preparing its operations, everything is planning to crush all the enemies in turn, but what will happen if now Taiwan begins to return to its native harbor and the reunification of North and South Korea begins at the same time? a reciprocal move, so to speak ... Obviously, there are not enough resources and forces for everything together ....

          The Poles have long asked to send American units with these tanks to them. They even agreed to bear all the costs of their transportation and maintenance. So the Americans take the opportunity to live on Sharka at the expense of stupid Poles.

Unfortunately, these unique people and the Wehrmacht grouping, like in 41, with modern means of surveillance, can be overlooked. So I wouldn't be fooled hi

        Well, it’s only you who think that it was a surprise for the General Staff, because if it were so, then the entire Russian military group would not have withdrawn from Izyum and Balakleya, but would have been encircled and defeated.
        They saw and knew everything, and therefore, a few days before the departure, they transferred with everything they could the equipment and the military who covered the retreating group.
        And I had to withdraw because of the small number of the Russian military group in Ukraine and the complete absence of reserves (because only conscripts who were forbidden to use in Ukraine and did it right) remained in reserve, which could be transferred to prevent an attempt to break through and attack the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

      Good evening Andrey. Again, the minusers came running from the outside. But in fact: the frontal projection does not withstand new ATGMs, it holds a maximum of 1 mm feathered at a distance of 550 km, with a cumulative up to 800 mm, and it holds no more than 50% of the frontal projection with depleted uranium armor, the rest does not hold our old RPG , and the side and rear projections can’t even withstand the old RPG shots of the 60s, the 30-mm cannon of the ancient BMP-1 pierces, and even the DShK breaks the APU (auxiliary power unit) and the fuel tank to it - the additional power system rises (drives, etc. .) and burning fuel pours directly onto the engine and the tank burns to the ground. It’s not even worth mentioning the damage to the chassis, but the mass is right for our “roads” and bridges .... the car is super impassable in such regions. Like a bunker - it will do, but an expensive bunker ... very much ... and you won’t end up with shame. The Yankees drive such equipment to Poland only realizing that they definitely won’t use it, they tried to carry such tanks around Poland - the bridges can’t withstand, under the bridges it’s too low, the road surface and slabs don’t hold, on the primer - only in heat and dryness. The "Cornet" will burn nafig into the lobeshnik, and the new Cornets hit up to 10 km (Abrams effectively shoots up to 2,5-3 km), you can’t even talk about URSs at all. So the pig is fat and a boar with a loud fart before dying.

        The fact that the Polish Armed Forces are fully exploiting the MBT Leoprad 2A4, 2A5, 2PL does not bother you !? There will be leopards even higher than the Abrams. And the Poles are just so stupid, knowing that not a single bridge will withstand, and YOU WILL not pass anywhere and will not be able to do anything, they still ordered Abrams from the Amers for their armament and the Black Panthers !? good

      Ours recently, about a year and a half ago, tested a new tank ammunition on an Abrams tank (it seems to have been dragged from Iraq). This ammunition at a distance of 6,2 km pierced the turret of this tank in the forehead for a flight. You recently read that they, the Americans, urgently over the past year began to strengthen the armor of the tower with the installation of active additional protection. So this is because of our ammunition.
      The last Cornet pierces 1300 mm of armor. And we have it en masse in service.
      Well, the cherry on the cake - all the time they made it appear that our tanks were tearing off the towers, while the Abrams did not. So, if the tower has armor-piercing high-explosive and cumulative ammunition, then the tower is torn off in the same way .. Before the hostilities, in order to avoid this, the Americans left or completed the ammunition rack where the core is in the form of an arrow (from depleted uranium). And they took few other shells and tried to shoot them first. This is the confession of an American tanker.

    This is quite expected. Poland is being turned into the "tough nut" next to Ukraine, which the RF Armed Forces will have to crack open. The latter, however, will become possible only after the successful completion of the NMD, which (judging by the ten-month nature of the conduct of hostilities) does not yet cause reasonable certainty.

        With such air defense and tactical aviation as we have, in the event of a hypothetical intervention of the Polish army on the side of Ukraine, our entire grouping, including the remnants of the Black Sea Fleet, would have been seated in just a week.
        Air strikes (more than fifty new F-16s there) and tactical missiles.
        Technologically superior in armament to all Russian tactical
        aircraft through the use of JDAM bombs and AGM-158 missiles.
        Not to mention the significant superiority of the MLRS and artillery among the Poles.
        It may be hard for some to believe, but it's true.

      So Poland has more than fifty new F-16s, moreover, fresh modifications.
      Their electronic equipment is at least comparable to the Su-30SM.
      Their weapons are superior to those of any modern tactical Russian aircraft.
      simply because we still do not have JDAM analogues and tactical cruise missiles.
      Then the Polish aviation will operate according to the NATO AWACS system.
      This means that there will be no problems in closing the sky over Western and Central Ukraine.

    It is very likely that NATO will enter Ukraine at a distance of up to a hundred kilometers from the front line. At the request of Ukraine, of course. Then the window of opportunity for strikes against the rear of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will close. The grandmaster's companionship gives them confidence that, apart from protests and other chatter, they will not meet anything.

    Why weren't those 20 transports attacked by "Somali pirates". Well, they made a bit of a mistake, with whom it does not happen. Sailed into the North Atlantic. And then there’s an ownerless torpedo, otherwise it’s even better - a Ukrainian sea mine. Why good should disappear.
