The Pentagon will place approximately 250 tanks, Bradley fighting vehicles and self-propelled howitzers throughout six countries that are close to Russia, the department announced Tuesday.
Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Romania, along with Germany, will have company- to battalion-sized equipment sets located inside their territory under the new plan, dubbed the European Activity Set.
It certainly makes more sense than sending units own equipment over to train with for 30 days and then back home.
And of course, it sends a message to both our allies and Russia. Unfortunately, that message is a quiet whisper, and not a robust pronouncement.
