The US military has deployed new tanks, artillery and vehicles to Bulgaria as part of its operation to “reassure allies” in the region.

The US military sent four Abrams tanks, three artillery cannons and six light armored reconnaissance vehicles to Bulgaria on Monday in what one Heritage Foundation fellow called a “message to Russia,” Military Times reported.

The tanks, artillery and vehicles were sent to the Novo Selo training range in eastern Bulgaria, where they will join 160 US Marines stationed at the base as part of US operations in the country. The US has previously announced plans to stockpile growing volumes of equipment including tanks and artillery in the Baltic states which border Russia.

“Because this seed has been planted through these exercises and rotations, it makes ‘going big’ go that much easier,” Heritage Foundation fellow Luke Coffey, a former Army captain told Military Times of the rotations.
