A terrifying array of weaponry arrived in the city of Gdansk on Wednesday when the 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, rolled in.

The deployment is part of Operation Atlantic Resolve, a project to shore-up NATO forces in eastern Europe after Russia annexed the Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.

Coupled with battalions in the Baltics, the build-up has been described as NATO’s largest reinforcement in eastern Europe since the Cold War.

Master Sergeant Brent Williams told Stars and Stripes: “This will be the first time two armoured brigades transition within the European theatre sending a full complement of soldiers and equipment into Germany and Poland in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve.”

It comes over concerns that Russia may be eyeing another land grab in eastern Europe.

In a show of power, Moscow is carrying out a range of military exercises in Belarus, the Baltic Sea and its Kalingrad enclave over the coming days.

And NATO believes the drills could involve around 100,000 troops and include nuclear-capable ballistic missiles.
