BEMOWO PISKIE, Poland -- Service members from NATO's enhanced Forward Presence Battle Group Poland partnered with the host nation and participated in the annual "Tank Battle" event at the Bemowo Piskie Training Area, Jul. 13.

The event consisted of military representation from the United States, Poland, Croatia, Romania, and the United Kingdom and included festival activities, vehicle displays and a series of joint force demonstrations from the nations.

This is the largest military appreciation event in Poland with over 10,000 locals in attendance and more than 30 multinational armored combat vehicles on display.

During the demonstration portion of the event, U.S. Bradleys and M1 Abrams simulated a battle alongside their allied counterparts- the Polish Leopards, PT-91s and BWP-1s. The event even featured MEDIVAC procedures simulations from the Polish HINDs helicopters.

At the end of the day, this event provided the Battle Group another opportunity to interact with the Polish locals and demonstrate their ability to work side-by-side for any training capacity.

Battle Group Poland is comprised of U.S., Croatian, Romanian, and U.K. Soldiers and works alongside host nations' 15th Mechanized Brigade as a deterrence force in northeast Poland.
