Operation Bison Drawsko

January 14, 2017

Gepubliceerd op 12 jan. 2017

De eerste treinen met militair materieel denderen momenteel Polen binnen. De wagons staan vol pantserrups- en wielvoertuigen, bergingstanks en containers. Alles is bedoeld voor Bison Drawsko, de grootste landmachtoefening in jaren. De laatste trein arriveert naar verwachting medio volgende week.

Aan Bison Drawsko, genoemd naar de bizon in het brigade-embleem en oefenterrein Drawsko, nemen zo’n 3.600 Nederlandse militairen deel. Zij vormen samen met meer dan 900 militairen uit België, Canada, Duitsland, Estland, Polen en de Verenigde Staten een eenheid ter grootte van een brigade. Die staat onder bevel van brigadegeneraal Jan Swillens, commandant 43 Gemechaniseerde Brigade.

*Poland welcomes thousands of US troops in NATO show of force

American soldiers “stand united on Polish soil to deter and defend,” said Maj. Gen. Timothy McGuire, deputy commander of US Land Forces in Europe. He added that the troops’ arrival was a “concrete sign of the continued US commitment to the defense of Poland and the NATO alliance.”

*Poland to increase the size of army by 50 per cent to ‘guarantee the integrity’

(Published 8:06PM GMT 26 Nov 2015)

(excerpt)

Under the plan the Polish army would grow from its current strength of 100,000 to 150,000 as the country continues to expand the capabilities of its armed forces. Poland has pledged to hit the unofficial Nato defence spending target of two per cent of GDP and has launched an intensive modernisation programme.

 

Speaking about the army, Michal Jach, head of the Polish parliament’s defence committee, said an increase in size was part of a “profound reform to achieve a level of operational capacity that would guarantee the integrity of the Polish borders”.

 

The move reflects growing Polish security concerns. Poland has viewed with alarm the conflict in neighbouring Ukraine and the actions of what it considers as a revanchist Russia.
