Polish Navy begins sea trials of first Kormoran II mine warfare vessel
Jul 13, 2016

Remontowa Shipbuilding S.A. begun sea trials of its first Kormoran II – modern mine warfare vessel for the Polish Navy. That reported by www.zbiam.pl

The programme was reactivated in 2007 as Kormoran II. Formal work got under way in July 2011. On 26 January 2013, the Remontowa Shipbuilding-led consortium was selected to deliver the programme. Contract signing followed on 23 September 2013. The three-ship contract is worth PLN1.2 billion (USD322 million). Build work on the first ship started in April 2014.

Kormoran II is designed by Remontowa Shipbuilding in co-operation with Centrum Techniki Morskiej (CTM), and is based on a non-magnetic steel hull.

The three vessels – Kormoran , ORP Albatros (602), and ORP Mewa (602) – will replace the 1960s-built Project 206FM mine warfare vessels ORP Czajka , ORP Flaming , and ORP Mewa (vessels that were upgraded in 1998-2001).

Ukrainian Nationalists Claim Cyberattack on Polish Defense Ministry
Jaroslaw Adamowski, Defense News 12:55 p.m. EDT July 15, 2016




WARSAW, Poland — A group of hackers that associates itself with the Ukrainian far-right political party Right Sector claims it has gained access to the servers of Poland’s Ministry of Defence, from where the group alleges to have collected classified information.

The Polish ministry said the information was not classified, and it is currently investigating the alleged cyberattack.

“Regarding the information on a break-in to the computer network of the Polish Ministry of Defence, we clarify that it was a manipulation designed to create an impression of a dangerous cyberattack,” Bartlomiej Misiewicz, the ministry’s spokesman, said in a statement.

Poland Plans To Spend $21B on Drones, Helos, Air Defense, Subs
Jaroslaw Adamowski, Defense News 2:15 p.m. EDT July 20, 2016



WARSAW, Poland — The Polish Ministry of Defense aims to spend at least 83 billion zloty (US $21 billion) on acquisitions of new weapons and military equipment for the country’s armed forces, according to Poland’s Deputy Defense Minister Bartosz Kownacki.

“The leadership of the ministry has defined its priorities, and the air-defense program is such a priority,” Kownacki said July 19 at a meeting of the Polish parliament’s National Defense Committee.

More specifically, the defense ministry will be required to spend some $10 billion to acquire mid-range air- and missile-defense systems, over $5 billion on short-range air-defense systems, $3.3 billion to purchase combat helicopters for the country’s Air Force, and $2.5 billion on new submarines for the Polish navy. Poland is also planning to spend “several billion zloty” to acquire unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), according to the deputy defense minister.

Poland, Slovakia Discuss AMV Acquisition Amid Conflicting Reports
Jaroslaw Adamowski, Defense News 1:01 p.m. EDT July 22, 2016





WARSAW, Poland — Poland’s and Slovakia’s defense ministries are negotiating the purchase of eight-wheel drive Rosomak armored modular vehicles (AMV) by Slovakia, the Polish Defence Ministry said in a statement Thursday. This comes following Slovak news reports on plans by Slovakia’s Defence Ministry to scrap the acquisition.

Bartlomiej Misiewicz, the spokesman for the Polish Ministry of Defense, said negotiations “will be continued, as indicated by the talks by the defense ministers of Poland and Slovakia that took place during NATO’s summit in Warsaw.”

The Slovak military was to acquire 30 vehicles, which are built by Polish manufacturer Rosomak S.A. under a license from Finland’s Patria, within a three-year period in what was announced as the largest Polish-Slovak military deal in history. However, an unnamed Slovak Defence Ministry official told Slovakian media outlet SME that the project was “stopped due to [its] military and economic disadvantageousness for Slovakia.”

Polish and German troops deployed to Estonia
Jul 22, 2016





A mechanized company of the Polish 17th Mechanized Brigade, utilizing the Rosomak armoured vehicles, along with a German element of the 23rd Highland Infantry Brigade of the Bundeswehr, are involved together in an exercise in Estonia, organized within the scope of provision of support for the NATO Eastern Flank.

That reported by www.defence24.com.

The Polish unit has made its trip to Estonia between June and July, once its involvement in an exercise in Latvia came to an end. The Company of the 7th Battalion (7th Greater Poland Cavalry Riflemen Battalion), equipped with the Rosomak wheeled APCs, is the first unit which has been selected to maintain permanent rotational land forces presence in the Baltic republics, within the framework of providing support for the NATO Eastern Flank. Later in August, the unit is going to be involved in an exercise in Latvia.

A company of the German 231st Highland Infantry Battalion of the 23rd Highland Infantry Brigade has also been deployed to Estonia. The exercise, taking place in Estonia and involving two elements of the aforementioned battalion, is going to last until October. The equipment used by the Germans includes the Boxer and Fuchs wheeled armoured platforms. The Germans have deployed more than 50 vehicles of a variety of types to Estonia. Relocation was carried out via sea and railway routes.

Commander of the Estonian 1st Infantry Brigade stressed the fact that presence maintained by the Polish and German companies within the territory of Estonia, alongside the US units, should have a positive impact on the capabilities related to cooperation of the armed forces of the above listed states. Poland decided to take part in this type of training. At the same time, the territory of Poland remains a location within which reinforced presence of the NATO units is also seen and expected.

Poland Unleashes MIG-29M Simulator as Tensions Between NATO-Russia Mount


The Polish air force reveled in the simulated experience of Moscow’s advanced 1,616MPH (2600kmh) MiG29-M fighter jet as Warsaw prepares for the mythical threat of Russian aggression.

The Polish air force reveled in the simulated experience of Moscow’s advanced 1,616MPH (2600kmh) MiG-29M fighter jet as Warsaw prepares for the mythical threat of Russian aggression.



The simulator has a digital visualization system with six projectors that provide 3D images on a spherical screen surrounding the simulator’s cabin. The high-tech simulated replica cost nearly $6 million is stationed at Poland’s 23rd Air Base in the town of Minsk Mazowiecki.

The system allows Polish pilots to work through dogfights, intercepts, and in-flight emergency procedure training. The system’s cabin is an exact replica of the cockpit of the MiG-29M with indicators, switches, and displays in a format compatible with the actual instrumentation of the fighter jet, explained Col. Marciej Trelka, the commander of the 23rd Air Base in Minsk Mazowiecki.

Pilots using the simulator will be able to train for all types of situations, says Col. Trelka including "dogfights, building captures and almost all emergencies that may occur during a real flight. This can be a fire, an engine failure or failed generator, and also pilot disorientation."
Poland announced the acquisition of the simulator that is now operational two weeks ago and the system is now operational. Trainees are able to employ the full range of weaponry for the MiG-29M platform including the GSh-30-1 gun, R-27, R-73, and R-20 air-to-air missiles (AAMs), S-8 and S-24 unguided air-to-ground rockets, as well as OFAB-100-120, OFAB-250, and OFAB-500 unguided bombs.

The move to train Polish fighters with and for the MiG-29M comes in the wake of Poland demanding that NATO stage a permanent troop presence on its border with Russia – a demand that the defense alliance agreed to during the Warsaw Summit.

NATO has ramped up its provocations on Russia’s border in recent months culminating in the massive Anaconda War Games featuring over 30,000 forces and heavy equipment in an effort led by the German Army on the 75th anniversary of the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has long scoffed at the Cold War rhetoric of 'Russian aggression' or militarist fantasies that Moscow plans to invade NATO members.

"I think that only an insane person and only in a dream can imagine that Russia would suddenly attack NATO. I think some countries are simply taking advantage of people’s fears with regard to Russia," explained Putin. "They just want to play the role of front-line countries that should receive some supplementary military, economic, financial or some other aid,"

Poland Intends To Finalize Patriot Sale Agreement by Year’s End
Jen Judson, Defense News 10:51 a.m. EDT July 26, 2016


WASHINGTON — The Polish government intends to finalize an agreement with the US government by the end of the year to buy the Raytheon-made Patriot air and missile defense system, the Polish defense minister said.

The initial agreement will cover the sale of two Patriot systems, Antoni Macierewicz told Defense News in a exclusive July 22 interview. And Poland will get more than 50 percent of the work share to build Patriot, something the country was adamant about when defining its terms.

Poland’s leading state-run defense group PGZ signed a letter of intent with Raytheon to cooperate on Wisla — Poland's new missile defense program — paving the way for the country's acquisition of Patriot missiles, PGZ said in a statement earlier this month.

PGZ was set up in 2013 to consolidate Poland's fragmented, state-owned defense industry. The Polish Ministry of Treasury remains the main shareholder of PGZ, but the group is subordinated to the country’s Ministry of Defence.

Poland changes its procurement priorities

Remigiusz Wilk, Warsaw - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
27 July 2016

Poland's Law and Justice government is set to revise the procurement priorities of its armed forces, as set out by the country's Technological Modernization Programme (PMT).

The current PMT outlines 14 key programmes, although several programmes are now set to be dropped and others prioritised. The General Staff group is currently working on updating the PMT 2016-2022 and the new document is to be unveiled in mid-September.

However, IHS Jane's understands that programmes set to be cancelled include plans to purchase a battlefield management systems (BMS) for its 317 Rosomak (licence-built Patria AMV) 8x8 vehicles; the Orlik programme to purchase 15 short-range tactical unmanned aerial systems (UASs, each with 3-5 aircraft); and the Wizjer programme to purchase 36 mini-UAS (each of 4-5 aircraft).

Poland Sees No Threats From Russian Side - Presidential Office


he Russian side poses no threats for Poland due to the country's strengthened military capacity, the Polish president's Press Service Head Marek Magierowski said on.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A NATO summit was held on July 8-9 in Poland's capital and focused on relations with Russia. During the summit, the Alliance decided to strengthen its military presence in Eastern Europe on a rotational basis with four battalions in Poland and in the Baltic nations.


"I think no. Basically due to the NATO Summit, which was recently held in Warsaw, thanks to the efforts of President Andrzej Duda, Poland, as well as other countries, will have strengthened capacity in the military context. This is a very explicit signal, directed to Russia and meaning that any intervention in any form, either in a form of an attack, or in a form of a hybrid war, or in a form of attacks in cyberspace will not pay off," he said Thursday on Polish television when answering a question on whether Poland sees threats from Russia in the near future.

According to Magierowski, such signal will increase after NATO military personnel are deployed to Poland and the Baltic states, so that Russia could not undertake "risky and reckless measures."

Polish, US Soldiers prep for downrange missions with river crossing
Read news from Defence Blog at Flipboard.com | Subscribe to the newsletter from Defence Blog
Sep 4, 2016



Concealed among thick foliage, soldiers patiently scanned the water’s edge through the scopes of their M4 carbines. When the signal was given, dismounted troops quietly slipped into the frigid, flowing water and secured the far side of the river.

Then they made way for the M1A2 Abrams tanks to ford through.

On Wednesday, Aug. 24, Soldiers of Company D, 3rd Combined Arms Battalion, 69th Armor Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division, joined forces with Polish Soldiers of the 10th Armoured Cavalry Brigade, 11th Armoured Division, to conduct a river crossing exercise at Zagan Training Area, Poland.

At a break in the tree line, Polish engineers deployed two armored vehicle-launched bridges to span the width of the waterway. Then the additional forces crossed, including two U.S. crews mounted in M2A2 Bradley Fighting Vehicles and Polish crews in BMP infantry fighting vehicles



“We were able to see how (the Polish forces’) tactics and our tactics mesh together to accomplish the mission,” said Staff Sgt. Brian Gougler, squad leader, D Company, 3-69 AR. “It was a good mixture allowing everyone to have a say in what was happening.”

Planning and communication played a significant role in the preparation and success of the exercise explained Gougler. The day prior, they had walked through the plan in an open field. Now that the Soldiers were tackling the unfamiliar terrain, the operation was going smoothly.

“The weekly syncs that the commander, the command groups, and the interpreters have with the Polish command group have been instrumental in allowing us to come out here and do the things we do,” said 1st Sgt. Mark Martin, senior enlisted advisor, D Company, 3-69 AR.

Saab readies TESS for Polish armed forces

Giles Ebbutt, London - IHS Jane's International Defence Review
05 September 2016

Saab will supply a Tactical Engagement Simulation System (TESS) to the General Tadeusz Kosciuszko Military Academy of Land Forces (Wyzsza Szkola Oficerska Wojsk Ladowych) (WSOWL) in Wroclaw, Poland. Saab describes this as a first order under a two-year agreement. The value of the order has not been disclosed.

There are two main elements to a TESS: the laser transmitter, detector and weapon effects system, and the instrumentation and tracking system that provides detailed after action reports (AAR).

The laser transmitter is fitted to the weapon which "fires" an eye-safe laser beam. When this encounters a laser detector it triggers a response according to the type of laser "fired".

Poland will seek formal U.S. approval to buy eight Patriot missile defense systems



Poland will seek formal U.S. approval to buy eight Patriot missile defense systems from Raytheon Co , marking a key move toward closing the estimated $5 billion deal, the Warsaw government and the U.S. company said on Tuesday.

“Poland’s formal request is an important milestone toward becoming the 6th NATO Patriot country and the 14th Patriot partner nation,” Wes Kremer, president of Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems, said in a statement.

The deal calls for eight systems, a Polish government statement said.

Raytheon agreed to perform at least half the value of the work in Poland, Polish Defense Minister Antoni Macierewicz said in July.

Raytheon said in its statement it had already signed eight contracts and more than 30 letters of intent with Polish companies.

Sources familiar with the proposed sale said the announcement looked like a firm commitment by Poland to move ahead.

As of Tuesday afternoon, the U.S. government had not yet received the letter of request, but officials expect it to arrive soon.

The missile defense tender is central to Warsaw’s large-scale army modernization program, speeded up in response to the Ukraine crisis and Russia’s renewed assertiveness in the region.

Poland Upgrades Soviet-Origin Land Military Hardware
(Source: TASS Defense; published Sept 05, 2016)
MOSCOW --- Warsaw is upgrading the pieces of land military hardware inherited from the Soviet Union and former state members of the Warsaw Pact in order to increase the level of compliance with the armed forces of NATO nations. However, the share of the Soviet-originated equipment in service with the Polish army remains high.

In late August 2016, Poland`s media released a footage, showing the demonstrator of an upgraded PT-91 Twardy [a modification of T-72M1 - TASS] main battle tank developed by the OBRUM design bureau and manufactured by the Zaklady Mechaniczne Bumar-Labedy SA. The combat vehicle was designated as PT-16. It received a 120mm STANAG-compatible main gun designed by Polish Huta Stalowa Wola SA.

The vehicle was supposed to be able to fire all types of tank munitions [including armour-piercing fin-stabilized discarding sabot (APFSDS), high-explosive anti-tank (HEAT), and high-explosive (HE) rounds - TASS] used by the armed forces of NATO state members. TASS supposes that the vehicle received an autoloader developed by the Polish industry that replaced the ageing one of PT-91/T-72M1 MBTs.

The tank's armour protection was drastically reinforced over its predecessors. The frontal arc of PT-16 was shored up with composite armour plates that allowed increasing of the vehicle's front protection to 1,000 mm of rolled homogeneous armour (RHA) against HEAT rounds [it is equal to the armour protection of the Leopard 2A5 main battle tank - TASS]. The MBT is planned to get an advanced fire control system (FCS), as well as turret and main gun electric drives with digital control. PT-16 is powered by single V-46TK (1,000 h.p.) multi-fuel diesel engine designed by the Serbian defense industry.

The main gun was complemented by the ZSDU Korbuz remote controlled weapon station (RCWS) armed with a 12.7mm WKM-Bm [a licensed copy of the Soviet NSVT light weapon - TASS] heavy machinegun chambered for 12.7x99mm STANAG 4383 cartridge. The WKM-Bm machinegun is produced by the Tarnuv Mechanical Plant. The PT-16 program was implemented within six months [including the manufacturing of the demonstrator - TASS] by the Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa SA (PGZ) consortium, using the enterprise's own funds.

Despite the decline to upgrade the PT-91 Twardy tanks announced by the Polish Defense Ministry, the national military has revealed its interest in the PT-16 MBT, according to PGZ. The company is planning to conduct the negotiations over PT-16 development and further acquisition with Poland's Land Forces at the MSPO 2016 defense show in Kielce that will open on September 6.

At present, the Polish military operates a mixture of Leopard 2A4/2A5, T-72M1, and PT-91 main battle tanks. According to the Military Balance 2016 report issued by the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), Warsaw has 971 MBT in service, including 142 Leopard 2A4, 91 Leopard 2A5, 233 PT-91 Twardy, and 505 T-72/T-72M1/T-72M1D tanks. Hence, the venerable T-72 tank previously produced in Poland under the license granted by the Soviet Union remains the backbone of the Polish Land Forces. Considering the lack of the national Defense Ministry's intention to update the Twardy tanks, the ageing T-72/T-72M1/T-72M1D MBT might be rebuilt into PT-16s in a long-term perspective.

Warsaw is rapidly upgrading its fleet of armoured fighting vehicle (AFV).

Several years ago, the Polish defense industry acquired the license from the Finnish Patria company to produce Patria AFVs equipped with an Oto Melara combat turret under the Rosomak (Wolverine) designation. According to the Military Balance 2016 report, the Polish army has received 570 operational Rosomaks, while retaining 1,268 BWP-1s [a copy of the Soviet BMP-1 infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) produced by Poland under license - TASS]. The replacement of the BWP-1 vehicles is a bread-and-butter issue for the Polish government, as the IFVs are obsolete and do not meet the requirements to modern armour to full extent. BWP-1 is a full copy of its Soviet ancestor armed with a 73mm Grom semi-automatic cannon, a PKT Kalashnikov machinegun, and one ready-to-use 9M14M Malyutka-M (NATO reporting name: AT-3 Sagger B) anti-tank guided missile (ATGM).

Poland also operates 237 BRDM-2 and 73 BWR-1D Soviet-originated armoured reconnaissance vehicles (ARV) that are also supposed to be replaced by modern ARVs in the near future [probably, by a reconnaissance variant of the Rosomak IFV - TASS]. However, the fleet of Polish mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicles is relatively new, as the United States have supplied 115 MRAPs to Warsaw in the recent years, including 40 Cougars (on loan from the US), 45 M-ATVs, and 30 Maxxpros.

The Polish artillery units are equipped with Soviet-originated military hardware to a high degree. According to the Military Balance 2016 report, Warsaw has in service 292 122mm 2S1M Gozdzik [a licensed copy of the Soviet 2S1 Gvozdika/Carnation self-propelled gun - TASS] and 111 152mm M-77 Dana [supplied by Czechoslovakia - TASS] self-propelled guns (SPG), 75 BM-21 Grad, 30 RM-70, and 75 WR-40 Langusta multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS), 89 M-98 and 95 Soviet 120mm mortars.

Poland's arsenal of ATGMs includes Soviet 9M14M Malyutka-M and 9M111 Fagot (AT-4 Spigot) missiles, as well as Israeli Spike-LRs.

The Polish air defense units have retained a huge number of Soviet-originated surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems. As of 2016, the national Land Forces operate 20 2K12 Kub (SA-6 Gainful), 64 9K33 Osa-AK (SA-8 Gecko; partially upgraded by the Polish defense industry) SAM systems, as well as 9K32 Strela-2 (SA-7 Grail) and GROM/GROM-2 man-portable air defense (MANPADS) weapons. They have also retained Soviet anti-air guns, including 8 ZSU-23-4 Shilka and 20 ZSU-23-4MP Biala [an upgrade of Soviet ZSU-23-4 Shilka by the Polish defense industry - TASS] self-propelled anti-air guns (SPAAG), 252 ZU-23-2 and 72 ZUR-23-2KG/PG AA guns.

The acquisition of modern combat and utility helicopters is a vital issue for Poland's Defense Ministry, as the national Army Aviation is using ageing Soviet-originated platforms, for the most part. The Polish rotor-wing aircraft fleet includes 28 Mil Mi-24V/D (Hind D/Hind E) gunships, 7 Mi-8MT (Hip), 7 Mi-8T (Hip), 3 Mi-17 (Hip-H), 5 Mi-17-1V (Hip), 25 Mi-2 (Hoplite), 16 Mi-2URP (Hoplite), and 24 W-3W/WA Sokol multirole helicopters, 1 Mi-17AE (Hip) and 2 W-3AE Sokol medical evacuation helicopters, and 4 W-3PL Gluszec combat search-and-rescue (CSAR) helicopters.

Despite relatively high defense budget [PZL32 billion/USD10.2 billion in 2014 and PZL38.3 billion/USD10.3 billion in 2015] and the military aid provided by the United States [USD14 million in 2014, USD9 million in 2015, and USD6 million in 2016], most of the programs to phase out Soviet-originated equipment have stalled. Hence, the Soviet platforms will remain the backbone of the Polish Land Forces for years to come.

Poland’s Desire to Buy Patriot Missiles ‘Just a PR Stunt’



Poland is negotiating the purchase of over 10 billion dollars’ worth of Patriot missiles in the US, Defense Minister Antony Macierewicz said earlier this week. Sputnik asked Mariusz Olszewski, an independent Polish analyst, to comment on the purchase of Patriot missiles many experts describe as “outdated.”

“Many specialists believe that this generation of Patriot missiles does not fully meet the demands of modern warfare. Then why buy them? Donald Trump said that each NATO member should pay for its membership and if the Patriots are going to be upgrades and [Raytheon] has no money for that, then it looks like they have asked Poland to pay the bill,” Mariusz Olszewski said.

l
He added that [Defense Minister] Antony Macierewicz was apparently sure that no one was threatening Poland if he decided to buy a missile system that could be effectively used only after a series of upgrades slated for 2028.

When asked if this was a financially lucrative deal for the Americans, Mariusz Olszewski said it was kind of a “kickback” on Poland’s part because economic relations within the EU, as well as those dealing with defense and security, have long been viewed as business deals. “Just like the contract we signed to buy F-16 fighter planes. All we can do to make the Americans pay attention to us is to sign deals that are financially beneficial to them and make the Polish people pay for them. This is even cheaper than hosting CIA prisons in our territory,” Olszewski continued. He added, however, that he wasn’t sure that Poland was actually going to shell out the $10 billion-plus for the patriot missiles. “I see this as just a PR stunt on the part of our defense minister who is eager to arm our military and sign contracts. Besides, this smacks too much of politics and political preferences which, sadly enough, do not always coincide with our military needs.” “As to whether Poland can afford such outlays, we should not forget that Poland is far from being an economic superpower. With the government trying hard to bring our spending in line with what we earn, we should be extremely careful about our military spending. That’s why I don’t think this [deal to buy Patriot missiles] will ever come to fruition,” Mariusz Olszewski said in conclusion. Warsaw wants to buy 6 to 8 Patriot batteries from US manufacturing company Raytheon. Raytheon’s Patriot is an advanced air and missile defense system capable of taking down ballistic and cruise missiles, planes and drones. In 2009, the United States and NATO agreed to include Poland in its ballistic missile defense system in Europe. Russia has raised concerns over the close proximity of the ballistic missile systems to its borders, pointing out that deployments could upset regional strategic balance.

MSPO: Partenariat Thales et PGZ

L'accord de partenariat a été annoncé lors du salon polonais de défense MSPO, qui se déroule actuellement à Kielce. Le français Thales a signé avec la holding polonaise PGZ (Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa) un projet de production locale de la roquette de 68 mm à induction de sa filiale TDA. L'accord comprend la production pour le marché national mais également la commercialisation export, précise Thales dans son communiqué. La production sera réalisée a l'usine de Mesko à Skarżysko-Kamienna.
Cet accord, a priori, ne devrait entrer en vigueur que dans le cas où Varsovie sélectionnerait l'hélicoptère d'attaque Tigre d'Airbus Helicopters. La production locale de la roquette du Tigre fait, très probablement partie du volet offset de l'offre française, une partie jugée primordiale pour remporter la compétition. Ainsi les industriels français se mettent en ordre de marche pour remporter cet important marché de 32 hélicoptères d'attaque visant à remplacer la flotte vieillissante de Mi-24. Airbus, qui a déjà placé 50 Caracal (lire ici) se retrouve en compétition contre Bell, Boeing et AgustaWestland avec son T-129.

Polish, U.S. Soldiers work together to defeat armored ‘enemies’



Polish Soldiers from the 6th Mechanized Company and their U.S. Army infantry allies conducted a simulated armored assault against American Soldiers role-playing an opposing force during training at Hohenfels Training Area, Germany, on Sep. 2, 2016.

That was reported by www.army.mil.

During the training, a Polish company from the 2/17th Mechanized Battalion, integrated an American heavy weapons platoon during a movement to contact to find the opposing forces.

The Polish-American task force led the assault through the hills of Hohenfels, maneuvering their armored vehicles while searching out the elusive OPFOR Soldiers consisting of modified U.S. Army M113 fighting vehicles and Slovenian T-72 tanks.

“This is my first multinational military training,” Polish 1st Lt. Tomasz Mazurek, the 6th Mechanized Company commander, said. “So, this is a huge, huge effort for me. And, I think it will be very beneficial for me and for my company to train with U.S. Soldiers.”

When the Polish and U.S. forces caught the OPFOR, they were able to engage in a running battle that started in one valley, climbed a ridge, and finally ended in a second valley near the first. As they fought deeper, they encountered tougher enemies.

Fighting in the hills was a new experience for some of the Polish Soldiers, but it provided them with valuable knowledge to fold in to future training.

“This whole area is new for my soldiers because we haven’t trained in hills, in mountains with a lot of forests,” Mazurek said. “This is new for my company and I hope we can find a solution to use in our training in Poland.”

After training and fighting together, the Polish Soldiers and the U.S. infantrymen of 3rd Platoon, the “Spiros” of Dragon Company, 1st Battalion, 30th Infantry Regiment, were able to communicate despite a language barrier, said Mazurek. This was accomplished by using hand signals that troops from both nations could understand.

The training was part of Combined Resolve VII, a 7th Army Training Command, U.S. Army Europe-directed exercise taking place at the Grafenwoehr and Hohenfels Training Areas, Aug. 8 to Sept. 15, 2016. The exercise is designed to train the Army’s regionally allocated forces to the U.S. European Command. Combined Resolve VII includes more than 3,500 participants from 16 NATO and European partner nations.
