US is set to deploy more than 6,000 soldiers along the NATO frontier in Eastern Europe in a bid to scare off Russia, reports say. US military officials say that the soldiers will help reassure European allies against a possible Russian invasion.
According to the Inquisitr, the US plans to establish its 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team and the 10th Combat Aviation Brigade in European countries, which include Latvia, Bulgaria, Estonia, Germany and Romania. The US military plans to ship UH-60 Blackhawk choppers, the M2 Bradley counter infantry vehicles, the M1 Abrams tanks and the M109 Paladin howitzers.
“I am confident we are the right heavy brigade to continue the armored presence in Europe,” says Colonel Christopher R. Norrie, the commander of the 3rd Armored Brigade. “Living and training alongside our NATO allies and partners on a daily basis will provide ample opportunities to build a comprehensive team that strengthens defensive capabilities and deters aggression in Europe.”
NATO nations, such as the UK, also said that they will be increasing their military presence across the Baltic states to thwart Russian invasion.
In October, the US also announced that they were deploying troops from the Marine Corps to Norway. Russia was not happy about the decision.
Experts believe that Russia could start another world war overnight. Given Russia’s well-trained and well-equipped military, its military could easily launch assaults within hours.
