Jan. 9, 2017

The largest U.S. Army armored brigade combat team to deploy to Europe since the end of the Cold War is underway, with convoys fanning out from Bremerhaven, Germany to training sites stretching from the Baltic to the Black Sea for a nine-month rotation on the Continent.

About 4,000 soldiers of the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division from Fort Carson, Colo., arrived in Germany along with about 90 heavy Abrams tanks and almost 3,000 other pieces of rolling stock, including artillery and Bradley Fighting Vehicles, according to the Army.
