Polish US tanks in Latvia Exercise.

(U.S. Marine Corps photo by 1st Lieutenant Kristine Racicot)

Main battle tanks driven by Polish soldiers and U.S. Marines plow through the sandy Latvian soil during a combined arms, live-fire training event at the Adazi training grounds. The tank in front appears to be a Polish PT-91 Twardy main battle tank. (Armor aficianados: please set us straight if we’re wrong.)   Don’t let that name fool you, Twardy means “hard, tough or resilient,” in Polish.

The tank in the background is a U.S. M1A2 Abrams tank fielded by the Marine Corps. This photo was taken June 9, 2017, as part of Saber Strike, an annual military exercise in the Baltic region and Poland.
