STUTTGART, Germany - Just 10 days after combat vehicles rolled off cargo ships in Bremerhaven, Germany, soldiers from the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, fired their first rounds in Europe.

The brigade joins a persistent rotational presence of American land, sea and air forces in the region operating in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve, designed to reassure NATO allies and partners in the region in light of Russia's aggression in Ukraine.

Accuracy Screening

Live-fire training Jan. 16 provided crews from the brigade's 1st Battalion, 68th Armor Regiment, and 1st Battalion, 8th Infantry Regiment, their first opportunity to zero their Bradleys' main guns and complete the live fire accuracy screening test for the M1A2 Abrams tank in western Poland.

Officials said 3rd ABCT soldiers are actively training to ensure their combat vehicles and crews are certified before deploying across Europe. The equipment began being offloaded Jan. 6 and arrived by rail over the past week. The brigade's arrival to Europe marks the start of continuous, "heel-to-toe" rotations of armored brigades in Europe as part of Operation Atlantic Resolve. This rotation will enhance deterrence capabilities in the region, improve the U.S. ability to respond to potential crises and defend NATO allies and partners in the European community, U.S. European Command officials said.

PRETORIA - Denel is on track to deliver armored patrol vehicles and light-weight remote weapon systems to Namibia within the next four months.

The contract is a substantial one and consists of eight RG32M vehicles and four SDROW weapon stations. Johan Steyn, CEO of Denel Vehicle Systems, said delivery to Namibia will be completed by the end of March 2017.

The RG32M is a mine-resistant light armored vehicle that is widely used by peacekeeping forces across the world. The latest version of the vehicle has been developed by Denel Vehicle Systems for deployment in Namibia, making use of the experience gained from the vehicle’s deployment in other parts of Africa, Asia, the Middle East and the Balkans.

It can operate in a variety of roles and offers an ideal balance of protection and mobility. The vehicle transports five crew members with their kit and special purpose equipment. The four side doors and roof-mounted hatches allow easy entry and exit for both normal and emergency use.

The Self Defence Remotely Operated Weapon (SDROW) is a lightweight weapon system fitted with a light machine gun. It is designed for easy installation on a variety of vehicles and platforms. The system can be operated remotely by one crew member from under cover, including all weapon functions such as cocking, safety and firing. Depending on the selected weapon configuration the SDROW is effective against enemy targets at a range of over 600 meters.
