POTD: Crystal Arrow 2022

    Crystal Arrow 2022

    TFB’s Photo Of The Day has become an impressive gallery, with an ever-growing number of images of firearms in all sorts of environments. Today we’re going to add a few more, on the subject of CRYSTAL ARROW. This is the biggest tactical exercise of its kind involving NATO enhanced Forward Presence Battle Group Latvia and allies from U.S. Army Europe and Africa and Mechanized Brigade.

    The aim was to improve the interoperability during tactical operations, including the demonstration of winter capability. The exercise will develop and enhance NATO and key partner interoperability and readiness across offensive and defensive operations.

    Tracks or wheels – what do you think works best?

    The .50 BMG with an adapter to fire blanks.

    Latvia will also host a massive military exercise with US soldiers participating called Saber Strike 22.

    That’s a lot of sensors in a box. I presume you don’t want to be in its sights.
