POTD: 105mm – M1 Abrams in Europe

    POTD: 105mm - M1 Abrams in Europe

    The first online photograph is said to have been published by Tim Berners-Lee in 1992. It’s uncertain how many were actually able to see the image at that time, probably not that many. TFB’s Photo Of The Day is a lot more popular for sure. Here we do our best to focus on interesting high-quality images, like the “frozen” 105mm round above.

    We see a gunner for 1st Squadron, 4th Cavalry Regiment (1-4) “Quarterhorse,” 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division fires an M1 Abrams 105mm round as part of Gunnery Table VI crew qualifications at Świętoszów, Poland, August, 2021.

    The 1-4 is were deployed to Poland in support of Atlantic Resolve. The persistent presence of armored and mechanized infantry units across Central and Eastern Europe sends a powerful message of commitment and reassurance.
