POTD: Belgian Armed Forces in Exercise Iron Wolf

Photo Of The Day where we once again let the machine gun do the talking. We see a Belgian Armed Forces soldier as he engages the enemy during a dynamic display. This happened during Exercise Iron Wolf 22 at Pabradė Training Area, in Lithuania, in October 2022.

Belgium is working alongside the 1st Infantry Division, NATO allies and regional security partners to provide combat-credible forces to V Corps, America’s forward-deployed corps in Europe.

How to start a forest fire, as displayed by Belgian Armed Forces soldiers? They’re using something called “Enhanced Forward Presence Vehicles” as referred to in the captions, which look like main battle tanks. U.S. Soldiers assigned to Ares Company were there as well with their M1A2 Abrams MBTs.

Please check back tomorrow for another set of photos about what’s going on in the world, in all sorts of places.
