Press Release – 2nd Cavalry Regiment to conduct training in Hungary

Feb. 18, 2022

WIESBADEN, Germany —

As part of our long-standing practical and continuous engagement, Hungarian and U.S. forces conduct joint training on the basis of the Letter of Arrangement (existing since 2019, reaffirmed in 2021) between the Hungarian Ministry of Defense and the United States Army Europe and Africa concerning bilateral combined training. 

Our joint training and exercises are a visible example of our cooperation.

These activities of several years will now include a U.S. Army Stryker troop that will train alongside the highly-capable Hungarian Defense Forces. Such training missions help to ensure our readiness and interoperability as NATO Allies.

This is part of a longstanding partnership between our Armed Forces which has always aimed to advance interoperability through bilateral training. Accordingly, this measure is a result of already existing arrangements.

This troop is a part of the 2nd Cavalry Regiment, a mounted infantry unit based in Germany, equipped with wheeled armored fighting vehicles. It is designed to deploy on short order and move quickly once in place.
