Soldiers and equipment with the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, begin arriving to Europe from Fort Carson, Colorado, as part of Atlantic Resolve. 

The pre-planned, rotational force deployment was announced in December 2021.

Equipment for the brigade will arrive at ports in Denmark, Greece, and the Netherlands this month. Soldiers begin arriving in April. This is the ninth Atlantic Resolve armored brigade combat team rotation.

The incoming armored rotation will conduct multinational training and security cooperation activities with allies and partners in Europe. 

They will deploy with approximately 4,000 Soldiers, around 90 Abrams tanks, 15 Paladins, 150 Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicles, 500 tracked vehicles and 600 wheeled vehicles and equipment. 

All movements of personnel and equipment will adhere to the prevention and protection guidance directed by the Department of Defense, Department of the Army, Centers for Disease Control, our host nation governments and local authorities to proactively mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The health, safety and security of our personnel and those of our allies, partners and local populations is a priority.
