Steven Stein, (right) a joint terminal air controller from the 11th Air Support Operations Squadron, 3rd Air Support Group, which supports the U.S. Army’s 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment, Fort Hood, Texas, works with other members of his JTAC team to plot targets during a joint training exercise at the Bollen Live-Fire Range Complex, Fort Indiantown Gap, Pennsylvania. The JTAC controllers are working with C-17A Globemaster III and A-10C Thunderbolt II aircraft in the mountainous, snowy terrain of central Pennsylvania. Bollen Range is operated by the 193rd Special Operations Wing, Detachment 1, and supports live-fire training activities for most fighter units as well as helicopter, heavy transport and special mission aircraft in the northeastern United States.

The Abrams that flew.

An M1A2 Abrams tank unloads from a C17 in Burgas, Bulgaria. Transported as part of a tank section from Germany to Bulgaria, the Abrams tank will be used by soldiers from 3rd Battalion, 69th Armor Regiment, and 2nd Squadron, 2nd Cavalry Regiment, alongside Bulgarian soldiers from the 6th Brigade Battle Group, during a tank live fire exercise during Operation Speed and Power. Operation Speed and Power is a joint training exercise which will demonstrate U.S. Army Europe’s preparedness to deliver strategic effect in Atlantic Resolve-South by showcasing the freedom of movement to maneuver and fire M1A2 Abrams anywhere along the Eastern Flank. This ability enables the NATO allies to defend themselves against all threats, and shows that the alliance remains ready to defend itself anywhere at any time.
