France has deployed an armoured task force to Poland for two months of training exercises with the Polish armed forces and other NATO allies as part of alliance reassurance measures in Eastern Europe.

France's deployment of Leclerc MBTs to Poland is designed to send a strong signal to Moscow as part of NATO reassurance measures in Eastern Europe. (F Lert)

The task force, the equivalent of a Sous groupement tactique Interarmées (SGTIA - joint services tactical subgroup), left France for Poland on 20 April.

The combined task force consists of 15 Leclerc main battle tanks (MBTs) from the 12ème Régiment de Cuirassiers, a platoon from the 16ème Bataillon de Chasseurs with four VBCI 8x8 infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs), and a platoon from the 13ème Régiment du Génie with three VABs and one EBG armoured engineering vehicle.
