Infantry Troops from Craiova Prepare for a Mission in Poland
Over 100 troops of the 2nd “Rovine” Infantry Brigade from Craiova prepare for a mission in Poland. They are to be deployed in the first half of the year for about six months.
A Romanian air-defence detachment, consisting of an anti-aircraft OERLIKON-type battery with maximum six pieces, will participate, in agreement with the commitments made by Romania after NATO Summit in Warsaw, in the consolidation of the augmented allied forward presence on the northern segment of the eastern flank.
At the same time, the framework was created to render operational the Multinational Brigade, based on the structure of the 2nd Infantry Brigade Craiova, in which Poland will be also involved with a company.
The troops from Craiova have a solid experience in theaters of operations, based on the many missions carried out in Afghanistan, Iraq and the Western Balkans. The brigade has modern combat weapon systems, which will ensure the full compatibility and interoperability with the allied structures.
