The equipment includes Stryker heavy armored transporters, Bradley infantry fighting machines and other military vehicles.

The new shift is planned to consist of about 160 US troops from the 1st Squadron 1st Cavalry Regiment. Just like earlier US shifts, the new rotation will be based in Rukla.

US contingents have been deployed in Lithuania, other Baltic States and Poland on a rotational basis since April as a response to the changes in security situation after Russia’s annexation of Crimea.
