In an effort to visually and physically counter Russian anti-access/area denial, or A2/AD on the eastern border of the alliance

vehicles plus helicopters from Estonia through Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and the Czech
Republic. The formation then traveled back to its base in southern Germany. Click here to see more pictures of the ride and the reception it received from various populations.
