According to Cpt. Rafal Ługiewicz, the core of the detached assets is based upon the 7th Rocket Artillery Battery, equipped with the WR-40 “Langusta” launchers. The rocket artillery specialists were sent to Latvia by the Acting Commander of the 11th Artillery Regiment Lt. Col. Piotr Ciepliński, wishing them a lot of training successes and a safe trip back.
The element commanded by Cpt. Tomasz Cichecki, once it reaches the Latvian village of Adazi, would begin a 1-month long preparatory training cycle aimed at force integration, which would be a stage preceding the CERTEX exercise, scheduled to be held during the last week of August, in collaboration with the NATO battalion battle group.
Latvia also hosts a Polish “Łotwa” [Latvia] military deployment, formed by elements of the 9th “Braniewska” Armoured Cavalry Brigade and of the 1st “Pomeranian” Logistical Brigade hailing from Bydgoszcz, with 170 Polish troops involved. PT-91 Twardy main battle tanks are the primary armament of that unit which is a part of the NATO Multinational Battalion Battle Group, deployed to Latvia as a part of the Enhanced Forward Presence initiative.
