U.S. Army Europe and the German Army co-host the annual Strong Europe Tank Challenge on 7th Army Training Command's Grafenwoehr Training Area.
Tank platoons from NATO and partner nations are invited each year to take part in the challenge. Last year's participants came from Austria, France, Germany, Poland, Ukraine and the United States.
Participating units are tested on offensive and defensive operations as well as tasks including vehicle identification, battle damage assessment and precision maneuvers.
The Strong Europe Tank Challenge is designed to project a dynamic presence, foster military partnership, promote interoperability, and provide an environment for sharing tactics, techniques and procedures.
