Torgelow (dpa/mv) - After a four-year break, there will be a louder exercise with battle tanks and combat shooting again in Western Pomerania from December 7th. The Panzergrenadierbrigade 41 pointed this out on Wednesday in Torgelow (West Pomerania-Greifswald). There could be "more shooting noise than usual" on December 7th and 8th at the Jägerbrück military training area.
Jägerbrück is around 130 kilometers north of Berlin. The exercise site, which is partly forested, is 12.5 kilometers long and about 10 kilometers wide. This includes a barracks that Bundeswehr units last used on the way to the NATO mission in Lithuania. There are other Bundeswehr barracks in and around Torgelow. With around 4,500 soldiers, Brigade 41 is the largest army unit in MV.
