U.S. Army Europe and the German Army co-host the Strong Europe Tank Challenge at 7th Army Training Command's Grafenwoehr Training Area. There is no event scheduled for 2019.
Tank platoons from NATO ally and partner nations are invited each year to take part. 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.
