Provision of such training conditions supports presence of our strategic ally, U.S. forces and thus improves deterrence and collective defence capabilities,” Minister of National Defence Raimundas Karoblis said on September 20 at an event to observe U.S. and Lithuanian troops on joint training at Gen Silvestras Žukauskas Training Area in Pabradė. A heavy weaponry firing range suitable also for tanks to fire inert ammunition was set up here in the end of summer.
