The US Army Europe and the Polish Ministry of Defence confirmed on 13 May that the Allied Spirit exercise due to take place at Drawsko Pomorskie Training Area, Poland has been delayed.

It had originally been due to take place in May but will now happen between 5-19 June.

Allied Spirit will include a Polish Airborne operation and a US-Polish division-size river crossing practice involving at least 6,000 troops.

Approximately 4,000 US soldiers from the 1st Cavalry Division Headquarters, 2nd Armoured Brigade Combat Team, the 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade and the 3rd Infantry Division.

From Poland, 2,000 troops from the 6th Polish Airborne Brigade, 9th Polish Armoured Cavalry Brigade and the 12th Polish Mechanised Brigade will be present.

Modifications to the original plans have been made in order to improve health and safety procedures designed to prevent the spread of coronavirus during the training.
