President of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaite oversaw the Saber Strike military drills at the Gaiziunu Training Area in Rukla, Thursday. The combined operation involved Abrams battle tanks, Stryker, Boxer and Pandur armoured personnel carriers (APCs), a Wiesel armoured weapons carrier, a B-52 strategic bomber and an A10-C Thunderbolt II aircraft among other equipment. The Saber Strike military exercises are held annually by the US Army in the Baltic States. This year's drills involve about 1,600 troops from Lithuania and around 1,500 troops from eight NATO countries including Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Portugal, USA, Germany, Slovenia and Canada. Saber Strike has been held since 2010. This year's exercises are set to run until June 26.
