Meet Norway’s Tank Commander - Norway’s Telemark Battalion
Norway sent a tank company to Lithuania in May to support NATO’s enhanced forward presence. The company, of around 200 troops, was sent from Norway’s Telemark Battalion. They provided combat support to the German-led multinational battalion. Commanding one of the platoons is Lieutenant Silje Johansen Willassen, Norway’s Telemark Battalion’s first female tank commander. Lieutenant Willassen discusses the deployment and how she’s looking forward to working with NATO Allies. At the NATO Warsaw Summit last year, plans were announced to increase troop numbers in the eastern part of the Alliance with the deployment of four battalions to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland on a rotational basis. Footage includes tanks live-firing on a range and soundbites from Lieutenant Willassen.
