STUTTGART, Germany — The top U.S. officer in Europe told lawmakers Tuesday he has insufficient military firepower on the Continent and wants two more Navy warships under his command along with more ground forces to counter Russia.

Gen. Curtis M. Scaparrotti, head of U.S. European Command and NATO’s supreme allied commander, said additional forces are needed in light of Russia’s military modernization efforts that threaten to “erode” the U.S.’s military advantage. https://www.stripes.com/news/eucom-commander-requests-2-more-navy-destroyers-extra-ground-troops-for-europe-1.571427
