"This critical shipment will help us continue to enable the Nato alliance," Colonel Matthew Redding told US military newspaper Stars and Stripes on Sunday.

"The fact that it's the biggest single shipment in 10 years demonstrates our continued commitment to the defence of our allies," Redding added.

According to the paper, it took 415 shipping containers to move the ammunition across the Atlantic.
