US Tanks damaged in Polish railway mishap

Russian news sources RT and Sputnik International have published articles describing a rail accident in Poland that has left several US armored vehicles damaged.  The articles describe ten “tanks” as damaged, although the photos of the incident show Bradley IFVs.  Apparently they hit a metal awning that overhangs the tracks at the station near the city of Torun while being transported from Gdansk to a military range in Zagan.  These vehicles were being transported as part of Operation Atlantic Resolve, a NATO exercise intended to boost the Alliances presence in Eastern Europe.  Below are some photos of the accident.
