British jets go up ‘against’ Greek fighters

Typhoon jets currently deployed in Romania recently participated in ‘Dissimilar Air Combat Training’ with the Greek air force.

The Royal Air Force say here that the training, which took place over Romania, saw two RAF Typhoons undertake Dissimilar Air Combat Training with two Hellenic Air Force F-16s, supported by a Voyager tanker from 903 Expeditionary Air Wing based out of RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus.

“This type of training improves interoperability and provides an opportunity for pilots on both sides to test the capabilities of their respective platforms.”

“Training with the Hellenic Air Force and their F-16 aircraft has provided 3(F)Sqn with some fantastic opportunities to once again explore the capabilities of Typhoon alongside our NATO partners. This flight brings an end to the multinational exercises conducted during Op BILOXI 22. The training we’ve undertaken has been invaluable in ensuring the Pilots, Ground Crew and Aerospace Battle Managers gain the experience required to maintain Operational Capability.”

The Royal Air Force adds that “over the course of the 4-month deployment to Romania, alongside carrying out the NATO enhanced Air Policing and enhanced Vigilance Activity missions, the Typhoons from 3(F) Squadron have conducted several bilateral training serials with multiple NATO nations”.
