Interview: Transport Aircraft for the EFP Mission

Air transport of personnel and equipment is a major factor for the success of the eFP [NATO’s Enhanced Forward Presence] mission in Lithuania. It is the fastest means of transport available to move the soldiers from Germany to their country of deployment and back….

This enables us to use more modern types of landing approaches. We have already used this technology in a number of logistical missions in support of the eFP Battle Group.

Air transport offers a fast and flexible way to support the mission. We are doing our best to deliver medical and military equipment as efficiently as possible. The other key missions of our squadron are ODF in Jordan, MINUSMA [United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali] in the Sahel zone and RSM [Resolute Support Mission] in Afghanistan.
