Allied Air Forces work together in Air Defence drills over Romania
France, Italy, Romania, Spain, Türkiye and the US operated within Romanian Airspace carrying out air maneuvers against simulated adversarial Air Defence systems take downs….
Allied Air Command directed a dynamic training operation between the French MAMBA system supported by Romanian F-16s and US F-15s against the Italian Eurofighters, Spanish F-18s, and Turkish F-16s. These two teams simulated air-to-air drills as well as air-to-ground drills. The fighter aircraft were supported by a Turkish refueling aircraft to extend their flight times and training opportunities. Combined Air Operations Centre at Torrejón and the Romanian Control and Reporting Centre provided the air command and control for the mission.
“Simulated training events like this are key to sharpening our skills in the air as an Alliance,” said Brigadier General Christoph Pliet, Deputy Chief of Staff Operation Allied Air Command. “Having our Air Forces train against each other enables us to enhance our forces to operate against potential adversarial integrated air defence systems to allow friendly forces freedom of maneuver essential to operations under NATO collective defence.”
“Complex training events such as an integrated air defence take down underlines NATO’s ability to focus Allied fires and effects in the same place at the same time as one cohesive Alliance,” added Pliet. “We conduct these training missions to prepare our air forces to operate in a contested environment,” he concluded.
This is what Putin/Erdoghan Friedship is all about. It’s what getting stabbed in the back is about.

Thanks for having the integrity and courage to acknowledge this. Erdogan is one of Putin’s three best friends; the others are Azerbaijan’s Ilham Aliyev and Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu. Xi, Orban, Assad and Vucic follow behind them.
Israel is allowed to bomb Syria – and now Iran – to its heart’s content.
Azerbaijan can attack Russia’s CSTO ally Armenia with no action from Moscow.
Now Turkey is building the flagship for the Ukrainian navy and is donating – free – Bayraktar combat drones to Ukraine of the sort that have murdered people in Nagorno-Karabakh, Libya, Syria, Iraq and Ethiopia to kill Russian servicemen.
And as Putin’s (Turkologist) spokesman Dmitry Peskov puts it: “The spokesman of the Kremlin said that it is known to Russia that Turkey sends “Bayraktar” drones and their ammunition to Ukraine. He added that Turkey has bilateral relations with other countries both as a member of NATO and as an independent state.” https://antibellum679354512.wordpress.com/2023/01/13/peskov-kremlin-okay-with-turkey-selling-drones-to-ukraine-to-kill-russian-soldiers/
