Allied and Partners Practice Air Policing Scenarios over Baltic Sea

Ramstein, Germany – Allied and Partner Air Forces will conduct the first iteration of joint Air Policing Drills over the Baltic Sea to enhance Alliance cohesion and interoperability hosted by Latvia, April 20 - 21.

This iteration will include Italy, Germany, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and partners including Finland and Sweden. Exercise Ramstein Alloy 21-1 is aimed to sharpen and hone skills used in Baltic Air Policing (BAP) efforts.

The exercise will cover two days of training practicing real-world scenarios faced by personnel deployed in support of BAP. The scenarios covered will be a slow moving intercept of an AN-2 and civilian communication loss with escort. Focus on other areas such as a simulated crew ejection with activation of the Search and Rescue chain, air-to-air combat training and air-to-air refueling and others will occur in the later iterations.

It is important to consistently drill and practice procedures and coordination processes among Allies and Partners.
