‘Ample Strike’

Náměšť air base in the Czech Republic seems an unlikely place to find Arizona Air National Guard (ANG) F-16s at work. However, with the increasing rounds of deployments to Europe, that’s exactly where the 195th Fighter Squadron from Tucson, Arizona, headed for exercise ‘Ample Strike’. It was the first time in over 30 years that the squadron had sent aircraft to Europe,  on this occasion for a live fire exercise intended to increase proficiency levels for joint terminal attack controllers (JTACs) and to improve standardization and interoperability among NATO partners, as James DeBoer reports in our December issue, which is on sale now.
