RAF personnel are taking part in the worlds largest and most complex air combat exercise at Nellis Air Force Base in the United States. Exercise Red Flag is a three-week, 5th Generation exercise that sees friendly Blue Forces compete against hostile Red Force aggressors in live and synthetic training environments, simulating air-to-air, air-to-ground and space and cyber warfare.
The training mirrors the threats and complex air defences posed by real-life adversaries, and helps participating nations better understand each others capabilities.
