Swedish Air Force Gripen are participating in Joint Warrior, the largest UK tri-service and multinational exercise of its kind in Europe which gets over on October 20th.
Joint Warrior provides a complex environment in which UK, NATO and allied units can go through training together in tactics and skills for use in a combined joint task force. The exercise runs through a range of scenarios, including crisis and conflict situations, that could be realistically encountered in operations - disputed territory, terrorist activity, piracy and more.
Almost 70 aircraft are being used in the exercise. Participating Gripen fighters have been deployed in all their roles - fighter, attack and reconnaissance.The fighters are stationed at RAF Leeming.
The UK-based exercise, held each year in April and October, has around 5, 700 personnel participating from NATO allies and partner countries, including Sweden, Norway and the USA.
