Typhoon aircraft to be used on Romanian-British missions

Four Typhoon aircraft of the British Royal Air Forces on Monday landed at the Mihail Kogalniceanu military base, according to a press statement released by Romania’s Defence Ministry.

“A British detachment made up of nearly 150 troops (pilots and technical staff) will be conducting air policing missions aboard Typhoon aircraft, jointly with MiG-21 and LanceR aircraft and troops of the Romanian Air Force,” the ministry added.

Joint air policing missions are designed to develop response and deterrence capabilities, as well as to consolidate interoperability between Romanian and British armed forces, according to the ministry.
