For first time in 100 years, Luftwaffe in Israel’s skies in largest aerial drill

Way down, down in the Negev Desert (or more accurately, in the skies above it) the countries of Falcon Land and Nowhere Land are waging a vicious aerial war, with dozens of fighter jets dogfighting and bombing each other’s infrastructure. So far there have been no casualties in these air battles - and that’s just how the two sides would like to see it. The Falcon Land-Nowhere Land war is the centerpiece of the Israeli Air Force’s biennial Blue Flag exercise, in which 7 foreign countries are participating and many more are scheduled to visit. The fictional Falcon Land, the so-called “blue team,” is made up of the 7 foreign countries — India, Germany, France, Italy, Poland, Greece and the United States, and IAF squadrons. Their opponent, Nowhere Land, is led by the IAF’s Red Squadron, a unit of F-16 fighter jets that are used in exercises to mimic enemy aircraft. The Red Squadron is joined in Nowhere Land by a surface-to-air missile battery and drone units.

  • The 11-day exercise, which kicked off on Sunday, will include over 1,000 people, five different types of fighter jets, dozens of aircraft and hundreds of sorties in what will be the IAF’s largest aerial exercise to date and the largest in the world in 2017.

    It is Israel’s third time hosting Blue Flag, which began in 2013 and has grown larger each time

  • Thanks for not shooting down our jets when they arrived. ;)

    Jokes aside, I'd be interested in the performance of the F35 within these drills, if it takes part.

  • germany needs to stop selling/giving arms to regimes around the world.

    its against the law to sell countries into "unstable regions" but our politicians couldnt give 2 shits less...saudi arabia...israel...SE asia too...no one cares about "the law" these days anymore.

    WW III as it is orchestrated by the elites can only be stopped via a collective consciousness made possible by the online revolution.

    if enough people wake up to the NWO's schemes we have a real shot o More..

      The simple matter of fact is there is no criminal in prison anywhere around the globe who is worse or even comparable to our politicians.

    • @Zoda Then they would buy from other countries and we would lose a huge part of our arms industry.
      Our own country doesn't buy enough military hardware anymore to make it a profitable business.
      And whining how tolerant you are won't help much, if we should ever need our military.

      But i agree, that they should actually do something about the laws. But out politicians are pathetic cowards after all. So i don't expect much in that regard.

    • @Grumm our engineers are smart enough to produce more tools that help people instead of killing them.

      arms business is a dirty trade and the real profit it creates is from all those rapefugees who come to us now...still want to sell guns to every snackbar in town except to your own population?

    • @Emperor_of_Cats 

      It is still called Luftwaffe today. It was dissolved in 45 and reinstated in 56. Also the 100 years in the title are BS because they flew to Palastine at least till 39.

    • @Emperor_of_Cats 

      bullshit

      A blatant lie, a fragrant untruth, an obvious falicy.

      Or, the excriment of cattle.
      "I smell something...
      Is it dog? No...
      Is it horse? No...
      I know. Its BULLSHIT!"

      Poorly quoted "Only fools and horses"

      Well, the concept is right.
