From June 21 to July 1st, the Turkish Air Force hosted the multi-national exercise Anatolian Eagle 2021 at the Third Main Jet Base, Konya, Turkey. Due to the significance of the exercise and the participants that this exercise normally attracts, MAR decided to attend the media days of Anatolian Eagle 2021 and report on this very interesting exercise.
Anatolian Eagle is carried out every year at the Anatolian Eagle Training Centre in a realistic combat environment to improve the capabilities of national and foreign elements, test new tactics and techniques, develop joint and combined operational procedures, and maximize mission effectiveness by increasing mutual support between forces. With training aids such as the Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation (ACMI) System and the Post-Mission Analysis System, which are used to evaluate the training performance simultaneously or in a very short time, Anatolian Eagle provides an advanced joint training environment to the participating elements to increase their combat readiness level.
