With the landing of the US military aircraft C-130 Hercules (Hercules) at Tuzla International Airport, the practical part of the Silver Arrow military exercise began.
Over the next four days, until September 12th, the exercise will be attended by members of the Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Maryland National Guard and the US Air Force in Europe (USAFE) in coordination with the Tuzla International Airport.
The exercise will be for the first time practicing Joint Terminal Air Controllers (JTAC) tactical controllers within the Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Members of the CAF logistics will practice loading and unloading procedures from the C-130 aircraft, which will contribute to the improvement of the CAF capabilities.
During their participation in peacekeeping operations, AFB members often use material and technical resources and equipment from partner countries, which is why it is very important that they be trained in their use. The C-130 Hercules medium transport aircraft is used by the armed forces of 60 countries from around the world.
“The training contributes to maintaining and enhancing partner capabilities and to achieving interoperability with the US Armed Forces, which aims to improve regional security,” said Brigadier Emir Kliko, commander of the 5th Infantry Brigade, and the main host of the exercise.
