Close to the assigned fleet
Thursday 20 September - 13:00h | News & Press updates
Major General Pascal Valentin conducted his first visit to a transport wing in order to get an impression on the capabilities of the German Air Force Special Air Mission Wing.
For the EATC the assigned aircrafts are of special importance: Beside the “wide fleet”, which remains on national command and is focused on strategic- and VIP-transportation, the EATC uses the assigned “grey fleet” with one Airbus A310 PAX and four A310 MRTT. While the first Airbus A310 PAX flies twice a week to Usbekistan in order to transport troops to and from ISAF, the four MRTT are flexible in use for AT-, AAR- and AE-missions: By implementing a specific equipment the versatile MRTT-concept allows it to execute different missions on short notice.
