The U.S. Air Force F-15E Attack Eagles fighter jets took part in maritime and surface warfare training in Arabian Gulf.
Based on a statement released by the U.S. Air Forces Central Command, Strike Eagles connected to the 336th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron took part in an air activity in maritime surface warfare integration training with the U.S. Naval Forces Central Command USS Gonzalez and a P-3 Orion in the Arabian Gulf.
The F-15E Strike Eagle is a dual-purpose fighter designed to perform air-to-air and air-to-ground operations. An array of avionics and electronics systems provides the F-15E the capability to struggle at low heights, day or night and in all weather.
The F-15Es are based out of Al Dhafra Air Base, UAE, while the U.S.Gonzalez is assigned to Commander Task Force-55 and the P-3C Orion is attached to the CTF-57 based out of Bahrain.
“The P-3C provides maritime area awareness, can also work as a maritime air controller with long loiter times or make use of its weapons as required,” Willing stated. “The united states Gonzalez is functioning in the Arabian Gulf to ensure international freedom of navigation.”
While the situations were simulated, the team followed real-world tactics, techniques, and procedures to execute joint interoperability in maritime air control and dynamic targeting.
The demonstration of flexible and adaptable joint operations reveals U.S. military forces are even stronger together and set to respond to emergencies and defend the U.S. forces and interests in the domain.
“This exercise demonstrated our capability to perform operations in multiple domains concurrently,” Davidson said. “When built-in properly, the combined power of these assets is more significant than their total. We multiply the results by creating more and more complex difficulties in the malign activities of our adversaries.
