Joint Warrior 2016-1 (Lossiemouth)

    For the first Joint Warrior of 2016 Lossiemouth and some of its based Typhoons, played host to both MPA and fighter aircraft from six NATO counties. The usual attendees were here, those being the MPA's from the US, Canada, France, Norway & Germany. Also present were 57 Rescue Sqn's HH60 Pavehawks's of the USAF normally based at Lakenheath, but by far the most interesting visitors to this Joint Warrior were the Turkish F16 C's & D BLOCK 40's of 181FiLo. At their conception 181FiLo were mainly tasked with attack missions after the arrival of the Block 40 model the aircraft became multi role.  

    Each Joint Warrior operates in much the same way as previous JW exercises however as soon as one exercise finishes plans for the next are being put together with the aim to fulfil each of its participants training needs. This is done by simulating a number of  disputing countries and then follows the dispute as it escalates into military action.

    At sometime or other through the exercise all parties involved will swop and take on the roles of defenders or aggressors. Throughout the exercise other scenarios are implemented which take the form of humanitarian missions, piracy, and counter terrorism.
