We appreciate our close cooperation with Belgium in the training of fighter aircraft to ensure the security of Europe.

The presence of F-22 aircraft underscores our commitment to the collective defense of the NATO alliance and our willingness to use our most technically advanced assets to deter any potential threats and increase regional security.

The 5th Generation F-22’s unique combination of stealth, speed, agility, and situational awareness, combined with lethal long-range air-to-air and air-to-ground weaponry, makes it the best air dominance fighter in the world.

The F-22’s ability to collect and share tactical information with friendly assets enables U.S. and allied forces to engage targets with unmatched battlespace awareness. The Raptor makes other coalition aircraft more survivable.
