Training with NATO allies such as the UK and France improves interoperability and demonstrates the United States’ commitment to regional security. Point Blank also represents an opportunity to enhance interoperability and integration between allied fourth and fifth-generation fighter aircraft.

KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft assigned to the 100th Air Refueling Wing, RAF Mildenhall, England, and a U.K. Voyager from RAF Brize Norton will provide aerial refueling support. A variety of other U.S. and RAF aircraft based in the UK also support the exercise.
