Counter Air Operations – tactical simulated training, 12-16 July 2021, TSC Pardubice, Czech Republic

After a long break caused by circumstances around Covid-19 illness, MATC successfully coordinated another run of a tactical simulated training for tactical pilots and C2/GCIs in the Tactical Simulation Centre (TSC), Pardubice AB, Czech Republic in the term 12-16 July 2021. The training was focused again on the Counter Air Operations (CAO) training in peace, crises and wartime. A multinational training audience was assembled of both rookies and experienced pilots and C2/GCIs from the Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary and Slovakia. The training was exceptionally well-supported by assistance of Subject-Matter Experts (SME) from the Tactical Leadership Programme (TLP) from Albacete, Spain, and the Joint Air Power Competence Centre (JAPCC) from Kalkar, Germany.

The MATC CAO Tactical Simulated Training is a specific training based on NATO standards, which reflects all required training needed for NATINAMDS/QRA pilots and C2/GCIs. The Training contributes significantly to the regional and NATO interoperability. The regional interoperability is enhanced by this kind of training by providing opportunity for pilots and C2/GCIs to train and interact in international environment during cross-border operations. The greatest benefit of this training is secured by the support of TLP and JAPCC specialists, who contribute to both Academic and Practical phase of this training.

MATC plans to run this kind of training, which would be focused on Counter Air OPS (AP, DCA, BVR tactics), again for second half of this year in the TSC Pardubice AB, Czech Republic.
