To step up NATO Air Policing Operations, German Typhoons Have Arrived in Romania

At an eastern Romanian military air base, four Eurofighter jets from the German Air Force have arrived to provide support for air surveillance as part of the enhanced NATO Air Policing South mission. The deployment, consisting of approximately 150 personnel, is a joint effort to respond to the changing security dynamics in the region, particularly along the Romania-Ukraine border. 


The Eurofighter Typhoon is a highly maneuverable multirole fighter aircraft renowned for its advanced avionics and air-to-air and air-to-surface capabilities. Its design emphasizes stealth, maneuverability, and cutting-edge sensors, ensuring superior situational awareness and combat effectiveness in modern air warfare. 


Operational duties for the Eurofighter jets stationed at the Mihail Kogalniceanu air base near Constanta, Romania, are scheduled to begin on November 27, 2023, strengthening NATO’s air defense capabilities on its southeastern flank. The move not only underscores Germany's commitment to its NATO ally Romania but also its strategic positioning in response to recent security challenges, such as the detection of drone remnants near the Romania-Ukraine border that resemble those used by Russia in its attacks on Ukraine. 


The discovery of numerous drone fragments has prompted increased efforts to safeguard civilians, including the deployment of anti-aircraft units, the construction of air-raid shelters, and the issuing of emergency alerts to citizens in proximity to the border. The United States has also contributed to NATO's southeast flank security by deploying four F-16 multirole fighters to Romania on September 22, 2023, reinforcing the alliance's commitment to securing the airspace and addressing potential threats.
