Six fighters of the fifth generation are on their way to Poland
The US Air Force sent its F-22 Raptor fighter jets to Poland to support NATO’s air cover mission. This, as reported by the Pentagon publication Stars and Stripes , is stated in the statement of the US Air Force Command in Europe and Africa.
So, six F-22 fighters from the 90th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron in Alaska arrived on the evening of July 26 at Lakenheath Air Base in Great Britain, US Air Force officials said on Wednesday, July 27.
According to the report, these fighters will continue flying to the 32nd tactical air base in the Polish city of Lusk and will complement the mission of deterring Russian aggression on NATO’s eastern flank.
The plan to strengthen defense capabilities in Europe was put forward at the recent NATO summit in Madrid, during which leaders outlined a new security strategy that takes into account the situation created by Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine.
At the same time, as noted in the Polish publication Defense24 , this is the first time in history that F-22 fighters were transferred under the command of NATO to protect the airspace in the European theater of war.
