With the start of the new year, Germany will have its Eurofighter force ready to support the NATO Response Force if the capability is called on during a crisis. The operational readiness was validated during a NATO exercise last month, the German air force says.The fighter wing JG74 began preparing for NRF more than a year ago, which will see the unit ready to contribute with 300 personnel and six aircraft on standby (four would likely be deployed) to support the alliance’s rapid response mission. The goal is to be able to deploy the detachment anywhere in the world within ten days. The alert phase will last a full year; previous NRF rotations lasted merely six months.
