this support channel is to continue to give new milk click the subscribe button thank you we're here at Nellis Air Force Base for the green flag exercise joint operations between the Air Force and Army in this large force on force simulation we have the Brazilians with us flying a twenty nine Super Tucano aircraft with our a-10s so we get exposure to what they do and and get to talk to those guys and see how they do things and their you know their tactics and they in turn get the exposure to us and what we do exchanging this experience with the United States pilots very important for the vision Air Force especially for updating taxes technical and procedures so being here in Green Flag we can know how they work how they train we can see like that kind of experience that their love for their profession we're in different countries but we are all in the same path where we are working together for a better place the biggest impact when we are working jointly with our international partners is the the broad message that we are not in this alone we have global partners behind us that support the same objectives ideals at the end of the day we all want that same for those people that we are out there to support today we're out here at the National Training Center on Fort Irwin in California we're at the 12th combat training squadron which is a part of Green Flag West so a green flag is a air force level exercise where we conduct close air support missions today we went out to execute a mission with the Brazilian JTACs that are here visiting for the exercise we took them out to an ope and we had a couple ATMs overhead and we also had some Brazilian a29 aircraft flying in the airspace working with the Brazilian J Tech's was an awesome experience it's good to see them controlling while they're working with the Brazilian 8:29 s and they did an awesome job together the US Air Force has been a very good benchmark for us being here review guys gives us the opportunity to of course learns a lot but we also can pass things that we do back there in Brazil about your our techniques our tactics this kind of treatment also give us an automatic elevation in our doctrine it's always interesting to see how they're gonna learn and it also goes vice-versa it allows me to take that kind of in my hip pocket and forward as an instructor so it's always good to see that the positive impact that both the Army and the Air Force are having when we bring these exchanges out here to NTC the f-35 lightning ii continues to advance toward combat readiness one milestone for the f-35 is participating in a green flag exercise over the National Training Center at Fort Irwin California for joint terminal attack controllers working with the f-35 brings mixed emotions it's kind of bittersweet seeing some of the other aircraft that will be phased out and then seen the f-35 come in but just working with them this rotation I can tell it they're very capable platform and I think it's going to be a seamless transition day that we are not necessarily talking about the f-35 as something special in green flag is a huge success and I will tell you right now that the f-35 has had huge successes in the exercise we haven't had a single f-35 shot down yet right and they're facing the same contested environment that the other airframes are pilots and ground personnel will continue to put the f-35 through its paces to ensure it's ready when needed technical sergeant Anthony Kuhn for urban National Training Center California
