Jets and Special Forces units worked together to replicate the capture of a leader of a terrorist organization


Anatolia’s Phoenix 2018 military drill, which began on Sunday, hosted by Turkey with the participation of Azerbaijan, the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) and Saudi Arabia will end on Friday.

Anatolia's Phoenix military drill has been hosted by the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) since 2009 at the 3rd Main Jet Base Command in the central Konya province. The exercise tests the common personnel rescue procedures in an operational environment.

The drill runs for a total of 61 hours during the day, and 40 hours in the night. Additionally, combat aircraft conducted 101 sorties.

Drill enacts “neutralizing terror ringleader” scenarioThe most striking scene of the exercise was when helicopters and Special Forces units worked together with jets to replicate the capture of a leader of a terrorist organization.

The scenario stipulated that a terror group leader was neutralized by F-16 jets and ATAK helicopters after receiving intelligence that he would be on the move with cargo transport. Advanced battle control teams, which entered the region earlier, contacted the F-16, and the passage of the terrorist was blocked by striking bridges.

The vehicle was then shot by ATAK helicopters and the F-16s took action to ensure the terrorists could not activate their air defense systems. Once the terrorist was neutralized, Special Forces units took DNA samples from his body to determine his identity.

Anatolia's Phoenix military drill closely followed by almost 50 nations

The military drill reflected the experience Turkey gained in the north of Iraq and Syria. The “terrorist leader hunt” became the exercise of the military drill that received the most attention, and it was closely watched by close to 50 countries. The United States was among the countries following the exercise.
