Anatolian Eagle History

 

It was recognised in the early 1980s that having advanced weaponry necessitated having advanced training, to this purpose a high technology battle system has been created, taking advantage of the huge airspace available it has been possible to simulate close to reality war situations at all levels of combat, the electronic battlefield allows full analysis of the missions flown and in depth realisation of tactics employed. The aim is to test the knowledge and abilities of all participants, raising the level of the training by detecting difficulties and deficiencies.
