Between May 14 and 25, the 2018 meeting of the “tigers” of NATO took place, an event that regularly gathers fighter squads of the member countries of the Atlantic Alliance.
This year’s meeting was held at the Poznań-Krzesiny air base in Poland, which houses the 23 F-16C (single-seater) and 9 F-16D (two-seater) of the 3rd and 6th Polish Air Force Tactical Squadrons. The Spanish Air Force was represented by 5 Eurofighter Typhoon fighters of the 142 Squadron, based in Los Llanos (Albacete). The Polish Youtube channel Polska Zbrojna has published an excellent video with images of this Tiger Meet 2018. In some of them we see the Spanish Typhoons flying next to a Typhoon of the 74th Tactical Wing of the German Luftwaffe and also accompanying MiG-29 of the 1st Air Tactical Squadron of the Polish Air Force. All this with the unforgettable song “Danger Zone” by Kenny Loggins, appeared in “Top Gun”.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has prompted two traditionally neutral Nordic countries to urgently seek NATO membership to protect themselves from Russia.
Today marks 12 weeks since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Within the abundant military losses, there is a fact that draws a lot of attention.
The P-51 Mustang is one of the most famous fighters of World War II, and also one of the best of those years.
During World War II, the USSR was known for using its troops as mere cannon fodder, sending them to the front even without weapons.
Last weekend, the Port of Vigo received the visit of an unusual visitor for these things: the Naval Service of the Republic of Ireland.
On the occasion of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the usefulness of tanks in modern conventional warfare is being debated again.
The military material delivered by other countries to Ukraine continues to arrive in that country to contribute to its defense against the Russian invasion.
