U.S. Strategic Command, in support of U.S. Africa Command, conducted a B-52 interoperability training mission with the Tunisian Air Force in North Africa, Sept. 8.  

The mission included two Tunisian F-5s and two U.S. B-52s, highlighting the militaries’ ability to operate jointly.

 “Our ability to conduct these missions with our African partners enhances our interoperability and collective responsiveness to ensure security and stability prevails within the African continent,” said U.S. Marine Corps Maj. Gen. Bradford Gering, U.S. Africa Command Deputy Director of Operations.

The U.S. military regularly conducts these combined theater security cooperation engagements with international partners.  

These missions enable U.S. and international partners to maintain a high state of readiness, interoperability and proficiency, strengthening the ability of the U.S. and international partners to address mutual security challenges and goals.

“It is a way for our bilateral forces to demonstrate our cooperative resolve against malign actors and in support of regional prosperity” said Gering.
