The Fuerza Aérea Argentina (Argentine Air Force, FAA) conducted a major exercise between November 10-14, at Río Gallegos. Despite a bleak budget situation in 2019, the FAA was able to complete an impressive number of exercises, with ‘Soberanía 2019’ rounding off the year and incorporating a very rare event.
Exercise ‘Soberanía 2019’ was a week-long advanced combat training exercise, held at Río Gallegos in the southern Patagonia region of Argentina. It included tactical navigation, air-to-air sorties, ground control co-ordination, plus combined air operations (COMAOs) and night flying. It was also an event that marked some important milestones for the FAA.
