Stealth Guardian demonstrates rescue, 5th gen integration
TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. —
Two wings, one mission: to execute a locally squadron-planned exercise between the 23d Wing and the 325th Fighter Wing during Exercise Stealth Guardian August 7-11, 2017.
During months of planning between Tyndall and Moody Air Force base, Ga., Exercise Stealth Guardian was conceived and executed by Airmen from both wings to explore Air Force capabilities in modern rescue scenarios to integrate rescue and 5th generation assets in a deployed or contingency environment.
Additionally, the exercise tested the capabilities of Rapid Raptor which is the Air Force’s ability to employ agile combat capabilities of 5th generation platforms like the F-22 to a combat or contingency environment as a moment’s notice.
