E-7A Wedgetail’s contribution to OP OKRA


08/31/2015: The Australian Air Task Group E-7A Wedgetail aircraft and personnel deliver airborne early warning and control support to Coalition aircraft operating in Iraq and Syria as part of the US-led Coalition air campaign.

The single goal of the air campaign is to disrupt and degrade Da’esh’s operations, while the Building Partner Capacity initiative continues to deliver critical training to the Iraqi Security Forces empowering them to fight the Da’esh and reclaim their country.

The Wedgetail’s role is vital in maintaining communications with coalition aircraft operating within the battlespace.
