Fighter jets from nine Allied nations will converge at Ramstein Air Base on June 6, 2024, for the US-led multinational exercise Ramstein 1v1.

This exercise, hosted by United States Air Forces in Europe – Air Forces Africa, aims to enhance interoperability and collective combat readiness among participating nations.

The Ramstein 1v1 exercise will feature both fourth- and fifth-generation fighter aircraft engaging in one-on-one manoeuvre scenarios. These exercises provide an opportunity for pilots to hone and refine their tactics, techniques, and procedures in a competitive setting.

“This exercise will bring together pilots from Allied countries, providing a valuable opportunity to enhance interoperability,” said U.S. Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Michael Loringer, the main planner for Ramstein 1v1. “Exercises like the Ramstein 1-v-1 help promote collaboration and camaraderie, key components of esprit de corps,” he added.

The exercise will include mission scenarios designed to improve the participating nations’ combat readiness and operational capabilities.

NATO’s collective defence framework ensures that the Alliance can respond rapidly to any current or emerging threats. Exercises like Ramstein 1v1 play a crucial role in maintaining the safety of Allied populations.

This sounds suspiciously like a dogfight tournament…
Where do I sign up?

First you need to memorise “Dangerzone.”

It would be interesting to know how many RAF fighters would be taking part. If it’s just a flight(4aircraft?) it’s not much of a work out for RAF capability, but if it was a couple of squadrons or more, of far more value.
