    Building readiness: Romanian base gets an overhaul to strengthen NATO forces

    CINCU, Romania — Some major improvements are underway at the Joint National Training Center in Romania that are designed to ultimately strengthen capability across NATO forces, and it’s being made possible largely by U.S. funding through the European Reassurance Initiative.

    Roughly $23 million in funding — provided through the account designed to bolster initiatives to reassure European allies and deter an aggressive and unpredictable Russia — is going toward the construction of a massive nonstandard live-fire range for tanks, a sniper range, a light demolition range and ammunition storage among a few other infrastructure efforts.

    Romania receives additional F-16 fighters


    According to the aviation resource Scramble.nl , on August 14, 2020, the first two of the five additionally purchased for the Romanian Air Force from the presence of the modernized Lockheed Martin F-16AM Fighting Falcon fighter in Portugal arrived at the Borcea-Fetesti airfield in Romania. Aircraft with Romanian side numbers " 1614" (formerly Portuguese number "15132") and "1616" (formerly Portuguese number "15135") made an independent flight from the Portuguese airbase Monte Real. The Lockheed Martin F-16AM Fighting Falcon of the Romanian Air Force (Romanian side number " 1614", former Portuguese number "15132", former US Air Force number 83-1080), which arrived in Romania, purchased from Portugal from stock .

    A contract worth 130 million euros for the purchase by Romania of five F-16AM fighters (previously upgraded under the MLU program) from the Portuguese Air Force under the US-supported Peace Carpathian II program was signed on January 27, 2020, the price of the contract includes the repair and refinement of aircraft by the Portuguese Air Force during participation of the Portuguese aircraft repair company OGMA-Indústria Aeronáutica de Portugal. After receiving the first two on August 14, two more aircraft are expected to be handed over to Romania in October 2020, and one in early 2021. Their Romanian side numbers are "1613", "1615" and "1617" (formerly Portuguese FAP 15122, 15134 and 15141).

    The aircraft will join the 53rd Fighter Squadron of the 86th Locotenent Aviator Gheorghe Mociorniţă Air Force Base of the Romanian Air Force at the Borcea Fetesti airfield. This squadron already includes 12 F-16AM / VM fighters, purchased in a similar manner in Portugal under an agreement in 2013 and received in 2016-2017 (Romanian side numbers from "1601" to "1612"). Thus, by the beginning of 2021, Romania will have 17 F-16AM / VM fighters in service - 14 single-seat F-16AM and three double-seat F-16ВМ.
