Germany seeks to continue Tornado training at Holloman AFB

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress Wednesday of a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Government of Germany for base services for its Tornado aircraft operations, including associated equipment, ammunition, parts, training and logistical support for an estimated cost of $300 million.

The Government of Germany has requested the continuation of base services for the German Air Force Tornado aircraft operations at Holloman Air Force Base (AFB), New Mexico. Base services provided will be for operations and logistics support including training, fuel, munitions, base operating support, and other related operational/logistics requirements.

Holloman AFB is the only location where the German Air Force trains aircrews in Tornado aircraft operations and tactics. These operations began at U.S. Air Force facilities in 1989.

Implementation of this sale will not require the assignment of any additional U.S. government or contractor representatives to Germany.
