Four Typhoon aircraft of the British Royal Air Forces carry out Air Police missions side by side with Romanian MiG-21 LanceR, over May 1 to August 31, contributing to the development of the response capacity and strengthening the deterrence posture as well as to the consolidation of interoperability between Romanian and British military.
