ILA 2014: Impressive display by Germany’s armed forces
As the largest individual exhibitor at the ILA 2014 the German armed forces, the Bundeswehr, are presenting their capabilities in a wide-ranging display.
The highlight of the presentation by the Bundeswehr will be the ”Willfire 2014“ flying display featuring four Tornados, two Eurofighters, two Tigers, one CH-53, one Transall and the Airbus A310 MRTT tanker. They will be in the air together for approximately 20 minutes in an impressive display of military cooperation.
On an open air area covering more than 10,000 square metres the Bundeswehr is providing the latest details about the armed forces, together with an extensive display of products. These include five combat aircraft (Eurofighter, Tornados), three other fixed wing aircraft, nine helicopters, a ground-based air defence system (Patriot), four drones (reconnaissance systems used by the army and the joint support service) and a sick bay module.
With a display area measuring more than 1,000 square metres in the so-called “Operations Pavilion“ in Hall 3 the Bundeswehr and military aviation industry are demonstrating how they cooperate successfully to ensure that all Bundeswehr aircraft are kept fully operational at all times.
