Athena 2022 - French Helicopter Air to Air Refueling

A U.S. Air Force MC-130J Commando II assigned to the 352d Special Operations Wing performs a helicopter air-to-air refueling with an Armée de l'Air et de l’Espace (French Air and Space Force) EC725 Caracal on May 5, 2022. Both aircraft supported exercise Athena, a French-led joint and combined Special Operation Forces exercise that validates the full spectrum of integrated component and partner capabilities. Training with joint and combined Allies increases lethality and enhances interoperability, allowing our forces to counter military aggression and coercion by sharing responsibilities for common defense.
