The year 2022 belongs to the flight readiness of the Federal Ministry of Defense (BMVg)to the years with the most significant changes in their history.
The birth and commissioning of the "Flight Readiness BMVg" took place on April 1, 1957. It all began back then with a small four-engine commercial aircraft, a de Havilland DH.114 Heron. In the years that followed, aircraft from the US aircraft manufacturers Douglas Aircraft Company, Convair, Lockheed Corporation, Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation and Boeing Airplane Company initially shaped the appearance of the air readiness service. After German reunification, aircraft such as the Tupolev Tu-154 were briefly taken over by the air force of the GDR's National People's Army in 1990/1991. In addition, three Airbus A310s were purchased from the stock of the state-owned airline of the German Democratic Republic. Two of these were converted into VIP machines with the military identification numbers 10+21 and 10+22 for use in political and parliamentary flight operations.

A quantum leap in electronic warfareThe rapidly evolving threats on the electronic battlefield pose major challenges for today's air forces. Air Forces must be trained to deal with these threats and successfully achieve their objectives in the face of growing threats. Therefore, an upgrade of the training areas is necessary to present the pilots with a realistic environment that replicates modern air defense systems in order to optimize the effectiveness of the training. For this purpose, the company ELTA Systems Ltd. (ELTA) leveraged its five decades of technological heritage and culture of innovation to bring Scorpius-T (ELL-8257SB) to market.
