On Monday, June 3, 2024, the air defence exercise “APHRODITE SHIELD” took place within the framework of the Bilateral Defence Cooperation Program between the Armed Forces of the Republic of Cyprus and the United Kingdom. The said exercise was held with the participation of Air Defence Units of the Air Command and aircraft of the Royal Air Force of the United Kingdom. 

According to the relevant announcement of the National Guard General Staff (GEEF), during the exercise, the air defence system as well as the self-protection system of National Guard’s facilities were activated and its performance in realistic conditions facing modern fighter aircraft was evaluated. 

In addition, the personnel trained in routine weapons control procedures and information transmission as well as in air defence procedures of the Air Defence Center. 

The exercise is considered to be particularly beneficial as it enables Air Command personnel to jointly train with UK Armed Forces Units, thereby promoting interoperability and the exchange of best practice in active and passive air defence.
