USAF Special Tactics trains to lead, build partnership in Jordan | U.S. Air Force 

Explosions reverberate throughout the city, and rapid gunfire echoes off the stucco buildings as a joint nation special operations force fast-ropes onto a three-story building to infiltrate the hostile city.

Air Force Special Tactics teams, Jordanian Armed Forces Special Task Force and Italy’s 17th Stormo Incursori special operations forces secure each building in the compound — searching for a missing U.S. service member and rendering aid to casualties along the way.

This wasn’t a real-world mission; it was personnel recovery training at Eager Lion 2017, an annual U.S. Central Command exercise in Jordan designed to strengthen military-to-military relationships between the U.S., Jordan and more than 20 different international partners.
