The training event will also involve the C-27J Spartan of the Lithuanian Air Force, air assets from Poland, Norway, and NATO partner countries – Sweden and Finland. The training aircraft will be mid-air refuelled by a U.S. E-3A aircraft while a British Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) E-3D aircraft will provide additional command and control.

The BRTE XXII is expected to train roughly 20 aircraft from NATO and partner nations, nearly half of them will land at the Lithuanian Air Force Base in Šiauliai.
