From defpro.com: Excellent results were achieved after the first operational evaluation made by NATO of a Eurofighter Typhoon Wing. A NATO evaluation team certified the Italian Air Force’s 4th Fighter Wing at the Grosseto Base as a NATO Quick Response Force.
This means that the 4th Wing becomes the first Eurofighter flight unit to obtain this important NATO certification.
The operational evaluation took place during the “Operation Discrete Jury” exercise, which tested the ability of the 4th Wing to be deployed abroad for peace-keeping and peace-making missions. (photo: defpro)
