A MK-82 bomb explodes at a range on Adazi Military Base, Latvia, during the Saber Strike 18 exercise, after being dropped from an F-16 Fighting Falcon Aircraft from the 120th Fighter Squadron, Colorado Air National Guard, June 15, 2018. The purpose was to train pilots and crews, as well as Joint Terminal Air Controllers for close air support missions that they may face in real world conditions. Saber Strike 18 is the eighth iteration of the long-standing U.S. Army Europe-led cooperative training exercise designed to enhance interoperability among allies and regional partners. This year's exercise will take place June 3-15, focusing on improving land and air operational capabilities with an additional key objective to train with NATO's enhanced Forward Presence (eFP) battlegroups.(U.S. Air National Guard photo by Senior Master Sgt.
