MOUNTAIN HOME AIR FORCE BASE, Idaho - German air force AG-51 Tornados land, GAF maintainers prepare aircraft and Republic of Singapore air force crew chiefs perform post-flight checks on their F-15SG Strike Eagle at Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho, Oct. 7, 2013, during exercise Mountain Roundup 2013.

Exercise Mountain Roundup 2013, a multinational combined-joint exercise which is part of the German air force Tornado Fighter Weapons Instructor Course Mission Employment Phase, scheduled to end here, Oct. 16.

The base and the 266th Range Squadron control and maintain emitter sites across almost 7,500-square miles of operational range space, and it's that access to airspace and ranges that allows for realistic, safe training and testing while providing the flexibility to accommodate the complexity of this multinational, multiservice exercise.

More than 300 Germans and Canadians, and an equal number of U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, Army and Air Force are participating in ground operations, close-air support, urban combatives, convoy operations, basic fighter maneuvers, counter air and multiple air-to-air training scenarios.

Mountain Home has hosted the training since 2004 because the base has the right mix of air space, modern ranges and proficient personnel, which creates the perfect location for this type of combined-joint training.
