--Special feature: [Flight Guidance Group (Squadron) `Aggressor` 40th Anniversary]
――The special feature of this issue is the flight guidance group `Aggressor`, a virtual enemy training unit of the Japan Air Self-Defense Force, which celebrated its 40th anniversary at the end of December. From the lessons of the Vietnam War, in the actual aerial warfare training with virtual enemies adopted by the US Navy and Air Force, the unit commonly known as `aggressor` (invaders) is in charge of the virtual enemy role.
--They are a group of top-notch skilled pilots who study the `techniques` such as the tactics of the potential enemy and launch attacks.
--The Japan Air Self-Defense Force created a virtual history unit [Tactical Fighter Training Corps (later promoted to [Group])] on December 17, 1981, 40 years ago, following the US Air Force.
――Since then, we have been conducting intense guidance and training against air defense fighter units located in various parts of Japan.
-The pilots of the flight instruction group are also elite people selected from the combat units in each region, and it is also popular because each aircraft uses a different camouflage F-15.
――In this issue, we will cover the Komatsu base, which is the home of the flight instruction group, and report on the current situation.
――As a special feature related project, we will also develop a limited sale of the original cloth emblem and the same T-shirt in the magazine.
--Other notable articles are <Special Feature Articles> World Aggressor Corps, US-Japan Joint Training Resolution Dragon, Return of British Aircraft Carrier Queen Elizabeth who also stopped in Japan, to children by US military Yokota Air Base transport aircraft Christmas Drop Operation, serialization, aviators who visited Japan during the big flight era, etc.
