A Royal Australian Air Force E-7A Wedgetail Airborne Early Warning and Control aircraft has deployed to the Middle East as part of US-led operations.

The aircraft will operate in support of Iraqi Security Forces counter-terrorism efforts in Iraq, alongside Australian KC-30A Multi-Role Tanker Transport aircraft, currently providing air-to-air refuelling capability to a variety of coalition aircraft supporting operations in Iraq and Syria as part of the Australian Defence Force’s Operation OKRA.

The E-7A Wedgetail is an airborne early warning and control platform that can gather information from a wide variety of sources, analyse it and communicate this information to friendly air and surface assets.
