fighters took part in the fighting with Erusea, as a relatively new member state of ISAF
, an alliance of 16 countries.
Though the country's air force could also contribute a few of its newer F-18 Hornets, they mostly sent in the mainstay of their air force, the 29, in order to aid the ISAF air forces operational group.
Some of Wielvakia's notable aces active during the country's aid to ISAF aerial operations
against Erusea included:
Stanislav "Stubby" Nieminen, Edgars "Erne" Hraško, Kristína "Criss-cross" Gribonis, Bystrík "Bullseye" Ilves, Matúš "Coot" Kulmala, Veikko "Venator" Krūmiņš, Jarmila "Vixen" Rebane, Aivars "Chinchilla" Čálik
Yes, those are Slovak MiG-29s. The modern Wielvakian ace pilots serving in ISAF have a mix of Finnish, Estonian, Latvian and Slovak names.
