F- 16 Fighting Falcon supports new offensive campaign in Afghanistan
An F-16 fighting falcon assigned to the 77th Fighter Squadron, takes off Nov. 21, 2017 at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan. The launch was used in support of a new offensive campaign. Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) and United States Forces-Afghanistan (USFOR-A) launched a series of ongoing attacks to hit the Taliban where they are most vulnerable: their revenue streams. Together, Afghan and U.S. forces conducted combined operations to strike drug labs and command-and-control nodes in northern Helmand province. These types of strikes represent the highest level of trust and cooperation between ANDSF and USFOR-A. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Divine Cox)
