Does the Greek PA belong to NATO’s reserve nuclear strike force?

These are plans that were activated after Russia’s threats to use tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine

According to Hans Christensen, head of the SIPRI institute for nuclear issues at fas.org (Federation of American Scientists), it is essentially stated that part of the Greek air force and Greece as a whole as an armed force, belongs to the 7 countries that make up the air nuclear strike force of the alliance for missions with nuclear weapons, with our country maintaining a special reserve air force for this purpose.

“The mystery of who is the 7th country in the NATO nuclear exchange mission is now solved, it is Greece. Greece does not host nukes (they withdrew from Araxos in 2001) and does not have an active dedicated unit, but does have a reserve air unit in a contingency role”he says.

On the matter, we do not have any official announcement from the Greek armed forces, and we are waiting for an announcement, for the confirmation or refutation of the expert in question, regarding the participation of our country in possible terror scenarios between the USA and Russia, because that is what it is about.

It is not the first time that Greece will be part of the NATO nuclear strike force

We remind you that during the so-called Cold War, the Greek Air Force had a special squadron of aircraft, which had a secret mission, in the event of a NATO-USSR crisis, to strike through the Black Sea.

The Greek pilots were very often on guard, depending on the wider situation of the two coalitions, while they were often evaluated by American officers, always receiving credit.

In fact, it is said that the Greek pilots were intended for possible missions day and night, while the Turks after a check had been evaluated and would act in every possible scenario only during the day.

In Europe, NATO had committed certain aircraft to special squadrons of the member countries of the alliance equipped with nuclear weapons.

What is happening today between Russia and USA-NATO

The war in Ukraine and the constant movements of American and Tri-branch forces have brought back Cold War-era scenarios in Europe.

Especially after the assumption of the leadership of the Russian forces in Ukraine by the particular Russian Wing Commander Sergei Surovikin with a very “heavy” previous service in Syria, the alliance intensified its plans to deter Russia in Europe, as there is a risk of spreading the war in other directions, while the same is true with China and Taiwan.

The Americans, having plans ready since the 1960s, have probably activated plans even for a possible military conflict with Moscow, sharing specific military roles with European countries.

These are certainly dire scenarios brought to the fore by an even more ferocious war, under the threat of Russia using tactical nuclear weapons after defeats on the battlefield.
