Growing Aggressive

The Air Warfare Center at Nellis AFB, Nev., had just graduated 35 new “aggressors,” the first crop from its new Aggressor 101 training course. The two-week course provides the baseline for airmen who “play the bad guy in various exercises, reports Lt. Col. Richard Pearcy of the 57th Adversary Tactics Group. The 57th ATG comprises 575 airmen and eight squadrons, covering air, ground, space, and cyber threats, and plans to add two more squadrons next year, making the 57th even more of a “threats central.”
