MQ-9 Reaper Remotely Piloted Aircraft, personnel and support equipment with the 52nd Expeditionary Operations Group Detachment 2 at Miroslawiec Air Base, Poland, have temporarily relocated to Campia Turzii Air Base, Romania, while the runway at Miroslawiec undergoes construction.

The detachment is a geographically separated unit assigned to the 52nd Fighter Wing at Spangdahlem AB, Germany, whose mission is to conduct Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance in order to meet combatant commander objectives.

The MQ-9s have been operating out of Poland since May 2018. This temporary relocation is conducted with the full cooperation of our NATO ally, Romania.

The U.S. works closely with Romania and other NATO allies and partners to bolster collective defense capabilities and enhance regional security.
