A U.S. Air Force MC-130J Commando II refuels an F-16 Fighting Falcon with its engines on during a forward area refueling point training event at Misawa Air Base, Japan, June 25, 2020. Without FARP capabilities, U.S. Air Force aircraft are limited to air-to-air refueling and permanently-installed bases for their refueling needs. However, when a fighter squadron has FARP support, options are vastly increased, as any accessible airfield or island can be used to replenish fighters and send them back to the fight.
