As far as the RAF is concerned, Sentry = 8 Squadron, RC-135W = 51 Squadron, Sentinel = 5 Squadron.

The R.A.F. fighter unit has not been disclosed, I suspect it will not be disclosed. From the photos I have seen so far, all squadron markings have been removed from the Typhoons.

The companies that produce squadron patches here in the U.K. usually are quite open about the badges thay produce for deployments and they are usually made available to the public. On this occasion, however, there is nothing - patches may appear some time after the deployment to Red Flag is completed.

The Tornado is being withdrawn from RAF service in the very near future; currently it is still flying operations in the middle east, and probably will be right up to the bitter end.

Putting 2 + 2 together, I would suggest that the unit at Red Flag will be shortly destined for an operational deployment very shortly.....
