Tactical Air Wing 74, celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2021. In addition, the Eurofighter Typhoon had been in service for 15 years, and the unit a full member of the NATO Tiger Organization for five years. Enough reasons to celebrate, and enough reasons to do something special. With support from designer Alexander Hamm, the unit created one of the most exciting color schemes on a German Air Force Eurofighter so far. First and foremost, the Bavarian national colors dominate, with a jubilee coat of arms and a tiger’s head on the vertical stabilizer. Normally, the Typhoons of TaktLwG 74 provide Quick Reaction Alert for the southern region of the Federal Republic of Germany, and also perform missions abroad. In order to strengthen air policing in Baltic airspace, established in 2004, NATO has been using the air base in Ämari, Estonia, west of the capital Tallinn, since 2014 in addition to the base in Siauliai, Lithuania. Germany participates annually on a rotational basis with an operational contingent of up to six aircraft. Eurofighters of the Bavarian Tigers have deployed from their home base in Neuburg to Ämari on four occasions.
