Unit History: RAF Decimomannu
Decimomannu air base is the home of the Air Combat Manoeuvring Instrumentation (ACMI) range, called the "Air Weapons Training Installation" (AWTI) by the Italian hosts, currently operating in Europe.
Established in 1960 by the NATO partnership of Italy, Germany, Great Britain and Canada, the ACMI range complex includes computer monitored airspace for the practice of dissimilar air combact training (DACT) and manned, scorable bombing range (Frasca Range).
During 1970 Canada was replaced as a partner by the USA and Royal Air Force, this last one is retired on 1998.
The airbase is situated at North North West from Cagliari, it is placed between Decimomannu, Decimoputzu San Sperate and Villasor villages.
Actually, Italian Air Force and German Air Force are the main air forces in Deci, but several visitors organize their deployments during the year.
