As Defense Minister Klaudia Tanner announced during a visit to Vogler Air Base, substantial investments will be made in the next few years in the necessary modernization of the Hörsching site.
After the Saab 105Ö was decommissioned, it became essential to develop Hörsching as a second pillar for the remaining airspace defense next to the Eurofighter base in Zeltweg. According to the Upper Austrian military commanders Brigadier Dieter Muhr, several million euros will be spent on the renovation of the apron and a hangar of the military part of the Linz airport area.
Although the Eurofighters will probably remain stationed in Zeltweg in Styria, operations can also be ensured from Hörsching in the future as part of tactical measures or in the event of any emergency situations. In addition, investments are being made in measures so that the location can be operated independently in the future.
