U.S. Air Force to invest 40 million USD in Romanian air base

The U.S. Air Force plans to spend about 40 million USD on new construction and base improvements at the 71st Air Base in Campia Turzii, in Romania's Cluj county, Defensenews.com reported.

The U.S. and Romanian air forces train together at the base in Campia Turzii, with the U.S. Air Force temporarily stationing F-15 and A-10 aircraft here to increase training and cooperation with the Romanian side, according to Romania Insider. However, the Defense Department doesn't maintain a permanent base at Campia Turzii.
The 40 million USD construction bill includes items from fiscal years 2015-2019 and would be paid with Defense Department funds specially designated to deter Russian aggression, according to Defensenews.com. Most of the money, namely 25 million USD, will be spent on infrastructure to directly enable mission planning and flight operations.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Air Force has already spent almost 6 million USD to repaint, repair and reseal one runway, as well as to build a new hangar that could be used to house drones like the MQ-9 Reaper.
However, the U.S. Air Forces are planning more changes. For example, a section of the Campia Turzii air base currently housing a number of aircraft shelters and a maintenance apron will be massively expanded by the end of next summer. A hangar capable of fitting an F-15 or A-10 and an extended aircraft ramp that can enable 12 F-15s to be parked outside are to be added to the site. Also, the U.S. Air Force plans to build a new squadron operation facility for 3.4 million USD with briefing rooms and offices for medical and life-support personnel.
