Indian Air Force’s (IAF) four Su-30MKI Flanker fighters are ‘dogfighting’ against Royal Air Force Typhoon FGR4 Fighter in a major airpower training exercise in the skies above Britain.
The IAF has flown their Russian built Flanker jet fighters for exercise ‘Indradanush’, along with transport and tanker aircraft, across three continents, the Royal Air Force announced Monday.
The IAF transport aircraft, a C-17 and C-130J, and Il-78 air-refuelling tanker are training with their RAF counterparts at RAF Brize Norton.
Designed to reinforce the strategic relationship and enhance the mutual operational understanding between the two air forces, pilots and ground forces from both nations are participating in a series of increasingly complex training scenarios.
The Group Captain Astiu said “Every Air Force has got some plusses and some minuses. We are here to take plusses from the Royal Air Force and we expect they will take a lot of plusses from our side.
The ground element of the exercise is centred on RAF Honington where IAF Garud Commandos are working with their RAF Regiment counterparts including a series of parachute jumps from both nations’ Hercules tactical transport aircraft.
The two week exercise concludes 31 July.
