India will be sending its frontline Su-30MKI fighter jets and Jaguar attack aircraft to participate in the US ‘Red Flag’ exercise to be held in Alaska next year.

The Indian air force will be sending a 12 aircraft team to the US in April that would include four each of the Su 30 and Jaguar fighters, besides two C 17 tactical lift aircraft and IL 78 mid-air refulers each. "The final plan is in place and 176 personnel from the Indian side will take part.

A special focus will be on carrying out air operations in an environment where troops are also functioning closely on the ground," an official involved in the exercise was quoted as saying by Economic Times News Daily Saturday.
