IAF to participate in tactical leadership programme in Egypt

The Indian Air Force said it is participating in a month-long tactical leadership programme in Egypt with three Su-30 MKI jets and two C-17 transport aircraft.

It said the exercise provides a unique opportunity to showcase the reach and capability of the IAF against the backdrop of the current geopolitical scenario.

It is a unique exercise with air assets in a large force engagement environment, simulating various conflict scenarios. The exercise is aimed at enhancing defence cooperation between the two countries and exchange of best practices.

The IAF said the programme will also provide an opportunity to showcase the Su-30 MKI manufactured in India and the country’s expertise for deeper indigenisation of spares and components.
