- The Indian Air Force is holding multiple wargames and trying to improve the image of the Indian military around the world.
- Indian Special Forces troops are also stationed in mountain peaks and the Eastern Ladakh sector to support fighter planes and combat helicopter operations.
In the middle of an ongoing military standoff with China, the Special Forces of the US and India are doing wargames with the goal of helping fighter aircraft activities in forward areas.
The wargames are being done at training centers for Special Forces that are close to here.
Sources say that the operations were likely meant to help the fighter planes do their jobs. For example, they may have used lasers to mark targets in front-line areas so that the precision-guided bombs could hit their intended targets with accuracy.
Sources say that the troops from both countries are expected to join up with a larger group, including their fighter and transport aircraft, at Kalaikunda, which is codenamed Ex CopeIndia.
The US Air Force plans to bring in F-15 Strike Eagle fighter jets, but there may be some changes to the schedule of the drill, which was supposed to begin on April 10.
The war games are happening at a time when Indian troops have been in a military standoff for the last three years.
The Indian Air Force is holding multiple wargames and trying to improve the image of the Indian military around the world. It has recently held exercises in the UK and the UAE with global powers.
It will also send its most powerful Rafale fighter jets to France for the multinational exercise Orion, and it will also send fighter jets from a frontline command to Greece for another wargame.
Along with the ground troops, the IAF has been the country’s strongest arm in the fight with China. This is because they have been sent to forward areas very close to the border many times.
Indian Special Forces troops are also stationed in mountain peaks and the Eastern Ladakh sector to support fighter planes and combat helicopter operations.
