Indian Air Force firepower demo

Photo: All photos Angad Singh


The Indian Air Force is carrying out a mammoth firepower demonstration in the Rajasthan desert, aimed at showcasing day/night and all-weather operations. The exercise is called Vayu Shakti 2019 (translating to ‘air power’) and features virtually all IAF aircraft, from upgraded legacy types such as the MiG-21 and MiG-27, to the newest Tejas Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) and Rudra attack helicopter. Our correspondent Angad Singh was there, and brought back these photos.

Look out for more in the forthcoming April issue of AFM.
