Indian Air Force holds massive war exercise along borders with Pakistan

The Indian Air Force (IAF) is actively preparing for a significant training undertaking named 'Trishul,' scheduled to occur along the northern borders of India, where it shares boundaries with China and Pakistan.

Scheduled to run from September 4 to 14, this exercise will notably coincide with the G-20 Summit set to convene in New Delhi on September 9 and 10.

The IAF has outlined its plans to conduct extensive drills across various key regions within the northern sector, encompassing areas such as Ladakh, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, as well as Punjab. A prominent presence of major fighter aircraft fleets, including the Rafale, Mirage 2000, and Su-30MKIs, is expected during the training sessions.

Apart from deploying these versatile fighter jets, the comprehensive exercise will incorporate the participation of heavy-lift transport planes and helicopters, including the notable Chinooks and Apaches. Complementing these efforts, the elite Garud Special Forces unit within the IAF will also play an integral role in the forthcoming drills
