An Indian Air Force contingent comprising over 100 warriors departed for France on Tuesday to participate in a two-week exercise with the French air force. This ‘Garuda VI’ is being planned at the French Air Force Base, Mont-de-Marsan, the IAF said.
The previous edition of the exercise, ‘Garuda V’, was held in India at the Jodhpur Air Force Station in June 2014. The Indian contingent, which left from the air bases of Agra and Bareilly, comprises 120 air warriors and four Sukhoi 30 MKI, along with an IL-78 flight refuelling aircraft.
