IAF’s Sukhoi Su-30 MKI to go Against France’s Rafale Jets During Garuda VI Exercise In July


The Indian Air Force and Armée de l’Air (French Air Force) is set to lock horns in the bilateral air exercise Garuda VI, scheduled to be held at an air base in France. The exercise will see the most potent fighter aircraft of the two countries going head-to-head to validate the latest defence strategies and fine-tune their waging capabilities.

The IAF’s frontline fighter Sukhoi Su-30 MKI will take on the Rafale multirole jets of the French Air Force. The exercise will also give a chance to the Air Force to assess the capabilities of their aircraft against the Rafale jets which will join the Indian forces in the next few months.

Reports suggest that the Indian Air Force will deploy 10 Su-30 MKIs, Ilyushin IL-76 Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) plane and Il-78 aerial refuelling tanker during the two-week-long Garuda VI exercise. Read more
