India and the US conduct wargames, focusing on fighter aircraft operations in the midst of the standoff with China.


The war games are taking place as Indian forces have been locked in a three-year military standstill.

The US and Indian Special Forces are participating in wargames with an emphasis on assisting fighter aircraft operations in advanced regions amid a continuing military stalemate with China.

According to defence officials quoted by ANI, the wargames are taking place at Special Forces training facilities nearby.

According to the sources, the actions were likely centred on aiding the fighter aircraft operations, including laser-designating targets in frontline areas so that precision-guided bombs could hit their targets precisely.

According to the reports, the troops from both nations are likely to join the bigger contingent of both sides at Kalaikunda, known as Ex CopeIndia, which also includes their fighter and transport planes.

Although F-15 Strike Eagle fighter planes from the US Air Force are slated to arrive, the drill’s original start date of April 10 may change.

As it recently undertook exercises in the UK and the UAE with global powers, the Indian Air Force is conducting several wargames and striving to improve the reputation of the Indian military internationally.

It will also travel to France with its most powerful Rafale fighter jets for the multinational exercise Orion and will also participate in a wargame in Greece with fighter jets from a frontline command.

In the confrontation with China, the IAF has been the nation’s strongest arm alongside the ground forces because to several deployments in forward locations extremely near to the border.

Along with the Eastern Ladakh sector, the Indian Special Forces men are stationed on high mountain peaks to support operations involving combat helicopters and fighter planes.
