The Indian Air Force is going to conduct military exercises once again on the eastern border with China.
The Air Force will conduct an exercise at the command level in the Eastern Sector from February 1 to 5.
This is the second Air Force exercise after China’s clash with Indian soldiers in Arunachal Pradesh’s Tawang in December last year.
The exercise named ‘Eastern Sky’ is being conducted after a gap of two years due to the Covid pandemic.
In this exercise, the Air Force will thoroughly test all its components, such as fighter aircraft, helicopters, UAVs and transport aircraft.
Fighters like Sukhoi and Rafale as well as attack helicopter Apache and transport helicopter Chinook will also participate in this exercise.
In this exercise, fighter, transport and helicopters will take off from Hashimara, Kalaikunda in West Bengal, Tezpur, Jhabua in Assam as well as airstrips in Arunachal Pradesh.
This exercise also becomes more important because at present the tension between the army of India and China has increased on the border with China, that is, on the LAC.
Relations between the two countries have not been good for almost three and a half years.
