In another development, the Saudi Royal Air Force is currently participating with F-15 CE fighter jet aircraft and its all air and technical crews at the joint military exercise Desert Flag 2021.
The Indian Air Force (IAF) also said it is participating for the first time in Desert Flag-VI along with the air forces of the UAE, the US, France, Saudi Arabia, South Korea and Bahrain.
Desert Flag-VI is taking place from 3-21 March 2021 at Al Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The exercise is an annual multi-national large force employment warfare exercise hosted by the UAE Air Force.
The aim of the exercise is to provide operational exposure to the participating forces, while training them to undertake simulated air combat operations in a controlled environment.
The participating forces will get an opportunity to enhance their operational capabilities, it said, adding that there will also be a mutual exchange of best practices.
The large-scale exercise involving diverse fighter aircraft from across the globe will provide the participating forces, including the IAF, a unique opportunity to exchange knowledge, experience, enhance operational capabilities and interoperability.
