This week, the Indian Air Force will conduct a combined training exercise in the eastern sector to assess the preparedness of their aircraft.
The training exercise has reportedly been planned out well in advance, according to IAF sources.
“Indian Air Force is scheduled to carry out a consolidated training exercise this week in the eastern sector where the readiness of the aircraft would be checked. The training exercise has been planned much in advance,” the sources said.
Defense sources had earlier claimed that Chinese drones had moved very aggressively toward Indian positions on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Arunachal Pradesh prior to the most recent clash between India and China in the Yangtse region close to Tawang, forcing the Indian Air Force to scramble its fighter aircraft stationed in the area.
