RSAF, Indian Air Force conduct Joint Military Training
The Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) and the Indian Air Force (IAF) have been conducting a Joint Military Training (JMT) since October 14.
The Ministry of Defence said the training at Kalaikunda Air Force Station, India, will end on the December 9.
The RSAF has deployed F16-D+ fighter aircraft, RBS-70 missile system fire units and PSTAR radar to join the IAF's MiG-27, MiG-21 and Hawk MK 132 fighter aircraft for this year's training.
The training is conducted under the Bilateral Agreement between both air forces.
The Agreement signed in 2007 provides for the conduct of joint military training and exercises in India.
Mindef says it's also a valuable opportunity for the two air forces to interact and train together under realistic and challenging conditions.
The training also helps to enhance interoperability and foster closer rapport and understanding amongst the personnel of both air forces.
