New Delhi: The IAF is in the midst of Exercise Livewire, planned to validate the force's operational philosophy as well as to assist the young generation of air warriors in honing their skills in a near-wartime scenario.
The exercise began on October 31 and involves utilisation of air assets of all types available with the Indian Air Force.
Missions flown till date have placed emphasis on joint operations with the Indian Army and Navy, an IAF statement said on Wednesday.
Integrating service elements to provide a better understanding of interoperability forms an important part of training.
In addition to air operations, ground defence is also being practised during the annual exercise.
Updation of security around frontline bases is an ongoing process and this too is being put to test during the exercise, it said.
