The IAF has recently participated in a joint exercise with the Sri Lankan forces.
A transport aircraft of IAF had ferried a contingent of 65 members of IAF personnel on July 9 to Sri Lanka with an aim to carry out joint training. The contingent included a sky diving team along with the Air Warrior Drill Team. While at Colombo, joint para drops were carried out along with Sri Lankan troops.
This exercise offered an opportunity to both the IAF and the SLAF contingent members to observe each others’ Standard Operating Procedures as well as exchange ideas on joint operations. The Air Warrior Drill Team also displayed its immaculate coordinated weapons drill at Colombo. The team would arrive at Trivandrum on July 14 after a very satisfying joint exercise.
