FIRST PHOTOS: Rafales, Flankers, Floggers, Gun Up At #Garuda5
Frop top: Two of the four French Rafales, an IAF Su-30 MKI, an IAF MiG-27, IAF C-17 Globemaster III and an upgraded IAF An-32. These beauties, courtesy of the DPR Defence directorate, just arrived from Jodhpur of the ARMÉE DE L’AIR Rafales and IAF airplanes taking off to begin Garuda-5 over the Thar Desert. 10 days of mixed fights, surgical strikes with an IAF Phalcon AWACS in airspace. Lots more from the exercise venue over the next few hours and days here on Livefist.
