GaganShakti 2018 - Overview of Major Operations Undertaken

Major IAF level exercise Gagan Shakti has started from 11 Apr 18. This year over 1100 aircraft have been deployed at their operational locations. IAF has embarked on one of the Largest PAN INDIA exercise to validate its concept of operations & war waging capability............. The IAF permanent detachments at the Advanced Landing Grounds (ALGs) provide the aircraft with basic infrastructure in terms of refueling, air traffic control, and meteorology data. Nyoma ALG at 13,000 feet has definitely opened a new chapter in our ability to logistically support the land forces deployed in this Sector and deploy reinforcements to maintain a larger force level. ALGs are situated in narrow valleys, with topography being such that runways are necessarily uni-directional.Firepower & Precision: Over the years, the Indian Air Force has made significant efforts to acquire weapons that are more lethal than before and can be delivered from greater ranges with precision. More lethal power delivered with precision signifies that lesser number of weapons, hence aircraft, have to be employed to neutralize the intended target system, in addition to limiting the collateral damage. Standoff firing ranges enhance aircraft safety from the enemy air defence. This is being validated in the ongoing Exercise Gaganshakti.…………….Please Log in or Subscribe to view full details…..
