The Indian Air Force (IAF) is set to commence a 10-day exercise on Monday to test its capabilities and preparedness for high-intensity operations.

During the exercise, known as ‘Gagan Shakti-2024,’ the IAF will mobilize all its bases and assets across the country.

According to an official statement, the Indian Army will provide logistics support for the mega exercise, facilitating a comprehensive pan-India movement of approximately 10,000 IAF personnel and ammunition in order to validate the Operational Rail Mobilisation Plan (ORMP) aspects of the IAF.

The exercise is being conducted at various locations across the country, including the Pokhran Field Firing Range in Jaisalmer.

It was last held in 2018, during which the IAF completed over 11,000 sorties during the two-phase air manoeuvres.
