New Delhi: The Indian Air Force (IAF) is set to conduct its first-ever multinational exercise, Tarang Shakti 2024, scheduled to take place in the skies over Jodhpur, Rajasthan, in August this year.

This groundbreaking event will see participation from some of the world’s most advanced air forces marking a significant milestone in India-Germany defence cooperation.

Tarang Shakti 2024 will feature air assets from 12 countries, with six nations actively participating with their frontline fighter aircraft, transport aircraft, and mid-air refuellers.

The remaining six will join as observers. Notably, the exercise is likely to include forces from the Quad nations—Australia, Japan, and the United States—along with France and the United Kingdom in addition to Germany.

The exercise aims to foster professional interactions, enrich the employment philosophy of the participating forces, and facilitate the exchange of valuable insights. It represents a unique opportunity for these nations to collaborate and enhance their tactical and operational capabilities.
