The theme of this year’s AFCC is ‘IAF in the Next Decade’.
Senior air force commanders over the course of the three day conference will review the current operational scenario and deployments before deliberating on building the IAF capabilities in the next decade to tackle all emerging threats.
IAF Squadrons are currently in a high state of readiness on the country’s borders and the Defence Minister commended the IAF on rapid deployment of its assets at forward locations in response to the prevailing situation in Eastern Ladakh.
