Looking for information
« on: November 30, 2007, 04:42:35 AM »

While the Singaporean air force has brought a squadron of US-made F-15 fighters, the Indian Air Force is fielding its Russian-built Mig-27 ground attack fighters in the war games named 'Sindex', which will go on till December 13, according to IAF sources here.

This is the fifth series of air exercises between the two countries, with Singapore and India recently

The RSAF is paying for use of Indian facilities and airspace for the training exercises. In the first series of exercises held in Gwalior in 2004, RSAF fielded its F-16 Fighting Falcons and IAF matched them with its own Sukhoi-30 and Mirage 2000 fighters

Must be a mistake/typo, Singapore doesn't have the F-15 yet, right?

I knew this, but the agreement where RSAF pays to use the Indian base for its own training is fairly new, the cooperative exercises are something else though and should not be confused with Singapore's own training exercises from Indian soil... Singapore taking part in Red Flag is something else than Singapore pilot training at Tucson.

I'll consider making a (sub-) board for exercises.
