The Greek and Indian Air Forces will collaborate on a joint training exercise with Su-30, F-16, and Rafale fighter jets for ten days over Greece and the Mediterranean Sea. The exercise will be conducted as part of the annual Greek exercise Iniochos 23, led by the Greek Air Force and the Greek Air Tactics Center of the Ministry of Defense. The training is scheduled to begin on April 18th and will conclude on April 28th.
About the Iniochos 23 exercise:
- The defense cooperation between India and Greece is strengthening, as both countries aim to improve their joint operational capability. As a part of the annual Greek exercise Iniochos 23, the Indian Air Force will dispatch five Sukhoi-30MKI fighter jets to participate in the training exercises. These fighter jets will perform complex missions alongside the air forces of Greece and the Mediterranean, with the aim of enhancing their operational skills.
- During the joint training exercise between the Indian and Greek Air Forces, Greece will utilize its F-16 and Rafale fighter jets, which are the core of its Air Force, to provide support to the land and sea forces that will be participating in the exercise.
- Iniochos 23 is an annual Greek study. It includes live flying. During these flights, the participating aircraft go through the full range of missions in complex operational and congested environments. These flights include a countermeasure against a ground-based air defense system, through its identification and conditional engagement. Indian and Greek pilots are also expected to jointly attack enemy ground positions accompanied by effective combat search and rescue. For years, this Greek teaching has been one of the most attractive in Europe and the Balkans. All involved are subjected to an intense combat rhythm. It is accompanied by numerous scenarios and tactics in the air and on the ground. Missions are completed in real-time.
