外文标题：IAF may take part in combat exercise in US
NEW DELHI: Indian fighter pilots are now planning to match their air combat skills with among the best in the world, first against their British counterparts this year and then against American top-guns next year.
IAF pilots are gearing up to fly their Sukhoi-30MKI "air dominance" fighters and IL-78 mid-air refuellers to the UK to take on the Royal Air Force during the "Indra Dhanush" exercise, which is scheduled for July-August.
But the real test of their skills will come if they take part in the world famous "Red Flag" exercise to be held in Alaska in the US in April next year. If the IAF does indeed get all the requisite clearances for the Red Flag exercise, it will be the second time for the force in the high-voltage, "network-centric" exercise.

It was also the first time that the Russian-origin Sukhoi-30MKI fighters had flown over the American mainland.
