The German Air Force is planning to conduct a joint military exercise with the Indian Air Force (IAF) to achieve interoperability, Luftwaffe chief General Aarne Kreuzinger-Janik has said.

“We are in talks with the Indian Air Force on joint exercises. The IAF chief is visiting Germany in September and I will discuss with him the possibility of holding regular air exercises,” he added.

The proposal is in connection with a defence cooperation framework signed between the two countries in 2006 that includes mutual visits by officers, training exchanges, consultations and cooperation.

The IAF conducts and also participates in regular air exercises with US, French, Russian and Singaporean Air Forces.

Germany is the leading nation in the race for India’s $10.4bn tender for 126 combat aircraft for IAF, according to IANS.
