Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat attended โ€˜Indo-French joint exercise Desert Knight-21โ€™ in Jodhpur on January 21. โ€œThe Indian and French air forces have been holding bilateral exercises since 2002. Today we have witnessed โ€˜Exercise Desert Knight 2021โ€™. The significance of this exercise is that Rafale fighters which have been inducted recently in our Air Force and French Rafale aircrafts along with our (Indian) Su-30s, Mirages have trained together and we have shown that how quickly we have adapted to Rafale fighters,โ€ said General Bipin Rawat. He also added, โ€œWe also flew in a French multirole transport aircraft (Airbus-330) in which they can ferry passengers, do mid-air refuelling and can also convert it into a medical facility too for medical emergencies. We also saw how our Rafales, Su-30s and Mirages were refuelling from it.โ€
