Operation Orion

  • About: The French government is hosting a global exercise.
  • The ongoing confrontation between Russia and Ukraine, in which NATO, led by the US, is obstructing Russian actions against Ukraine, serves as the backdrop for this exercise.
  • The French Army, Navy, and Air Force participated in what is apparently the largest multinational exercise in the country’s history.
  • The Rafale aircraft of the IAF would participate in Exercise Orion for the first time abroad.
  • Many of France’s NATO members as well as other significant allies, including Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Spain, and the United States of America, participate in this.

  • By taking part in international wargames, Indian troops are able to develop their skills and improve communication between their forces and those of other countries.
  • By absorbing the finest practices from other air forces, participation in this exercise would further enhance the employment philosophy of the Indian Air Force.
