    New Delhi, Feb 7, IRNA -- The Indian Air Force (IAF) has deferred its biggest ever wargame codenamed 'Operation Livewire' --which was scheduled to begin later next month – after realising that the force needed to integrate its new acquisitions into the service before holding the exercise.

    The IAF was planning to deploy all its frontline aircraft, including the Su-30MKI, Jaguar, Mirage 2000 and the AWACs, at the exercise earlier planned be held between March 24 and April 15.

    'The exercise was deferred after we realised that we needed to integrate our new assets with the existing sensors and systems,' pti reported quoting IAF officials as said here, adding new dates and schedule for holding the exercise has not been decided yet.

    As per IAF's plans, the exercise would have involved the assets of IAF's main operational formations including the Delhi-based Western Command and Gandhinagar-based South Western Command.

    During the wargame, the IAF would have practised fighting both conventional and non-conventional warfare which would have included manoeuvres to carry out surgical strikes.

    The IAF had recently carried out Exercise MahaGujRaj with the Army over the western desert.

    Perhaps now we can have a proper NCW air exercise, like Red Flag.

    Yes. Network Centric Warfare.

    It took us a year to get it working for exercises. Not bad.

    Actually we don't know anything about it in public. It is possible that this is it. The Israeli made ODL(Operational Data Link) was supposed to be built and operational by 2012. This is 2012, so we can assume everything's in order or that we are nearly there.

    We aren't developing our own bus but our own data link.
