I would not say that IAF was "basking in its glory" rather the IAF stuck to it's ROE's and pre devised plans which were put in place to meet such contingencies.
Wahi to!.. With such woeful lack of aggression against people like the Pakis you're just handing them over the narrative victory and this bombing was a narrative battle, including its aftermath. Today their "tea was fantastic" is like our "93000 at 1971"... and they themselves were shitting on PAF on 26th after IAF hit target 100km inside Pak.

Forget laying trap with SAMs & having fighters ready for CAP, I was stunned by the fact that Abhinandan did not launch both his R-77 before engaging in WVR despite it starting as BVR engagement. Later I found out that they were indecisively given repeated contradicting instructions to go hot & cold.

And then we fucking descalated! THEY SENT BOMBS AT OUR ARMY COMMAND, AND WE BUTTFUCKING DESCALATED!!!

Today their "tea was fantastic" is like our "93000 at 1971" & that nullified IAF hitting target 100km inside Pak. They themselves were tearing hairs & shitting on PAF on 26th only.

INDUCTION CEREMONY OF RAFALE AIRCRAFT INTO 101 SQN ON28 JUL 21






The Indian Air Force formally inducted Rafale aircraft into No. 101 Squadron at Air Force Station Hasimara in Eastern Air Command (EAC) on 28 Jul 21. Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria PVSM AVSM VM ADC, Chief of the Air Staff presided over the induction ceremony. On arrival, CAS was received by Air Marshal Amit Dev AVSM VSM, Air Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Eastern Air Command. The event also included a fly-past heralding the arrival of Rafale aircraft to Hasimara followed by a traditional water cannon salute.


Addressing the personnel during the induction ceremony, CAS said that the induction of Rafale had been carefully planned at Hasimara; keeping in mind the importance of strengthening IAF's capability in the Eastern Sector. Recalling the glorious history of 101 Squadron which bestowed upon them the title of 'Falcons of Chamb and Akhnoor', CAS urged the personnel to combine their zeal and commitment with the unmatched potential of the newly inducted platform. He said that he had no doubt that the Squadron would dominate whenever and wherever required and ensure that the adversary would always be intimidated by their sheer presence.


101 Squadron is the second IAF Squadron to be equipped with Rafale aircraft. The Squadron was formed on 01 May 1949 at Palam and has operated Harvard, Spitfire, Vampire, Su-7 and MiG-21M aircraft in the past. The glorious history of this Squadron includes active participation in 1965 and 1971 Indo-Pak wars.

Air Chief Marshal Bhadauria embarks on UAE visit


2-3 minutes



Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria on Saturday embarked on a visit to the United Arab Emirates. His visit comes roughly eight months after Chief of Army Staff Gen MM Naravane visited the Gulf country.


It said Air Chief Marshal Bhadauria is visiting the UAE on an invitation from Major General Ibrahim Nasser M Al Alawi, Commander of the UAE Air Force and Air Defence (UAE AF and AD).

“The IAF and UAE AF and AD have had significant professional interactions in the past few years and this visit will further strengthen the defence cooperation and Air Force level exchanges, as part of the comprehensive strategic partnership between the two sides,” it said, without mentioning the duration of the visit.

In the last few years, India's ties with the UAE have witnessed a major upswing.
