15 December 2010 -- The Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) and the Indian Air Force (IAF) are conducting a Joint Military Training (JMT) at Kalaikunda Air Force Station, India, from 2 to 16 Dec 2010.

The RSAF's F-16C/D fighter aircraft, RBS-70 fire unit and PSTAR radar have been deployed to train with the IAF's MiG-27 squadron for this year's JMT. The JMT provides an excellent opportunity for the two air forces to train together in realistic and challenging conditions. The training also helps to enhance interoperability and foster closer rapport and understanding amongst the personnel of both air forces.

JMT 2010 is conducted under the Bilateral Agreement for the Conduct of Joint Military Training and Exercises in India between the RSAF and the IAF, which was established in October 2007. The JMT underscores the warm defence relationship between the RSAF and the IAF. Aside from training together, the two air forces also interact regularly through the exchange of visits, cross-attendance of courses and other professional exchange programmes.
