RAF Personnel, under the command of No.8 RAF Force Protection Wing, have arrived at Hindan Air Force base to take part in Exercise INDRADHANUSH.

The exercise will see the Force Protection Force (RAF Police and RAF Regiment) working alongside Garud Regiment and Indian Air Force Police and Security personnel.

INDRADHANUSH is part of an ongoing bi-lateral UK/Indian Air Force exercise programme which began in 2013. Previous iterations involved fast jet, air transport and force protection personnel both in India and the UK. 

"The training will strengthen relationships between both forces whilst exchanging tactics, techniques and procedures and demonstrate FP armoured vehicle capability," said Wing Commander Lee Wales, Officer Commanding No. 8 RAF Force Protection Wing.

The RAFP are deploying on Exercise INDRADHANUSH to show the key role they play in securing and enabling the delivery of Air Power through cross-domain protective security and counter intelligence.
