A one-month-long joint military training exercise between the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) and the Indian Air Force (IAF) will conclude tomorrow.

The RSAF deployed F-16D Block 52+ fighter aircraft to train with the IAF's Su-30 fighter aircraft during this exercise, which was conducted under the Bilateral Agreement between both air forces.

The agreement, signed in 2007 and renewed in July this year, provides for the conduct of joint military training and exercises in India.

Such training exercises between the two countries have grown in scale and complexity over the years; it now involves advanced air assets from both nations.
