IAF on modernising infrastructure

Covai Post Network

The Indian Air Force (IAF) is on a modernisation mode and state of art infrastructure is expected to come up in Thanjavur Air Force Station, according to Group Captain V.J. Singh. He also claimed that the Air Force currently has the capability to undertake any kind of work.

Addressing media persons at the Air Force Station, home to a squadron of Sukhoi Su-30 MKI super-manoeuvrable fighter aircraft in Thanjavur today, Capt. Singh, who is also the Thanjavur Air Force Station Commander, said that crores of rupees would be spent at the base for induction of various modernising weapons. Food and other industry would take a support from the base and it would also provide employment for local people.

“It is very easy to place assets at a short notice if any contingency arises. If we are to protect the island territories like Andaman and Nicobar, we can place assets at very short notice and act,” he added.

The IAF’s 84th anniversary would be celebrated on October 8, Capt, Singh said.
