It is the deadliest attack aircraft of the Indian Air Force, the Jaguar. The Jaguar played a major role in the 1999 Kargil War, the Jaguar is a lethal aircraft and the Jaguar is a twin-engine fighter jet. Jaguar, also known as a strike attack aircraft, easily lands on rough surfaces and unprepared runways.

The Jaguar can fly at a low level, allowing it to avoid radar detection and deliver fatal strikes on the enemy. The payload capacity of the Jaguar is 4,500 kg, in which 8/500 kg bombs can be transported. Jaguar’s low-level flight allows the unguided aurlaser-guided boom to reach its target with ease.


This is the MIG 29 fighter jet and I really like it. The top speed of the MIG 29 is 2400 km/h. It can fly up to 1430 km. Even in the 1999 Kargil war, the enemy had to chew on it. After upgrading to the MIG 29, it also gets an air-to-air refueling system. The MiG 29 joined the Indian Air Force in 1985. After the modernization of the MIG 29, a new radar system was installed.

The MIG 29 can track 10 targets and engage four targets simultaneously. The air-to-ground attack capability was realized after the MiG 29 was upgraded. The total capacity of the MIG 29 can take off with 4,000 kg of ammunition. It uses S5, S8, S24 missiles as weapons, and r27, rer, et air to air missiles as missiles.


The Sukhoi-30 is the backbone of the Indian Air Force. Inducted into the Indian Air Force in 2002. More than 250 of them have been made so far. The Sukhoi-30 can take off with a mass of 38,800 kg. The Sukhoi-30 has a maximum speed of Mach 2 and a range of 3,000 km. The Sukhoi-30 can fly in any weather conditions.

The BrahMos cruise missile was successfully test-fired in 2016 with this Sukhoi-30 fighter jet. It is 22 meters long and 6 and a half meters high. It has two engines. Currently, this aircraft serves all three wings of the military.


This is the Rafale fighter jet that recently joined the Indian Air Force fleet. Scrab cruise missile is the strength of Rafale through which Rafale can hit any enemy base while flying over India’s skies. Hammer missile for short range attacks. A fighter can fire 2500 rounds from the gun in 1 minute.

The Rafale has a powerful radar system like the F-16. The Rafale radar system, installed at the same time, can identify 40 targets within a 100 km radius. Everyone is proud that Rafale is flying in the sky today and the whole world has seen its power.

Apache: Alexander the Sky

The Apache attack helicopter is known as the Alexander of the sky. Hearing the name of the Apache attack helicopter makes the enemy sweat. The Apache is a 4-blade attack helicopter with a turbocharged engine. Apache flies through the sky at a speed of 265 kilometers per hour. With the help of its sensor, you can even perform the operation at night.

Apache can easily carry missiles and rockets. This helicopter belongs to the Multirole Combat category. It requires two pilots to fly and has two engines. The most important thing about this Apache helicopter is that it can also fire anti-tank guided missiles at the enemy. That is why it is the most dangerous attack helicopter in the world. It has a 30mm cannon and a 70mm rocket. This attack helicopter is capable of combating not only threats on the ground, but threats in the air as well.
