Zilzal-II – the joint aerial exercise of Pakistan Air Force (PAF) and Qatar Emiri Air Force – has kicked off in Qatar today (Wednesday, January 10).
According to the media reports, Pakistan Air Force (PAF) and Qatar Emiri Air Force joint aerial Exercise Zilzal-II is one of the most complex joint air force exercises, which aims at promoting interoperability between the two allied nations. The exercise will mimic a near-realistic aerial warfare scenario coupled with real-time opportunity for the participating Air Forces to test their operational readiness.
The Exercise, aimed at improving joint planning mechanism, is considered a historical benchmark to further solidify the existing defense partnership between the two brotherly countries.
The reports further stated that during the exercise, PAF’s newly inducted state-of-the-art J-10C fighter aircraft will flex its muscles against Eurofighter jets of Qatar Emiri Air Force in their first-ever face-off in an aerial exercise.
