ISLAMABAD - Air operations are being conducted to validate joint air power employment concepts in the ongoing joint air exercise 'Shaheen-II', between the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) and Chinese Air Force (PLAAF).
The exercise involves complex air operations for mutual learning as well as improving the coordination of both the air forces, said a Pakistan Air Force (PAF) Press release issued here on Sunday.
The exercise 'Shaheen-II' is providing an opportunity to combat crew of both the air forces to acquaint themselves with applied tactics of air power in near real scenario.
It is pertinent to mention that the first exercise of this series 'Shaheen-I' took place in March 2011 in Pakistan at an operational air base of PAF.
