    The big emphasis on this word "potential"

    Japan, Australia and India. Seems China specific and since India doesnt use US fighters so US tactics dont make sense.
    What could happen and is the three countries get training on coordinated anti sub and ship warfare for P-8 Posiedens.

    America has been training with Japanese and Australian air forces for decades. As for india, well they have had regular training in war games with the American air force. Nothing new about, only problem for india is that it doesn't operate any american fighter-jets, nor does it operate any american force multipliers like awacs, electronic warfare planes or etc. So I don't understand what's so big about this news!!

    Very much China-specific. Australia and Japan operate American origin fighter aircraft. It's easier for them to have joint training sessions with the US. India, on the other hand, does not operate any US origin fighter aircraft. But a small itch in my brain says that this might change sooner or later.

    Great news this exercise will help alot in India getting f35 very soon and be with nato forces.
    We need to join hands with us as alley.
    This will help not just defensive partnership but once we get in their safe n comfort zone, we can share commercial benefits Aswell.
    Everybody wants to get out of China. These are great times.

    Pakistan didn't use Jaguars yet our pilots were flying Tornadoes and Hawks in the UK.

    Expect to see the Rafale, and Mirages participate a lot more in international exercises like these, esp those oriented against China.

    Doesn't look like India is rethinking her approach to joing the "Indo-Pacific alliance..."

    "Raise with Asia or drown with the USA".

    As reported, this message was given to India by China and Russia, and visibly India has opted for later.

    Possibly the Navy will take the lead here as most early MiG-29K/KuB fighter pilots were trained in the USA and USN-IN relations are very strong.

    That's because our pilot's were expected to fly or train Saudi Hawk and Tornados.
