Indian Air Force celebrated its 83rd Air Force Day, with a large parade and air display at the Hindon air base near Delhi today. Indian Air Force was officially established on 8th October 1932 with five Indian pilots and now it has conquered the skies.
 
Today is the right day to rewind the contributions of Indian Air Force in major wars against our country. In every major war that India has fought, the Air Force has played a crucial role. Here we list out the contributions of Indian Air Force for the country during various wars.World War II (1939-1945):
 
During World War II the IAF played an instrumental role in blocking the advance of the Japanese Army in Burma. The IAF was mainly involved in strikes, close Air Support, Aerial reconnaissance, bomber escort and Path finding missions for the Royal Air Force (RAF) and United States Army Air Force (USAAF).
The War of Kashmir 1965:
The Indo-Pak war of 1965 was a culmination of skirmishes that took place between April 1965 and September 1965 between Pakistan and India. This war started following Pakistan's Operation Gibraltar which was designed to infiltrate forces into Jammu and Kashmir to precipitate an insurgency against rule by India. India retaliated by launching a full scale military attack on Pakistan. It was a seventeen day war which caused thousands of causalities on both sides.
IAF Fighters intervened in an ongoing battle between Indian and Pakistani forces in Chhamb. Initially it had sent the obsolete Vampires and later the Mysteres to stop Pakistan's advancement. Two days later IAF fighters shot down a PAF F-86 Sabre over Chhamb area.
Bangladesh Liberation War 1971:
By now the IAF was able to measure up to the most powerful air forces of the world. This was the first ever war over east Pakistan skies (present day Bangladesh), three aircraft of Pakistan Air Force were shot down by IAF Gnats. During this war, India miserably failed the plans of Pakistan and the Indian response over Pakistani skies also caused severe blows to the PAF.
Operation Poomalai 1987:
Failing to negotiate an end to the Sri Lankan Civil War, India sent a convoy of unarmed ships to northern Sri Lanka to provide more than 1000 tonnes of humanitarian aid, but it was intercepted by the Sri Lankan Navy and sent back. Following this, the Indian Government decided to carry out an airdrop of the humanitarian supplies. Five An-32s of the, escorted by five Mirage 2000s carried out the supply drop. Message was conveyed to the Sri lankan Ambassador that Indian Air Force would be flying a mission at 1600 Hours to drop supplies over Jaffna. The ambassador was told that the aircraft were expected to complete their mission unhindered and any opposition by the Sri Lankan Air Force 'would be met by force' by the escorting Mirage 2000s. The air drop was a success and the IAF was unopposed by the Sri Lankan forces.
Kargil War 1999:
In this war, the Indian Air Force is said to have proved the decisive force in accelerating the end of the conflict. It successfully provided considerable air-cover for Indian troops fighting against Pakistani soldiers and also carried out air assaults against enemy forces in Kashmir. Mirage 2000 helped to carry out surgical operations to assist ground troops in securing the strategically crucial Tiger Hill from its Pakistani captors. It also carried out several operations to provide essential supplies to the ground troops. This was the first time in the history of military aviation that air power was used at a height of upto 32,000 feet by the Indian Air Force, which also included use of laser guided bombs to pinpoint and target enemy bunkers on hilltops.- See more at: http://www.merinews.com/article/crucial-roles-played-by-indian-air-force-during-the-war-time/15910276.shtml#sthash.iqCR5Dqk.dpuf
