On multiple event’s the IAF proved that when it comes to protecting the motherland no one can surpass them, since the foundation of air force was laid much before the Independence they displayed their capabilities in the World War 2 against Japan in Burma.Since Independence India has been in War with the neighbouring countries and in every war airforce played a significance role by keeping the enemies out in wide sky.During the first war with Pakistan in 1947 and the second war too air fighters provided a leverage with close air fight over the enemies and by doing airlift operations.In 1999 Kargil war air fighters provided close air support to the ground army this strike was named as ‘operation safed sager’.Their has been various occasions when the air army proved it’s significance , whether it is our war against Sri Lanka or china they always came in support to the ground and naval force as always the three forces of India worked together in every situation to keep citizens safe as history is a  proof that citizens of our nation never faced threat during war as the matters were kept outside by our forces.
