The Indian Air Force (IAF) is preparing to elevate its special forces training with the procurement of a Vertical Wind Tunnel (VWT). This advanced technology simulates realistic free-fall conditions, offering unparalleled training opportunities for the elite Garud Commando Force.

As the special forces unit of the IAF, the Garud Commandos shoulder critical responsibilities. They specialize in counter-terrorism operations, hostage rescue, protection of vital IAF assets, and unique air force-centric special operations. Since their establishment in 2004, the Garuds have proven their mettle in various missions.

A VWT provides a controlled environment for Garud commandos to:

  • Perfect freefall techniques: Mastering body control and maneuvers crucial for high-altitude parachute operations.
  • Simulate real-world scenarios: Practicing maneuvers in different conditions, enhancing decision-making.
  • Minimize risks: Training in a safe environment reduces potential injuries during live jumps.

This procurement underscores the Indian Air Force’s commitment to providing its Garud Commandos with the best possible training facilities, ensuring they are fully prepared to execute complex and demanding missions.
