Rafale, Sukhoi, and Apache jets fly past Kartavya Path during the Indian Air Force’s Republic Day display of force.

The Republic Day parade of 2023 was a display of India’s military prowess and a variety of cultures from around the nation. In the much anticipated Fly-Past, the Indian Air Force displayed its collection of vintage and contemporary aircraft, including Rafale fighters, Sukhois, Apaches, and Jaguars.

1. The Trishul formation comprised three Sukhoi-30 MKI air superiority fighters.

2. Six Jaguar Deep Penetration Strike Aircraft created the Amrit formation.

3. The Bheem formation comprised a C 17 Heavy-Lift Transport aircraft flanked by two Sukhoi 30 MKI Air Superiority fighter jets.

4. Four Rafale multi-role fighter jets and an AEW&C created the Netra formation.

5. Vajraang formation comprised a C 130 Super Hercules Transport Aircraft in the center, flanked by two Rafale multi-role fighters on either side.

6. Baaz formation comprised three Mig 29 Multi-role fighters.
