If you have always been fascinated by the idea of flying a fighter aircraft on a combat mission for the Indian Air Force (IAF), you can do it right from the comfort of your living room now. (Screengrab of the Game)
The IAF launched a mobile game that allows you to play a combat game on 10 different missions, including the surgical strike, using your mobile phone.

The game features a character similar to Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman with a gunslinger moustache as the mascot pilot, but this can be customised by a user. (Screengrab of the Game)
The missions on the app are dramatic. Take the surgical strike mission for example. Inspection of a damaged dam reveals that it was sabotaged by a terrorist group from a neighbouring country. (Screengrab of the Game)
One choose a multi-role Mirage 2000 aircraft armed to the teeth with weapons such as the MICA, Griffin LGB, Spice 2000 bombs and 30 mm autocannons. (Screengrab of the Game)
The game, which has been launched with a single-player version, includes nine other combat missions of similar nature. In the 'natural disaster event', the challenge for the player will be to provide humanitarian assistance after a dam breach occurs high up in the mountains. A player is required to carry out a combat air patrol and intercept incoming enemy fighters and bombers in 'air defence ops'. (Screengrab of the Game)
