    In a bid to make the youth aware about the IAF and encourage them to join the forces, the Indian Air Force had launched the multiplayer version of its interactive mobile game which lets users experience the thrill of flying a combat aircraft.

    The game features a character sporting a gunslinger moustache similar to that of Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, who was captured and later released by Pakistan after his vintage MiG-21 Bison aircraft was shot down in an aerial dogfight which broke out in the aftermath of Balakot airstrike in February this year.

    The game, available for Android and iOS, is a combat simulator which lets the players choose from an array of fighter aircraft, including Tejas, Rafale Mirage-2000, Su-30 among others.

    The multiplayer version has two modes - team battles, where players team up, and death match, a free for all where the last man standing is the winner.

    The game allows IAF aspirants to experience first hand the roles of an air warrior, as well as means to apply and appear for recruitment from the comfort of a mobile phone.
