February 19: The IAF received detailed and exact operational clearance, approved by the PM and NSA.

February 26: The D-Day. Time chosen: Between 0300 and 0330 hours.

0100 hours: 1 Embraer AEW-145 took off from the Bhatinda airbase.

0100 hours: 1 IL-78 mid-air refueller took off from the Agra airbase.

0200 hours: 16 Mirage 2000s from three squadrons – 1 from the Tiger squadron, 7 from Battle Axes and 8 from Wolf Pack – took off from the Gwalior airbase in batches, with 6 fighters in three pairs of two being designated to carry out precision strikes using Israeli laser pods on Pakistan’s terror training camps.

0300 hours: 4 SU-30 MKIs took off from Sirsa airbase.

0300 hours: IAF bases were alerted to deploy ground assets and recovery teams in case a crash happens in Indian airspace.

Pechora missiles at all IAF bases near LoC and IB were kept on standby to counter Pak aircraft in case they come into Indian airspace chasing the Mirage 2000s.

Those 17 Minutes:

Mirage 2000 were cleared from the command centre to proceed.

The Mirage 2000 jets flew across LoC at the low level.

The pilots of the Mirage 2000 jets used laser pods to ‘paint’ targets.

Finally, the Mirage 2000 jets dropped their payload of bombs.

Pakistani F16s retaliated, but turned back due to the size of Indian formation.
