Four Rafale fighter jets of the Indian Air Force (IAF) recently carried out a long-range mission lasting over six hours in the Indian Ocean Region (IOR).
The IAF confirmed via a tweet that the aircraft encountered a "large force engagement" during the exercise and reached their designated Weapon Release Point, adding that the targets were hit successfully.
"Pickle on time, weapon on target-the IAF way!," the IAF said.
In military terms, the phrase "Pickle on time" refers to the act of releasing or launching a weapon at the precise moment or designated time to maximize its effectiveness and achieve the desired objective.
"Pickle" is a common term used by military pilots to indicate the act of triggering or releasing ordnance, such as bombs or missiles.
