Re: Official IAF Mobile Game - Guardians of the Skies

Sameer,
I have a S4 and the game is repeatedly force-stopping and restarting.
I have closed bulk of my apps on the phone and still the same result.

I noticed that specifically, when I fly low(below 1000 ft), the hang is more prominent.
Do you have the link for the PC version by any chance?

Re: LCA News and Discussions

Sanku da, They are directly dependent on each other. The IAF determines whether the LCA is the best in class fighter, after evaluating it. As it stands, the number of issues with the LCA is so high that unless they are addressed, they are determined to move on. Till it proves its mettle to the IAF, ...
