The first time Indian Air Force came into brave action was during the Waziristan war against the tribal. During World, War II proved to be a great defence force, especially in Burma. Its anonymous contribution and achievement made the IAF win the prefix of Royal in 1945 and hence came to be known as the Royal Indian Air Force (RIAF). Later the prefix Royal was dropped when the country became a republic in the year 1950.
