The Indian Air Force (IAF) on 11 December 2014 launched the second phase of its 3D mobile air combat game, Guardians of the Skies (GOTS). The game will be available on all three popular mobile platforms - Android, iOS and Windows.

In the game, IAF focused on getting a realistic picture of its flying operations, which is also a first of its kind effort by any Air Force in the world on a mobile based platform.  

About Guardians of the Skies
• The game puts players into a stimulated world where players become IAF pilots and battle it out with a fictitious country called Zaruzia.
• In the game, the player undergoes flying training and subsequently gets engaged in combat missions in various aircraft types of the IAF fighters, transport and helicopter fleet.
• Apart from a single player campaign, the game will also have multiplayer mode in which players will be able to carry out simulated combat against each other over a WiFi network.
• The game is optimized to run on devices with as less as 512 MB RAM.

Earlier in July 2014, the first phase of the game with teaser missions was released to attract generation-next youth to pursue a career in the force especially in Air force.

The game received an enthusiastic response from gamers in the age group of 15-25 years and has been complimented for its realistic graphics and game play. The game has won the prestigious Best Indian Game award from Microsoft on its windows application store.

The game has been developed by Threye Interactive in accordance with the strict concept and guidelines laid down by the IAF.
