By the author of The Illuminati: Facts & Fiction
A fair number of our articles are devoted to analysing India’s Air Power. Air Marshal Dhiraj Kukreja has comprehensively dwelt on India’s present and future combat fleet. Drones as game changers are presented lucidly by S Gopal. Space is considered an adjunct to air power; Gp Capt AK Sachdev has analysed this aspect in relation to India’s space endeavours. IAF phased out its fleet of Canberra medium bombers in 1990. Was that a well considered decision taking into account India’s future growth as a regional and global power? The role of bombers in the air force is pithily argued by Sqn Ldr Vijainder Thakur. As aircraft exploit the air medium, air defence weapons aim to deny this freedom to aircraft and missiles. Air Marshal Anil Chopra brings forth the success of the ‘Iron Dome’ deployed by the Israelis and its role in protecting surface targets.
This issue also covers India’s ‘sub-conventional deficit’ by our special correspondent and the present state of insurgency in India’s North East region by Brig R Borthakur. Gen Vijay Oberoi has highlighted the need for a structural change in India’s higher defence management. Brig Deepak Sinha has raised the issue of India’s security strategy and doctrine being on divergent paths. Maj Gen AK Chadha has emphatically put forth the need for the military in the digitalised battle field to carve out its own ‘slice of space’ for operating successfully in such a future war scenario. Air Marshal Anil Chopra and Dr SN Misra have presented the efficacy of TOT and off sets and challenges before the defence industry. Mr Kanwal Sibal has critically assessed the evolving dynamics of Indo-US relations. Gen JS Lidder with his UN experience has looked at the need for enhancing the role of women in conflict zones. Claude Arpi has been a keen China watcher. He presents the current situation in the PLA consequent to the crackdown by the Chinese President Xi Jinping on the wide spread corruption in the Chinese PLA.The IDR has endeavoured through the range of articles to hold the interest of the serious reader of military affairs.

Group Captain Sachdev looks critically into whether the
Indian Air Force equipped for a two-front war in case China-Pakistan join hands
to attack India at the same time. The IAF has already informed the government
that they are not prepared to handle the two-front war and hence, finalization
of MMRCA deal is extremely vital.
There is an interesting debate of shaping, equipping and
employing Special Forces by Saikat Dutta and Force Projection by Brig Deepak
Sinha. Also our senior military experts propose tired board defence against China.
With the classified Handerson Brooke report leaked out, Gen Bajwa, former Chief
of Staff Eastern Command draws interesting lessons from it.
On the other hand, Bharat Verma takes apart and attempt to
create a ‘fake military coup’ as also details the incompetence of the defence
minister, which has lowered the military preparedness in the last 10 years
against increasing and multiplying security threats on India’s border.
