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.
Gp Capt Joseph Noronha looks at the future of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles followed by Gp Capt B Menon presenting the need for developing weapon systems for the Air Force in the near future. Air Marshal PV Naik views National security in a holistic perspective.

The Defence Budget is looked at intently to get the general emphasis of the government on security. Brig Gurmeet Kanwal has debated this lucidly. Maintaining a large standing armed force requires more than mere day-to-day support. An ill-equipped large force mired with equipment hollowness is not a guarantee for security but in a future war will be cannon fodder for the adversary. Someone will have to be held accountable to the nation for this debilitating lapse. Or take a conscious decision to reduce its size if this country cannot afford a well equipped large armed force!!! Preparing an armed force on a long-term basis requires a deeply considered perspective of its future role in the national security scheme and the road map for its implementation. The absence of a doctrine and the hesitation of establishing a single point of contact on all matters military have been well debated in this issue. Generals Harwant and Banerjee and Colonel Achutan look at the aspects of doctrine.
‘Make in India’ has been the didactic theme of this Government. It needs to be spelt out in clear terms and not left to the (mis-)interpretation of the bureaucracy. Make in India will be feasible only when the basic industrial manufacturing has notched up a number of counts and the manpower skills to go with it are matching. Currently it is more theoretical than implementable. The articles Dr Misra, Air Marshal Kukreja and Group Captain Noronha address these issues with particular reference to the aero-space industry.
Two articles relate to the major current event on PM Modi’s visit to China; the first is on Tibet and the second on the boundary issue. Cyber space is emerging the next frontier; Gen Davinder Kumar has generated an excellent discussion on the issue. Col Harjeet has looked at the implications of social media on security. As a first Claude Arpi has documented a diary highlighting prominent issues relating to China’s PLA in this first quarter. This will now be a regular feature in the print edition.Wishing all our readers a worthwhile professionally invigorating reading experience.
