Well that time is fast running out. After the general election the present NDA Government in seat made its primary agenda to give impetus to the development of infrastructure to NE states Civil and Military.
Of this, km has been completed. The ground forces directed the attack helicopters to various targets, and at the end, a live fire scenario was performed on a ground target.
IAF still seems to be playing the old game of traditional air warfare going by the response of sorties in 3 days. Both the aerial and ground forces drilled warfare in the northern theatre using live fire, relying on the doctrine constructed over the past year by the IAF in cooperation with the GOC Army Headquarters.
Current Government is taking nascent stage in outlining the Defence Procurement Policy DPP but there are still enough loop holes and issues to be ironed out before anything fruitful comes out of it.
The process of developing the infrastructure at air force bases has also started and they would be ready by the time the aircraft fly in for operational service. Air wars, after Gulf-War and especially in the 21st century have been one sided as the air assets of the adversaries have been asymmetric.
Also a point of importance is the serviceable fighter available. Sources said the French aircraft manufacturer has already started the process of building the aircraft, and they are supposed to be delivered from September onwards. Since Grippen and F16 has been tested extensively during MMRCA program the evaluation should be considered based on the trials already conducted and consider the present upgradation offered including Make in India and Transfer of Technology.
This 1, km long rail line, laid over permafrost, connects Lhasa to Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Guangzhou and Xining. Various simulations may give some indications. Which takes Pakistan directly and securely in the lap of China. Reduction in force levels and phasing out of aircraft have meant that the IAF operated only 33 fighter squadrons as of January The tracks over permafrost can accept speeds of up to kmph.
It will result is heavy losses on both sides. IAF aerial forces drilled close air support, evacuation of casualties and airlifts. Rail transportation was also used to move heavy weapons on flat bed trailers with troops travelling in passenger coaches.The IAF is the only factor that can provide the ground forces with close air support and act as a significant aid”.
The rd (“Elephants”) Squadron, which operates “Shimshon” (CJ) aircraft, also participated in the exercise, leading the airlift mission. Be ready for action at short notice: IAF chief.

Facing two-front war scenario with Pakistan, China, IAF readies Rafale fighter jets for combat role. However, within the range of different constraints, historical attrition rates, potential capabilities of adversaries and characteristic of such an air war scenario, we present an estimate of likely losses IAF will suffer in its combat aircraft.
