Bare force?
...force a question mark
12/07/2007

Technically the fourth largest air force in the world, the Indian Air Force probably never had it so bad. Especially at a time when the nation’s increasing geopolitical and economic importance is expanding the strategic paradigm of the country’s air force. The same schizophrenic indecisiveness, which has so far delayed the modernisation of Indian Army, has literally crippled the air force. While its dwindling fleet of ageing MiGs is forcing it to reduce the number of squadrons much below the sanctioned level, the indigenous production of Sukhois have not been able to keep pace with the desired level. While the government has been unable to bring out the tender of the much needed 126 MRCAs, the ageing SAMs are adding to the woes. This, at a time when China and Pakistan have been vociferously investing in their air forces. While we self defeatingly dither on crucial purchases, India’s government goes one step ahead and continues investing in the ostensible research capabilities of ISRO and similar inefficient domestic organisations, which have been able to deliver zilch!
