Magazine Description

In this issue

Geopolitics' October 2018 issue celebrates the 86th year of the Indian Air Force where Air Chief Marshal Birender Singh Dhanoa PVSM AVSM YSM VM ADC assures the country that the IAF is prepared to respond to future challenges and safeguard Indian skies. He acknowledges that the IAF faces many challenges and that its procurement schemes were being prioritised within the budgetary resources to ensure that urgent and critical capabilities were acquired first but he maintains that it was potent enough to deliver a befitting response to any contingency. The issue also looks at the country's lengthy and cumbersome weapons acquisition process that is often plagued with the constant charges of lack of transparency, kickbacks and corruption and suggests what the Air Force has to buy and make quickly. It also finds out what the Indian Air Force must acquire the right number and types of aircraft that complement its combat strategy. There is also a detailed report on how the IAF can counter the Chinese aerospace power that is growing by leaps and bounds, even as Pakistan is looking to boost its air power via Chinese knockoffs. Also, a look at how the repeated delays involving the Tejas light fighter have irreparably harmed the credibility of the programme. Plus: All our regular features.
