Magazine Description

In this issue

Timed with Aero India 2019, Geopolitics February 2019 issue takes an indepth look at India's depleting Air Force squadron strength in a hostile strategic environment and advocates that the defence budget has to be at least 2.5 per cent of GDP for next two decades in general and capital budget of Rs 60,000 crore a year for the Indian forces. The magazine also details the need of additional fighter aircraft on a priority basis. While the preference for additional Rafales and a new MMRCA might be the IAF's choice, secondary options such as the purchase of additional Tejas Mk.1s and Su-30MKIs need to be considered. A close look at the fighters on offer from six global firms that have expressed interest after the Request for Information (RFI) was floated last year. Also a detailed study about which platforms would be suitable for the fleet with a focus on indigenisation. Plus: Details about the five new helicopter types that the IAF will induct over the next few years and all our regular features.
