Magazine Description

In this issue

Geopolitics’ August 2019 issue focusses on the Indian government’s decision to acquire ‘S-400 Triumf’ air-defence missile systems from Russia defying threats of CAATSA sanctions from the United States. The edition analyses the challenges towards making India a major industrial hub for manufacturing of small arms and ammunition. The issue also highlights India’s anti-armour fighting capabilities in the tactical level battlefield. Comprehensive articles on Paramilitary and Police modernisation; Integrated Battle Groups; India’s warship building capability; decoy measures for military aircraft; as well as usage of long-range acoustic devices for crowd control are in the issue. The Periscope section carries a report on the launch of Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft to the moon. The Tech Scan section looks at India’s decision to acquire ‘M982 Excalibur’ satellite-guided artillery shells from the United States while the Panorama section carries a report on the Garuda-VI military exercise recently held between India and France. The issue also carries a photo-feature on Defence Minister Rajnath Singh’s visit to INS Shivalik and INS Sindhukirti at Visakhapatnam. A writeup on India’s experimentation with hypersonic missile propulsion technologies takes the edition to a logical conclusion. Plus, two book reviews: Anil Swarup’s ‘Not Just A Civil Servant’ and Deepak Gupta’s ‘The Steel Frame- A History Of The IAS’ makes the edition a must read for everyone.
