Geopolitics’ November, 2019 issue primarily focuses on the modernisation and upgradation of the Indian military’s special forces. The edition highlights the weapons used to kill Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the most wanted terrorist in the world. The issue also analyses the reasons behind why India doesn’t need the F-21 fighter jet, which happens to be a modified version of the F-16 aircraft widely used by the Pakistani Air Force. Detailed articles on infantry weapons modernisation, insurgencies in the North-Eastern states of India, the upcoming K-4 Submarine Launched Ballistic Missile (SLBM) test from INS Arihant, Russia’s Arctic ambitions, Turkish blunderous misadventure inside Syria, the strategic quagmire in Afghanistan, along with a writeup on Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad’s anti-India blabbering at this year’s United Nations General Assembly summit in New York and the Islamic radicalisation of Malaysia’s society under his authoritarian rule, make the issue an interesting read. Interviews of prominent figures in the industry like Dr. G Satheesh Reddy, Chairman of DRDO; Colonel Ashwani Kumar (Retd), DGM of Marketing and Armouring Division of MDNL; Apoorva Tripathi, Head of Sales & Marketing (Defence), The Hi-Tech Robotic Systems; Babu Chandran Nair P, General Manager, Tear Smoke Unit of Border Security Force; and Major General Prem Mohan Vats, Director of Indigenous Defence Equipment Exporters’ Association (IDEEA) make the edition a very enlightening read for all. PLUS: A photo feature on Indian Air Force Day celebrations in Delhi takes the issue to a wonderful conclusion. Two book reviews: Admiral Sushil Kumar’s ‘A Prime Minister to Remember’, and Minnie Vaid’s ‘Those Magnificent Women and Their Flying Machines’ make the edition a must read for everyone.
