Geopolitics (March 2019) issue is timed with the Balakot airstrikes by the Indian Airforce inside Pakistani territory. The edition covers the aftermath and the likely repercussions of the IAF action on South Asia's geopolitical equations. At a time when India's fissile material stockpiles are limited in quantity, thermonuclear weapons are the best way forward towards maintaining the credible minimum deterrence due to the easy availability of Tritium gas. The March issue looks at the future of India's thermonuclear weapons (Hydrogen Bombs) with a strong focus on the development of MIRVs (Multiple Independent Re-entry Vehicles) and MaRVs (Multiple Manoeuvrable Re-entry Vehicles) for India's long-range ballistic missiles. The issue also contains detailed articles on India's cruise missile capability and Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD). The edition also covers important areas like defence procurement procedures, defence budget and artillery and armoured capability of the Indian Army. Plus: All the regular features including a book review of Radha Kumar's Paradise at War: A political history of Kashmir.
