Geopolitics’ November, 2022 edition mainly focusses on the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war. The issue analyses the significance of cyberspace as a potent battlefield of the future. The edition also carries comprehensive articles on the emerging role of Indian private sector corporations and MSMEs in the nation’s defence, geopolitics of global defence trade, and the evolution of sixth-generation fighter aircrafts. Two reports on the recently concluded Zhuhai air show in China, and laying of foundation stone of the Airbus C-295 airplane factory at Vadodara in Gujarat by Prime Minister Narendra Modi make the issue a very interesting read. The Diplomacy section carries a feature on Pakistan’s social, economic and political failure as a state. The Periscope section carries a writeup on the recent launch of Agni-Prime nuclear ballistic missile which can be easily converted into an anti-ship ballistic missile (ASBM) in the near future. An exclusive interview of Hamad Alameri- CEO of Caracal, brings the edition to an interesting conclusion. The November, 2022 issue of the magazine is a must-read for everybody.
