    trade goodies like %tage dealership aka dalali ! You know our system is very efficient in purchasing capital goods. Road construction may get delayed but the Raw material is purchased within months of Tender issue date. All they want is PAISA !~ :namaste:

    Just silly to make announcements like this while buying Apaches,Rafeles, PAKFA, developing
    LCA and AKASH etc... Better not to say anything. Why waste millions/billions for things like
    air launched brahmos? This statement sounds even more stupid when we have issues with
    our artillery.

    Who made this statement? Is this person from the MOD or a politician or IAF spokesperson?

    I would not give much credibility to this statement. India did not spend
    50-100 billion dollars for nothing.

    Historically, in the event of a foreign invasion - Indian leadership has come out as - secular, corrupt, inept, weak, timid and intellectually bankrupt! No doubt such statements are made in the media and the icing on the cake is the statement made in the aftermath of the first Pokharan Tests i.e. "peaceful nuclear explosion" (the minister should have been slapped for making such shameful statement).

    PLAAF back then had 2000-3000 combat aircrafts comprising of Mig15/17/19/IL-28, etc, aircrafts that were considered state-of-the-art at the time. In a way PLAF was more advanced then than it is now and it had also edge in experience which it gained from the korean war as well as aerial combats over the taiwan strait. Don't think IAF would stand a chance much less change the course of the war.

    In 1962, IAF would have the advantage of carrying heavier ordnance , the airfields being at sea level.

    The PLAAF would have to operate from Tibetan airfield to be in the within the parameters of the combat turn around circuit.

    Tibetan airfields being in High Altitude, the ordnance carrying capacity would be low.

    Adding to Ray Sir post..

    During 1962, PLAAF back in days even now lack number of dedicate Airbases to carry out operations this far into Indian Zone..

    Back in days PLAAF fighters lack such range so does there engines were not design to fly at such High altitudes..

    Where as Indian Air-force did not have such limitations, IAF have very quality Air-crafts back in days which were capable to defending in those heights..

    Research before post..

    1. Where it was ?
    2. Terrain ?
    3. Type of Aircraft based there ?
    4. No of Airbases ?

    Unless you are aware of these factors, your post is not related with the body of the thread..

    Well that is the Chinese view.

    We can do nothing about it except debate it out.

    IAF, Army engage in war drill along India-China border

    PTI Mar 2, 2012, 03.06PM IST

    SHILLONG: In a war preparedness drill, Indian Air Force and Indian Army are engaged in an exercise to test their combat potentials along India-China border, defence officials said here today.

    Code named 'Pralay', the joint exercise commenced on Wednesday in Arunachal Pradesh, the officials said.

    "The exercises are being conducted day and night with long range bombing missions simulating deep strikes in enemy territory," a defence official said.



    The Air Force jets were engaged in bombing missions at air to ground ranges under dense air defence environment. IAF's Su 30 MKI, Mirage-2000, Mig-29, Jaguar, Bison, Mi-17, AN-32, C-130, AWACS, flight refueling aircraft and remotely piloted aircraft are being used in the exercise, the officials said.

    "Advance technologies and changed pattern of operations necessitated the forces to go for this exercise. Lessons learnt from this exercise will be incorporated in future operational strategies," the official said.
