    Already threads exist on this subject, here is an attempt to include more recent articles. Based on what I have seen on DFI for last two years, it would not be productive, in my opinion, to talk about traits of India's political leadership in the context of military doctrine. I'll try to find Indian sources as well as non-Indian ones.

    The thread is intended to describe how armed forces of India would actually fight a war rather than what policy there is about nuclear weapons and their use. There is too much idle talk about using "nukes" on DFI from armchair tacticians, I think we can all agree, although a nuclear scenario could be considered as it applies to warfighting by India's military commanders. Maybe we don't even need to identify the nominal opposing forces.

    I come at this from a background as a former US Army NCO with a fairly deep experience in chemical defense operations. I've also been a military policeman, a tanker, and an intel analyst. I have had a sincere interest in the subject of this thread subject and would like to see it develop. From now on, my posts on DFI will be limited to this thread.

    Perhaps we can approach this from branch specific inputs, and then consider joint and combined operations. Obviously hearing from Indian defense professionals is essential, but nobody can be excluded.
