    For people saying it's not possible in India, they should know better than to shoot their mouth off without having any knowledge of what's what.

    Mirages and Jaguars have been doing it by operating from dispersed locations as part of exercises for years now.
    This thing has just begun to be covered by the press.

    The airbase at Ambala is already a part of the highway and there's an emergency highway to be used in contingencies and such not far from the base.

    Yamuna Expressway already exists and for people saying it can't be maintained, they need to take a drive on it first.

    Even express ways are becoming shitty, what if they start to maintain the strips and then war starts?

    There is no dearth of airports today. But bro, in war you need redundant and resilient infrastructure to support your war machine.
    Abbe have some shame. Learn something from Taiwan and how it organises its defence in the face of certain defeat. Do they not use most of their highways for this purpose? That is how a country that takes its threats seriously reacts. If India is doing this, its good. It means maybe we have started taking things a bit more seriously. Its not good defense policies (such as increasing infrastructure resilience and redundancy) that get you fu**ed if war starts, its the laid-back attitude (like the one you just displayed) that causes 1962-type disasters.

    Its never fun replying to retards. but here goes

    The big difference between India and countries like Taiwan, Sweden, Finland is that their land is limited.
    If you do not really know Geography, Taiwan is an island, and they have excellent and well developed industry, thus their need takes them to think of using Highways as emergency runaways. Further you can compare the road discipline in Japan or Taiwan and then compare it with India.

    Further, are you aware that most of the black money is funneled through Bihar /UP area? How does that happen without local political support?

    Airport ek ghante close hua to tumhari phatti hai, imagine closing the highway for a day,. everyhthing will get chocked specially delhi.

    1962 was really a disaster by Nehru, do have a nice read about it,. he sent a guirella force behind the chinese lines and expected these soldiers to live off the inhospitable land..

    To correct you, 1962 did not happened because of stupid people like me but because people like you voted for Tharki uncle, Do read about JFKs and other leaders notes, Tharki uncle was more interested in chasing Jackie than having talk with JFK.. When the country is in hands of a man who only thinks of romantic ventures with videshi maal.. aisa hi hoga..

    Call me a retard or whatever you want, I do not take affront to personal remarks.

    Taiwan, Sweden, Finland are all using highways as emergency runways due to their absence of strategic depth.
    I am sure you are aware that we lack strategic depth of the sort China has. Given our limited strategic depth, its only prudent we increase resilience and redundancy of our infrastructure.

    Also, expressways are in their infancy in this country but are fast expanding. It will take time before we see such expressways in other areas of strategic importance. Until then practicing such tactics on currently operational expressways is a good step.

    If the situation is so bad that we have to use emergency landing strips so close to the capital during a war with PRC, surely the citizens of India would not mind spending an extra 2 hours covering the Delhi-Agra stretch via NH19/44 instead of crying foul over the shutdown of the Yamuna expressway.

    I am well aware of why we lost 1962. My point being, not being militarily prepared and adopting Nehru's "forward policy" was a bad defense policy that lost us the war whereas increasing resilience and redundancy of war infrastructure is a sound policy.

    Yaar news main black money sun-sun ke pak gaya hoon.
    Idhar bhi black money?

    Its a nice highway we have got, ones it gets completed fully, its going to look and feel like a autobahn like expressway.

    Still using highways during war is not going to be vialble,
    Though its good for emergency take off or landing ..

    I think that is the whole purpose of this activity. They would use for emergency landing and takeoff.

    IAF to conduct full War drill on Agra-Lucknow Express on October 24
    Thursday, October 12, 2017 By: News Nation Source Link: CLICK HERE
    [​IMG]

    Indian Air Force is all set to carry out full war drill on Agra-Lucknow Expressway at Bangarmau in Uttar Pradesh on October 24.

    Sources close to News Nation in the Uttar Pradesh government and Indian Air Force confirmed the development.

    According to plans, more than 20 aircrafts and cargo planes of the Indian Air Force will participate in the war drill on the expressway.

    Sources told our reporter that Sukhoi, Tejas, Mikoyan MiG-29, Dassault Mirage 2000, Jaguar, MiG-27ML, MiG-21, Boeing C-17 Globemaster III, Ilyushin Il-76MD and Lockheed C-130J Super Hercules will take part in the drill.

    According to a senior Indian Air Force, official Hercules will be a major attraction of the Indian Air Force drill as it is one of the largest carrier vehicles.

    The official added all the planes will take off and land on the Expressway.

    According to an Uttar Pradesh administrative official stationed at Bangarmau told News Nation that preparations for the drill have begun.

    “We have received a list of requirements from the Indian Air Force. We are accordingly preparing,” added the administrative officer.

    “Such drills are must during peace days. We have to identify the places where are jets can land and take off during wartime if enemy manages to destroy are major A-strips,” said Maj Gen KV S Lalotra (Retd) who has held important command and staff positions in the Indian Army. Maj Gen Lalotra commanded the strategic 17 Mtn Division along the Indo-China bprder at Sikkim and was the ADG Territorial Army.

    The Agra-Lucknow Expressway is 302-km six-lane Expressway which can be expanded to 8-lane. The expressway starts from Agra to reach Lucknow via Firozabad, Mainpuri, Etawah, Oraia, Kannauj, Hardoi,Kanpur Nagar and Unnao.

    The 302 kilometer-long expressway was completed in a record time of 22 months at the cost of Rs 13,200 crore.

    Six fighter jets of the Indian Air Force participated at the opening ceremony of last year in November at Unnao, around 50 km from Lucknow.

    Last year in the month of May, in a first for military aviation in the country, IAF successfully landed a French Dassault Mirage-2000 fighter jet on the Yamuna Expressway near Raya village, Mathura, as a part of elaborate trials to see how many other highways can be used for war-like emergencies.
