    Do you think IA is equipped for its own missions, which are not the same as western counterparts?

    Never lost a war except 1962, Successful in CT ops in J&K and N.E since 1948 ..

    Even Air softer look more professional then there own country army, But that doesn't mean they are professionals..

    Having the best technological equipment does not make an Army the best......

    Even a very advanced weapon is deadly only when the person using it has the skill and knowledge about the weapon he is using. This what happened during 1971 Indo-Pak war were pakistanis were offered the star fighters from U.S. and were also given missiles which were advanced at that time. Even though they were provided with much advanced technology than what INDIA had at that time, they were not even able to defend themselves and we INDIANS had Gnats of WW-II and we shot down the starfighters using gnats.........

    European Armies are well equipped to invade middle eastern countries (of course only with US support and sometimes Russian airlifters)
    Indian Army is capable to defend Indias borders, may it be in the deserts or in the Himalayas

    Conclusion: Both armies are capable to do for what are meant to do :thumb:

    You have a particular time window within which you can edit your post. Not only you everyone have a time window within which they can edit their post......

    Except for MODS, Star, ELITE and defence professional members who can edit their post depending upon the permissions to each group of members.......

    France certainly isn't the biggest Army, but it is probably the highest tech infantry thanks to FELIN.

    Technology is growing exponentially.
    Consider a drone,in the future there will be drone fighters,totally autonomous using Artificial Intelligence.In that scenario the "skills" of the persons will not matter but the technology.

    As far as equipment goes the IA is in terrible shape.

    Lack of 155 artillery towed, spg, light etc.

    Lack of modern air defense weapons

    Lack of modern infantry equipment (HUGE shortfall here)

    etc.
