I agree with you on certain points ZOOM but our MBRL are not unguided ones they are linked with UAV's so we can precisely direct our fire and use them effectively in counter artillery fire. So our boys don't get pounding.
I dont think we yet have guided MBRL. The process is still some distance away. The DRDO is working on it.

Sorry yes my way of putting was not right they are unguided rockets but we are not totally dependent on crew members experience to direct fire they get feeds from UAV's and then the fire is directed in that place. Also I think Israelis are also involved in this project of increasing Pianka's range as well as putting INS in the rockets

India ramps up military presence along China border

India is ramping up its military deployment along the border with China.

It is positioning two army divisions, each comprising around 25,000 to 30,000 personnel, as well as a squadron of frontline Sukhoi Su-30 MKI combat jets at a key airbase in the northeast, military officials said.

In addition, the induction of the first of three airborne warning and control systems (AWACS) aircraft will be a potent force multiplier in the military's capabilities to monitor the movement of troops and aircraft in Chinese territory.

"Hitherto, the Indian defence establishment's focus had been on Pakistan but there is a growing realisation that we cannot ignore China's growing military might and its ability to quickly move troops and equipment thanks to the railway line it has built up to Lhasa," a top military official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

"India and China might have put their border dispute on the back burner as they move ahead in other spheres but there is a growing realisation that we need to refocus on China, the warming diplomatic relations and the joint war games notwithstanding," the officer added.

Thus, it was a matter of little surprise that India's normally taciturn defence establishment chose to speak through a former Indian Army chief, General J.J. Singh, who is now the governor of the strategic northeastern state of Arunachal Pradesh - parts of which Beijing claims - to detail its road map for the heightened deployment along the China border.

"To develop India's capability to effectively meet the future security challenges, deployment of more troops along the India-China border is necessary," Singh told reporters Monday in Itanagar.

He said two army divisions, each comprising around 25,000 to 30,000 personnel, along with artillery, medical, signals and engineering support, would be positioned along the 3,500 kilometre-long international border.

"The exercise would be completed in a phased manner in the next few years along with development of roads and other infrastructure along the borders," Singh said.

"Increase of the force level, and improvement of weapons, fighting platforms, intelligence acquiring and other equipment are aimed at enhancing the capabilities of the Army troopers to effectively meet any sort of challenges," he added.

A squadron of Su-30MKIs would become operational at the Tezpur air base in Assam next week.

A defence spokesperson said Tuesday four of the multi-role jets would land June 15 Tezpur, about 185 kilometre north of Assam's main city of Guwahati.

This is good news, the key point is building up our infrastructure in these areas...in case of full scale war, the biggest issue will not be men rather it will be material and supplies. Addressing that will go a long way in giving our men a better chance.

Nitesh, it depends upon which target are you choosing to attack on. MBRLs are basically used for cracking hardened bunkers and command centers and increasing troop coloumns backed by Tanks.

I wonder why they reopen the boarder which was once sealed after the 1962 war.
If they wouldn't had done that then none of this boarder issue would had raised again.....
Remember PRC had always been aggressive and if they can get the entire 10,0000 old nation like
Tibet, then India is not too far away......so my indian friends wake up and clear off this whole boarder issue.
We're speaking from our own experience.

India to Dispatch Nuclear-Capable Jets to Chinese Border
Wednesday, June 10, 2009


India said yesterday it plans to send fighter jets capable of carrying nuclear weapons to its border with China, United Press International reported (see GSN, Dec. 15, 2008).

Indian defense official Col. R. Kalia said New Delhi would next week begin sending the advanced aircraft to a base in Tezpur, where the Chinese are alleged to have breached the border on several occasions, according to Indian news reports.

"Four Sukhoi 30-MKI fighter jets would land first and soon it would be a full squadron comprising of 18 aircraft," Kalia said (United Press International, June 9).

US firms against Obama's 'Bangalore Buffalo' rhetoric

A month after US President Barack Obama came out with 'Say No to Bangalore and yes to Buffalo' rhetoric, which now echoes in the corridors of Capitol Hill, American companies have launched a campaign against the new law that ends tax incentives to those firms which create jobs overseas.

The Technology CEO Council, a Washington-based advocacy group of US American tech-companies, today released a report which revealed that the policy to end "tax breaks" announced by Obama would result in a job loss of as many as 2.2 million Americans.

Home demand inching up, but recovery not in sight

Homes sales in India are trickling back in some sections of the market, but industry watchers say a rebound is months away as buyers in the world's second-most populous country await further price corrections.

Builders have begun new projects after a year-long hiatus, and are also swapping older premium project proposals for cheaper ones to restart sales as they try to beat a severe cash crunch.

India is acting very immaturely. There is no reason to publicly state that we believe that China is a huge threat to us.

Of course China is a huge threat to India! But we don't need to go around screaming it to the entire world! This will only further sour our relations with China, and lead to more problems down the line.

We also need to stop publicizing all our military projects and infrastructure projects on the indo-china border.

Recently it was said that China is our biggest threat because we don't know anything about their military and infrastructure. Their secrecy is our biggest threat.

Then why can't we be secretive too?

We are a democracy, and we believe in the free flow of information. We are not a totalitarian dictatorship like them.

All countries have secrets, but the degree of it differs. China is far, far more interested in censorship than India. If they had freedom of information, their government would collapse within a few months.

its the duty of the government to let know the ppl what developments it made in military and other sectors and hence letting some secrets should be there in democracy...
