It used to be a mess, manohar Parrikar reformed it and brought strategic infrastructure under military control.

Result: Work done faster and so effectively that PLA had to send thousands of troops in response five years later.

PS- Whoever has devised this is a PhD in strategic signalling and media management. I wouldn't be surprised if this was the idea of the old man himself.

Indian Army to get drones from Israel, America for surveillance along China border
NEW DELHI: In a major boost to its capabilities, the Indian Army is soon going to get Israeli Heron and American mini drones for upgrading its surveillance capabilities in Eastern Ladakh and other areas along the China border.

"The deals for the acquisition of the Heron surveillance drones is in the final stages and is expected to be inked in December. The Herons are going to be deployed in the Ladakh sector and they will be more advanced than the existing fleet in the Indian armed forces," government sources were quoted as saying by ANI.




The acquisition of these drones is being done under the emergency financial powers granted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government to the defence forces under which they can buy equipment and systems worth ₹500 crores to upgrade their warfighting capabilities, amid ongoing border conflict with China, they added.

According to sources, the other small or mini drones are being acquired from the US that will be provided at the Battalion level to the troops on ground and the hand-operated drones would be used to attain awareness about a specific location or area in their respective areas of responsibility.




The Indian defence forces have been taking these initiatives to acquire weapon systems which can help them in the ongoing conflict with China. The last time such a facility was given to the defence forces was in 2019 right after the Balakot air strikes against terrorist camps in Pakistan.

Using the same facility, the Indian Navy has leased two Predator drones which have been taken from American firm General Atomics.




The Indian Air Force had exercised the same powers to acquire a large number of Hammer air to ground standoff missiles with a strike range of around 70 kilometres.

There is a huge amount of disinformation and propaganda being spread in the name of government and senior officers.

I see this piece as a false hit piece.

The government may decide not to go ahead with another carrier due to cost (and a lack of local deck-based fighter) but to say 'submarines can assault an island' etc. is BS.

But apparently Gen Rawat has said that Subs can assault, don't know whether it's true or not.
