Assuming we have to prepare for war in next 2 months, I was wondering what do we need urgently.


We can imports some stuff from USA. USA has huge military industrial Complex and “if it wants” then it can supply us war equipment. Though they will charge for it but FMS system makes the issue of price less controversial.


With Russia the fear is that they will Gently delay the arrival of emergency stuff for few months to let the Chinese Consolidate.

So the Equipment we can try to Get from USA Can be:-

General


Satellite pictures, SIGINT, COMINT, ELINT on movement of Chinese forces

3D Maps of the Terrain

UCAVs like Predator, Reaper with Hellfire missiles



Army

Welfare


Tents

Winter Clothing

Snow Scooters, Snow Ploughs, Snow Tracked Trucks

NVDs, Thermal Imagers, Observation telescopes, Binoculars

Satellite Phones

I am presuming that we have adequate routine stuff like medical supplies and ordinary trucks for logistics

Small Arms

Optics, laser pointers, red dot sights for small arms

Silenced Carbines

M16A4 with optical scopes

GPMGs, HMGs, AGLs

Ballistic Computes for Sniper Rifles

Sniper rifles, AMRs


Medium Weapons

Carl Gustafs & Ammo

RPGs

Radio Guided TOW

Javelins (Russian Kornet E, Israeli Spikes)

Stinger Manpads



Heavy Weapons

M777s

Excalibur 155mm Shells

GPS fuses for converting normal 155 shells & 120mm Mortars into PGMs

Truck mounted Guided MBRLs


I am assuming that we have adequate number of 81mm, 120mm mortars and ordinary shells & Ammo stocked up


IAF

Apache with Hellfire missiles, CH-47s alongwith with DIRCMs, Jammers etc

Escort and Self Protection Jammers for Jaguars

ASRAAMs for Mirage and Jaguars

JSOW, JASSM, Paveways LGBs, CBU-105 to fired by Jaguars & Mirage

While we may want lot of stuff from USA but it will be difficult to induct in short time. So I have noted items which we can be inducted and used on the fly. Jaguar & Mirage 2000 are NATO platforms and it should be easy to integrate weapons with it quickly

Note – I have intentionally left out AMRAAMs as I have doubt that it will be given or can be integrated quickly. Though 100 Second hand F-16s with AMRAAMs C-9s can be game changer, but such induction will take atleast 2 years.

Navy

Airlaunched Harpoons for Jaguars, Helos and P-8s

Torpedoes for Submarines

ASRAAMs for Mig-29Ns

What are the Urgent things we Require from OFB-DPSU-Pvt Sector ??


Army

Welfare


Tents, construction material

Winter Clothing

Satellite Phones

Small Arms

Optics, laser pointers, red dot sights for small arms

Silenced Carbines

GPMGs, HMGs

Ballistic Computes for Sniper Rifles

Sniper rifles, AMRs


Medium Weapons

Carl Gustafs & Ammo

Indigeous ATGMs



Heavy Weapons

Hopefully Kalyani ULH 155mm will be ordered. If this thing drags on then it will be useful

Guided Pinaka, Prahaar, Pralay, Nag & Namica if the face off drags beyond a year


IAF

Making existing LCA fully ready for war

Astra Missiles (to stock up when the imported missiles run out, in case of intense war)

What are the Urgent things we need from Other Nations Like Israel & Taiwan??
