New Delhi :
Air Chief V.R. Choudhary said on Thursday that the current geo-political situation requires the Indian Air Force to be prepared for rapid and short duration operations in a short period of time. Air Chief Marshal Chaudhry told a conference that the force would need to be prepared to deal with short duration wars and prolonged standoffs like in eastern Ladakh.
He said that the recent experience of the Indian Air Force and the geopolitical scenario emphasize the need for us to be operationally and logistically prepared at all times. “The current geo-political situation requires the Indian Air Force to be prepared for rapid and short duration operations in a short span of time. The new approach to high-intensity operations in the shortest possible time would require major changes in operational logistics.
On India’s security challenges along the northern borders, Air Chief Marshal Chowdhury said that the Indian Air Force needs to be prepared for all possible security challenges. “Across the continuum of force, space and time, we have to be prepared for short-term wars as well as longer-lasting standoffs like what we are seeing in eastern Ladakh,” he said. There will also be a need to live.
The Air Force chief said such missions would require “resources mobilization” and making their transportation possible. There is also a need to develop a focused action plan for indigenization of critical components to achieve the country’s vision of ‘Self-reliant India’, he said.
Air Chief Marshal Chaudhry said that logistics has been recognized as an important medium for the economic progress of the country. “It has been recognized as an important component of ease of doing business and making Indian supply chains globally competitive,” he said.
