India’s air-launched Brahmos missile can hit China Air Force strategic objectives
Data Figure: India and Russia jointly developed the BrahMos cruise missile.
LONDON: “Reference News” published on November 8, “Canadian Journal analysis of the Indian Air Force to deploy,” BrahMos “missile attack on China, the Indian Army background strategy” to practice “,” the article, The following is the main content of the article:
senior Indian defense industry official said: Indian Air Force was signed in March to buy the “Brahmos” ground to ground missiles multi-protocol. This seems to support the world’s first large-scale Air Force ordered ground to ground missiles, which means multiple meanings.
first from the Air Force strategic development of the basic theoretical analysis, due to the development needs of information warfare, navy and air force or army integration of countries in the 21st century Air Force is the overall trends, these trends include the Navy, Army using an integrated, integration of tactical data link. Second, the Air Force mission has been diversified, and the operations of regional development, extending to the fifth space (low) and broad space for this reason, air and space forces has emerged, Russia, the U.S. military has been assigned to the Air Force air and space management, Air Force combat , is no longer a combat between fighter, but the fight for the “right to control satellite” and other battles. Second, the Air Force’s low altitude of the Air Force is the trend in some countries, which means that the future air-ground integrated operations will be another trend.
the other hand, “The Air Force independent of the completion strategy of the mission” capability is more and more attention. Chinese paratroopers assigned to the Air Force, Indian Air Force to deploy “Brahmos” ground to ground missiles motivation is based on the strategic battle independently mission needs.
from real sense, the Indian Air Force as a first time with the world’s first air-ground cruise missiles, we can see its China, Pakistan to implement the strategic offensive operations theory to practice has been . Indian army has been in the Joint Chiefs of Staff level, made in 2009 while winning for China, Pakistan to prepare two wars requirements.
What is the Indian Air Force offensive strategy in China? Received from the Indian Air Force “Brahmos” ground to ground missiles and in the distance, the eastern border and India less than 30 km Jabara Air Force Su-30MKI fighter jets are ready to deploy base move can be seen two. That is in war, first hit, China will quickly bring depth to the front, so the Air Force can use the front of the border deployment of Jabara Airport Su-30MKI multi-role fighter to expand the depth of China, Tibet region , Qinghai, Gansu, Yunnan and other second-tier airport attack. Subsequently, the Air Force along with the Army while advancing to a range of 300 kilometers, “Brahmos” cruise missiles against China’s airports, radar stations, air force facilities. The same tactics apply to the western border between India and Pakistan.
second operational mode is the first in the war – attack the process, deployed in the border of the “Brahmos” cruise missiles to attack the Chinese Air Force strategic objectives, will be the depth of the various boundary Qian Jin radar, signal intelligence monitoring base, weather station, so as Daxia the eyes of the Chinese Air Force.
the combat missions, have been the first in the war – attack the process, should the Army’s “Brahmos” ground to ground missiles or strategic missile forces, “fire” Ⅱ and other to-surface missiles to completed, why the air force “Brahmos”? This is to strengthen the independence of the Indian Air Force to implement the strategic strength of a decisive battle. At the same time aware of the Indian army attack the opponent’s strategic role in the Air Force, so the first implementation of the enemy air force C41SR surface-precision strike systems.
than that, the Indian Air Force is the world’s first ballistic missile ground-support equipment, the Air Force, the famous “Earth” – Ⅱ (SS-250, warhead weight 500 kg) in series to lead, playing there is the Air Force model, a range of 250 kilometers, based on the same operational theory, and even the existence of such missiles the Navy model, which means that the Indian Navy to be the same strategic mission of the task independently.
in combat, the Air Force’s SS-250 and the “BrahMos” distribution of tasks may be, the former main airport, radar, electronic intelligence-gathering station targets a wide range of anti-sexual assault. While the latter is the main goal of precision strikes. Therefore, the use of different warheads. Naturally, the Air Force models do not rule out the “BrahMos” and ss -250 are equipped with the possibility of nuclear warheads, so in the war, nuclear containment ashamed to play with.
be sure: Air Force-type “Brahmos” surface-to-air combat will be the enemy of their own choosing Air Force strategic objectives. In this way, the Army-type “Brahmos” will focus more attention dedicated to combating the Army strategic objectives.
updated by the latest developments in the equipment can be seen, the Indian Air Force attaches great importance to integration of air and sea operations, but also attach great importance to the Air Force battle strategy independently, the depth of the implementation of active combat, fast forward to the outside combat operational thinking.
