According to the Japanese “diplomats” magazine website reported January 17, India’s military planners have been restructuring the armed forces ready to respond to the combination of China and Pakistan from the threat; and this it is the “cold start”?
reported that the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh may have told Congress last month, he did not think China will attack India act; but the Indian army is not willing to take risks. The world’s second largest army in the January 15 ceremony to celebrate the 64 anniversary of the Army; troops now in its organizational structure and strategic aspects of the cusp of major changes in response to China and its ally Pakistan from a combination of threats. This change in exercise more than five years after the start of the year, the annual exercise has three major attacks in India and one of them branches of a desert corps; has been in operation in the adjustment strategy, and thus can capture the element of surprise in India Pakistan. With this concept, and the junction Pakistani defense forces have been re-designated as “critical” force; by the integration of Combat Team (IBG) enhanced under attack unit management. IBG division-level scale by the military component, including armor, artillery and troops in the attack before the implementation of quick-hit Pakistan Air Force, which is located deep inside India to mobilize convenient.
reported that this is supposed to provide India with the so-called “cold start” choice, with this strategy, IBG will be able to act quickly within 48 hours. Last week, the Indian army chief Singh (VK Singh) General to New Delhi Television (NDTV) announcer explains this concept; though, he repeated his call to avoid “cold start.” He said: “Our goal is to make the military more flexible, more lethal, faster reaction; the same time, the formation of the network can cope with future threats force for this purpose should be to take some specific steps we are looking for one of the one is to re-build our organization into the Army, in combat, so I can confirm this. Indeed, some changes have taken place, because we have already approved the reform; and they will soon be implemented. “
reported that the reform of research conducted under the leadership of Manmohan Singh, he is also the eastern command of the army; it was previously distributed as part of the army, the idea came into effect from 2010. As the “India Times” pointed out, such as “victory” like exercise, you can at short notice, the skilful “lightning war” against vicious enemies. According to article, it is in essence the two enhanced armor-centric. However, in November and December last year conducted a two-month Sudarshan Shakti exercise; not only will this concept a step further, and to India’s war theory has added something new. India’s first successful use of its military satellites and unmanned aerial vehicles, battlefield commanders to provide real-time combat zone images and information. Meanwhile, the military also on the sensor and real-time link between the guns were tested; This information allows commanders and combat personnel in the platform is shared between to make decisions quickly.
reported by the Indian military formation of the largest and most lethal – 21 Army leaders and completed exercises, more than 60,000 soldiers and 300 tanks to participate, while a collection of all the factors including the Air Force; they are done on a single platform. Participate in operations such as the Air Force reported, including Su-30MKI, Jaguar, MiG-27 and MiG-21 fighters, as well as early warning aircraft and helicopters. However, if the “Sudarshan Shakti” exercise is intended to prove that India is Pakistan’s new operational strategy; then, in the past four years, the Indian army in the north and east of the headquarters of a series of changes quietly goal is to make India do good preparation against China. As mentioned earlier, two new mountain military has been deployed in the Chinese border; which makes the eastern headquarters of even more powerful, while allowing the military reserve forces will be reorganized into a more mature formation to counter China.
reported that the reality is that while India has three against Pakistan “attack” or offensive military; it is still a lack of offensive formation against China, is considered the biggest threat to the military. Attacks aimed at the formation of mountain troops (because the Chinese high altitude terrain along the border) of the project plan is currently pending because of the reasons for India’s Ministry of Finance, as the project requires substantial investment, estimated to spend over the next five years, $ 10 billion . However, the Department of Defense and the military headquarters of hope, sooner rather than later to initiate the formation of the formation process. General Singh told reporters: “At the moment, we are faced with the threat of the organization; we are moving in the direction with anti-threat capabilities development over time, we will be fully armed with the ability to resist the threats it has many aspects: For example, what kind of equipment you have standards? you will be what kind of training? you have rapid deployment in different parts of what kind of resources? so these things are now being put into action, while the results from the moment we see, take some time; this not something we can change things overnight. “
reported that the Army last year, as I mentioned in the article after the analysis of the same, the purpose of the recent changes is to enhance the military’s combat capability, this war that is commonly referred to as “two and a half front-line”; This may also confront Pakistan to India and China, and the deployment of counter-insurgency force in the country to provide a reference. So far, four between India and Pakistan, the war between India and China as well as a war is a separate conflict. But Indian strategists believe that the future of China and Pakistan, a close ally of India has launched two joint attack is very high. Therefore, the Indian military may want to have ready. Meanwhile, the military has summed up the future direction of development is to become a rapid mobility and deployment of Scud forces.
reported that, according to an Indian military information, the reform “of the military for a seamless integration of effective, without being rigid ‘command’ constraints.” The report stated: “So far, every Command and the formation of its provisions are to operate within the boundaries of good; the same time, they only have jurisdiction in the area deployed troops and to provide service and this reform is aimed at seeking to break the artificial boundaries of these methods, to minimize the damage, and increase the optimal resource utilization, so in the coming years, the Indian military will ‘headquarters-based’ deployment, to ‘Command commander in chief’ model; ‘front line’ or vanguard in this and ‘depth’ or behind the seamless integration of resources. ”
reported that the most senior officers in favor of such a huge campaign, which will bring enormous challenges and weapons to help hone the necessary formation of a variety of front-line technology. Internal services based on advanced technology collaboration has been rising over the past five years, it has thus become the next war in the Indian army’s main goal; once they succeed, will be under the umbrella of the rapid technology-intensive and short fight.
