Operational Philosophy of the PLAAF

PLAAF’s operational philosophy states that battlefield dominance will depend on an integrated struggle for air, space, information and electro-magnetic superiority. This came about after Chinese military was jolted out of its earlier dependence on mass and size, by the demonstrated predominance of air power in the 1991 Gulf war and the subsequent operations by the Western powers. China realised that a smaller, better equipped force created through improved training, equipped with high-technology stealthy aircraft and an overall capability of rapid response, were essential in modern warfare. As per established principles, air superiority is a prerequisite for victory in war. However, the PLAAF does not assert that achieving absolute air superiority in all stages of combat across all theatres is necessary. Instead, it aims to achieve air superiority to achieve its tactical objectives.

As per established principles, air superiority is a prerequisite for victory in war. However, the PLAAF does not assert that achieving absolute air superiority in all stages of combat across all theatres is necessary.

The PLAAF places primary emphasis on achieving air superiority by attacking the enemy forces, equipment, bases, and launch pads used for air raids whether on land or sea. In the initial stages of a war, the PLAAF will endeavour to attack enemy air bases, ballistic missile bases, aircraft carriers and warships equipped with land-attack cruise missiles before enemy aircraft can take-off or air strike launched by other means. Another means of achieving air superiority will be to carry out attacks to destroy and suppress ground-based air defence systems and air defence command systems. In addition, defensive operations will be an important component of air superiority throughout a campaign.

In future wars, space superiority is expected to be crucial for controlling the ground, naval, and air battlefields. To gain space superiority, offensive and defensive weapon systems will be deployed on the ground, air, sea, and space. Space control operations are likely to include space information warfare, “space blockade warfare,” “space orbit attack warfare,” space-defence warfare, and space-to-land attacks.

In the struggle for information superiority, the goal is to control information on the battlefield, allowing it to be transparent to one’s own side but opaque to the enemy. Methods for achieving information superiority include achieving electromagnetic superiority through electronic interference; achieving network superiority through network attacks; using firepower to destroy the enemy’s information systems and achieving “psychological control”.

The induction of AWACS also allows PLAAF command & control over 100 aircraft. PLAAF can now send 30 aircraft of different types to South China Sea with aerial tankers and AWACS in a possible dispute with Vietnam.

While acquiring electromagnetic superiority is described as a subset of acquiring information superiority, it is treated as a distinct operation. Methods for obtaining electromagnetic superiority include electronic attack and electronic defence. In electronic attack, soft kill measures include electronic interference and electronic deception. Hard kill measures are said to include anti-radiation destruction, electromagnetic weapon attack, firepower destruction, and attacks against the enemy’s electronic installations and systems. Electronic defence is simply defending against enemy electronic and firepower attacks. The primary targets of electronic warfare (EW) include command, control, communications, and intelligence systems. There have been allegations that China has carried out clandestine hacking operations against selected target in the USA, India and other countries in a bid to test its own capabilities in this field.

Chinese military publications identify four types of air force campaigns: air offensive, air defence, air blockade and airborne campaigns. These can be either air force only campaigns or, more frequently, air force–led joint campaigns that incorporate other services. These air force campaigns can also be part of broader joint campaigns, such as an island-landing campaign or joint blockade campaign. In most air operations, a great deal of emphasis is placed on surprise, camouflage, use of tactics, meticulous planning, and strikes against critical targets.


The PLAAF is training and developing tactics to operate nation-wide rather than just within individual military region. In Exercise Red Sword 2008, Su-30MKK, JH-7 and H-6 performed long range strikes with KD-88, KH-59ME, KH-31P and penetration of layers of opposing defence and launched bunker buster KAB-1500 and LGB-250. In fact, PLAAF fired more Russian A2G missiles in this exercise than Russia did in the conflict in Georgia in 2008. The exercise demonstrated that PLAAF’s role has changed from support to ground forces to being able to conduct operations independently. The induction of AWACS also allows PLAAF command & control over 100 aircraft. PLAAF can now send 30 aircraft of different types to South China Sea with aerial tankers and AWACS in a possible dispute with Vietnam. PLAAF aims to form several AF strike groups under the direction of Beijing Military Region for offensive missions. PLAAF is actively trying to imbibe better training programs from the West. It has increased joint training with other air forces in the recent years. In Peace Mission 2007, a JH-7A regiment performed better than a Russian Su-25 in a ground attack exercise. During the past year, PLAAF has held exercises with Turkey and Pakistan. According to some reports, the PLAAF actually fared pretty badly in an exercise with the Turkish Air Force, but learnt some lessons in the process. These are the growing pains it must experience to become a modern air force.

Implications for the IAF

The PLAAF is striving to become the second most powerful air force in the world. Its trajectory so far indicates that this aim will be achieved in the near future. The bleak economic situation in the USA and Europe inhibits Western air forces from spending too much on their military, though with a $ 700 billion defence budget, the USA is still leagues ahead of other countries.

The implications of the growing strength of the PLAAF for the IAF are implicit in what has been stated in this article so far. The PLAAF is clearly sprinting ahead of the IAF. India has yet not articulated a long-term vision for its security and military requirements. Inter-service bickering impede effective jointness, which is the essence of modern warfare. Military acquisitions are done piece-meal service-wise, without any comprehensive, joint threat analysis based on national security imperatives. It is not lack of resources but less than optimum utilisation of the available resources that bedevil India’s military modernisation effort.

…pilot training in the IAF has been disrupted by the grounding of the HAL-built HPT-32 aircraft. The successor to HPT-32 is nowhere in sight and the IAF is scouring the international aviation market for a replacement aircraft.

In the short/medium term the IAF is poised to add 126 Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircraft (MMRCA), over 200 fifth generation T-50 aircraft, two additional AWACS, 10 C-17 heavy lift transport aircraft, 140 medium lift helicopters, 22 attack helicopters and unspecified air defence systems to its arsenal. These accretions will stabilise the IAF to a degree. However, the IAF still has a number of MiG-21 and MiG-27 squadrons in its inventory which need to be replaced. With China rapidly improving its air force and the PAF benefitting from China’s rise, the IAF and the other two services should seriously factor in a two-front conflict situation. An earlier study, still relevant, had concluded that the IAF requires 55 combat squadrons to fight a two-front war. It should be abundantly clear to the political leadership of the nation that in the event of a conflict, China and Pakistan would collude and countries like Russia, USA and the European Union would not intercede. India has to stand on its own but there are many shortcomings in our military capacity and preparedness.

The most glaring deficiency has been the inability of the indigenous industry in supporting the armed forces. India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and the US equivalent Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency(DARPA) were set up in the same year-1958. DARPA has a scientist to support staff ratio of 1.4:1, while the figure for DRDO is 1:5. The DRDO has been bureaucratised and there is no visible accountability. The organisation is into developing and producing ‘Leucoderma Herbal Care’ and mosquito repellent cream while the Kaveri engine project languishes despite huge investments.


The National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL) designed and built the SARAS light transport aircraft with questionable technology resulting in a disaster during a test flight. NAL is persisting with the project but there is resistance from the IAF which lost two test pilots and a test engineer in the mishap. The DRDO has not made any worthwhile contribution to India’s war fighting capability. Their latest claim is about the deployment of the Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) system by 2014 to protect the national capital. The ABM is an expensive system whose effectiveness is, at best, limited. The DRDO should direct its efforts and resources at providing better aircraft and tanks.

Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) is the premier aircraft manufacturing entity in the country. The last indigenous fighter aircraft it designed and produced, and which entered operational service, was the HF-24 Marut. The LCA Tejas is yet to be inducted into the IAF. The LCA Tejas has been unduly delayed and the IAFs Long Term Re-equipment Plans adversely affected by the delay. HAL is now concentrating on licensed production of Su-30MKI and mid-life upgrade of MiG-27 and MiG-21 fleets. It will take up manufacturing of the 126 MMRCA after the vender is finally chosen This MMRCA deal was first mooted in 2000 and it will be 2015 when the IAF will get the first squadron. HAL is also collaborating with Russia in producing the T-50 fifth generation fighter.

Perhaps the unstated objective of the plan is to expand China’s “comprehensive national power” beyond the existing regional status.

What is most disconcerting is that basic pilot training in the IAF has been disrupted by the grounding of the HAL-built HPT-32 aircraft. The successor to HPT-32 is nowhere in sight and the IAF is scouring the international aviation market for a replacement aircraft. The Interim Jet Trainer (IJT) programme has suffered delays due to a variety of reasons including accidents. The overall military aviation industrial scene in the country is not very encouraging. The Defence Public Sector Units(DPSUs) have to be freed from the clutches of bureaucratic control. Despite the high quality of professionals in entities like the HAL, the final decision is taken by a Joint Secretary in the Ministry of Defence Production, and the IAF, the main customer and user has hardly any leverage in the decision-making process. There is a strong case for the private sector entry into defence industry. The IAF needs radars and air defence weapons like SAMs to strengthen our capability along the northern borders which will be the front line of defence in the event of a conflict with China.

The Way Forward

The IAF’s operational philosophy is based on solid foundations honed by the experience gained in the air wars fought from 1947 to Kargil. Our pilot skills and professionalism of the 1,40,000 Air Warriors, are as good as any air force in the world. There is realisation in the decision-making bodies that air power will play a dominant role in future conflicts. The IAF should take the lead in jointness and shed the apprehension that a much larger Indian Army would subsume it in a changed environment.

The fifth generation technology that the IAF is inducting should be matched by an equivalent new generation mindset. An ever growing PLAAF will loom large over the northern borders, with the PAF set to play spoilers in the West. India has to get its act together in facing future challenges. The Indian military in general and the IAF in particular need to study the developing threats and optimise our strategies to meet the challenges ahead.

  1. India is a democratic country with many regional aspirations. After independence in 1947 Nehru was not much interested in Indian armed forces but 1948, 1962, 1965, 1971,1999 wars and also many insurgencies in different parts of India has given importance to armed forces. Problems of armed forces are not of recruitment and training but weapons. India has not developed its own defence industry and importing everything from rifle to jet and now the monster is on the gate who is a manufacturing hub and has just started manufacturing hi-tech weapons and after 10-20 years everyone can imagine China’s power. India should be ready for more problems in the coming years if he is unable to manufacture weapons on a mass scale.

  2. Good article Sir.

    Hope appropriate counter measure shall be taken to neutralize their threat. In this connection, as per recent news , in view of the current tensions with China , new proposal to procure MIG-29, ,Su-30 MKI aircraft are on the table. However, choice of these air crafts instead of the sophisticated Raffle have surprised many critics. While the BVR like Meteor based on Raffle platform can be a game changer in our favour, the Russian platform have been preferred which surprised many critics. The indigenous Astra which is gradually maturing may meet the requirement in future.

  3. They have advanced BVR PL-15 air-to-air missile developed by China’s 607 (Air-to-Air Missile Research Institute), which provided China with a radar-guided range of more than 100 kM and better than R-77 as recognised by US.

    We need such BVR

  4. Sir!
    Chinese had copied & theft modern aircrafts design( Blue print), from U.S. by corrupt practices! For ex. The Stealth aircrafts!
    Also! Russia is helping to strengthen it’s Air Force!

    Whereas! India, involving in R&D, testing prototype & finally production processing with the Centre nod!

  5. There is double threat of China trying to invade India for arunachal and Pakistan will invade India for Kashmir same time. We should increase nuclear arsenal, nuclear submarines as well as better delivery systems for nuclear triad. At the moment there is immediate requirement for 250 advanced fighter jets. We must develop indigenous air power.

  6. Since 1970 , pre 1971 war India has not seen any major shift in modernisations of our Armed Forces. The weapons, ships and Aircrafts acquisitions were the natural progress thereafter. Our National Objectives and Interests took took a back seat or no seat at all over party politics, vote politics and mobocracy. Financial scams like BOFORS and Rafael were highlighted at the cost of modernisations of the Armed Forces and the National Objectives only to dethrone the ruling party. My only appeal to the Political parties are to delink the Financial Scam from acquisition as the scam has nothing to do with the Armed Forces and ask the Govt to advance the acquisitions as two fronts war is a reality today. Once you come to power, you can hang the scamsters, if you are willing. But don’t kill the National interests, by doing this you are definitely playing in the hands of enemies.

  7. India continues to recycle its decade old RFI’s and suffers from analysis paralysis while the dismal state of its armaments keeps falling behind its enemy to the north and west. The make in india program is dying a slow death and a general malaise seems to have invaded the defence department since nirmala sitharaman took over. At the current pace it’s a safe bet to say that prospects for improvement look pretty grim for the next decade as well.

  8. All this fine. INdia needs to get its missiles through their S400 batteries and defense shield and be able to hit every major target in China to DESTROY CHINA. Let us focus on that. especially since it is trying to bottle up India and build CPEC through Indian territory. CPEC must be destroyed by hook or crook.

  9. Hi,

    There is lot of difference between a MI and Apple. Copy wont make you powerful. It makes you less innovative as you are used to copying and always trying to make a less effective variant with same name.

    China just dupes its power. It just has more money like any other country in middle east like soudi who can ourahcse. It can never match any of the europian nation in innovation by ots nature and culture.

    One fine day . USA will bomb chinas biggest aircraft without any reason to kill its confidence morally. Then the true power of china will be just keeping quiet as china knows that they are nothing originally. India is 15% better in self innovatoveness which might have an edge in the next 15 years.

  10. Looking at all the comments from various people it dawns into my mind that India should use a weapon that has not been mentioned by anyone so far.What is it? It is a weapon that will show superiority as it has multiple advantages. Narendra Modi and A.K Doval will know about this. Someone will l inform them about this weapon . I do observe that statistics give superiority of China over India so obviously but the experience of A K Doval will greatly bring good result for India. No need to say one more Mumbai……..Insecurity is India’s greatest enemy. As a medical laboratory scientific officer i did not keep it a secret to help my manager to successfully present his lecture in USA on heart attack.On matters concerning security of motherland one has to keep a secret Use such a weapon with fantastic results.

  11. Nice detail Article. Don’t forget Chinese also build under ground air force base which can also with stand nuclear strike. While ever body know about our cheap air base which easily attack by rooky terrorist with Ak47. Last time you listen same thing happen with Chinese. This problem of this country our govt feel with thugs and dump. Our people are voting for them in name of reservation quota, Chicken and Rum…

  12. I think china is far ahead from Indian air force because Indian air force depend on purchased aircraft but china has own made & similar to Russia & USA.China is a peaceful country never disrespect his weaker neighbor but India do that.In modern world religion is not issue to fight each other.That’s past now but Indian politics still stack there,that’s why still far behind others country like India.

    • China is copying and improving. The still lack of their own turbofan engines. India must rely in the same policy. I understand it took a lot of time to develop the HAL TEJAS and its systems, hence India must copy and improve. You dont need to invent sugared water, you must find the easiest way to do it and in the process give that a better taste.

  13. Very candid and clear article. In addition to the psychological inspiration, one should also back up with building actual capabilities to produce war-fighting equipment like small and large arms, ships, submarines and tanks, fighters and missiles, SAMs as well as supporting electronic systems (radars, AEW, RWR, SONAR, Fire-control radars, Avionics, precision machining, secure communication and spying equipment, night goggles, thermal wear and winter scooters for army). China took license production of Russian fighters, helos & subs and gradually started building their own and today, their equipment is the lowest cost yet competes with Russian and European (if not US) equipment in performance. They built not only advanced jets like copies of Sukhoi-27, helicopters, Apache attack copter, Hercules transport plane but also AEW planes, refueling crafts, Tu-14 maritime planes as well as carrier-based marine fighters. Its remarkable and India should adopt similar route with latest designs and equipment of Russia, France and Germany which it can procure co-production licenses from. India is actually lagging 20 years behind China and the sole culprit in this is HAL-DRDO entity. It is frightening that in event of China-Pakistan joint attack, India has only 10 days of arms to last and what after that? Colonization by China or give away Arunachal & Himachal, Northern UP to them? Its a real shame that India says we are producing lakhs of engineers per year but whats the real capability built for any precision equipment – radars, Electronics, Computer chips, Smart phones, Water & waste Management technologies, Ships/Submarines, jets – Zero. Everyone wants to earn money and get a cushy job, that’s all. India is far, far behind and will need 20 years to catch up.

  14. it was same for us,but sorry to say 80% of population don’t even know the real situation of our defence capability, china is our main enemy but sorry to say their defence is light years ahead of us.and for china they don’t have worry about us because they make pakistan to engaged us with. we always act like a looser from 47 ,62,65,71, 98 .now its upto modi goverment to save india from complete destruction.i still think what would happen if chaina and pakistan attacked us jointly. jago india jago

  15. Reading this article brought pain to me as I happen to be an Indian staring at the muscle China displays across the border. True, China’s economy supported this. And, government of India spruced up ‘Babudom’ to downplay military requirements! It would be good if our political leaders are less visible in TV and engage in listening to men at work.

  16. Excellent, informative work. Thank you sir. I am an ordinary man
    . Have interest our great nations progress. This type of essays
    give inside knowledge of our defense sector to people like me. Thinking
    u sir.

  17. It is a pity and shortsightedness of congress led governments over the last many decades that we have overlooked the development of our industry and defence establishment.

    We had excellent chance to recruit the CIS / Russian scientists or buy out the entire defence industries of Russia. The only duty our foreign ambassadors and consulates performed was to help the politicians convert black money to white or to help their family during their yearly travels abroad.

    Our politicians were happy to allow some small time businessmen to buy out companies like TATRA and take kickbacks on trucks bought from them. Why we could not prop a PPP company to take over defence manufacturing companies.

    China has been buying companies all over the world. from defence, aerospace and oil. where as our congress friends were busy selling out our national assets and companies at throw away prices to foreigners.

    we could have easily imputed the Sukhoi technology by hiring out or buying out the companies producing the engines, frame, and various parts.

    Well it is never too late. Hope the BJP government take action and starts acquiring such technologies and companies.

    We should buy out companies abroad and produce the equipment abroad while slowly transferring the knowledge and technology to our benefit.

  18. The balancing act with modernisation of the Inadian Air Force should be done at lightening speed. Else we shall be again at the mercy of Either Vhina or Pakistan. Remember those who forget the history are condemned to meet. Congress could not equip the force well to fight with even Pakistan. We were humiliated to learn about ourselves as weak and subjugated country. Now , who shall protect us from ISIS/Al Qaeda/SIMI etc. Who will give us the esteem and self respect to an Indian

  19. “The new aircraft displays stealth features and indicates a determination on China’s part to shape new military capabilities in the period ahead. China is determined in developing modern military aerospace capabilities.” ” – “Stealth features” – what does that mean technologically? A layer of “radar absorbing material” , also called RAM – not the memory in computer technology, like paint spread on the body of the aircraft for reducing reflectivity, is a dubious, unsubstantiated procedure since no one knows how much reflectivity can be reduced thereby beyond 5%, but very effective for a sales pitch. In any case the sensitivity of radar warning receivers (RWRs) are improving each year by incremental advances in technology to completely offset such “stealth” factor. Hopefully IAF will not be gullible for swallowing such scientific jargons. The only case which comes in question is the F-16s which have by some strange coincidence of design of the airframe very much reduced radar cross sections compared to other fighter-interceptors. But that is not so-called “stealth”. In any case F-16s are tiny compared to Sukhois as platforms.

      • I have picked only one point (“stealth bombers and such attack air aircrafts” ) where I believe the writer is completely confused in understanding what “stealth” technology is. Hence his assessment of PLAAF in the context of “stealth” capability has gone astray. IAF should not worry about possession of “stealth” technology by PLAAF. For the rest of the article, it makes sense to me as a general evaluation. But no one can make a better point here as the writer has done, since there are so many unknown factors in judging PLAAF by a foreign power. Military capability is always a matter of conjecture by military intelligence. But in my view the author is overestimating Chinese air power vis a vis IAF’s capability.

        • @shankar, I think you are confused about the stealth tech. Have ever heard about F-117 or B-2 spirit. Those are stealth fighter and bomber. F 16 is not stealth who told you ? Chinese wants to achieve that. And India must worry about china’s growing militery power.

          • Could you please explain what is your understanding of “stealth” – is it invisibility to radar receiver system? Just claiming F-117 or B-2 is “stealth” as in glossy brochures for sales purpose does not make the aircraft stealth from technological viewpoint. When you are flying in the sky, even if you switch off your radar sets to make yourself invisible to radar warning receivers, you cannot turn off your engine. Hence the heat of combustion in your engine will generate an infra-red signature for the machine, and hence you are always detectible to the enemy.

          • Further to my response below I should add that I have come across the feature “stealth” in the context of AES technology. But that refers to jamming capability of AES arrays in addition to tracking and target resolutions etc. Such jamming occurs in a very narrow window of (usually) the X band. and cannot be considered as “indefectibility” of the fighter in the wider sense. To my information missile launchers use the K band.

  20. it is unfortunate that we Indians continue to suffer from the inferiority complex and lack of confidence in our own military strength and capability. While the hostile Chnese-Pak combined strategic military threat against India may pose danger on the face value, yet India’s own army, navy and air force strength should not be under-estimated, considering all the plus and minus points. It is not the number of fighter aircraft and other allied infrastructure which may have superiority over the India’s strategic military build up, yet going by the popular saying that it is the man behind the machine which matters in a war.

  21. Stop imagining things which are not even close to truth. Russians scientist were gonner before they could effectively develop anything worthwhile like an engine or electronics. Chinese rely most of their new publicity demos of planes on stolen technology; which is less than proficient. Everything worthwhile which gives the Chinese airforce teeth is a direct copy of Russian original. It’s combat capability is yet to be established, not by Chinese , but by airforces which fell in the trap of cheap stuff from China. One of these days the Chinese built and Pakistani design JF -17 is going to fly against India or if Saudi Arabian buy these copies then fly against the Israelis, then we would know capability of Chinese made planes. I guarantee they would be exactly like 100 Chinese locomotives bought by the Pakistanis only to breakdown shortly after being pressed into service, not one or two but all of them. Diesel / electric locomotives are easier to make than planes.

    This is purely scare tactics.

  22. This jumps the gun somewhat. The question should be whether India is prepared for ANY war or even a light skirmish that turns into a war becuase of India’s lack of readiness. One remembers, with shame, that the IAF withdrew from Kargil after one aircraft and one helicopter were downed for the lack of anti SAM decoys. Not that decoys would have helped when the Indin ovt, acting at US behest, forbade the Air Force from trespassing over Paki air space. China and Pakistan are manufacturing fighters jointly and Pakistan has just inducted 40 of them into its air force while India continues to wait for a Godot called the Light Combat Aircraft. Pakistan exports trainers it makes to Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Iran while India is still trying to figure out what trainer to import. China has inducted indigenous aircraft onto it Ukrainian carrier while India’s obsolete, carcinogenic, financial black hole, the Admiral Gorshkov can’t even carry a comparable aircraft. Sil vis pacum para bellum. BUT, India’s effete, Netas are there because of corruption and Babus because of their caste certificates. They might be excused for wondering why India needs ammunition or anti SAM flares, or armour on its ships to march up and down Raisina Hill, open and shut doors for them and ferry them on election campaigns.

  23. Sir

    Impression I get from your paper is that bulk of Chinese airforce is still copies of MIG-19 and MIG-21 and few TU bombers. The recently acquired SU -27 are not there in large numbers. The bulk of SU-27 is on order and a few hundreds will join in about 5 years, because it takes time to acquire design and converting them into actual planes. They have about a hundred of SU-30mkk, which is improved SU-27.

    Their stealth fighter are for intimidation. These bear a strong resemblance to American F- 35. Read in between the lines that it is a stolen copy. Americans are yet to solve all the problems with their F-35, hence I am not expecting Chinese solve all the problems in one fell swoop.

    The key question is which is not answered in your paper Sir, that how many of the fighters could be deployed against India from Tibet. That is where threat to India lies. Moreover for Chinese manning everything facing Taiwan, Japan, US Seventh Fleet, Korea Vietnam is a difficult question. Their Airforce is carefully deployed to face these adversaries, hence cannot be withdrawn.

    If I am reading the news items in press in last two or three years, India can deal with all their MIG-19 and 21. India can match their SU- 27 very we’ll. I am not overly concerned with their stealth fighters as it is for publicity and occasional flight to intimidate the American, Taiwanese and Japanese.

  24. I am sukhman bir singh and i am 10 year old now. I studying in England Iam going to be a great engenre Iam going to make figter jet ,aircaraft carrer and lot,s more to help the my indian forces and my great indian county.I have to defend this nation

    We the people of INDIA from west bengal want to say you that some very very dangerous groups want to kill many poor indians for MONEY if they cannot afford to pay as demanded by the blackmaillers.Also the blackmaillers kill a lot of people for fear of being DISCLOSE this torchering techniques……….
    They use the techniques called BRAIN TO BRAIN COMMUNICATION as well as MIND to MIND COMMUNICATION.The blackmaillers agents are so trained that they INDUCE SOMETHING into your brain and you will be AUTOMATICALLY connected with the blackmaillers head as well as their desktops.
    Without your knowing when you think in your OWN MIND all your thinking will be transferred into those blackmaillers desktops.Then you will be TORCHERED like SLAVEs to tell all about your SECRETS as well as your parent’s money which is deposited.There will be NO OTHER WAY expect telling everything.
    In this head to head communication techniques or mind to mind communication devices like telephone is not needed.You will be able to communicate with those blackmaillers in SPEAKING IN YOUR MIND,I REPEAT SPEAKING IN YOUR MIND only…………
    How they control your mind i do not know.All your NERVIOUS SYSTEM will be fully controlled by those bustard blackmaillers.They are master in misguiding also.Sometimes horrible graphics will be presented into your MIND and many more deadly graphics………..You have no other way expect watching them.They can also make you STAMMERER by pressing particular region into your brain from far remote area.
    RESPECTED SIR,I am now in some GOOD blackmaillers hand who want to SAVE MY LIFE and are NO MORE INTERESTED in this torchering techniques.The previous gang of blackmaillers and their bossess want to KILL us.
    The new blackmaillers want to get rid of this INHUMAN ACTIVITIES and want to DELIVERED this technology in the hand of our INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES.And using this tech they will be able to EXTRACT all the data from bustard”s criminals without other’s knowings……..
    I were in the hand of those previous blackmaillers nearly two years though i am 1000% innocent.The previous blackmaillers want to capture my parent’s WEALTH in this way (as i know with the help of these newcomer group).Some gangs are operating from kolkata……So you can imagine how many gangs are operating from india.
    A lot of persons are CAPTIVATED like me.There are certainlly be more gangs all over india and many persons had lost their all including their LIVES………
    So RESPECTED SIR,my duty is to make aware about this menance so that all the helpless indians become free.
    So sir, please SECRETLLY investigate about this matter SERIOUSLY AS QUICK AS POSSIBLE and arrest those BOSSESS AND THEIR GANGS……….
    And you are the backbone of our country so please inquire about this matter as quick as possible and arrest those bustards blackmaillers…………

  27. All data In this article are true. Chinese Air force is at least three times stronger than India. Yes , it is a bitter fact. Indian government is still sleeping. Just buying few pieces from foreign country does not make country strong. There are more than ten factories of size of HAL in China and many smalls which India do not have.

  28. Are we good enough to tacel china. purchasinng of new air crafrt is delay.
    i . buying modren weapons are much delay Artriley guns many more . why are they so delay I think production sumki30 must be in speed . number should should be about 300+ till new air craft arrives. what elese we can do.

  29. If there is a 55% possibility, that pilots may not make it, then it is not a good omen for any service, military, in any nation. I mean, that 55% drop out of training. The I. A. F. is the arm, where people are thought to be scientists, as they monitor their aircraft when flying, at difficult situations. It seems, the Air Force personnel have always be seen thus.

  30. I wish the politicians from Indian central govt and top IAF brass reads this article to come to terms with the real status of the so-called superpower airforce. While IAF is adding aircraft piece by piece, it is at best haphazardly added in chunks. The Chinese industry has been able to reverse engineer and improve on Russian planes to the extent that Russia is skeptical of giving them Su-35/Su-33 for fear of being copied. All this while the Indian defence production keeps on failing and failing while running huge, I mean huge defence companies like DRDO, BEL, BDL, HAL etc. These monstrous companies take thousands of crores of precious taxpayer money but not returning value in return to the country. DRDO’s failed projects include Kaveri engine for LCA, LCA project itself (which hasnt replaced 250+ Mig-21s after 30-35 years), LCA being rejected due to being obsolete, Arjun MBT (IA didn’t like it), and various missiles like Akash SAM, Nag ATM and it also has been unable to produce high speed scooters and snow gear for IA in Siachen. HAL is at the best a screw-driver shop which takes russian kits and assembles them piece by piece and tries to look like a Boeing or Northrop Grummman. These giants should be criminally prosecuted and their exec mgmt of last 40 years imprisoned for lying to the people and taking taxpayer salaries. Shamefully our poor IAF people barely fly their planes due to lack of spares and servicing thus lack real flying experience and the migs keep crashing more than new planes are added. Chinese have built their own planes and save foreign exchange also. If India could come up with private companies to build a cheal, lightweight fighter and then go on for multirole planes, it would be a start. The Indian navy has however been very progressive and builds large destroyers of their own unlike the IA and IAF. HAL, DRDO etc should be shut down and their mgmt of last 50 yrs sent to jail forever to teach them lesson how not to cheat poor Indian taxpayers.

  31. Thanks for this eye-opening expose.

    If India or Japan and/or USA do not neutralize China by 2020, there will be no putting the genie back in the bottle. By 2050, China could have the defense equivalent of 100,000 additional fighter aircraft compared to India.
