India ready to deal with any two-front threat scenario: IAF chief
NEW DELHI: Indian Air Force chief VR Chaudhari on Tuesday said that India is prepared to deal with any two-front threat scenario, referring to the danger posed by China and Pakistan along its borders.
Addressing the media on the 89th anniversary of the force, the Air Chief Marshal said the Chinese air force is present across the Line of Actual Control (LAC) but India too is fully prepared.
"The situation on the Line of Actual Control is that the Chinese Air Force is still present on three air bases on their side of the LAC. We are fully deployed and prepared on our side," he said.
He said that while India's strike capability along the LAC has been bolstered with the induction of Rafale fighter jets
He added that the IAF is in the process of acquiring new combat sy ems to retain an edge over our adversaries.
"The induction of Rafale, Apaches have significantly added to our combat pential. Our offensive strike capability has become even more pent with the integration of new wons on our fleets," he said.
Chaudhari took charge as the Chief of Air Staff from Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria on September 30, 2021.
An ace fighter pilot, he was earlier in charge of the Ladakh sector during the peak of the crisis with China.
Dealing with internal cancer of Khangress is equally crucial. Khangress requires chemotherapy.
Well done Indian army. Well done modi go nment.
wat a joke
First India need to deal with the internal threat from the Farmers who are at war with the go nment.
Way too much bravado. Stop talking and start working sincerely including getting rid of junk MIGs. The whole world know show weak India is. Don't make a fool of yourself by giving such idiotic statements,
how? we have 32 squadrons when we need at least 42 or even more.
modi bought 36 planes from France and Ambani got 50,000 crores kickback.
for a two front war we need at least 60 squadrons, not 32 squadrons. we also need a bigger army.
they can talk on Media but when actual fight gets on they will shoot their own helicopters & planes.
IAF is still stuck with the junk 2nd generation MIGs and this fellow talks of fighting a 2 front war. The world laughs at such juvenile comments. Our enemies have much better fighter jets and only 1 is sufficient to show IAF its place let alone 2 front wars.
The IAF chief is a liar. Our aircraft are outdated. Pakistan has got F-16 from CHRISTIAN DEVILS of America and China has also given them many latest aircraft. Under modi no one is hel us despite Modi being the BROWN SKIN GHULAM of Chr tian de ls of America.
with less than 20 rafales how can you talk so loud sir? china has j17 and bombers with s400s, rn India is under threat.
Classic Modi syndrome, statements change everyday.
I know in case of war Modi will abandon us and runaway to UAE!!!
It reminds me of the former Afghan Presi nt Ashraf Ghani who once famously said that he would 'fight to death' the night before he fled Afghanistan. So, instead of uttering nonsense, Feku should focus on LAC.
Win or loss we always stand by our armed forces … but over confidence and retorics is not our culture ! We have 8 rafiel jets till now … china has parked over 300 fighters just at our border ! This is the time to quietly build our defences and not to be showing off
IAF and fighter jets role will be limited if china deploys S-400 in border areas. Even F35 is trackable to s-400
