China military: Indian defense website analysis of 14 published a long article details the development of the PLA air force, called the speed and scale far beyond India, especially in recent years, the introduction of the Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS), the People's Liberation Army Air Force command and control 100 simultaneously planes, and in the air tanker support, it can be a potential outbreak of the Vietnam conflict, the South sent 30 different types of aircraft.
Indian media said the PLA Air Force attaches great importance to attacks by enemy forces, equipment, land and air attack base and launch pad. In the initial stages of the war. PLA Air Force will try to attack enemy air bases, missile bases, aircraft carriers and warships equipped with land-attack cruise missiles to prevent enemy aircraft taking off will be air launched by other means. Another method is to obtain air superiority, to launch attacks, destruction and repression to land-based air defense systems and air defense command system. In addition, defensive action is an important part of air superiority campaign.
Indian media said the Chinese military publications identified four Air Force Battle: air attack, air defense, air blockade and airborne battle. These may be only the Air Force campaign, but more likely the Air Force leadership, including other units of the joint campaign. The air campaign may be part of a broader joint campaign, such as landing or combined blockade of the island war. In most air operations, the focus is often the raid, camouflage, tactical use, careful planning and the fight against critical targets.
Indian media said that the PLA Air Force is developing fighters in action across the country, not just within a single military. An exercise in 2008, the Su-30MKK, JH-7 and H-6 and KD-88, KH-59ME, KH-31P remote attacks, through the other layers of defense and fired KAB-1500 and LGB -250 air guided missiles. In fact, the PLA Air Force in the exercise of the Russian A2G missile launch, even more than the number of 2008 conflict between Russia and Georgia in the amount emitted. Exercise shows that the role of the PLA Air Force has shifted from support for ground forces to conduct operations independently. The introduction of the PLA Air Force Airborne Warning and Control system, command and control more than 100 aircraft. People's Liberation Army Air Force can now send 30 different types of aircraft, and refueling and AWACS to the South China Sea, Vietnam's response may be related to a dispute arise. People's Liberation Army Air Force's goal is the formation of several Air Force combat group, led directly by the Beijing Military Region, attack mission. The Air Force is actively trying to introduce better training from the West project. In recent years, the Air Force has increased with other Air Force conducted a joint training. In the "Peace Mission 2007" in, JH-7A attack aircraft in the area of exercise is better than the Russian Su-25 performance. Last year, the People's Liberation Army Air Force with Turkey and Pakistan in the exercise. According to some reports that the PLA Air Force and Turkish Air Force exercise was not successful, but also learned some lessons. This is China's growth as a modern air force must go through the pain.
Indian media said that the PLA Air Force is trying to grow into the world's second powerful air force. Current trends indicate that this goal can be reached in the near future. U.S. and European economies, the Western military air force can not be too much investment. However, the U.S. defense budget of $ 700 billion, still far ahead of other nations. Growing strength of the PLA Air Force, Indian Air Force will obviously impact. Significantly ahead of the PLA Air Force, Indian Air Force. Indian Air Force has not developed long-term security and military needs. Differences impede effective joint forces, and effective joint is precisely an important part of modern warfare. Military procurement has not taken into account the overall national security issues, joint threat analysis. This is not a lack of resources, but can not optimize use of available resources, which is not conducive to the modernization of the Indian military action.
Indian media said, from the recent mid-term point of view, the Indian Air Force will be an increase of 126 medium multi-role fighter, more than 200 fifth-generation T-50 aircraft, two airborne early warning aircraft, 10 C-17 heavy transport aircraft, 140 medium transport helicopters, 22 attack helicopters and an unknown number of air defense systems. These materials increase the degree of stability in the Indian Air Force. However, there is still a large number of Indian Air Force MiG-21 and MiG-27 aircraft, which are to be replaced. As China rapidly improve the Air Force, Pakistan Air Force to benefit from China's rise a lot, so the Indian Air Force and other military conflict should seriously consider the case of two lines. Previous research has reported that the Indian Air Force combat squadrons need to hit 55 two-line war. India's political leaders should be fully taken into account, after the conflict, China may jointly with Pakistan, and Russia, the United States and the EU may not intervene. India must stand, but the ability and readiness of the Indian army has many deficiencies.
Indian media said, India's biggest weakness is in support of the armed forces of the local industrial instability. India's Defense Research and Development Organization and the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency was established in the same year - 1958. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, researchers and support staff ratio of 1.4:1, while India's Defense Research and Development 1:5, has been bureaucratic, there is no clear responsibility. The organization is developing and manufacturing the product does not matter, but has a lot of investment, "Caffrey" engine project is almost deserted. India's National Aerospace Laboratory facilities and construction of a light transport aircraft SARAS, but there are technical problems, leading to flight when the disaster. National Aerospace Laboratory is continuing the project, but faces resistance from the Indian Air Force. Indian Air Force lost in an accident more than two test pilot and a test engineer. Defence Research and Development capability in India did not make any valuable contribution. They recently released a statement saying that 2014 will deploy anti-ballistic missile system to protect the national capital. ABM is an expensive system, but of limited effectiveness. Defence Research and Development (OECD) should be adjusted to the direction of action and resources to provide better aircraft and tanks.
Indian media said the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited is India's leading aircraft manufacturers, the company's latest design and referred to the domestic fighter is HF-24 "Fengshen", is now in service. Indian Air Force will also introduce LCA "brilliant" fighter. LCA "glorious" has been seriously delayed, the Indian Air Force's "long-term re-equipment plan" has been delayed adverse effects. Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd is now licensed production of Su Russia-30MKI, MiG-27 and MiG-21s and mid-term fleet upgrade. Hindustan Aeronautics Limited will manufacture more than 126 medium multi-role fighter. Medium-sized multi-purpose fighter deal was first proposed in 2000, the Air Force to get the first squadron, will have to wait until 2015. Hindustan Aeronautics Limited and Russia are the joint production T-50 fifth generation fighter.
Indian media said the most disturbing, because built by Hindustan HPT-32 aircraft stranded, Indian Air Force pilot training base was interrupted. HPT-32 aircraft in the distant future successor, the Indian Air Force is seeking an alternative to the international aviation aircraft market. For various reasons, including accidents, the transition jet trainer project was postponed. India's overall military aviation industry prospects are not very optimistic. Indian defense public sector must be freed from bureaucratic control. Although India's Hindustan Aeronautics Limited and other companies have high-quality professionals, but the final decision was made jointly by the Department of Defense secretly long to make the product, the Indian Air Force as the main customers and users, is almost impossible to play a role in the decision-making process. Difficult to enter the private sector defense industry. Indian Air Force need to air missiles and other air defense radar and weapons, to strengthen capacity at the northern border, if a conflict with China, there will be a defensive front.
Indian media said the Indian Air Force's combat has a solid theoretical foundation, and get through the hardships of combat experience. Air India 140 000 soldiers of the skills and professional standards not inferior to any world air force. Decision-making bodies recognize that air power will play a leading role in future conflicts. Indian Air Force should play a representative role in the joint, the Army abandoned the greater victory in the concept of a changing environment. Indian Air Force's fifth generation technology should be appropriate to adapt to a new generation of thinking. People's Liberation Army Air Force growing more powerful in the Chinese border, the Pakistan Air Force will be waiting in the wings in the west. India must be unity of action, to face future challenges. Indian army, especially the Air Force, need to study the changing threat, optimization strategies to meet the challenges ahead.
