  • Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauri asserted that the Indian Air Force (IAF) is ready for a two-front war.
  • Over the last couple of months, India has been facing off against China as well as Pakistan along its northern borders.
  • “The IAF is well-positioned to take on China across all theatres,” said the IAF chief.
Amid rising tensions with China along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) and Pakistan’s repeated ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC), Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria asserts that the Indian Air Force (IAF) is ready for a two-front war.


“The IAF is ready for any possible conflict, including a two-front war,” he said during a press briefing ahead of the National Air Force day 2020 on October 8.

“The IAF is well positioned to take on China across all theatres,” Bhadauria added. According to him, the recent addition of the Rafale fighter jet into the Indian Armed Forces’ arsenal gives India an edge over its adversaries.


“We have operationalised the recently acquired Rafales, Chinooks and Apaches in record time,” said the IAF chief.

He also highlighted that Hindustan Aeronautics Limited’s (HAL) Advanced Medium Combat Aircraft (AMCA) will remain the IAF’s ‘mainstay’ for at least the next decade or so. “Processes have been set of 6th generation technologies like directed energy, swarm drones, hypersonic weapons and others,” Bhadauri explained.


According to him, the IAF’s position as a credible combat-ready force is critical towards ensuring victory in any future conflict. Last week, Bhadauri also indicated that India’s northern frontiers’ precarious situation is currently ‘uneasy,’ giving it a ‘no war, no peace’ status.
