India’s ‘Surgical Strike’ in Pakistan

“[T]his implies that PAF can carry out day and night operations more efficiently than the IAF in case of a full-scale war. The reason behind this is that aircraft can be made to carry out even six sorties a day, but the pilots have to deal with the limits of human endurance. The IAF also depends a lot on simulation instead of preferred actual bombing practice. The all-important Western Air Command, which looks after the entire air space with Pakistan and parts of China, does not have a single firing range to drop larger caliber bombs.”

The Pakistan-India dogfight over Kashmir skies has dented Indian and international confidence in the ability of New Delhi and the Indian Armed Forces to conduct war. The excessive reliance on the ‘Bollywood effect’ in conducting war (the use of propaganda to claim victory instead of really achieving victory) is a disturbing new development in India. Indian lies have been exposed to the world by international credible media.
