IAF Chief: We Need To Focus On Indigenisation

Air Chief Marshal VR Chaudhari of the Indian Air Force said on Tuesday that no country can be “truly sovereign” unless it is self-sufficient, emphasising the need for India to focus more on defence research and development in order to manufacture weapons and systems locally rather than relying on “minor indigenization” of foreign products.

Future warfare, according to the IAF chief, might include attacks on all fronts, from economic strangulation to diplomatic isolation, military standoffs, and information blackouts in the form of “distributed denial of service” strikes.

During a discussion on “The Future of Air Warfare: Securing the Skies and Beyond,” ACM Chaudhari said, “All of this will happen well before the first bullet is fired or the first aircraft crosses the border.”
