IAF showcasing ability to punish, hit hard with precision through Vayu Shakti: Air Chief Dhanoa


Even as limited air strikes are being considered one of the most effective weapons against terror infrastructure in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir, if the government decides to exercise a military option despite the risk of escalation, IAFfighters demonstrated their capability to hit targets with precision by day, dusk and night in the Thar desert on Saturday.

Though the massive “Vayu Shakti” firepower demonstration was planned months in advance, and is held once every three years, the unmistakable strategic signalling came through in front of an international audience at the Pokhran firing range just two days after the Pulwama terror attack.

“We are showcasing our ability to hit hard, hit fast and hit with precision, as also hit during day, hit during night and hit under adverse weather conditions through our autonomous bombing capability,” said IAF chief Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa.
