Ready To Meet Any Contingency; Rafale Jets, S-400 Missiles Will Boost Capabilities: IAF Chief


Asserting that the Indian Air Force is “ever-prepared” to meet any contingency, its chief B S Dhanoa said on Monday that the induction of 36 Rafale jets and S-400 missile systems would enhance the capabilities of the force.

Amid instances of air crashes, Air Marshal Dhanoa said aerospace safety is one area where the force needs to maintain a constant vigil as “loss of aircraft in peacetime is not only expensive, but also diminishes the wartime capability”.

Efforts are being made to minimise accidents due to human error by providing best possible training to the air crew and technicians to meet the challenges of operating current generation fighters, as well as legacy aircraft and weapons systems.

“The IAF is ever prepared to meet any contingency that challenges the defence of our country. In the year gone by, IAF has continued to grow from strength to strength and achieved a number of operational milestones,” Dhanoa said in his address on Air Force Day here.  Read More
