IAF Can Face Any Threats Despite Fighter Jets Shortage: IAF Chief

The possibility of a two-front war remains low but the Indian Air Force (IAF) has adequate capability to tackle threats despite the shortage of fighter jets, IAF Chief Marshal B.S. Dhanoa said on Thursday report in The Hindu

“Possibility of a two-front war in the current geopolitical situation is low. Our response should be based on enemy’s capability because intentions can change overnight,” the Air Chief said at the annual press conference ahead of the Air Force Day on October 8.

He said that with Pakistan the IAF was more than matched while with China it was adequate. “It is not what China has got, it is what they can project against us. It is what they can bring in to Tibet… our capability is adequate.”

The Air Chief acknowledged that Chinese forces were still pitched near Doklam despite an end to the standoff, saying China held military exercises every year in summer and so their forces were close by when the standoff happened. “Their [China] forces in Chumbi Valley are still deployed and I expect that they withdraw as summer exercise gets over,” he said.
