As we draw closer to the Golden Jubilee Year (2014) of our company we wish to assure our readers of our constant endeavour and commitment to improve the depth and richness of content and the referential nature of our data. Indeed this has been our mantra since the first SP s Military Yearbook--a brainchild of late Shri Sukhdeo Prasad Baranwal--was published way back in 1965. It came in for high praise from the then Indian Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri and soon became a byword for excellence in defence reference among the armed forces. The following paragraphs give an overview of global events that impact the Asia-Pacific region in general and South Asia in particular along with the military dimension of the resulting security situation. The arc of instability stretching from the Middle East to South Asia and China has received the most attention. SP s Military Yearbook 2009-2010 being presented to Defence Minister A.K. Antony Politico-Economic Situation As we look at the world at the beginning of the second decade of the 21st century the overall geostrategic outlook is hardly encouraging. The year 2011 has been marked by social economic and political upheavals. Stock markets the world over have been on the downslide once again weighed down by fears that the global economy is heading for a double-dip recession. Watching the SP s Military yearbook 2011-2012 40th Issue 41 The cover of Military Yearbook 1965 global economy teetering on the brink of yet another recession analysts have slashed optimistic growth forecasts made in the recent past. The US and Europe are struggling to contain their debt crises with the inevitable political repercussions. The overall decline of the West and the rise of the rest increasingly shape the international political discourse. Analysts around the world predict the dawn of a new world order led by the non-Western giants such as China India and Brazil and wonder about the character of that new order. At this time the Asian region is plunged into the throes of political transformation driven by peoples movements. Called the Arab Spring a revolutionary wave of protests is rocking the Arab world. West Asia (Middle East) particularly where most states are monarchies sheikhdoms or single-party dictatorships is rocked by violent convulsions. The Israel-Palestine struggle the Iraq war and insurgency and fragrance from the Jasmine Revolution that overthrew Tunisia s President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali are spreading over the larger West Asia-North Africa region. Egypt Yemen Syria and Libya are experiencing mass uprisings. The upsurge in Egypt ended Hosni Mubarak s 30-year oppressive rule in February 2011. Syria s quest for popular empowerment has now entered critical mass multiplication of protests and fatalities with the risk of escalation is posing a major obstacle to re-negotiating a genuine social contract between the state and the society. As regards Libya fighting continues around Muammar Gaddafi s compound in Tripoli and it seems time is running out for the regime. Most people in the Arab League s 22 countries share the Tunisians and Egyptians dislike of corrupt dictatorial regimes which do not provide basic public amenities services relieve food shortages or deal with high prices. The Arab states have not done well either and the upsurge may engulf them as well. Anger and frustration are deep and widespread as is the lack of freedom. China has emerged as a major player on the global economic scene. Despite its rapid economic growth however the disparity between urban China and the rural hinterland is among the widest in the world. In recent years there has been large-scale migration of the impoverished rural population to the more prosperous parts of the country on the East Coast where the cities have gone through an unprecedented boom in construction activity. Social discontent also manifests itself in protests by farmers and workers. Tens of thousands of people travel to Beijing each year to petition the authorities and seek redress for land grab and eviction. Other pressing problems include corruption which has pervaded every segment of society and the burgeoning rate of HIV infection. Also devastated by widespread environmental degradation China is now home to many of the world s most-polluted cities a clear downside of the economic boom. Military Dimension of Security In the first decade of the 21st century military force has been the dominant element in statecraft in different parts of the world. Iraq Afghanistan the Korean peninsula Georgia and the Israeli offensives in the Middle East have demonstrated that states continue to rely on military power to retain control. France and the UK have used military capabilities to secure their interests and safeguard their citizens in Africa. The totalitarian regimes in the Middle East have employed military forces to perpetuate dictatorships. Equally the use of force by some major powers against the Gaddafi regime in Libya is demonstrative of the use of coercive power. China s use of military force in maintaining order in Tibet and Zhinjiang and its constant threat against Taiwan add to this list of examples. The Bush Doctrine of pre-emptive use of force against perceived threats from terrorists had widened the scope of the employment of military force as part of statecraft. Therefore some analysts believe that little has changed after the Cold War since the core geostrategic interests of major powers have not changed. If anything the shift from geostrategic to geo-economic core interests have only accentuated the tendency to use military force in managing international relations. 42 SP s Military yearbook 2011-2012 40th Issue The Af-Pak region continues to be characterised by the political vacuum in the region. The umbilical link between Afghanistan and Pakistan is highlighted by the Af-Pak policy of the US. The Taliban Al-Qaeda and several other terrorist organisations continue to operate with a fair amount of impunity in and from the territory of Pakistan. The recent killing of Osama bin Laden by US Special Forces in Abbottabad in Pakistan is a case in point. The Taliban-led insurgency in Afghanistan has What will protect India in the 21st century shown no signs of abatement with a significant rise of violence in the southern parts of the country. The year 2011 has been the deadliest for foreign military troops since the US invasion in 2001. The death toll of the coalition troops is 2 686 according to Operation Enduring Freedom data. The violence and the threat of violence through terrorist activities in this region have significantly heightened the feeling of insecurity in South Central and West Asia and China. China considers rapid defence modernisation a logical priority in the backdrop when it states Taiwan independence separatist force and its activities are still the biggest obstacle and threat to the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations. Separatist forces working for the independence of East Turkistan and Tibet have inflicted serious damage on national security and social stability. China s growing military might is reflected in its latest White Paper China s National Defense 2010 released in March 2011. China has categorically referred to the ground troops as the People s Liberation Army (PLA). This underlines the ongoing transformation of the PLA. China has stressed upon the strategic requirements of mobile operations and tri-dimensional offence and defence strategies to regional defence and transregional mobility. In further advancement of the overall transformation of the service the PLA has invested in reform innovation and development. According to the White Paper the PLA places emphasis upon the development of new types of combat forces optimising its organisation and structure strengthening military training in an information-based society accelerating digitisation upgrading and retrofitting of main battle weaponry and deploying new types of weapon platforms significantly boosting their capabilities in long-distance manoeuvres and integrated assaults. China s present strategy vis- -vis India with whom it has a major unresolved boundary dispute remains an indirect one using Pakistan and increasingly other regional countries to create strategic uncertainties for India with a view to divert attention from the growing military imbalance with China. Another major plank of strategy is to deter and discourage Indian military cooperation with western powers and countries in East Asia or the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN). Pakistan having earlier encouraged trained and funded terrorist groups including the Taliban is now plagued by terrorism insurgency and sectarian violence within its own territory. The country is passing through an unprecedented political economic and social crisis exacerbated by the devastating floods in July-August 2010. Islamic radical elements continue to pose a threat to stability in Pakistan. It seems that their institutions of governance and particularly the army are coming under the sway of Taliban ideology. Pakistan s reluctance in undertaking military operations in North Waziristan to avoid antagonising militant leaders there is in consonance with their strategy and core interests. Pakistan also remains ambivalent on dealing with militant groups in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) and particularly the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT). It has still not taken any credible action against the terrorists involved in the attack on Mumbai on November 26 2008. India s military capabilities have been a stabilising element in the South Asian region. This defence capability can be utilised in a wide range of security contingencies in the region. The rapidly changing military technology thresholds demand a modern defence capacity. Indian military forces are therefore gearing up for a major modernisation drive.

New technologies and capabilities however are helping move simulation beyond traditional training to mission rehearsal and in the future support persistent and dynamic synthetic environments. CAE one of the world leaders in simulation has pioneered a range of developments to support the increased use of simulation for both training and mission rehearsal. One of these developments is called the common database or CDB. The CDB is a non-proprietary standard database that defines a single synthetic representation of the world and all simulation systems use the same database. Originally developed for the United States Special Operations Command and now being implemented by a number of global militaries the CDB is an open architecture database specification that allows the creation of a standardized persistent rapidly updatable synthetic environment. Because the CDB can be updated very quickly it supports mission planning and mission rehearsal requirements. A database that conforms to the CDB specification contains datasets that represent the features of the virtual world also called the synthetic environment that you are trying to CAEhasinitiated aninternalresearch anddevelopmentprojectaimedatdeveloping thefoundationfora persistentanddynamic syntheticenvironment whichwouldrepresent afundamentalparadigmshiftintheuse ofsimulation.Shown hereisasynthetic imageofSiraIslandin Yemen after adynamicevent inthiscase abombexplosion.This dynamiceventwould triggeradatabase updateinreal-time thatthenpersiststo allusersofthesyntheticenvironment.

The implementation of a CDB significantly enhances interoperable training and mission rehearsal capabilities while reducing development time configuration control and associated database development costs. One of the main objectives of the CDB is to ensure unity and correlation between the various simulation subsystems while improving database maintainability. A key benefit is the elimination of all source-level correlation errors. There are multiple benefits to using the CDB but they all directly result in the capability to use simulation for mission preparation and rehearsal because the mission rehearsal timeline is greatly reduced. Military simulation and mission rehearsal end-users have also long desired and recognized the need for the synthetic environment database elements to change in real-time.

Such is the versatility of the omnirole fighter that it could carry out a precision strike and then shift to interception or combat air patrol during the very same sortie. For ground surface attack missions Rafale can carry laser-guided bombs Modular Air-to-Surface precision weapons (AASM) Scalp cruise missiles and Exocet antiship missiles. Scalp and Exocet are precision stand-off weapons which can hit high value targets deep behind multiple lines of layered defences. Those heavily defended targets are the linchpin of the opponent s defensive system and putting them out of action is often the decisive step which turns the war around. Rafale s ability to deliver these missiles with a variety of attack profiles covering all situations makes it the commander s preferred game-changer . Among the most innovative weapons ever designed for a fighter AASM can be equipped with GPS INS guidance kit or infrared imaging seeker. It is fitted with a range extension kit that allows targets to be attacked at distances exceeding 50 km. The angle of impact can be selected (oblique or vertical) in order to maximise the amount of damages. Rafale can carry up to six AASMs under-wings and six widely separated targets can be engaged by day or night in a single attack run. New versions of AASM are currently being developed with various warheads from 250 to 1 000 kg. The 250 kg variant has proved its worth in situations where collateral damages must be avoided at all costs.

In recent years requirements on the environmental impact of the weapon systems have been highlighted. FFV Ordnance is continuously working on fulfilling these new requirements. The war on terrorism has been partly moved into built-up areas which requires weapon systems that are light and easy to carry and that have good effect in various types of targets and not just in armoured vehicles. But combat is also conducted outside built-up areas and in terrain that is inaccessible for vehicles so the requirement for weapons with a long combat range and various warheads remains or is even increased.

They deny access to coastal zones thereby seriously impairing the effectiveness of surface and subsurface assets. For this reason most navies have fleets of mine countermeasures vessels (MCMVs) designed for the six steps of a classic detection classification localization identification re-acquisition neutralization (DCLIRN) response. But the challenges of the underwater environment can make a typical MCM mission extremely time-consuming and error-prone. Furthermore most of the steps require proximity to the mine itself which is dangerous for the MCMV and its crew. As a result most navies are turning to underwater robots for DCLRIN missions.

National power has been defined as the capacity to combine economic technological and military power to create condition of advantage in international arena. Even as economy and technology parameters have gained significance in the globalised world force still remains the critical ingredient of national power. Statesmen are yet to find an international system for peace and harmony and hence inter-state violence remains a significant factor in international relations. Rivalry and competition amongst states combined with miscalculations lead to tense confrontations which even diplomacy is unable to lessen. The use of force in situations where the opponents possess nuclear weapons further complicates the situation and imposes both dilemmas and risks of misperceptions. It has been rightly said that not only is diplomacy unable to prevent states from going to war it has also proved insufficient to get states out of war once it commences. As new powers rise in the international arena their sense of roles and rights change increasing the risk of conflict. Global and regional balances of power are characterised currently by unequal distribution of power. In addition globalisation has led to greater interdependence amongst major powers while many states find their monopoly of violence in external and internal conflicts reduced. Yet in the first decade of 21st century military force has been the dominant element in statecraft in different parts of the globe. Iraq Afghanistan Korean peninsula Georgia and the Israeli offensives in the Middle East have demonstrated the continuing reliance by states on military force. France and UK have used military capabilities to secure their interests and safeguard their citizens in Africa. The recent uprisings against totalitarian rulers in the Middle East have revealed the role military forces can perform in maintaining stability or perpetuating dictatorships within states. Equally the threat of using force by some major powers against the Colonel Muammar Gaddafi regime in Libya is demonstrative of this trend. China s use of military force in maintaining order in Tibet and Zhinjiang and its sabre-rattling against Taiwan add to this list of examples. The role of the United Nations is significant in understanding the use of force in international affairs. The UN was expected to work as a forum to avoid the need of force stop conflicts if they erupted provide peacekeeping forces to separate the parties to a conflict and help in finding solutions to the military conflict. In Iraq and Afghanistan the UN was effectively sidelined or bypassed when military force was used by the US-led coalition. The Bush doctrine of pre-emptive use of force against perceived threats from terrorists had widened the scope of using military force as part of statecraft. Some believe that little has changed after the Cold War since the core geostrategic interests of major powers have not changed. If anything the shift from geostrategic to geo-economic core interests for example in the oil producing Middle East have made that region even more susceptible to the use of force in managing international relations. China s muscular naval demonstrations in the seas around Japan and North Korea s military actions against South Korea are examples of this.

This should not be an unsatisfactory outcome for either side. n ranjit GuPta O Abbreviations & Index at the end of the book 5 SP s Military yearbook 2011-2012 40th Issue REGIONAL BALANCE ne of the most significant geopolitical developments of the first decade of the 21st century has been the unimaginably dramatic transformation of India-US relations. The watershed civilian nuclear deal catapulted India from being a nuclear pariah into the exclusive nuclear club and overturned the single most important issue of bilateral contentiousness. This agreement has become the leit motif of the new relationship. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh s putting his job on the line to win Parliamentary approval of this landmark agreement was indispensable in overcoming ingrained anti-American sentiment in India. In another completely new and enormously significant dimension virtually from scratch the United States and India have held more joint military exercises with each other than with any other country since 2002. These involved the army navy and air force and covered a multidisciplinary array of military activities. These include some naval exercises involving Japan Australia and Singapore also. Reaching out to India was an American initiative otherwise the process would almost certainly have been a non-starter. However this was not due to the blossoming of any sudden love for India but the result of cold calculations of the neo-conservatives who surrounded the then President George W. Bush and Bush s own view of India s potential and that a strong strategic relationship with India is essential to the fulfillment of the long-term US strategic objectives in Asia. The US encouraged its allies and close friends amongst countries of the Arabian Peninsula and East and South East Asia to reorient their own policies vis- -vis India and this has been a very welcome fallout of the strongly developing new relationship between the US and India. This rationale and all these elements have continued to be valid during Barack Obama s presidency. This will inevitably be a period of consolidation. Such periods are always and inevitably less exciting than those which witness spectacular breakthroughs which tend to generate exaggeratedly high expectations. As the canvas of bilateral engagement enlarges and the number of issues increases the process of strengthening relations will require great patience and a lot of hard pushing often frustrating by an increasingly larger number of people and in increasingly larger number of domains. There are new issues where both sides clearly wish to have a strong relationship but unexpected hurdles have emerged partly because India seems to want exceptional treatment and is often hypersensitive about sovereignty concerns while the Americans are perceived as being too legalistic demanding hectoring and prescriptive. Obama is constrained by the traditional approach of Democrats on issues such as non-proliferation and Kashmir and the consequences of the imperative need to wind down America s draining wars. Wracked by one scam after another increasing publicly paraded evidence of deteriorating governance and a perception that a few important cabinet members do not share the enthusiasm and vision of the Prime Minister regarding stronger relations with the US Manmohan Singh s domestic political clout has weakened considerably too.

With the collapse of the Soviet Union Russia s transition from a centrally planned heavy industry oriented economy to a market economy was accompanied by severe crises and falling gross domestic product (GDP).

Extrapolating linearly from the past would also be simplistic as both India and Russia have changed enormously from the days of the Indo-Soviet partnership when the Soviet Union had stepped in to back India during the 1971 crisis in Bangladesh. And yet while the bewildering pace of global transformation makes hazarding long-term projections a very risky enterprise--geography and balance of power continue to play as few remaining constants in international relations. Their continued silence should therefore mitigate anxieties over hypothesising about future scenarios in bilateral relations. Russian-Chinese Partnership It was no wonder that Russia turned increasingly towards China to record its opposition to unilateralism North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) expansion and the stationing of ballistic missile defences on its doorstep. Russia massively increased exports of military equipment to China supplying 22 billion ( 99 000 crore) worth of armaments to China between 2000 and 2010. China extended a 25 billion ( 1 25 000 crore) loan to build a spur from the EPSO II pipeline originally destined exclusively for the Pacific Coast--which would deliver 15 million tonnes of Siberian oil annually for 20 years to China. A friendly Russia was essential to China during the first decade of the new century as it extended control over Central Asian energy resources transportation networks (including parts of Pakistan occupied Kashmir) and pipelines thus reducing its dependence on sea-routed energy supplies and petro-dollars part of its strategy to edge the dollar out as the dominant international reserve currency and establish its primacy in the Eastern hemisphere.

They thus persisted with these policies while Western advisers proffered grossly inadequate counsel on economic transition policy which contributed to the Russian economy s collapse. From being a geopolitical pole Russia was relegated to a mid-level power.

Although the implosion of Soviet Union had brought about a change in the global order and unipolarity in the early 1990s it has brought minimal change in the status quo in Asia-Pacific and South Asia. The United States maintained its hub and spoke policy in Asia-Pacific to perpetuate its dominance and continued its Pakistan-centric South Asia policy. Even though India has always had global aspirations to become an important player in the international system resource limitation constrained India from pursuing a global role. The liberalisation of Indian economy to overcome the balance of payment crisis in 1991 not only unleashed latent market forces but also resulted in a shift in India s engagement with the world at large South East and East Asian region in particular. As India began to pursue a new identity the success of Asian Tigers attracted India s attention towards them in search for markets increased trade and investment opportunities. India s Look East Policy was unveiled in 1992 with considerable enthusiasm and interest. But the response of the target states was limited in scope and scale towards India s overtures. Nonetheless India s significance as an emerging global player has increased commensurate with its economic development. Year 2012 will be celebrated as two decades of India-ASEAN engagement with a Commemorative Summit thus it is useful to review the progress made so far in our Look East Policy and find portends for the future. As India s global profile improved the new millennium also witnessed two significant developments in the international system. First the emergence of unconventional security challenges in the form of radical extremist Islamist groups with global agendas piracy on the high seas and natural disasters which threatened the legitimacy and efficacy of nation-states second the advent of China as a first-tier power in the international system challenging the predominance of the United States. Historically whenever revisionist power(s) attempted to change the existing international order other powers efforts to maintain the status quo has always resulted in great power conflict and wars. Therefore successfully negotiating these challenges has become the principal priority of the concerned states in the international system. Besides preparing to meet these new security challenges India had also to recalibrate its engagement with countries in South East and East Asia region to enhance its economic development through seeking investment in various sectors and importing technology to facilitate its energy demands and other appropriate fields. Earlier although most states showed initial enthusiasm to engage with India it remained a non-starter. One reason was that their economic and trade demands were met within the region second the United States was able to provide stability and security in the region finally China was yet to show signs of its great power aspirations.

First the Taliban became a victim of its own propaganda. In 2001 (at the time of Operation Enduring Freedom) despite the withdrawal of Pakistani troops and tanks it decided to fight like a regular army and courted disaster at the hands of the US airpower. It was the Americans turn now to display hubris America seriously under-resourced this war. It switched its attention to Iraq and decided to leave a very small footprint of just 10 000 US troops supported by airpower in Afghanistan. As Seth Jones the US scholar on Taliban says that the US squandered this extraordinary opportunity. No professional Afghan National Army (ANA) was created and the new state was forced to rely upon the discredited warlords and some 50 000-70 000 poorly trained militia men of the Northern Alliance. The battered Taliban fled to sanctuaries in Pakistan s North-West Frontier Province (NWFP) and Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) and soon reorganised itself. The poppy crop acreage in Afghanistan now shot up by ten times from 20 000 acres in 2001 to 1 83 000 acres in 2001-02 and by 2007 it had reached the astounding level of 4 77 000 acres. The simple fact is that up to 50 per cent of the Afghan population had been killed wounded or had fled as refugees. It could just not sustain the manpower intensive agriculture. Planting poppy needed no manpower and was thus the easiest option. This provided the financial source for the rejuvenation of the Taliban. 2005 2006 2007 1 268 casualties 3 154 casualties 5 818 casualties The bulk of these casualties were caused by IEDs The world which had literally forgotten Afghanistan now saw disaster staring at it. A major effort to save the situation was undertaken. The levels of US International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) troop commitment quadrupled. In two surges it rose from 22 100 troops in 2006 to over 1 00 000 men in 2011. The first surge The first surge of some 17 000 troops and 4 000 trainers was sent in May 2009.

This rose to five attacks per day in 2004. Year 2005 was the turning point. The Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) now encouraged the Taliban to resume operations in a major way.

Narasimha Rao had its provenance in an unusual set of circumstances. The collapse of the Soviet Union heralded the end of Cold War and the establishment of a new global equation in which the US had no peer or challenger and India found itself friendless. In Asia as Japan entered a period of economic recession China began to emerge as a significant player and the ASEAN nations dramatically improved their economies. India was groping for answers to its economic woes. The Narasimha Rao government administered several urgent firstaid measures in the form of economic reforms which were collectively termed as liberalisation and the doctor who was called in to fix the problem was none other than the incumbent Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh who was then Finance Minister of the country. The Look East Policy was part of India s overall response to the new and changing milieu in the region. A decade and a half later Dr Manmohan Singh said ... India s Look East Policy was not merely an external economic policy it was also a strategic shift in India s vision of the world and India s place in the evolving global economy. Most of all it was about reaching out to our civilisational neighbours.

Both have played a crucial role in defining India s maritime environment and thus shaping its history as well as destiny. The waters of the Arabian Sea have sustained a tradition of trade and commerce going back to the third millennium BCE when the denizens of the Indus Valley (2500 BCE) traded with Mesopotamia Egypt and Rome. Indian mariners familiar with the clockwork regularity of the monsoon winds and making use of a magnetic compass (matsya yantra) are said to have sailed freely across this sea in ancient times. It was only in the first century CE when a Greek navigator named Hippalus made the epochal discovery of the cyclic monsoon winds that foreign merchant ships started making a direct ocean passage from African and Arabian ports to India s west coast.

China s long-term strategy is clearly to be recognised as the pre-eminent economic and military power in the Asia-Pacific region in the short-term and as a major global power in the long-term. Its strategy of four modernisations formally adopted in 1978 is bearing fruit and is leading to fairly rapid though regionally skewed economic development and military modernisation. In recent years the Chinese have stressed the importance of comprehensive national strength in determining the country s role in international affairs. Their concept of national defence is no longer limited merely to the defence of territory but has been expanded to include the seaboard and outer space. In maritime security the erstwhile strategy of coastal defence has been converted to a strategy of oceanic offensive . The emphasis on bolstering naval and air forces stems from a desire to project power well away from China s shores.

The first relates to people taking up arms against the state when other means of redressal of their aspirations and demands are either not met or are glossed over by an uncaring politico-bureaucratic combine. In other words bad governance prevails and only peripheral attempts if that are made to satisfy the mostly legitimate requirements of the populace. The ongoing Maoist insurgency falls squarely in this category.

There are many reasons for this including the legacy of the British who left the country split on dubious religious grounds with artificial borders which took no account of the ethnicity of the people. The reorganisation of states also produced several anomalies. These have resulted in both internal and external problems of gargantuan proportions. The country s diversity all-round poverty exploitation of the weaker sections of society by greedy businessmen with the active support of the political leadership and their bureaucratic advisors a self-degrading political system to which our politicians are clinging on desperately and widespread corruption are some of the other reasons for the constant mushrooming of internal conflicts. It is unfortunate that our political leadership is unable to cope with the burgeoning internal problems mainly because they look at all internal problems from the prism of electoral politics. Our leaders have not dealt with internal conflicts firmly and have allowed them to become unmanageable. At that stage the leadership has taken recourse to the use of force and in most cases has turned to the Army to tackle the situation. The problems of internal conflicts gets accentuated due to lack of governance and the inability of the political leadership to understand the core issues that are forcing the people of a particular area or ethnicity or religion to take up arms to draw the attention of the rulers. The governing class apparently remains unmoved when the problems are presented to both the bureaucratic officials as well as the elected representatives of the people in a routine manner. Lately the political leaders have taken increasing recourse to doles euphemistically called compensations freebies of many varieties and reservations of all types in lieu of good governance. This is likely to make the situation worse as such populist measures have a finite life and they are no substitute for improving education health infrastructure good governance fair and impartial dealings devoid of nepotism and corruption providing skills and creating employment opportunities. Another facet of internal problems is the worsening law and order situation in the country. The police-politician-criminal nexus has emboldened the criminal elements. Their activities are creating an environment of lawlessness where influential and rich people violate the law with impunity because they know they can get away.

Singh while delivering the inaugural address in a seminar of the Centre for Land Warfare Studies (CLAWS) on October 15 2010 on Emerging Roles and Tasks of the Indian Army referred to Pakistan and China as two irritants . In the same vein but more explicitly in end-December 2009 the former Army Chief General Deepak Kapoor had also stated during a seminar of the Army Training Command that the Indian Army must prepare for a two-front war. The statement of the current Army Chief coming close on the heels of the former Army Chief s declaration indicates that our armed forces are indeed planning and preparing for a contingency in which they may have to confront both neighbours simultaneously. The five thrust areas of the new war doctrine as reported in the media at that time are as follows nTwo-front capability This is the anchor on which India s new war doctrine is based which means that India should be prepared to effectively meet simultaneous threats from China on the northern borders and Pakistan on the western borders. nAsymmetric warfare and sub-conventional threats Both the adversaries can be expected to use asymmetric means in the form of infiltrators and terrorists across porous borders to divide our attention and thus hope to militarily weaken our overall response. Our Future Strategic Direction Thus it seems that from a strategic viewpoint India has shifted to a doctrine of active and aggressive defence as opposed to passive defence in the past. However it would be wrong to assume that these capabilities show India s growing proclivity towards military adventurism.

The doctrine s enunciation of a two-front GET YOUR COPY TO READ IN COMPLETE ASIAN WHO S WHO focus on fast-paced operations could be slowed down considerably by such threats to our lines of communications and the civil infrastructure. We therefore need to have an independent operational capability to confront such threats without diluting the main military effort. This capability is being referred to as a half front capability. nStrategic reach and out-of-areas operations capabilities The new war doctrine also seeks to confront future challenges by acquiring an out of area capability so as to militarily meet the role and aspirations of a regional power. nTri-service operational synergy The key aspects of strategic planning and conduct of future wars will be based on interdependence and operational synergy among the three services. Therefore joint operations space-based capability ballistic missile defence and airborne amphibious and air-land operations must be addressed comprehensively. nMilitary technological dominance over adversaries This will be covered by acquiring capabilities for network-centric warfare information warfare cyber warfare all integrated to facilitate speedy decision-making and exploitation of fleeting tactical opportunities.

Therefore there is no military dimension to nuclear weapons independent of the political. The national interest necessarily politically determined is to ensure state survival and minimum societal disruption. n Colonel (retd) ali ahMed T Abbreviations & Index at the end of the book 39 SP s Military yearbook 2011-2012 40th Issue REGIONAL BALANCE here are two approaches to nuclear weapons. The one understandably more subscribed to has it that owing to their destructive power these are special weapons not meant for military use. They are instead meant for deterrence. This position was articulated early in the atomic age with Bernard Brodie the first nuclear theorist maintaining that their advent changed the role of armies from waging war to avoiding war. The second approach came about as the Cold War evolved providing a rationale for the vertical proliferation witnessed in superpower arsenals. This approach treats nuclear weapons as different in order of magnitude but not of kind. While it values deterrence it believes that the military utility ascribed to nuclear weapons undergirds deterrence. It therefore emphasises the military dimension as against the political dimension of nuclear weapons. The political dimension is what makes nuclear weapons be seen as political weapons not for military usage but for deterrence. This is the Indian perspective on nuclear weapons. India sees nuclear weapons as regrettable acquisitions. As a reluctant nuclear power it has acquired these after considerable time and debate in order that these deter nuclear use or the threat of use against it. The necessity was brought about by the nuclearisation of the neighbourhood to India s disadvantage. The disadvantage was negated with the Shakti tests of Pokhran II. Progressively since then India has attempted to redress the asymmetry in its pursuit of a nuclear triad. Its doctrine is explicitly a nuclear war deterrent one positing massive nuclear retaliation in case of nuclear use against India or its forces anywhere. Even if the term massive is discounted its long-standing position has been to inflict unacceptable damage but only in retaliation. However the possibility of deterrence break down admittedly remote cannot be entirely ignored. It is in this circumstance that the military dimension of nuclear weapons comes to fore. Owing to the focus on deterrence the military aspect has remained understudied in India. This paper attempts to shift the spotlight from nuclear deterrence to nuclear employment. In doing so it posits a nuclear employment doctrine for India as against the pre-existing one for nuclear deterrence. This it does by resurrecting the work of General Krishnaswamy Sundarji who was not only the first in India to reflect on this aspect but also surprisingly remains perhaps the lone figure to have done so. The logic informing an employment doctrine is that once deterrence has collapsed for some reason the situation is no longer one of deterrence. Therefore a deterrence doctrine needs to recede and instead a nuclear employment doctrine needs to take over. Though initial deterrence breaks down it does not mean that deterrence is no longer valid. In conflict deterrence remains operational since nuclear weapons continue in the arsenal even after introduction of nuclear weapons into a conflict. Therefore inconflict deterrence must inform the employment doctrine. This would be different from the initial regime of deterrence as the scenario is markedly different post-nuclear use.

Governments and intelligentsia across the globe have lambasted Pakistan for its acts of commission and omission. In the article They Got Him. the Economist suggested that it was difficult to believe that Pakistan s blundering spies had no idea of the whereabouts of the Al-Qaeda. In another article Pakistan A Terrorist State published in the Newsweek Salman Rushdie the renowned Booker Prize winner for the book Midnight s Children wrote As the world braces for the terrorists response to the death of their leader it should also demand that Pakistan give satisfactory answers to the very tough questions it must now be asked. If it does not provide those answers perhaps the time has come to declare it a terrorist state and expel it from the comity of nations. Unmindful of the international lambasting the wily Pakistani establishment chose to plead incompetence rather than admitting to its complicity in harbouring the most wanted terrorist in the world. And while the US suspicion of Pakistan s two-faced policy turns into concrete realisation and Obama Administration goes into a tough mode towards its shifty ally that was mollycoddled by previous US administrations despite its fostering of terrorism China--its all-weather friend with whom Pakistan boasts of a relationship which is deeper than the oceans and higher than the mountains --once again rises to the occasion to provide solace to the beleaguered country by asking the international community to understand its friend s predicament and support it in its hour of crisis. Preposterous as it may sound to the international community what becomes crystal clear is the unflinching support that China is ready to provide to its smaller partner (read lackey) even if it indulges in behaviour akin to cold-blooded murder. It also brings to the fore the perpetual politico-military nexus between the two countries and its implications on India s security concerns. India continues to face multiple security threats and challenges from its neighbours. While the old adversarial threats due to unresolved borders remain new threats and challenges have also added to the old inventory. Terrorism in all its varieties and forms is a palpable threat and India also faces insurgencies generally fuelled from outside by the same adversaries. On the one hand proxy war in Jammu & Kashmir fostered and supported in all respects by Pakistan continues unabated and on the other hand China s repeated utterances claiming large portions of Indian territory including the entire state of Arunachal Pradesh inspires little confidence in the minds of India s security establishment vis- -vis its neighbours intensions. Little wonder that a one-and-a-half front or a two-front war theory has started to gain ever-increasing currency among the policymakers and strategists in India. The evolving security paradigm necessitates India to carry out a thorough investigation of its own capabilities vis- -vis its adversaries to prepare itself to adequately meet the emerging and future security and military threats and challenges. It is in the context of military capabilities that the operational capabilities of the three air forces need to be covered in great detail as the air power of a country has become a major contributor and a decisive factor in the outcome of a military conflict.

The energy security calculations of exporting country are in several respects the same as that of an importing country.

Although military strength remained the supreme instrument of power economic growth and development have become a cardiogram of a state s power. The economy of a state exerts major influence on shaping its foreign policy. The first aspect of the economic element in foreign policy is the degree of dependence on external trade. This is related to and is affected by the quantity and availability of domestic natural resources commodity composition of exports range of markets for them size and trends of population and the standard of living and expectations about it. There is a direct relationship between economic growth and energy consumption. Energy consumption is both a necessary condition for growth and a consequence of it. Growing population and expanding economy with the shift in focus of production from agriculture to manufacturing and services sectors has led to increase in energy intensity which has resulted in unprecedented hike in demand for energy sources. Thus the critical relevance of this concept for a nation emanates from the growing imbalance between the demand for energy and its supply from indigenous sources implying thereby growing import dependence for essential requirements of the nation. In the past 35-40 years worldwide energy consumption has nearly doubled driven by population growth rising living standards invention of energy-dependent technologies and consumerism. At the same time limited and depleting oil reserves unstable oil prices the worsening problems of environment and health and the urgent need to address global warming and climate change demand an urgent need for enhancing and strengthening the very concept of energy security.

Additionally the latent political fear of a military coup egged on by the Indian Police Service (IPS) lobby particularly by the IPS-turned-bureaucrats coupled with bureaucracy that revels in maintaining their primacy by playing on inter-service rivalry and creating avoidable hurdles by exercising overt control over financial expenditures equipment acquisitions and appointments has not permitted the institution of a Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) despite strong recommendations to the effect made by the Group of Ministers (GoM) following the Kargil War.

In one of the Unified Commanders Conference not very far back one of the service chiefs stated We have very good synergy within the three Chiefs. We golf together once a month and follow it up with breakfast It was more of a joke but also at least half the truth. If we continue to progress in current fashion then the race of revolution in military affairs (RMA) in true sense will remain a misnomer both regionally and globally. Mere coining of joint warfighting doctrine is of little use unless organisations and structures are created to execute such doctrine. Making cosmetic changes to our organisations is not likely to work. We need to ensure unified command structures speedily through the three services horizontally and vertically in a time bound manner. The very first step in our march towards RMA is to make organisational changes that are necessary to give an impetus to synergising the defence forces for complete integration.

Non-state actors are likely to be more and more state-sponsored in our case with increasing difficulty to pinpoint external support. Pakistan s continuing jehadi strategy is on the threshold of cashing on to the terror infrastructure it has so painstakingly built over the years in India nurturing the supporters simultaneously. Appointment of Adnan Shukrijumah to lead Al-Qaeda operatives in the US is mainly due to the 15 long years he has spent in the US. Pakistan is likely to follow the same policy in order to obliterate its fingerprints in future terror strikes--a tactics better than blatant unconvincing denials. Today warfare is no longer confined to the battlefield. The boundaries between war and no war are blurred with asymmetric wars that have no borders no rules and no regulations. Today wars are being fought in industrial bases computer rooms and are viewed instantly by the public in the drawing rooms with the revolution ushered in by information technology. Psychological warfare probably imposes the largest penalty but affords the highest payoffs. Successful psychological warfare demands integrated themes and subjects which need to be developed. India has a variety of Special Forces that have wide applications across the entire spectrum of conflict. They can very well be employed as a controlled response in the emerging strategic environment that is showing signs of escalation. Unfortunately they have only been used as tactical tool in conventional war other than counter-insurgency within our borders save the sole experience as part of the Indian Peace Keeping Force (IPKF) in Sri Lanka where they performed well. Radio intercepts of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) were explicit that they respected and feared the troops of our Special Forces. We have failed to acknowledge that Special Forces have ample scope of employment to face challenges of terrorism information asymmetric NBC warfare and the like. Our Special Forces are split over various organisations have different command and control set ups and continue to expand. Time is more than opportune for India to set up an Integrated Special Forces Command in order to synergise our Special Forces and optimise their potential.

The earthquake-tsunami combine caused extensive damage to the Japanese economy initially estimated to be over 300 billion ( 13 50 000 crore) and triggered a crisis at a nuclear power plant necessitating large-scale evacuation. The main and the largest of the four islands that constitute the Japanese nation and the seventh largest island in the world Honshu is only next to the island of Java in Indonesia which is regarded as the most populous in the world. Roughly 1 300 kilometres in length and width varying between 50 km and 230 km the island of Honshu with a coastline of 5 450 km and total area of 2 27 963 square km is larger than Great Britain. The terrain is mountainous and volcanic being frequently jolted by earthquakes. Mount Fuji is the highest terrain feature on the island and continues to be an active volcano. Notwithstanding the fact that Japan has been prone to earthquakes it has continued to build nuclear power generation plants even in seismic zones as the other sources of energy available in the country are totally inadequate to meet the colossal demand of the world s third largest economy. The epicentre of the massive earthquake that generated a tsunami with ocean waves 35 feet high lay around 370 km from the Japanese capital Tokyo. In what is acknowledged as the greatest disaster of the 21st century so far and the worst earthquake in the last 140 years large parts of north- eastern Japan including the port city of Sendai which was a major habitation nearest to the epicentre of the earthquake lay devastated by the overwhelming fury of nature. Apart from the countless who lost their homes and belongings thousands lay dead and many more were reported missing. The misery was compounded by as many as 25 aftershocks measuring 6.0 or above on the Richter scale that continued to rock Japan for a few days after the initial upheaval. While the combined effect of an earthquake and a tsunami by itself can be quite destructive as was the experience at Sendai what turned the episode of March 11 into a near holocaust was the severe damage to the nuclear facility at Fukushima Daiichi located on the eastern coast of the island run by the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO). Over 40 years old the nuclear reactors at Fukushima are among the largest in the world and even with foolproof protection unable to withstand the fury of nature. This nuclear power generation facility has a total of six units laid out in two reactor groups. Reactor numbers one to four which were commissioned between 1970 and 1979 constitute Group I and the two newer reactors numbered as five and six are part of Group II. Plans to commission by 2016-17 two additional units numbered as seven and eight were hastily abandoned in the wake of the horrendous experience in March 2011.

Application of military power in isolation may not be sufficient to deal with situations that governments and security forces may confront. Military power must instead be applied in conjunction with other state or international interventions such as diplomacy geopolitical considerations and economic measures. There have been considerable changes even in the purely military domain. Such changes include force development in response to asymmetric and unpredictable threats the demands of coalition operations and the need for information supremacy. Moreover as forces move from a platform-centric paradigm to a net-centric paradigm concepts of operations and decision-making processes and actions continuously need to be reviewed in order to ensure that they remain relevant and effective. The challenges associated while dealing with such changes in the defence environment are considerable. Defence strategists and planners are likely to increasingly find themselves in territories like human decisionmaking cycles command and control hierarchies and information management. Defence experimentation offers a cost-effective means to support focused development and transformation of allied forces by advancing our knowledge of the complex networked systems and capabilities that are being fielded. The term experimentation arises from the Latin word experiri which means to try . Experimentation knowledge differs from other types of knowledge. It is always founded on observation or experience. In other words experiments are always empirical. However measurement alone does not make an experiment. Experiments also involve establishing some level of control and manipulating one or more factors of interest in order to establish or track the cause and effect. As per the Guide for Understanding and Implementing Defence Experimentation (GUIDEx) defence experimentation is the application of the experimental method to the solution of complex defence capability development problems potentially across the full spectrum of conflict types such as warfighting peace enforcement humanitarian relief and peace-keeping . It covers the performance of new equipment or the exploration of new concepts and logistics systems integration interoperability (single service joint and coalition) fleet management and cost of ownership. Any aspect of systems development operation and use that involve human decision-making processes can be addressed. More specifically the direct benefits of experimentation are the ability to deliver timely answers with a measured level of confidence thereby contributing to sound risk management of programmes and their components. It thoroughly supports defence problem solving from concepts through capability development to operations.

These systems are axiomatically designed to obtain advantages over the adversaries. Rapid developments in technology has revolutionised warfare. The key to success will lie in attaining higher levels of net-centricity effective command and control across the force an accelerated decision-action cycle and an ability to conduct synergised operations simultaneously within the defence and security establishment. Harnessing information technology will act as a force multiplier to enhance operational effectiveness of commanders and troops at all levels by enabling exchange filtering and processing of ever increasing amounts of digital information currently available but not integrated. This is very relevant at all levels and particularly at the cutting-edge where opposing forces are in contact. War Paradigm We are in a state of perpetual conflict.

Within the protracted full spectrum conflict adaptive and asymmetric threats have overshadowed conventional conflict. The changing nature of conflict has added new complexities and challenges. Conventional conflict is increasingly intertwined with irregular forces using unconventional means and tactics while irregular forces are becoming increasingly lethal with access to technology and equipment that previously only conventional forces used. The rapid development of high technology weapon systems and their possession by powerful states meant that weaker states and non-state groups could no more stand up to powerful states. This led to asymmetric conflict by smaller irregular forces employing terrorism insurgency and guerrilla warfare while exploiting technology networks cyberspace and media. Fighters today are tough techno savvy and ideologically motivated with cultural awareness impacting military operations. Launch of tactical missions has strategic implications.

Further in the context of the fourth generation warfare a more active United Nations role in restoring order and peace enforcement in conflict zones have become evident lately. This in turn calls for better strategic mobility in the forces of participating countries. These coupled with the developments in the fields of micro electronics automation and information technology during the past over a decade have raised two profoundly pertinent issues which merit due deliberation. These are first the threat profile prevailing against the tank has undergone a drastic change second technology now allows the tank to be designed to be a more viable weapon platform than today.

This changed environment has certain major ramifications for the tank. First it is no longer likely that armies would undertake deep manoeuvres as of yesteryears--penetrations will be shallow and battles will be fought closer to the borders. Built-up areas and wide network of waterways will constrain penetration in space while international opinion will limit it in time. The classical tactics of trading space for time will no longer hold true and battles are likely to be much more intense where every inch of territory will be bitterly contested.

These changes were primarily focused at out-gunning outarmouring and out-powering the adversary. Thus the period between the two World Wars saw the power to weight ratio and gun calibres increasing from 9 1 and 37mm respectively in the 1930s to 15 1 and 90mm towards the end of the war. Armour protection also increased correspondingly during this period from about 45mm to over 120mm. It would be noticed that changes of these nature were guided by two primary imperatives need for enhanced protection and creation of more space within the tank to accommodate the more powerful engine and the larger calibre gun. The increased armour envelop had its attendant implications on weight as well. During the postWorld War period the trend continued till the early 1980s wherein the power to weight ratio and gun calibres rose to 25 1 and 125mm respectively and the weight of the tank stabilised in the region of 57 tonnes to 68 tonnes. These heavier tanks however were not suited for employment in certain types of terrain especially in riverine mountainous terrain and in afforested areas. Air transportability was also severely restricted. Therefore a family of lighter tanks also evolved to meet these specialised requirements. Obviously the levels of protection and firepower of these tanks were much less.

Nevertheless UUVs hold great promise as platforms of the future especially as naval operations shift from blue water to the littorals. n CoMMander ShiShir UPadhyaya U Abbreviations & Index at the end of the book 83 SP s Military yearbook 2011-2012 40th Issue REGIONAL BALANCE nmanned underwater vehicles (UUV) are vehicles that are able to operate underwater without a human occupant. These vehicles may be divided into two categories remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROVs) controlled by a remote human operator and autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) which operate independently. The latter category would constitute a kind of robot. AUVs form the majority of all types of UUVs and hence the term UUV is often used loosely to describe AUVs. The first AUV was developed at the Applied Physics Laboratory at the University of Washington as early as 1957 by Stan Murphy Bob Francois and subsequently Terry Ewart. Over the last five decades hundreds of different types of UUVs have been designed and developed and are currently used in the fields of scientific marine research oil gas exploration and military. Vehicles range in size from man portable lightweight AUVs to large diameter vehicles of over 10 metres length. Most AUVs follow the traditional torpedo shape as this is seen as the best compromise between size usable volume hydrodynamic efficiency and ease of handling. There are some vehicles that make use of a modular design enabling components to be changed easily by the operators. As of 2008 a new class of AUVs are being developed which mimic designs found in nature. Although most are currently in their experimental stages these biomimetic (or bionic) vehicles are able to achieve higher degrees of efficiency in propulsion and manoeuvrability by copying suc- cessful designs in nature. Two such vehicles are Festo s AquaJelly and Evologics Bionik Manta. Today while most AUVs are capable of unsupervised missions most operators remain within range of acoustic telemetry systems in order to maintain a close watch on their investment. This is not always possible. For example Canada operates AUVs to survey the sea floor underneath the Arctic ice in support of their claim under Article 76 of the United Nations Convention of the Law of the Sea. Also ultra-low-power long-range variants such as underwater gliders are becoming capable of operating unattended for weeks or months in littoral and open ocean areas periodically relaying data by satellite to shore before returning to be picked up. Design Sensors Primarily oceanographic tools AUVs carry sensors to navigate autonomously and map features of the ocean. Typical sensors include compasses depth sensors side scan and other sonars magnetometers thermistors and conductivity probes. A demonstration at Monterey Bay in California in September 2006 showed that a 21-inch (533mm) diameter AUV can tow a 300 feet (91 m) long hydrophone array while maintaining a three knot (5.6 km h) cruising speed. Navigation AUVs can navigate using an underwater acoustic positioning system. There are three broad classes of underwater acoustic positioning systems that are used to track underwater vehicles and divers. They are long baseline (LBL) ultra short baseline (USBL) and short baseline (SBL) systems. LBL systems use a network of sea-floor mounted baseline transponders as reference points for navigation. These are generally deployed around the perimeter of a work site.

If directed or controlled by a ground or airborne controller it becomes a remotely piloted vehicle (RPV). UAVs have been in use for a long time. In more recent times the US employed them extensively during the Vietnam War. However it was Israel which demonstrated their tremendous potential first in the 1973 Yom Kippur War with another spectacular repeat in the 1982 Operation Peace for Galilee campaign in the Syrian Bekaa valley. Well before the offensive Israeli UAVs conducted systematic reconnaissance to build a comprehensive threat library of Syrian surface-to-air missiles (SAM) radars. The gathered data was used to programme their anti-radiation missiles (ARMs). The offensive on June 9 1982 opened with a superbly crafted deception plan. UAVs flew across the battlespace mimicking a full scale attack. As anticipated Syrians reacted furiously by firing large number of SAMs which gave away the location of the emitters. While the SAM launchers were being reloaded fighters attacked the SAM radars with ARMs. Simultaneously laser guided bombs assisted by illumination provided by UAVs wiped out the threatening missile sites. UAVs also helped in picking up the scrambling Syrian fighters and relayed the information to an on station AWACS.

In the course of a single afternoon Syrian Air Force was virtually decimated. The significance of the stunning success of this new tool of war was not lost on the Indian Air Force (IAF). However India at that time was largely locked out of the Western arms market. India also had no diplomatic relation with Israel who was clearly the leader in UAVs. Therefore even while IAF became alive to developments taking place in the field of UAVs it had no access to them. The end of the Cold War marked the beginning of the thaw in India s relations with the West. Ultimately it was the shock of Kargil that brought home the necessity of keeping a constant vigil over several hundreds of kilometres of India s borders. With the improvement of relations with the US and Israel acquisition of UAVs for surveillance and reconnaissance came within the realm of possibility.

Robert Kehler US Army & Lt General John T Sheridan US Army selves to the terminal phase of the threat missiles when as early as 1962 the concept of ballistic missile intercept through the kinetic energy rockets was developed. With the passage of time and technology the ballistic missile defence (BMD) system architecture developed in multiple tiers of defences. The aim being to put up defence-in-depth as a single tier system could neither ensure fool-proof detection nor a leak-proof engagement. The first of the layered system i.e. the lower tier systems were basically meant to defend against short- or medium-range missiles basically in the terminal phase of the trajectory. Their interception was largely endo-atmospheric. Several fully matured and developed systems were fielded and deployed the world over for example the PAC 3 was battle tested in operation Iraqi Freedom. The current technology is driven towards enhancing the reach of this system (PAC-3 MSE) and developing the air launched hit-to-kill version of PAC-3. Similarly the US-Israeli Arrow series of anti-tactical ballistic missiles (ATBMs) fall in this category. Some more systems include the medium extended air defence system (MEADS) BMD system a joint venture of Lockheed Martin EADS and MBDA which are scheduled for initial deployment in 2014 and the Navy Area theatre ballistic missile defence (TBMD) based on Aegis class of ships and equipped with standard missile (SM-3) class of hit-to-kill interceptor. The Russian TMD systems include S-300 PMU-1 S-300 PMU-2 (SA 10E Favorit ) and S-400 Triumf (SA-2 Growler ) an enhanced version of S-300 PMU-3. The Chinese besides the PMU series have an indigenous Hongqi-10 (150 km further enhanced to 200 km) TMD system capable of countering the missile threat both in the terminal as well as mid-course phase of threat trajectory.

After Sputnik 1 Sputnik 2 was launched in the same year and carried the first living passenger a dog named Laika. Russia s Sputnik programme started a space race between the US and Russia. Three months after Sputnik 1 the US launched Explorer 1 on January 31 1958. Since then thousands of satellites have been launched into orbit around the earth and a few have also been placed in orbit around the moon venus etc which have become their artificial satellites. Satellites are used both for civil and military applications like communications navigation weather forecasting intelligence gathering and research. Space stations and human spacecraft in orbit are also satellites. The largest artificial satellite currently orbiting the earth is the International Space Station. About 50 countries have launched their own satellites but the launching capabilities exist only in about 10 countries.

At present about 2 456 satellites are orbiting the earth. Geocentric orbit is further classified by altitude inclination and eccentricity. The commonly used altitude classifications are low earth orbit (LEO) which is below 2 000 km medium earth orbit (MEO) which is higher than that but still below the altitude for geosynchronous orbit at 35 786 km and high earth orbit (HEO) which is an orbit higher than 35 786 km.

The foremost among these are the long-festering dispute over Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) with Pakistan and the unresolved territorial and boundary dispute with China. Since independence on August 15 1947 India has fought four wars with Pakistan (1947-48 1965 1971 and 1999) and one with China (1962). India s internal security environment has been vitiated by a proxy war through which Pakistan has fuelled an uprising in Jammu & Kashmir since 1988-89. Various militant movements in India s Northeastern states and the rising tide of Maoist terrorism in large parts of Central India have also contributed to internal instability.

Antony December 15 2010 Modernisation Dilemma With a personnel strength of approximately 1.2 million soldiers the Indian Army has made a huge contribution towards keeping the nation together particularly in facing internal security challenges. It is a firstrate army but has been saddled for long with second-rate weapons and equipment despite heavy operational commitments on border management and in counter-insurgency operations. The modernisation dilemma that the Indian Army faces is that the budgetary support available for modernisation is grossly inadequate. It can undertake substantive modernisation only by simultaneously effecting large-scale downsizing so as to save on personnel costs--the largest chunk of the Army s annual budget. However it would not be prudent to downsize as the Army s operational commitments on border management and internal security duties require large numbers of manpower-heavy infantry battalions. In his budget speech on February 28 2011 Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee set aside 1 64 425 crore ( 36 billion) for defence during the Financial Year (FY) 2011-12. This is less than two per cent of the country s GDP despite the recommendations of successive Standing Committees on Defence in the Parliament that it should be at least three per cent if the emerging threats and challenges are to be successfully countered.

From a minor littoral force of hand-me-down frigates sloops and craft at the time of independence the Indian Navy has now emerged as the fifth largest naval power in the world.

The tenacity of purpose and the overall corporate conviction that the charted path of force development would be mainly through indigenous capacity has not wavered is a clear testimony to the Navy s sound leadership and rank and file consensus on its identity and self-belief.

Integrating cutting-edge weapons sensors and sophisticated communications with advanced propulsion and power packages from diverse sources to make state-of-the-art ships designed by the Navy is a splendid achievement and the Indian Navy can be justly proud of this heritage.

Emergence of India as the new economic powerhouse has also put additional responsibilities on the shoulders of its armed forces especially the Indian Air Force (IAF). The IAF has aspired for more than a decade now to transform itself from a mere subcontinental tactical force to an intercontinental strategic aerospace power in conformity with other leading air forces in the world. India s economic rise on the world stage coupled with changing geopolitical-cum-security scenario has transformed the IAF s perceptions of its vastly enhanced roles and responsibilities. But has the IAF been able to equip itself adequately to live up to its aspirations or to match its increasing roles and responsibilities a soul-searching mission to rationalise its defence needs. In the 1960s after two quick wars with China and Pakistan various studies were conducted to strengthen the armed forces. As far as the IAF was concerned a force level of up to 64 squadrons (with 45 combat squadrons) was recommended to effectively fight against its belligerent neighbours. The closest that the IAF has been able to come to this was the officially declared figure of 391 2 combat squadrons achieved during the golden era of the 1970s and 1980s. The late 1970s saw the dawn of the golden decade of the IAF with the induction of the Anglo-French Sepecat Jaguar Deep Penetration Strike Aircraft (DPSA) into operational service. This was quickly followed by the induction of the Soviet MiG-23s (both strike and air defence versions) into the IAF in substantial numbers. MiG-27 a fixed-intake improvement of the MiG-23BN followed in quick succession and this variant was also licenceproduced by the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL). At about the same time the IAF also received from the Soviet Union the trisonic (Mach 3) strategic reconnaissance version of the formidable MiG-25 and the MiG-29 air superiority fighters. But the icing on the cake was the prized acquisition of the multi-role Mirage 2000 from France which formed two frontline state-of-the-art combat squadrons in the early 1980s. These also provided much greater teeth in terms of enhanced operational capability and were to show their prowess later during the 1999 Kargil War against Pakistan. These were truly happier times for the IAF but unfortunately the golden period did not last long. The beginning of the 1990s witnessed the then unimaginable and sudden disintegration of the Soviet Union as also the dire financial state that India found itself in.

While the primary thrust of DPP is to acquire equipment for the armed forces expeditiously DPrP aims at promoting indigenous production to reduce dependence on foreign vendors reiterating that self-reliance in defence is of vital importance for both strategic and economic reasons. DPrP stresses the need to synergise and enhance the national competence in producing state-of the-art defence equipment within the price lines and timelines that are globally competitive . For that the policy claims to strive to achieve maximum synergy among the armed forces public sector ordnance factories Indian industry and research and development (R&D) institutions. Claiming credit for building up capabilities in defence R&D ordnance factories and defence public sector undertakings MoD feels that the time has come to achieve self-reliance by harnessing the emerging dynamism of the Indian industry along with the capabilities available in the academia and the R&D institutions. Within the overall aim of ensuring an edge for the Indian forces over their potential adversaries the following objectives have been spelt out in DPrP nTo achieve substantive self-reliance in the design development and production of equipment weapon systems platforms required for defence in as early a time frame as possible. nTo create conditions conducive for the private industry to take an active role in this endeavour. nTo enhance the potential of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in indigenisation. nTo broaden the defence R&D base of the country. Salient Features of the Policy Although DPrP is a collection of statements of intent and no specifics have been provided it indicates the direction in which MoD intends to move. Salient features of the policy are as follows nPreference will be given to indigenous design development and manufacture of defence equipment. Procurement from foreign sources would be resorted to only if the Indian industry is not in a position to make and deliver the required equipment within the timelines laid down by the services keeping the urgency and criticality of the requirement in mind. nEquipment weapon systems and platforms approved in long-term integrated perspective plan (LTIPP) for acquisition after 10 years will generally be designed and developed integrated produced indigenously.

Expenditure incurred on the maintenance and operation of existing equipment and on the procurement of replacement of sanctioned assets falls under the revenue head. On the other hand capital head covers all expenditure incurred to increase assets and potential of the armed forces and for the procurement of new equipment for induction into service. Ideally revenue expenditure should be minimal to spare maximum resources for the modernisation of the forces. As funding of both the heads is done from the defence budget funds can be transferred from one head to another if considered necessary. Defence Procurement Manual 2009 (DPM 2009) contains detailed guidelines for revenue procurements and is applicable to all the three services Ministry of Defence (MoD) and inter-services organisations. DPM 2009 endeavours to ensure greater transparency timely procurement greater competition and optimal utilisation of the defence budget. Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP) on the other hand deals exclusively with capital procurements. The stated aim of DPP is to expedite procurements ensure optimal utilisation of allocated budgetary resources demonstrate the highest degree of probity and public accountability transparency in operations free competition and impartiality and achieve self-reliance in defence equipment. The first version of DPP was promulgated in 2002. It has been subjected to periodic reviews and has undergone major revisions in 2003 2005 2006 and 2008. Significant amendments were issued to DPP 2008 in November 2009. The latest version of DPP 2011 was formally made public on January 13 2011 and is applicable to all procurement cases in which the request for proposals (RFP) is issued after January 1 2011. While retaining the basic objectives of the procedure DPP-2011 strives to expand India s defence industrial base encourage indigenous defence production and reduce defence imports.

While the old adversarial threats due to unresolved borders remain new threats and challenges like terrorism and insurgencies have been added to the old inventory.

In the Indian context it involves formulation of the 15-year longterm integrated perspective plan (LTIPP) by Headquarters Integrated Defence Staff in consultation with the Service Headquarters (Army Navy and Air Force). The five years capital acquisition plan and the annual acquisition plans are derived from the LTIPP and form the basis of working out the capital budget for all major procurements during a year.

The dilemma is only regarding the extent of emphasis that should be laid to acquiring each type of capability. Thus the requirements of the armed forces are vast and wide ranging. Budget Details The defence budget over the last three decades has generally varied between two and three per cent of the GDP which corresponds to 13-17 per cent of the Government expenditure. The Union Budget for the Financial Year (FY) 2011-12 presented to the Parliament on February 28 2011 shows increased defence allocation of 1 64 415.49 crore ( 36 .50 billion). The annual increase in the budgets in the last couple of years has varied from as low as three per cent to as high as 34 per cent as witnessed in FY 2009-10. This was due to the substantial increase in the revenue expenditure to cater to the enhanced pay and allowances sanctioned in the Sixth Pay Commission report. This year s allocation represents 11.59 per cent growth over the previous year s budget. This year s defence budget is only 1.83 per cent of the GDP while last year (FY 2010-11) the defence budget was 2.12 per cent of the GDP. The defence budget was accompanied by the usual remarks from the Finance Minister that any additional requirement for the security of the nation will be provided for.

The process of military modernisation in India is the outcome of several congruent influences. n Sanjay kuMar Abbreviations & Index at the end of the book I 127 SP s Military yearbook 2011-2012 40th Issue REGIONAL BALANCE n the year 2010 India s international profile went up several notches especially with a record number of important global luminaries including important Heads of State visiting New Delhi. On an average New Delhi welcomed one Head of State every fortnight during the preceding year. More significantly starting from the visit of UK s Prime Minister David Cameron in July 2010 and ending with the visit of Russia s President Dmitry Medvedev in the last week of December India enjoyed an unmatched privilege of receiving the Heads of State from all P-5 countries over a span of six months. Among the galaxy of world leaders who visited India in 2010 the visit by the US President Barack Obama in September 2010 succinctly underscored India s rising international profile not only in terms of geopolitical dynamics but also in terms of her projected ability to influence the global economic order. In recent years despite a global economic downturn India has shown tremendous resilience emerging as a favoured destination for global business leaders especially arms manufacturers such as the United States Russia France and the United Kingdom. Interestingly barring China other four Heads of State from P-5 countries who chose to visit India in 2010 had each an underlying agenda --lobbying for the mother of all defence contracts the 126 fighter jets for the IAF which is valued over 10 billion ( 45 000 crore). With its economy averaging 7.3 per cent growth annually over the past decade India s drive to rapidly modernise her military capabilities are increasingly seen as a ray of hope for arms producing countries that are still trying to find out ways to recuperate from the global resource crunch. During his visit to India the US President struck business deals with India worth 20 billion ( 90 000 crore) with stated potentials for generating 53 000 new jobs for his people back home. The defence agreements between the two countries during Obama s visit included among others 10 C-17 Globemaster III heavy-lift transporters worth 4 billion ( 18 000 crore) for the Indian Air Force four P-8I maritime reconnaissance aircraft worth 1.1 billion ( 4 950 crore) for the Indian Navy and over hundred General Electric GE-414 engines for India s light combat aircraft (LCA) Tejas worth 800 million ( 3 600 crore). More significantly from India s viewpoint Obama announced his plans to remove export controls from Indian entities like the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and the Bharat Dynamics Ltd (India s prime production agency for missile systems) as well as many of their respective laboratories. With the US Ministry of Commerce notifying the above changes later on January 24 2011 these companies can easily access technologies which are required critically for India s military modernisation. Drivers for Modernisation A country s defence preparedness is not just the reflection of its real or perceived security threats but is also at times a statement of her economic prowess.

India s security environment is defined by global and regional security concerns together with the growing internal security problems. The conventional threats from traditional adversaries continuing presence of terrorist and fundamentalist forces in its western and eastern neighbourhood has prompted India to maintain high level of defence vigilance and preparedness to face any challenge to its security. The developments across India s western borders are alarming and dangerous as the drift in both Pakistan and Afghanistan shows the lack of state control and breakdown of economy law and order and governance. Both states are staying afloat because of the aid from the United States and the international community. Moreover there is also the ever-present possibility of hostile radical fundamentalist elements gaining access to the weapons of mass destruction in Pakistan. A bigger worry is terrorists launching weapons of mass disturbance--nerve gas radiological attacks and the like. The proxy war conducted by Pakistan against India and terrorist activities unleashed by the various radical jehadi outfits nurtured by them in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) are continuing unabated. In the North-east China s challenge to India s security is looming large on the horizon. Its strategy of encircling India through her neighbours and confining her within the subcontinent is apparent and palpable apart from its outlandish claims on the Indian territory in Arunachal Pradesh. It has vastly improved the infrastructure in the form of roads and airfields opposite the entire Indian border especially opposite Arunachal Pradesh. Internally the country faces a series of low-intensity conflicts characterised by tribal ethnic and left-wing movements and ideologies and these conflicts have the capacity of deflecting the Indian Government from their long-term social and economic development plans. India is also affected by the trafficking in drugs and proliferation of small arms. Thus the security challenges facing India are varied and complex. India s response to these threats and challenges has always been restrained measured and moderate in keeping with its peaceful outlook and reputation as a responsible and peace-loving country.

The Indian Army is fully poised to meet the varied security challenges confronting our country both internal and external. Due to the rapidly changing nature of conflict ranging from conventional to irregular warfare including its proxy war manifestation and the effects of emerging technologies a constant reappraisal is required with resultant improvements. Having laid down an all-encompassing Vision for the Indian Army we are focusing our efforts on some salient issues namely to modernise our Army while concurrently seeking to consolidate and address aspects of hollowness and critical deficiencies. Modernisation based on technology upgradation and induction is an area that remains high on my agenda. The primary areas that are being addressed are aimed at greater battlefield transparency increasing the lethality and precision of firepower capabilities overcoming night blindness and achieving network-centricity. In addition imparting realistic training towards all existing and emerging contingencies as also to prepare our troops for the future battlefield environment is another area of focus that we are addressing. My main focus is presently on transforming the Army into an agile lethal versatile and networked force. This force will be prepared for the emerging security environment and complex challenges of the 21st century. SP s In your view which are the areas of responsibilities as the COAS which work takes most of your time COAS As COAS my areas of responsibilities are large. When I take an eagle s eye view on the security environment prevalent in our immediate and extended neighbourhood I find a complex set of external and internal security challenges confronting our nation across the spectrum of conflict. The regional and global trends show a strategic shift towards balance of interest rather than balance of power . Our armed forces need to be extremely dynamic in measuring up to these challenges. Therefore I feel the greatest responsibility is to hone the Army into a well motivated operationally prepared well-equipped force capable of meeting the security challenges faced by the nation.

In its EEZ the country has sovereign rights to explore and exploit economic assets without encroachment or hindrance from others. The country s overseas trade is more than 513.5 million tonnes over 95 per cent of which by volume and 77 per cent by value moves through the medium of the sea to and from 13 major ports and dozens of smaller ones on either coast. India has island territories on both seaboards. To the east more than 950 kilometres from the Indian mainland are the Andaman and Nicobar Islands stretching 720 kilometres from north to south. The southernmost of these islands is only 150 kilometres from the western tip of the Indonesian archipelago while in the north Myanmar (Coco islands) lies only 35 kilometres away. To the west about 250 kilometres from the mainland are the Lakshadweep group of islands occupying a strategic location astride vital international shipping lanes. India s merchant marine is close to nine million tonnes GRT (gross register tonne) comprising over 700 ships. The country shares maritime boundaries with seven Indian Ocean littoral states. Another example of the importance of the sea is India s current oil consumption which was 2.5 million barrels per day (bbl d) in 2005 and is likely to rise to 5.3 million bbl d by 2025. This will mean a drastic increase in oil imports half of which will come from the Middle East. Any stoppages or even interruptions are likely to have a crippling effect on the economy. Thus India is truly a maritime nation and the sea is critical to its survival and prosperity. It is the role of the Indian Navy to ensure that these interests are adequately safeguarded in peace and war. The Navy will hopefully in the very near future provide the third leg of the nuclear triad which India seeks to develop in order to safeguard its interests as a de facto nuclear weapon state. The relief operations carried out after the devastating tsunami in December 2004 have demonstrated the ability of the Indian Navy to respond with alacrity to the humanitarian needs of the neighbouring countries in the region while simultaneously undertaking disaster relief tasks for fellow citizens in our own coastal states and island territories. Thereafter in 2006 we witnessed the swiftly executed refugee evacuation operation from strife-torn Lebanon where again the Navy rendered succour not just to Indian citizens but also to stranded Sri Lankans and Nepalese. These two successful operations were observed by navies worldwide and they highlighted the fact that the Indian Navy was capable of discharging its tasks commensurate with India s regional status and responsibilities.

How do you visualise capability build-up of Indian Navy to fulfill these responsibilities Admiral Nirmal Verma (CNS) The multidimensional capabilities and professional versatility makes the Indian Navy a catalyst for peace security and stability in the Indian Ocean region (IOR). The Navy has a track record of responding swiftly to regional security requirements by undertaking diverse missions such as humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HADR) combating piracy and terrorism providing search and rescue facilities to those in distress conducting hydrographic surveys in waters of friendly foreign countries and coordinating navigational warnings over vast oceanic and littoral areas. The opportunities these missions have generated has strengthened bilateral relationships enhanced interoperability and helped in sharing best practices with other navies in the IOR. In discharging its responsibilities to safeguard the national maritime interests the Indian Navy assumes a three-pronged approach. First it maintains constant surveillance in our primary areas of interest in order to enhance its maritime domain awareness. Second it maintains credible all-round capabilities to execute core missions and has a robust plan of force accretion to enhance these in the years to come. Third it pursues an active regional engagement plan to combat common concerns as well as enhance the capacities and capabilities of smaller regional nations in the interest of strengthening regional security. Maintaining constant surveillance in our areas of interest requires significant capabilities and the coordinated application of a number Abbreviations & Index at the end of the book of surface airborne and space-based means. Accordingly induction of capable ships and long-range and medium-range maritime patrol aircraft has been planned with augmentation by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) especially for close-coast surveillance. Our force accretion plans also include the induction of modern surface and sub-surface platforms in significant numbers in order to sustain enlarge and sharpen our ability to undertake principal tasks. Our regional engagement philosophy is broad-based and includes confidence building through multi-level exchanges and operational cooperation. We are exploring a variety of mechanisms for sharing maritime domain awareness with other navies in the IOR. We are also augmenting our amphibious capabilities important as they are for the sustenance and protection of our island territories as also for HADR which is vital to a region that is home to 70 per cent of the world s natural disasters. SP s The Indian Navy s maritime strategy propagates an all-round capability building approach. How in your view is the modernisation plan of the Indian Navy progressing CNS The Indian Navy s force development perspective planning is now driven by a conceptual shift from one that considers numbers of platforms to one that concentrates upon capabilities . In terms of force accretion in the immediate future we are acquiring ships submarines and aircraft in accordance with the Navy s current maritime capabilities perspective plan.

Subsequently Ouragan Mystere Canberra Hunter and Gnat entered service during the 1950s. Today the IAF is trying hard to accelerate its modernisation acquisition programmes not only to regain but substantially improve its operational capabilities. Some major programmes have been brought to fruition while others are being pursued vigorously. Abbreviations & Index at the end of the book Looking Back On October 8 1932 the IAF Bill was passed allowing creation of the Number 1 Squadron of the IAF with only one flight equipped with four obsolescent Westland Wapiti aircraft at Drigh Road Karachi on April 1 1933. The flight was commanded by a RAF officer and had five pilots and the first batch of Hawai Sepoys .

In addition the force will have to vigorously pursue development and acquisition of fifth generation fighter aircraft. Manifestations of flight capabilities (the third dimension) in military affairs have witnessed phenomenal changes. The term air power is used to denote the flight potential of military services. Air power is in itself an indicator of its undeniable impact on modern warfare. The role of the Air Force can make or mar the war potential of a modern-day state. Recent international conflicts have proved the overwhelming importance of air power. In the Indian context the contribution of the IAF to the national security effort was emphatically driven home during the Kargil conflict in 1999 when intruding Pakistani soldiers stunned by the strike potential of the IAF and resolute Indian response retreated from their positions inside the line of control (LoC). However its current effectiveness notwithstanding the origin of the IAF was very humble. to about 10 squadrons. For its achievements during the war the service was awarded the prefix Royal in March 1945. The division of assets and manpower of the armed forces at the time of independence in August 1947 reduced the force level to a little more than half its original size. Two months later the RIAF went into action in Kashmir which saw the landing of Dakotas at what was termed the roof of the world . On January 26 1950 India became a Republic and the RIAF dropped the Royal prefix. The 1950s witnessed rapid expansion and modernisation of IAF both in terms of capital assets and infrastructure. The modernisation process was kicked off in 1948 with the arrival of the Vampire--the first combat jet of IAF. Subsequently Ouragan Mystere Canberra Hunter and Gnat entered service during the 1950s. Closer strategic and military cooperation with the USSR resulted in the IAF acquiring the MiG-21 supersonic aircraft in 1963 which then went on to pave the way for subsequent induction of various other combat aircraft and weapon systems of Soviet origin. From this point onwards the IAF inventory acquired a distinct Soviet orientation which is still in evidence 48 years after the first induction of the MiG-21. This also had a great bearing on the evolving shape and structure of the aviation industry in India. The 1965 war saw the IAF aggressively using the famous Gnat demolishing the myth of the F-86 Sabre being the best combat aircraft of that time. The Gnat again played a significant role in the 1971 conflict scoring a number of kills in the air.

We are transforming into a potent strategic force with full spectrum capability in keeping with our national aspirations. The IAF vision addresses not only the physical security of India but also the protection of our core values and enhanced national interests based on the country s growth profile and aspirations. In the coming decade the IAF envisions itself to be a modern force with cutting-edge technologies flexible adaptable and nimble. While I would be articulating my personal vision for the IAF only when I take over I can mention at this stage that people and mission would be the focus. It is only when we align the entire human resource with the mission of the IAF we will be able to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing security environment. bers and the only way forward in the coming years is to go up. Induction of new platforms and sensors over the next five years would ensure that the IAF retains its cutting-edge at all times. On a different note I would like to reiterate that capability building and not number crunching is the way to achieve this. SP s Do you feel that in a unipolar world it would be desirable for India to develop a long-term strategic and military partnership with the USA in order to play a leading role in the region CAS Polarity today is determined not only by military power but is also a function of economic power and the power of human capital. I do not agree that we are today in a truly unipolar world. Try telling that to the Europeans or the Chinese. I think we are headed towards a multipolar world order with India displaying immense potential to contribute to this multipolarity. IAF has very cooperative and symbiotic relationships with most of the air forces in the world today including that of the USA. We similarly have robust strategic relationships with Russia and look to building strong strategic relationships with the EU and countries like Brazil and South Africa.

Currently there are eight defence public sector undertakings (DPSUs) and 41 ordnance factories including two that are in the process of being established one each at Nalanda in Bihar and at Korwa in Uttar Pradesh. The mandate of the DPSUs and ordnance factories is to provide the armed forces state-of-the-art equipment and achieve high degree of self-reliance in defence production. Today these establishments have a wide range of infrastructure for manufacture and maintenance of aircraft warships submarines heavy vehicles missiles guns ammunition components for defence equipment earthmovers communication and electronic devices alloys and special purpose steel. Over the years their capabilities and capacity have been augmented and modernised by the development and induction of new technologies through foreign collaboration to meet the emerging requirements of the armed forces. In addition the capacities of the civil sector are also utilised for defence production through outsourcing joint ventures and commercialisation of new products developed from time to time by defence research establishments. Defence equipment being highly technology intensive demand high levels of precision and quality control during manufacture. The Directorate Generals of Quality Assurance and Aeronautical Quality Assurance as also the Directorate of Standardisation have been established to ensure the required quality levels.

Despite the recommendations of various committees instituted by the government of the day the internal security threats were never so acute as to seriously induce the political leadership to reform the internal security apparatus. However as the challenges and threats to the internal security of India grew the Indian Government felt compelled to focus on this dimension of national security. It is now widely acknowledged that there is more to security than purely military factors. Today s definition of security acknowledges political economic environmental social and human thread among other strands that impact the concept of security. Today it is the concern for security of the lowest common denominator of every society namely the human being or civil security as the Americans term it which has resulted in the development of the concept of human security with focus on the individual and the community. Therefore the definition of security is related to the ability of the state to perform the function of protecting the well being of its people. P. Chidambaram at the Chief Ministers Conference on Internal Security held in New Delhi on August 17 2009 said Let me recall the three challenges to internal security--terrorism insurgency in the North-eastern states and left-wing extremism or Naxalism. Each one of them shares many characteristics with the other two. At the same time each one of them is significantly different from the other two. We have one instrument to confront and defeat the three challenges and that is the police. In the final analysis it is the policemen and the policewomen who can help us win these battles. To that policemen and policewomen this conference must send out a clear message that the government at every level is duty bound to provide them every kind of support--monetary material and moral. The government s resolve to reform the internal security apparatus of the country was apparent in the Minister s statement. Internal Security Management Internal security management has been an important component of India s national security management ever since independence in 1947. The Ministry of Home Affairs of the Government of India handles India s internal security management mechanism. In the formative years after independence India focused its energies mainly on the maintenance of law and order communal peace and harmony crime control and counter-insurgency which was mainly confined to the Northeast in the early years. But in the past five decades or so besides the ongoing insurgency in the Northeast the focus is also on the extinguished insurgency in Punjab the dissidence and proxy Challenges to Internal Security Consequent to the Mumbai terror attacks on November 26 2008 the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government went into high drive to implement the internal security reforms.

In the early years after independence the Indian Government focused its energies mainly on the maintenance of law and order communal peace and harmony crime control and counter-insurgency mainly confined to the Northeast. However in the past five decades or so the ongoing insurgency in the Northeast the extinguished insurgency in Punjab the dissidence and proxy war in Jammu & Kashmir the burgeoning Naxalite violence which is currently affecting 20 states and Union territories (223 districts) the jehadi terrorism unleashed by our unscrupulous western neighbour poor governance in most states all put together have become a serious threat which can destabilise the Indian state if allowed to grow unchecked. This realisation seemed to have dawned on a sluggish United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government after the November 26 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai. In the days following the attacks people came out on the streets though peacefully to protest the inaction on part of the government in facing growing internal threats and challenges. As the public anger became palpable the government was forced to act speedily. India s Home Minister and the Chief Minister of Maharashtra became the first two political casualties. A spate of reforms which were already in the pipeline were announced by the new Home Minister. Meanwhile the perception was growing stronger that India s external and internal security was getting inextricably linked especially on its western borders. A large number of India s internal security problems are connected to Jehadi groups based in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK). Pakistan s intelligence agencies and the military are funding training and abetting terror in India and these linkages now stand fully exposed. However despite a restrained but tough stance taken initially the national leadership has now decided to get back to the negotiation table with Pakistan both at the official and at the Track 2 levels. The succeeding paragraphs give some relevant details of India s internal security reforms or the lack of it in certain areas. Maritime security has not been included as that forms a major input by itself and has to be dealt with separately. In view of the repeated terror attacks on the Indian soil and the disjointed actions by the state government and the police following the attacks in Mumbai and the public outcry thereafter the government was forced to speedily undertake a number of internal security reviews and adopt measures which could either pre-empt future terror attacks or at least improve the crises management after such attacks occur. Several measures have been taken or are under way since then.

The opposition cried blue murder labelling her having links with the Maoists. There were voices of dissent within the Congress too. The CPI(M) accused the Trinamool Congress of being hand in glove with Maoists and asked the Centre to explain the presence of extremists in the Lalgarh rally. Why the Maoists let Mamata invade their sanctum sanctorum is anybody s guess but may be they sensed a chance to capitalise on our legacy of criminalisation of politics United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) Bhindranwala Bodos Purulia arms drop and what have you. The political clash in Jhargram in the West Bengal assembly elections between the Trinamool Congress and People s Committee against Police Atrocities (PCPA) candidate surfaced a new poser especially since PCPA fielded none other than jailed Maoist hardliner Chhatradhar Mahato revered by Maoists. Perhaps the Trinamool Congress did not want to leave even a single constituency uncontested as part of their plan to storm West Bengal with an overwhelming majority. However if the overall plan was to draw Maoists into the political mainstream it has not worked. Jhargram is the only assembly seat in West Bengal with a Maoist backed candidate.

Thus the security of maritime environment including coastal security is of paramount importance for any country which has a long coastline. Emerging new threats like terrorism and piracy apart from the traditional threats like smuggling poaching of marine life and illegal immigration have thrown fresh challenges for coastal security. Multiple threats warrant responses from multiple agencies which complicates the scenario. This necessitates the requirement of having appropriate maritime regulations so that safety and security of inhabitants resources and environment is secured. It is important that the regulations are so made that the multiple agencies involved in the handling of maritime security do so in a coherent and integrated manner while preserving each agency s primary responsibility. The solutions arrived at should be based on the maritime threat economic realities existing assets current organisations and legacy systems. They will involve coastal underwater surface land airborne and space capabilities for optimum domain knowledge rapid situation analysis resulting in faster decision-making. The forces deployed for coastal security must be able to adapt to the rapidly changing security environment from preventive to defensive to reactive. ries. India s total number of islands is 1 197 which accounts to a stretch of 2 094 km additional border or coastline. The land borders have been continuously in focus due to the hostile nature of certain neighbouring countries and disputed borders. However the same is not true of the coastal areas. There are some disputed areas in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) but apart from this there are problems of smuggling terrorism and illegal fishing. The coasts of Maharashtra and Gujarat are strategically located and prosperous which makes them prone to smuggling poaching of seafood and anti-national activities. Smuggling of gold arms and explosives has been quite common in this area. For the serial blasts in Mumbai during 1993 explosives were smuggled through Raigad on the Maharashtra coast. The Government of India and the state governments were aware of the possible problems but were somewhat complacent in their actions which resulted in the terrorist attack in Mumbai on November 26 2008.This resulted in triggering the government agencies to put appropriate mechanisms in place for effective coastal security. There is continuous movement of all types of vessels for trade fishing military policing sports and so on. It is understood that there are about 1 50 000 small fishing boats with no modern navigation means or communications. Management of such a coastline including the maritime zone is by itself a formidable task and it becomes even more complex and challenging if the template of terrorism and piracy is superimposed upon it.

SP s Military yearbook 2011-2012 40th Issue REGIONAL BALANCE Central Asia Central Asia is a region that comprises five states that belonged to the erstwhile Soviet Union--Kazakhstan Kyrgyztan Tajikistan Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. It is a region that once used to be called the centre of the world. Given its abundant energy resources and by virtue of its geographical location it has consistently been in the limelight. In the 19th century it was the theatre of the classic great game which was played out between the Russian and the British Empires. Later it became a prized possession of the Soviet Union. The collapse of the Soviet Union led to the independence of the Central Asian states. The 9 11 events brought further global attention to this region reiterating its geostrategic relevance. Along with this the presence of hydrocarbons has again made this region important. The key players in this region are the US Russia and China. The Fergana Valley is the best-suited land in Central Asia for hosting a large population. However Soviet leader Joseph Stalin split the valley up between the Soviet Republics that would become the countries of Central Asia to ensure the region remained divided. Uzbekistan controls most of the basin itself Tajikistan controls the most accessible entrance to the valley from the west and Kyrgyzstan controls the high ground around the valley. Uzbekistan also controls several exclaves within Kyrgyzstan s portion of the valley affording the Uzbek Government and Uzbek citizens (including militants) access into Kyrgyz territory. These complex geographic and political divisions ensure that no one country can dominate Central Asia s core and hence Central Asia itself. Central Asia is also referred to as the backyard of Russia and China. It has emerged as the focal point of rivalry between the US on one hand and Moscow and Beijing on the other. Post-9 11 Central Asia also emerged as the epicentre of geopolitical changes on a global Pakistan-Afghanistan Region The region spanning Pakistan and Afghanistan in South Asia has been the focus of the global war on terrorism since the catastrophic events of 9 11. Today international terrorism has come to occupy a prominent position on the security agenda of virtually every state. Additionally Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) continues to stimulate terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir since 1989 and now Pakistan-inspired terrorist activity has spread across India bedevilling relationship between the two countries. The current impasse in their relationship is the result of Mumbai terrorist attacks on November 26 2008 which emanated from Pakistan. The new political dispensation of coalition politics in Pakistan has not stabilised while the resurgence of Taliban in the western provinces of Pakistan opposite Afghanistan namely Federally Administered Tribal Area (FATA) and Baluchistan has further complicated the governance in Pakistan. The war in Afghanistan commenced on October 7 2001 and marked the beginning of the US led war on international terrorism in the wake of the 9 11 attacks. The purpose of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) was to capture Osama bin Laden destroy the Al-Qaeda and dethrone the Taliban regime. While the operation achieved most of its stated objectives it has failed to establish stability in Afghanistan due to increased warlord activity and the resurgence of the Taliban activity in Afghanistan.

Both the regions have countries that are mostly underdeveloped and poor. Central Asia lies at the crossroad of Europe and Asia and together with South Asia constitutes one of the most unstable regions of the 21st century. It encompasses the world s largest landmass (39 95 800 sq km) and has vast natural resources including significant reserves of oil and gas. Historically it has acted as a crossroad for the movement of people goods and ideas between Europe Western Asia South Asia and East Asia. On the other hand South Asia is strategically important because it lies astride the main sea routes from West Asia to the Far East. Further India s economic growth and dynamism has made South Asia an attractive destination for foreign investment. Despite the global economic meltdown India s gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to grow at the rate of eight per cent during 2010 and more thereafter. scale. The US became the main economic donor and assumed security responsibility enabling it to establish military presence in the region and set up military bases in four out of the five Central Asian states. Due to intensely competitive ties among countries of the region as well as the key players namely the US Russia and China the American presence now has reduced. It is interesting to note that while each major player tries to accomplish its national interests through their grand strategies the countries of Central Asia are using their own strategies to balance the relationships which seem threatening. Three different strategies have been employed to balance out the major players including strategic partnership non-alignment and a multi-vectored approach. The key to what is known as Kazakhstan s multi-vectored approach is to build strategic partnerships with all three powers. Today this policy has eroded somewhat under pressure from Russia s Eurasec Gazprom and the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) but it nonetheless remains in place. Kazakhstan s successful campaign to gain the Organisation of Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) presidency is evidence of a more recent effort to engage Europeans as a fourth element in the balance. The major attraction for key players as also countries like India Japan and the European Union is the vast energy reserves of the Caspian basin.

The Taliban can sustain itself indefinitely according to a December 2009 briefing by the top US intelligence officer in Afghanistan. On December 1 2009 US President Barack Obama announced that he would escalate the US military involvement by deploying an additional 30 000 soldiers over a period of six months. He also proposed to begin troop withdrawals within 18 months. On January 26 2010 at the International Conference on Afghanistan in London which brought together some 70 countries and organisations Afghan President Hamid Karzai told world leaders that he intended to reach out to the top echelons of the Taliban within a few weeks with a peace initiative.

Doubts on the success of the war in Afghanistan intensified after the United States diplomatic cables leak by WikiLeaks as the European Union President Herman Van Rompuy was quoted saying to the US Ambassador to Belgium Howard W. Gutman that EU no longer believes in the success of the military mission in Afghanistan. He also added Europe is doing it [war in Afghanistan] and will go along out of deference to the United States but not out of deference to Afghanistan. South Asia The South Asian scene has been marred by hostility between nucleararmed India and Pakistan and even more by internal unrest in most of the countries of this region. India is battling terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir in its North-eastern states and intermittently in the rest of the country. Left wing extremism (Naxalite violence) which has affected 20 states and about 220 districts of the Indian Union nearly 40 per cent of India s geographical area is becoming more and more virulent virtually overwhelming state authority in certain places. In neighbouring Nepal the fall of the Maoist-led Government in May 2009 over the sensitive question of the integration of the Maoist cadres into the Nepalese Army and civil-military relations had brought political instability in the country. The deadlock was finally resolved when the Maoists the largest single party decided to withdraw their own candidate and supported Jhalanath Khanal the chairman of the leftist Communist Party of Nepal who became the Prime Minister The political instability resulted in delay in drafting the Constitution of the country and has adversely affected the economy of Nepal. In Sri Lanka with the defeat of LTTE and the demise of Prabhakaran a new chapter has opened. Rehabilitation of the Tamil population will provide long-term peace to this war-torn country. In Bangladesh the massive mandate for change given to the Awami League by the voters presents an opportunity for India and Bangladesh to work towards a better relationship which had stagnated during the BNPled government. New Delhi and Dhaka agreement to sign a 15-year interim accord on sharing the waters of common rivers Teesta and Feni on January 10 2011 is being seen as a major development in India-Bangladesh Central & South aSia relations. The agreement is expected to be signed during Prime Minister Manmohan Singh s visit to Dhaka this year. The discussions include formulation of a working plan on the sharing of the waters of other common rivers--Dharla Dudhkumar Manu Khowai Gumti and Muhuri. Pakistan having earlier encouraged trained and funded terrorist groups including the Taliban is now plagued by terrorism insurgency and sectarian violence within its territory. Pakistan is passing through an unprecedented political economic and social crisis exacerbated by the record floods in July-August 2010. At one point approximately one-fifth of Pakistan s total land area was under water. The floods have lowered agricultural output and contributed to a jump in inflation and reconstruction costs will strain the limited resources of the government. The Islamic radical elements continue to pose a threat to stability in Pakistan. Both India and Pakistan face the challenge of dealing with an increasingly Talibanised Pakistan where the institutions of governance and particularly the army are coming under the sway of Taliban ideology. The United States has been exerting pressure on Pakistan to send its troops into North Waziristan after Pak Army s successful military action in Swat and South Waziristan. Pakistan has ultimately agreed to launch military operations in North Waziristan but has said that it alone will decide its timings. Pakistan also remains ambivalent on dealing with militant groups in PoK and particularly the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT). It has still not taken any credible action against the terrorists who perpetrated the Mumbai attacks on November 26 2008. Addressing the 16th SAARC Summit at Thimpu on April 28 2010 Prime Minister Manmohan Singh likened the 25-year-old SAARC to a glass half-empty warned that the region faces the risk of marginalisation and stagnation if the member countries fail to build it as a grouping that is better connected and better empowered. He announced the setting up of India Endowment for Climate Change in South Asia to help member countries in meeting urgent adaptation and capacity building needs. He also proposed setting up of Climate Innovation Centres in South Asia to develop sustainable energy technologies based on indigenous resource endowments. Singh said there was a need for the member countries to rediscover our shared heritage and build our common future as he pitched for free movement of goods services and people across South Asia. At the summit India and seven other South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) nations facing threats posed by terrorism and climate change pledged to jointly combat the twin challenges.

Unique in the post-Soviet Central Asian region for its significant and sustained economic growth which has translated into consistent standard of living increases for the population Kazakhstan has also had a measured foreign policy since independence. Although its two economically and militarily sizeable neighbours--Russia and China--are perceived as threatening by some Kazakhs it is not in a military sense. Rather Kazakhs worry about Russian and Chinese investors exerting influence as a result of economic power and they express concern about political bullying. They have managed these problems predominantly by maintaining good relations with these countries as well as building ties with the United States. Kazakhstan has sought not so much to balance any one partner against others as it has to ensure that a network of good relationships prevents conflict. In its own region Kazakhstan has aspired to Central Asian leadership with variable success. Tiny neighbour Kyrgyzstan is generally acquiescent to Kazakh pressures and influence while Uzbekistan has tended to be more hostile with its own goals of local hegemony. Turkmenistan has remained singularly isolationist and Tajikistan primarily focused on its internal problems. None of these countries pose a significant military threat. Although Uzbekistan has mined borders with its Tajik and Kyrgyz neighbours and relations with Kazakhstan have been tense (in part because both countries aspire to lead the region) there is little concern about significant state-to-state military conflict. Kazakhstan is a strategic fulcrum in the vast Central Asian-Caspian Basin zone a region rich in energy resources and a potential gateway for commerce and communications between Europe and Asia. It is also an area that faces a vast number of security challenges. Ensuring a stable and secure Central Asia is important for the world and for Kazakhstan which has a vital stake in the security of this region. The security perspective of this region can be appreciated by considering the following factors n Asian Security Because of its proximity to Russia China Iran and the South Asian subcontinent Kazakhstan s security and stability is an increasingly of vital interest to all major powers. n Afghanistan Central Asia is a key area for the US and NATO military operations in Afghanistan against Taliban insurgents and Al-Qaeda militants. Central Asia is a crucial conduit for the US and NATO troops and supplies into Afghanistan. The US officials recently reached new agreements with Russia Kazakhstan and other Central Asian countries to allow Afghan bound non-military supplies through their territories.

Australia though not strictly a part of the region has been included because of its strategic location astride the Indian and Pacific Oceans. The three important powers in the region are--the US China and Japan. China is the largest country in this region and a major concern for the other countries of the region who wish to cope with its growing economic and military might. China while being apprehensive of the US hegemony and assertiveness is also aware that the latter s presence in the area prevents an independent military role for Japan its historical antagonist. Four major issues continue to impact the security environment in East Asia--ChinaJapan relations North Korea Taiwan and international terrorism. Japan s long chain of invasions and war crimes in China between 1894 and 1945 as well as modern Japan s attitude towards its past are major issues affecting the current and future Sino-Japanese relations. The ice was broken in 2006 when Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited China and the ice began to thaw when Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao visited Japan in 2007. These two Prime Ministerial visits set the stage for President Hu Jintao s warm-spring visit to Japan between May 6 and 11 2008. The relations have been steadily improving between Japan and China. Japan China and Republic of Korea (South Korea) have been regularly holding talks as a part of Tripartite Cooperation. The tenth anniversary of the trilateral cooperation was held in Beijing on October 10 2009. On May 29 2010 on the occasion of the third trilateral summit meeting they announced the Trilateral Cooperation Vision 2020. The major issues discussed included--Institutionalisation and enhancement of trilateral partnership Sustainable economic cooperation for common prosperity Cooperation in environmental protection Promotion of friendly relations through the expansion of human and cultural exchange and cooperation and joint efforts for regional and international peace and stability. Japan-China Security Dialogue has been held since December 1993 and the 12th round of dialogue took place in Beijing on January 20 2011. These dialogues have served as confidence building measures as both sides exchanged views on each other s security and defence policies and regional issues. The 1st Japan-China counter-terrorism consultations were held in Beijing on January 6 2011. The consultations were held between Takaaki Kojima Ambassador in charge of International CounterTerrorism Cooperation Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan and Ambassador Luo Zhaohui Director General of the Department of External Security Affairs Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China. In order to tackle the issue more effectively they reaffirmed to utilise existing international and regional fora such as the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) 3 ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) and East Asia Summit (EAS) and to play an active and leading role in cooperation with each other. In this context they expressed their intent to cooperate for the early convening of the Japan-China-Republic of Korea (ROK) Trilateral Counter-Terrorism Consultations which is specified in the Trilateral Cooperation Vision 2020 adopted at the Japan-ChinaROK Trilateral Summit in May 2010. On August 30 2009 after 54 years of one-party rule the Japanese voted overwhelmingly to usher in a completely new government and a new way of thinking. The Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) which ruled Japan since 1955 was completely rejected. Obtaining only 119 out of 480 seats of the House of Representatives (the lower Diet) the LDP took a second seat to the younger and fresher Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ). The DPJ won 308 seats in the House ensuring that their leader Yukio Hatoyama would become Prime Minister. The DPJ s victory guarantees that much change will come to Japan. In the first few weeks of tenure Prime Minister Hatoyama called for the complete transformation of the traditional government-bureaucracy relationship the need to rework Japan s economic recovery plan and has called for a review of the US troops stationed in Japan. However only after eight months in office he announced his resignation saying that he would step down over his broken campaign promise to move a US military base off the southern island of Okinawa. He was followed by Prime Minister Naoto Kan who took over even as Japan battles a strong currency a weak economy and a bulging public debt. Kan has vowed to cap spending and debt issuance to rein in a public debt already twice the size of Japan s 5 trillion economy the second largest in the world after the US. The magnitude-9 earthquake that hit Japan s north-east coast on March 11 caused a massive tsunami that devastaed the coastline. The disasters knocked out power and cooling systems at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant about 140 miles (225 km) north-east of Tokyo setting off explosions fires and large radiation leaks at the facility. Official reports released earlier in the week said the damage and leakage was worse than previously thought with nuclear fuel in three reactors like melting through their main cores and larger containtment vessels. the reports also said radiation that leaked into the air amounted to about one-sixth of the Chernobyl nuclear disater in 1986. Hundreds of plant workers are still scrambling to bring the crippled Fukushima reactors to a cold shutdown by early next year and end of the crisis. The accident has forced more than 80 000 residents to evacuate from their homes around the plant. The disaster has renewed a national debate on the use of nuclear power in Japan which has few natural resources and is heavily reliant on atomic energy.

In its annual report to the Congress in 2010 the US Department of Defence notes The PLA has made modest improvements in the transparency of China s military and security affairs. However many uncertainties remain regarding how China will use its expanding military capabilities. The limited transparency in China s military and security affairs enhances uncertainty and increases the potential for misunderstanding and miscalculation. Tensions between North and South Korea remain very high following the sinking of a South Korean warship the Cheonan that killed 46 sailors and an exchange of artillery fire in November 2010 across the disputed western maritime border that left four South Koreans dead. The latest incident also comes as North Korea begins transferring power from ailing leader Kim Jong-il to his son Kim Jong-un--a process that some analysts believe is behind North Korea s recent actions. On the nuclear issue involving North Korea there has been no substantive movement. International talks involving the two Koreas China Russia Japan and the US aimed at ending North Korea s nuclear ambitions remain permanently stalled despite Chinese calls for them to resume. The revelation in November 2010 that North Korea has a modern uranium enrichment facility with at least 1 000 centrifuges potentially offering Pyongyang another route to a nuclear weapon made further talks even less likely. The US officials said they were stunned at the scale of the facility although not surprised that it existed. Relations between China and Taiwan are improving. A trade pact between China and Taiwan widely seen as the most significant agreement since civil war divided them in 1949 has come into effect. The Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement (ECFA) cuts tariffs on 539 Taiwanese exports to China and 267 Chinese products entering Taiwan. The majority of people in Taiwan expect the deal to bring economic benefits. But opponents fear it will make the island too dependent on China which still considers it a renegade province. The deal is seen as the culmination of efforts by Taiwan s President Ma Ying-jeou who has vowed to reduce tension. It is hoped that the ECFA signed by Chinese and Taiwanese leaders in June will boost bilateral trade that already totals 110 billion ( 4 95 000 crore) a year. Since the Bali bombing in 2002 crackdowns by various governments in the region encouraged and in some cases supported by the US Government and military are believed to have weakened Jemmah Islamiyah (JI) to such an extent that it essentially is no longer a regional organisation but rather is one confined to Indonesia with some individuals still operating in the southern Philippines. The degrading of JI s leadership structure is believed to have altered the group s strategy. More violent anti-Western JI members have formed breakaway cells. In September 2009 Indonesian authorities claimed they had killed Noordin Mohammed Top the leader of one such cell. Noordin is believed to have been responsible for organising the near simultaneous July 17 2009 bombings of the J.W. Marriot and Ritz-Carlton hotels in Jakarta. The bombings were the first successful anti-Western terrorist attack in Indonesia in four years. Their sophistication triggered speculation that Al-Qaeda had renewed ties with top. To combat the threat the US has pressed countries in the region to arrest suspected terrorist individuals and organisations funded and trained Indonesia s elite counter-terrorist unit and deployed troops to the southern Philippines to advise the Philippine military in their fight against the violent Abu Sayyaf Group. It has also launched a Regional Maritime Security Initiative to enhance security in the Straits of Malacca increased intelligence sharing operations restarted military-military relations with Indonesia and provided or requested Congress for substantial aid to Indonesia and the Philippines. Since 2001 Thailand and the United East asia pacific rim & australia States have substantially increased their anti-terrorism cooperation. Nearly two months after the first general elections Myanmar on January 31 2011 convened its two-chambered national Parliament. The first session witnessed the official ending of five decades of military rule but critics claim that top generals continue to hold the real power. The first session also brought into effect a new Constitution. In the Parliament the military-backed Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP) members contest a vast majority of seats while the remaining quarter is reserved for serving members of the armed forces. Aung San Suu Kyi s opposition party did not win any seat in the Parliament because her party had boycotted the November elections which had been widely described as sham by western governments and democracy activists. Former Culture Minister Khin Aung Myint was appointed as Upper House Speaker shortly after the first Parliamentary session began. The military junta s number three Thura Shwe Mann stepped down from his military ranks to run for election as a civilian was elected as Lower House Speaker. It is believed that either Mann or junta leader Than Shwe will be President in the new government. India s relations with its extended neighbourhood have received a fillip with the formulation of its Look East policy in early 1990s. Forging comprehensive and mutually beneficial bonds with SouthEast Asia has been the cornerstone of this policy. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh speaking at the India-ASEAN Summit at Hanoi on October 30 2010 said that India s economy was expected to witness a sustained growth rate of 9-10 per cent in the coming years which would offer many opportunities for trade and investment. The summit came out with a five-year plan of action outlining the roadmap for enhanced multifaceted cooperation. The plan of action contains 82 points identified for implementation to tap the vast potential in various fields. Describing it as an ambitious roadmap for implementation of partnership of peace progress and shared prosperity between the two sides Singh said that it shows the desire to develop a multifaceted India-ASEAN relationship. Manmohan Singh said that India believed that ASEAN is the core around which the process of economic integration of the Asia-Pacific region should be built. The India-ASEAN Trade in Goods (TIG) Agreement was signed in Bangkok on August 13 2009 after six years of negotiations and it came into force on January 1 2010. Seen as the world s largest FTA covering a market of almost 1.8 billion people with a combined GDP of 2.8 trillion the India-ASEAN pact envisages tariff liberalisation of over 90 per cent of products traded between the two dynamic regions. Tariffs on over 4 000 product lines will be eliminated by 2016 at the earliest.

A series of major investments such as the 40 billion ( 1 76 700 crore) Gorgon Liquid Natural Gas project will significantly expand the resources sector. Australia also has a large services sector and is a significant exporter of natural resources energy and food. Key tenets of Australia s trade policy include support for open trade and the successful culmination of the Doha Round of multilateral trade negotiations particularly for agriculture and services. The Australian economy grew for 17 consecutive years before the global financial crisis. Subsequently the Kevin Rudd Government introduced a fiscal stimulus package worth over 50 billion ( 2 20 900 crore) to offset the effect of the slowing world economy while the Reserve Bank of Australia cut interest rates to historic lows. These policies--and continued demand for commodities especially from China--helped the Australian economy rebound after just one quarter of negative growth. The economy grew by 1.2 per cent during 2009--the best performance in the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). Unemployment originally expected to reach 8-10 per cent peaked at 5.7 per cent in late 2009 and fell to 5.1 per cent in 2010. As a result of an improved economy the budget deficit is expected to peak below 4.2 per cent of GDP and the government could return to budget surpluses as early as 2015. Australia was one of the first advanced economies to raise interest rates with seven rate hikes between October 2009 and November 2010. The Julia Gillard Government is focused on raising Australia s economic productivity to ensure the sustainability of growth and continues to manage the symbiotic but sometimes tense economic relationship with China. Australia is engaged in the Trans-Pacific partnership talks and ongoing free trade agreement negotiations with China Japan and Korea.

A long-term strategic blueprint for the future of Australia s armed forces warned that war could be possible in the AsiaPacific region in the next two decades as emerging powers such as China flexed their military might. The United States would continue its military dominance and be an indispensable ally for Australia but as emerging or resurgent powers such as China India and Russia tested US primacy there was a small but still concerning possibility of growing confrontation between some of these powers. The paper said that China would be the strongest Asian military power by a considerable margin and a major power of China s stature can be expected to develop a globally significant military capability befitting its size. But the pace scope and structure of China s military modernisation have the potential to give its neighbours a cause for concern if not carefully explained and if China does not reach out to others to build confidence regarding its military plans. The paper said that greater engagement with Beijing was essential for encouraging transparency about Chinese military capabilities and intentions and securing greater cooperation in areas of shared interest.

Due to this perceived Eurocentrism international organisations such as the United Nations have replaced Middle East with the term Western Asia. Except for Israel a Jewish country all other states of West Asia and North Africa are Muslim countries. Ethnically most of the Muslim states are Arab and predominantly Sunni. The exceptions are Iraq which is largely dominated by Shias and Iran which has both non-Arab and Shia populace. This region is the birthplace of three of the world s most widespread religions--Judaism Christianity and Islam. West Asia is an area of unique historical importance. Huge oil deposits which were discovered in the early 20th century have further augmented its strategic importance as the economies of a number of developed countries are critically dependent on its oil. Saudi Arabia is geographically the biggest country in West Asia. It is also the richest as it has the largest oil reserve. Iran Iraq and some of the smaller countries like Kuwait and UAE also have huge oil deposits. Politically most of the states are monarchies sheikhdoms or single party dictatorships and enjoy very little democratic freedom. The Israel-Palestine struggle Iraq war and insurgency and fragrance from the Jasmine Revolution which overthrew Tunisia s hated President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali is spreading over the larger West Asia-North Africa region especially to Egypt Yemen and Jordan. The protests in Egypt have already ended Hosni Mubarak s 30-year oppressive rule in February 2011. By all indications Arab citizens were watching Egypt s protests with hope. Most people in the Arab League s 22 countries share the Tunisians and Egyptians dislike with corrupt dictatorial regimes which don t provide basic public services or relieve food shortages and high prices. The Arab states haven t done well by their people. Even the oil-rich ones have not educated them and created social opportunity. Under external pressure and recent effects of the global slowdown many governments have further cut food and fuel subsidies thus increasing people s suffering. Most young Arabs are moderately educated aware of the world and aspire to get jobs in a modern economy. Such jobs are a rarity. The youth have no future. Their frustration is aggravated by denial of liberties. So Egypt s upsurge could well be replicated in other Arab countries. People s bottled-up anger and frustration are the same everywhere as is lack of freedom. The democratic deficit in the Arab world is huge. Elections if and when they take place are typically rigged--as in Egypt recently when the ruling party increased its Parliamentary majority from 75 per cent to 95 per cent. Only three Arab countries can be called some kind of a democracy--Lebanon the Palestinian Territories and Iraq. Lebanon is a plural society with Shias Sunnis Christians and Druze Muslims which holds free elections. But its democracy has a denominational character with the top offices being divided up between religious communities and powerful families. The Palestinian territories had free and fair elections in 2006. But Hamas which won a plurality was excluded from the Palestinian Authority s government. Its state power is confined to Gaza under Israel s occupation. In Iraq the democratic process runs within a constitution and broad-sweep policy framework dictated by the US after the 2003 occupation. Most other Arab states are in paralysis where some form of elected legislatures exist--as in Kuwait--but wield very little power which is subject to the ruling families will. Often elections are held only as safety-valves to vent frustration. Some of the richest Arab states including Saudi Arabia the United Arab Emirates Oman and Qatar are at the bottom of the democracy index. Saudi Arabia is at the bottom of the abyss. The democracy deficit is often blamed on Islam especially salafi desert Islam reinforced by ultra-conservative obscurantism. But other factors are more important. Large-scale social destruction and creation of artificial states by European imperialists tribalism and paternalism oil money which obviates the need to negotiate popular participation the state s failure to tax the rich and break their stranglehold and not the least foreign aid dependence. The Western powers led by the US have sustained Arab autocracies for Cold War-related reasons and now as part of the US s strategic alliance system to which Israel followed by Saudi Arabia and Egypt is pivotal. Washington has bankrolled Egypt with 3.5 billion ( 15 750 crore) annually since Anwar El-Sadat made peace with Israel in 1979 breaking its isolation in the Arab world. Many Arab rulers will probably follow the Egypt model when faced with a popular upsurge. The Egyptian people s anger was rooted in opposition to the Mubarak dynasty police brutality widespread poverty lack of housing high food prices and unemployment. People under 30 make up almost two-thirds of Egypt s population. About 90 per cent of Egypt s jobless are under 30. The collapse of the Mubarak regime will almost certainly ignite protests in other Arab states and prove a transformative moment in West Asia-North Africa radically reshaping it and opening a new democratic epoch. The situation is pregnant with big possibilities. The other major problems of this region are the fundamentalist Islamic militancy sectarian violence and terrorism and Iran s nuclear ambitions and all these pose threats to peace in West Asia. The US is involved in a significant way in clearing up or resolving all of them.

The government s efforts to diversify the economy by attracting foreign and domestic investment outside the energy sector have done little to reduce high poverty and youth unemployment rates. In 2010 Algeria began a five-year 2.86 billion ( 12 674 crore) development programme to update the country s infrastructure and provide jobs. The costly programme will boost Algeria s economy in 2011 but worsen the country s budget deficit. Long-term economic challenges include diversification from hydrocarbons relaxing state control of the economy and providing adequate jobs for younger Algerians.

Gradual liberalisation since the mid-1990s has opened up more of the economy but in recent years Algeria has imposed new restrictions on foreign involvement in its economy and largely halted the privatisation of state-owned industries. Hydrocarbons have long been the backbone of the economy accounting for roughly 60 per cent of budget revenues 30 per cent of GDP and over 95 per cent of export earnings. Algeria has the eighthlargest reserves of natural gas in the world and is the fourth-largest gas exporter. It ranks 16th in oil reserves. Thanks to strong hydrocarbon revenues Algeria has a cushion of 150 billion ( 6 75 000 crore) in foreign currency reserves and a large hydrocarbon stabilisation fund. In addition Algeria s external debt is extremely low at about one per cent of gross domestic product (GDP). Algeria has struggled to develop indus- Security Environnent Abdelaziz Bouteflika with the backing of the military won the Presidency in 1999 in an election widely viewed as fraudulent. He was re-elected for a second term in 2004 and overwhelmingly won a third term in 2009 after the government amended the constitution in 2008 to remove presidential term limits. Long-standing problems continue to face Bouteflika including large-scale unemployment a shortage of housing unreliable electrical and water supplies government inefficiencies and corruption and the continuing activities of extremist militants. The security situation in Algeria during the period 2009-10 was marked by a decrease in the number of high-profile terrorist attacks throughout the country although low-level terrorist activities continued in non-urban areas. The Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC) which formally merged with Al-Qa ida (AQ) in 2006 and now calls itself Al-Qa ida in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) previously focused on targeting Algerian Government interests and had been more averse to suicide attacks and civilian casualties. Some senior members of AQIM are former GIA insurgents. Although Algerian Government interests remained the primary focus of AQIM the group was forced to resort to kidnappings for ransom and expanded operations against westerners in the Sahel region. Algerian Government s counterterrorism operations which included an increased security presence and the dismantling of support and recruitment networks restrained AQIM s capacity to conduct high-profile attacks particularly in major Algerian cities. There were no suicide bombings after March 2009. The month of Ramadan typically a period of frequent attacks was quiet. Nevertheless AQIM carried out lethal operations using ambushes and roadside bombs against government and civilian targets particularly in the Kabylie region east of Algiers and increased its terrorist activities along the Algerian-Malian border. The counterterrorism successes of the Algerian services combined with the public rejection of terrorism appears to have reduced AQIM s overall effectiveness during the past two years. In August 2009 the Algerian Government hosted a meeting of the military Chiefs of Staff from Mali Libya Mauritania and Niger to develop a regional counterterrorism strategy and establish a regional command centre in the southern city of Tamanrasset. Algeria led efforts in international foray to condemn payment of ransom to terrorists. During 2008 the Government of Algeria instituted a programme to hire 1 00 000 new police and gendarme officers reinforce the borders augment security at airports and increase the overall security presence in major cities.

There is a palpable desire on the part of the countries of this region to enhance cooperation with us which we must reciprocate. --Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh at the Annual Combined Commanders Conference in New Delhi on September 13 2010 countries that remain wary of China s continued ascent on the scale of global power are also adding further dynamics to the militarisation in the Asia-Pacific. It is not surprising that Asia-Pacific which is the most fiercely contested region today has witnessed in the recent past a hike in defence capabilities of several regional countries. The militarisation in Asia-Pacific is further evidenced by an increasing trend towards building of new strategic alliances and joint military manoeuvres often with political undertones. The present chapter runs through the region s shifting geostrategic strands highlighting in the process major security challenges especially China s coercive diplomacy and its implications for regional security. he Asia-Pacific region including the Indian Ocean has remained the hub of heightened geostrategic activities in recent years not just because it is home to the world s few most populous and dynamic economies or for its abundance of natural reserves of oil gases and minerals but also because of the fact that the region lies at the crossroads of conflicted geoeconomic and geopolitical interests of several surrounding countries. The geostrategic significance of the Asia-Pacific region however has assumed even greater significance even more recently because of China s coercive diplomacy--the buzzword in global strategic circles. The increasing attempts made by China--the second most powerful country after the US--to redraw the maritime map of this region through coercive tactics are leading the Asia-Pacific region to an era of uncertain future underscored by higher degree of militarisation and geopolitical competitions. However counter strategies by Asia-Pacific s Security Challenges Potentially a politically instable region with fractured security environment Asia-Pacific s security challenges are wide and varied. These security challenges emanate from multiple sources which include among others conflicted land borders military intrusion into space and outer space strategic dominance of maritime space by state and non-state actors conflicts over increasingly sparse natural resources proliferation of weapons of mass destruction hegemonic intentions of rising powers involvement of non-state actors in conflicts between states mass terrorism environmental deprivation hunger poverty and epidemics etc. While many of these characteristics are common to a number of countries in the region many individual countries in the Asia-Pacific also have to contend with local insurgencies and secessionist movements.

Equipment having greater commonality within the region and those of comparatively recent origin have been chosen and presented under separate headings for the Army Navy and Air Force. We have listed each type of hardware under the headings of its country of origin like Russia UK and the US. The development of weapon systems is a long-term process. Over the years a composite unit like a tank ship or an aircraft passes through various phases of development and appears in different versions with varied fitments and operational parameters. We have listed these variants but greater details of each version with specific parameters are given in the dedicated publications. We have also relied on such publications in compiling our data. In this volume specifications have been listed in general terms and common features spelt out. Details of sensors and weapon control systems have been omitted as they may vary from craft to craft even within the same class.
