New elite sophisticated Indian Army command with Satellite feed; nuclear loaded stealth supersonic Indo-Russian Brahmos missiles will take control of Indo Pak border


Indian army chief J.J. Singh said on Feb. 4, 2005, a new army command will be mobilized in the next three months to defend India's western borders with Pakistan. In addition to using satellite equipment, Singh said the 10 battalions will be equipped for with conventional and nuclear missiles, including the Indo-Russian surface-to-surface Brahmos cruise missile.



The new command and control structure will be based on the stealth supersonic Brahmos missile with integrated control through satellite feeds.
The supersonic missile -- which derives its name from the Brahmaputra and Moscow rivers in both countries - has a range of almost 300 km and is designed for use with land, sea and aerial platforms.

Its unmatchable speed is its high point, making it invincible. The supersonic speed imparts it a greater strike-power as well. Possessing stealth characteristics, the 6.9-meter cruise missile weighing three tons has a range of 280 km. Its another outstanding feature is that it is highly accurate and can be guided to its target mainly with the help of an onboard computer. This has been established by the test-flight. The computer and the guidance system have been designed by India whereas Russia has provided the propulsion system.

The satellite feed, Brahmos and other cruise missile cluster will provide a virtual cloud cover through no Pakistani missile, planes or any other devices will be able to move into Indian territory.

The new command will be completely computer controlled and Indiaís superior algorithmic capabilities will make Pakistanís all offensive initiative useless.

India assumes Pakistan will obtain F16s from America and will use the same in next several years against India. The new command will make these F16s obsolete for attempting any Pakistani adventure against Indiaís line of Control.

No one is going to use nukes, its just a nuclear arms race IMO.
And are you saying suppose in case of a war with Pakistan, if they are on the losing side they will use nukes as a last resort ?
Thats highly unlikely (90 % chances that they would accept defeat) as accepting defeat is far more favorable to them than getting fried in a counterstrike.
Its the remaining 10 % that any country wouldn't be sure about and thats the exact reason a country tries to acquire nukes.

India wouldn't want this war. It would set them back on their race to become a super power.

But its also true that Pakistan is a major hindrance to India to achieve super power status sometime in the future.

Eh? If you become a super power, how could a country like Pakistan really threaten your existence?

Wouldn't ever achieve superpower status if Pakistan continues its hostile policies towards India.There's a lot of defence spending going on towards keeping Pakitsan under control , the same money which could be used for other purposes.More than 75 % of India's armed forces are positioned in J & K to combat terrorists which is eating away a large chunk of India's defence budget.
What I always wonder is if Pakistan didn't acquire nukes could India try to settle this issue forever by going on a full scale war with Pakistan , it was close to happen in 1999 , when pakistani sponsored rebels attacked the Indian Parliament.But for some unknown reasons it never happened.
Its is true that a war with pakistan would mean India lagging in the race to be a major world player, but theres another side to it.It will always be a core issue and will forever be a problem to India's ambition of achieving super power status.

yes it could be against such a proxy enemy, but its out of question now, probably.
