Bombers can also be armed with long range cruise missiles. But thats viable when your enemy is away from you such as US, Russia and China. In case of Pakistan, India and China all three share borders with each other and can be targeted easily with launchers based on land and investing in bombers will be considered waste of money.Err no. Bombers can only be used when air force has air superiority over a region or has to travel long to make a bombing. There is no requirement for a bomber from IAF. So how's this news?
This news is most likely fake. India has to fill up her falling squadron numbers first.
