    Nukes should be a deterrent and not a weapon which is over invested in. Start investing in naval and airforce nuke carriers and the Pakistanis and Chinese will start their own productions to beat ours. Best to let it lie with our current weapons and not start another nuke arms race in South Asia. We South Asians spend enough money as it is on unnecessary nuke weaponary support etc which in all probabilities will never ever be used and just be relegated to the dustbin in a few decades time. Rather spend that money buying rice for our peoples

    Recipe for disaster and subjugation. Ever heard Zaid Hamid and co talk ? A Chinese take over of India will lead to a repeat of the rape of Nanjing on Indian soil. A Pakistani one will lead to a repeat of the Holocaust ten times over. Pacifism has been a hallmark of the Indic civilization but it needs to be tempered with the realization that those whom it faces will not reciprocate similar emotions and will not display an iota of mercy. Have you forgotten Mumbai? It is a reminder of the limits of pacifism.

    Dear all, let's look at this article in a rational manner. Let's first ask, who does India lack a credible deterrent against? Pakistan, I think not, China maybe.

    Pakistan is a small country with a limited number of targets, and is constrained with a lack of strategic depth. As such India needs a very small arsenal if that need ever arises (hopefully never). Pakistan is at a disadvantage, given India's larger size, greater depth and larger number of targets. As such, Pakistan needs a larger arsenal and longer range missiles compared to India. Moreover, Pakistan would probably use artillery based battlefield low yield tactical nukes within its own territory, in order not to provoke an Indian retalitory strike. But then again, I hope that situation never arises.

    If India wants to have an autonomous and credible second strike capability against a country other than Pakistan, then I agree it needs longer range missiles, possibly ICBMs, road mobile missiles, and submarine launched capability also. Take care.

    India's ability to quickly build a nuclear assault force of aerial

    [​IMG]

    India's nuclear strike force to strengthen the action is increasingly evident. According to the "Hindustan Times" reported on September 12, Indian Strategic Forces Command (SFC) plans to build a team of 40 aircraft to form an air nuclear strike force.
    continue to strengthen its nuclear strike force
    reported that the Indian armed forces plan to combat forces are equipped with 40 fighter nuclear attack can be implemented to enhance the ability of aerial nuclear attack. Indian Army Strategic Forces Command has submitted proposals to the Ministry of Defence report, requested to draw the property of their command of two fighter squadrons, as a dedicated "mini-Air Force." Indian Army Strategic Forces Command was established in January 4, 2003, attributable to direct Bureau of Indian nuclear forces (NCA) command, responsible for the management of nuclear strategic forces and strategic nuclear weapons, the current leader by a three-star officer, this is the sector explicit requirements for the first time, set up directly under the air force. Sources say, the Indian Army Strategic Forces Command will be equipped with experienced battle-tested fighter, and these fighters must have a nuclear missile delivery capability, "Mirage -2000," Su-30MKI and the "Jaguar" fighters are likely to be candidate models.
    reported that this can carry nuclear weapons, "mini-Air Force" after forming, has been in service with the "Earth" and "Fire" series of land-based ballistic missiles, an Indian nuclear deterrent as an important component section. In addition, the Indian Army Strategic Forces Command is developing "annihilating those" class of submarine-launched ballistic missile nuclear submarines and supporting. By then India will initially have a "trinity" of nuclear strike forces, the Indian forces have limited nuclear deterrent "second-strike capability."
