One of the systems could be deployed along the country’s Western borders.
Another one is being deployed in Ladakh to deal with threats from both China and Pakistan.

In war or war like situation, assets loss to fratricide isn't unusual. But don't hope they would only thing that end up taken down.
Well, the IAF chopper was indeed the ONLY thing that was taken down by your air defence on 27th Feb. Now whether your air defence personnel were incompetent, idiots, unskilled (or all) or the Spyder system was spoofed by the PAF, you can surely hope that wouldn't happen next time.

No excuses for the loss in February 2019. It exposed how operationally unprepared and incompetent the IAF was at that time. It was not like a 100 missiles were fired and 1 of them hit an allied friendly.

Making excuses for IAF this way will only lead the organization to be caught flat footed again. :mad:

Not condoning the incident and I believe IAF must everything not to see repeat of that incident. But fratricidal do happen in tense situation.
A Pakistan F16 had shot down another Pakistani f16 by mistake while engaging Soviets Russia jets during 1980s.
