Indian Military to adopt new tactics of war 2019


Indian Military, The silent war brewing in India. While defending the agnipat scheme, India’s top military planner and executioner, national security advisor Ajit Dobal gave out his thoughts on warfare and deterrence.

full-scale wars with either Starting with the action, dole has ruled out full-scale wars with either Pakistan or China. Ajit Dobell said it has ceased to become an effective instrument for achieving political and military objectives. So having ruled out full-scale wars, he is now talking about contactless war and going after the invisible enemy while he needs to spell out what exactly he means by contactless war.

The cyber attacks primarily emanated from China, and he is referring to the space capabilities because he says that in the Modi government in the last eight years, what had never happened before India has become vital because it now has a defense space agency and it has a defense agency which in his wisdom are good enough to take on the threat from the PLA, which happens to be India’s primary threat.

full-scale wars with Pakistan and China. Regarding the invisible enemy, Prime Minister Modi himself, in his first interaction in October 2014 with the combined commander, made it very clear that the primary threat to India is terrorism. He was referring to the terrorism emanating from Pakistan. 

Sadly terrorism is not a threat. Terrorism manifests the threat; the danger is the line of control being defended by the Pakistan military. The other threat we have after April 2020 is on the line of actual control. The PLA has created a permanent habitat training center and will be a launch pad for war in the autonomous region. Post Doklam, this whole training thing started in 2018. However, according to Ajit doable, the threat remains unchanged. It is terrorism. India is primarily focusing on what the PLA is doing because the PLA should be a primary threat and not Pakistan. 

The PLA is preparing for two kinetic wars in the Tibet autonomous region and the Xinjiang military division. One is called the information war, which is about information dominance by the own side and denial of information to the enemy to disrupt his forces cognitively, not by attrition but by cognition.

The second war for which they are preparing is the intelligent-sized war which could be defined as combat operations using intelligence weapons and intelligent platforms with artificial intelligence as the core and with technical support from the smart networks which include cloud, data, and the internet of military things. This is what PLA has been preparing for since 2018 against India. 

peacetime threat

Likewise, there is another threat which is the peacetime threat which still exists. This is called the information war. This includes PLA cyber attacks they keep doing as well as all the activities that are being under their political work department. This overlooks what is called their three warfare strategy, which includes public opinion warfare, legal warfare, and psychological operations.

There has been another problem, if seen high from April 2020 until now including, a where both sides suffered casualties in which Indians suffered much more than the Chinese. The problem for India is that the PLA is permanent now and needs to move somewhere. Hence, India has to ensure that another

April 2020 does not happen because if it does happen once again, it will be impossible to throw them out like India have not been able to throw them out from the 1000 square kilometer that the PLA has today sitting on for the last two and half years.

On the other side, what India has from Pakistan is a threat to the war zone, which includes the whole of the nation, and a threat to the combat zone which means that all operations of the PLA will be done at the strategic level and operational level of war they will not get down to the tactical level of war at all which is the strength of the Indian army and the Indian air force.  

Next Indian military has to face a threat from the Pakistan military so there is a threat of war from the line of control, in addition, there is another threat which is the collision threat that India has to face from north Kashmir. 

Ajit dobal Doctrine

Now let`s take out the concept of Ajit dobal of deterrence. According to Ajit dobal, there are four heads under which work has gone on to make the Indian military strong and these four heads include technology, equipment, the change in systems and structures, and manpower.

Xinjiang military division

Regarding the Xinjiang military division, India knows very well that this will be the core pivot area where the Pakistan military and the PLA will perhaps go beyond the combined operations to interchangeable operations. Indian Military, their topmost planners had focused on the PLA instead of focusing on the US military and going to Canada and the UK, they would have learned much more about warfare. Thus, India has had to face more threats and problems from both Pakistan and China.
