India and China is going through a standoff and the signs does not look so nice if we see from Chinese perspective. India is tackling China with a lot of patience and not reacting to provocation from Chinese forces on the land.
Indian government has decided to enhance the firepower of Sukhoi 30MKI. The enhancement will be done under a 3000 Crore proposal which was approved recently.
Sukhoi 30-MKI will be equipped with new reconnaissance pods which will help detect terrorists on mountains or inside bunkers. They can be on a rough terrain but they will be detected.
The pods will help in finding any high value enemy hidden on any terrain. It will be easier to analyze and identify any one hiding on impossible terrains. Earlier, it was not possible to identify and hit the bunkers from the air. If these reconnaissance pods would be available in any previous wars, i.e 1971 or Kargil war, it would be so easy for the air force to hit the Pakistan army bunkers. Even if is a bunker made in a natural cave, it can be targeted.
Sukhoi 30 MKI is a twinjet multi role superiority fighter and is heavy and long range fighter. Sukhoi gives freedom to Indian Air Force to fight any offensive. With Sukhoi 30 MKI, Indian Air Force won 90% of mock combat missions against US F-15C.
With more firepower, there is a lot to worry for the enemy nations who already felt the risk of countering Sukhoi 30-MKI. It will be good to see how Sukhoi performs in any future dual exercises.
