Fortifying defence has become most significant under current circumstances as the enemies are posing grave and constant threat to sovereignty and integrity of the country by collaborating to realise their deceitful and unethical goals which are for sure detrimental to the interests of India and its people. Sensing the gravity of the issue, the government has taken timely and adequate measure by approving purchase of fighter jets, missile systems and other weapons worth Rs 38,900 crore. Through this most vital initiative of the defence ministry, procurement of 33 frontline fighter jets, a number of missile systems and other military hardware will help bolster the combat capability of the armed forces, which is right now the first and foremost necessity of the country as borders with China and Pakistan are facing stress and strain on account of aggression by the enemy nations to satiate their expansionist agendas besides other ulterior motives. It has been averred by the concerned ministry that 21 MiG-29 fighter jets will be procured from Russia while 12 Su-30 MKI aircrafts will be bought from State-run aerospace behemoth Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) while a separate proposal to upgrade existing 59 MiG-29 aircrafts has also been approved. Apart from this, the ministry has also approved procurement of 248 ASTRA Beyond Visual Range (BVR) air-to-air missile systems designed to engage and destroy highly maneuvering supersonic aircraft and has all weather day and night capability. Surely, after getting all these defence equipments and aircrafts, India will become stronger making it difficult for its adversaries to even stand in front or pose a military challenge.
