Several other fighter helicopters are also deployed.
There is also a gas turbine and a state-of-the-art radar system. At the same time, the Rafale fighter jet imported from France is included in the dangerous jets of the world. The indigenous Tejas fighter jet has also become a part of the army to challenge the world. From America, Australia to the Philippines and Egypt, this jet has become crazy.
Armed with missiles, guided rocket launchers and modern submarines
The country's army has been equipped with state-of-the-art and dangerous guided missiles, anti-tank missiles, tanks, guided rocket launchers, hand grenades and modern submarines during this period. The special thing is that India has made it herself. Now other countries are also wishing to buy these weapons from India. The army equipped with these defense equipment now has the ability to compete with any country.
The focus has also been on roads, rail transport and air service to take the Indian Army from inaccessible to inaccessible areas. The Modi government has laid a network of infrastructure on India's border with China for 4000 thousand kilometers. So that in difficult conditions, soldiers can reach anywhere and eliminate the enemies.
The world saw the power of the army in the surgical strike in Pakistan and in Galwan
The world has seen the strength of the army in the surgical strike of the Indian Army by entering Pakistan on terrorists and in the skirmish with China in Galvan Valley. In Galwan, the Chinese army was forced to retreat by Indian soldiers. That India was not going to be suppressed by any country.
The morale of the soldiers increased with the National War Memorial
The National War Memorial built at India Gate under the Modi government is encouraging the soldiers of the country. This war memorial is a true tribute to the thousands of soldiers who have been martyred for the country till now.
Easy decision making from Chief Defense of Army Staff
PM Modi strengthened the strength of the army even more by creating the post of Chief Defense of Army Staff (CDS). The CDS is the head of the three services. That is, the army itself has now become capable of responding to the antics of an enemy country. For this he does not need permission from the government. Only the CDS can order a counter-attack on any country. Apart from this, the government has completely opened the avenues for women in the army.
