Gandhi had said Modi government’s "bullying" an institution like JNU was "completely condemnable",full spectrum deterrence? To deal with this rough neighbourhoodIndia has embarked on an ambitious military modernisation programme Indians have triumphantly witnessed progress on a nuclear ballistic missile submarinethe Arihantwhose reactor recently went critical; watched the aircraft carrier Vikrant set off from dry dock; cheered news of the successful Agni-V test; and learned of political clearance to raise a Mountain Strike Corps in the east to be headquartered at Panagarh Each of Indias three armed services is moving to modernise itself But can India afford it all The defence budget for 2013-14 grew by 5 per cent over the previous yearwith defence capital acquisitions growing by 9 per cent Butwith inflation averaging more than 5 per cent since Februaryand the rupee depreciating by 14 per cent against the dollar over the same periodthat modest nominal budget increase is actually a real budget decrease for defence In a time of austeritystrategic planning is about prioritisation How should India prioritise its future military modernisation to meet its envisioned security requirements Each of the three services can claim urgent need Firstthere is the Indian Air Force Saddled with an ageingshrinking set of fighter aircraft and a stalling deal to buy Frances Rafalethe IAF desperately needs an infusion of modern fighter aircraft While the Sukhoi-30 MKI is an incredibly capable aircraftand India plans to ultimately acquire 272 of themone fighter alone cannot meet the full range of Indias needs and mandated squadron strength Despite high hopesthe Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircraft (MMRCA) deal with Dassault for its Rafale jets appears to be sputtering Between French cutbacks in production and the falling rupeeit is an open question whether Dassault can live up to the terms of its lowest price bid The IAFs joint development with Russia of a fifth-generation fighterthe Sukhoi PAK FAis still in the early phases of development That leaves India still relying on obsolete MiG-21s in service for 50 yearswith an increasingly abysmal safety record as the backbone of its fighter strength The IAF is similarly strained on transport and close air support capabilities While the air force struggles to replace obsolete platformsthe navy has launched an ambitious expansion plan of its surface and submarine fleet demanding significant capital expenditures The half-decade process of developing and arming the Arihant and Vikrant is only beginning But to have a fully operational nuclear deterrent at seaIndia will need at least three nuclear submarines at an estimated $3 billion eachnot including the cost of developing the submarine-launched ballistic missiles Similarlythe Vikrant will need time in port for maintenance and refitting To keep up its forward naval air presenceIndia will need to complete the Vikrants bigger sister shipthe Vishaland finalise the painfully expensivelong-delayed acquisition of the aircraft carrier Vikramaditya from Russia The army has its own ambitions for replacing and expanding capabilities The recent clearance to raise a Mountain Strike Corps will cost an estimated Rs 65000 crore Meanwhilethe army is in the process of fully upgrading Indias main battle tank to the Russian T-90even as it upgrades the armys attack-helicopter fleet and basic infantryartilleryand armoured equipment The army still has to decide where to hide its indigenous Arjun tankwhich it has never been excited about but had thrust upon it by the DRDO If the goal is indeed to be capable of waging offensives simultaneously on Indias western and eastern frontsthe army still has a long way to go None of this will be cheap So can India afford to simultaneously modernise all three services at its current pace This debate between competing services and strategic visions will be a painful onebut it must be had All countries have difficulty picking winners and losers among services Its always tempting to spread the wealth around But doing so can carry very real costs Instead of a clear-headed strategic rationale for investmentdriven by a vision of its future strategic postureIndia might find itself under-equipped in all three services and dangerously vulnerable Indias civilian defence managers are particularly ill-equipped to make strategic choiceswith many senior officials appointed to the defence ministry with no prior national security experience Choosing among weapons systems and services requires making bets about Indias future security landscape and determining what sort of wars India may have to wage in future For exampleis Indias future security best obtained with a strong land and air forceor does it make sense to invest heavily in naval capabilitieswhere India presently has an advantagebut which could pit it against a growing PLA Navy and lead to a potentially expensive naval arms race Can India best deter China by developing a capability for land grabs along the border or by threatening Chinas maritime trade Can India best deter Pakistan with the capability to attrite the Pakistan army or with the capability to strike deep into Pakistans heartland No single service can answer these questionsand the military cannot do so without civilian guidance But Indias services are so stove-pipedand its civil and military leaders so sharply dividedthat South Block cannot ask such questionslet alone answer them Until real defence reform occurs in Indiamilitary modernisation in a time of austerity will just mean less of the same Christopher Clary and Vipin Narang Clary is a Stanton Nuclear Security
