Pune, November 7
Air Chief Marshal Rakesh Kumar Singh Bhadauria on Saturday said the modern-day battle-space was “highly complex and multi-dimensional” with unpredictable security scenarios and that the armed forces have to be prepared for hybrid threats emanating from multiple fronts.
Bhadauria was addressing cadets of the National Defence Academy (NDA) here after reviewing the passing-out parade of its 139th course. “Today’s battle-space is highly complex and multi-dimensional with unpredictable security scenarios and high operational tempo. In the battle-space, operational response and demand will be an integrated synergistic approach to all operations,” he added.
“The appointment of the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) and formation of the Department of Military Affairs (DMA) marks the beginning of the most historic phase of defence reforms in India,” he said.
“Our armed forces have to be prepared for hybrid threats emanating from multiple fronts. This mandates very high levels of knowledge, dedication, commitment and sacrifice and leadership at all levels at all times,” he added. — PTI
