Apart from facing the brunt of the outbreak of the COVID-19 Novel Corona Virus, India has also been facing a number of natural calamities as well as headaches from our neighbouring countries Pakistan, China & Nepal, along the borders! The recent skirmishes between the troops of both India & China at the Galwan Valley in the Ladakh region, along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) of the Indo-China border, raised the tensions between the countries! There was heavy friction after some clashes lead to loss of lives for both sides! After a number of rounds of talks at various levels, both India and China agreed for de-escalation along the LAC and pulled back their troops and armaments from the regions causing friction.

However, India is still taking adequate precautions to pre-meditate and stop any further incursions from the Chinese and is beefing up security along the border. It was recently reported that the first batch of 5 Rafale fighter jets that are being delivered to India by Dassault Aviation, were going to be deployed at forward air bases along the Ladakh region. Now, we hear that the Defense Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) of India, has gifted the indigenously developed Bharat Drones to the Indian Army! These series of drones, developed at the Chandigarh-based DRDO centre, are considered to be one of the world's lightest & most agile drones deployed specifically for surveillance! The biggest positive is that, these drones are only being made in India!

Some of the special features of these Bharat Drones are that they are very small, yet powerful and can work autonomously at any location with great accuracy! A deadly combination of unibody biomimetic design and advanced release technology, makes these drones a highly skillful device for surveillance missions! These drones are equipped with artificial intelligence to differentiate between friends and foes and have also been modelled to work in harsh weather conditions. These drones can provide real-time video transmission and have highly advanced & sophisticated night-vision capabilities and more importantly, cannot be detected by Radar! Some reports also state that India has been heavily arming all its forward bases along the Leh-Ladakh Eastern Border region with China and has also deployed the T-90 Bhishma Tank, which is considered to be the main battle tank of the Indian Army, at Ladakh! Stay tuned for updates...
