Pak's plan was brilliant, but didn't factor in airpower: IAF Chief on Battle of Longewala

During the release of 'The Epic Battle of Longewala' book, Indian Air Force chief Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria said that Pakistan Army's plan of armoured thrust was brilliant, however it didn't factor in airpower.

"Pak Army's plan of armoured thrust was brilliant.

But they didn't factor in airpower and thought what would half a squadron sitting in Jaisalmer would do, it was their mistake.

Airpower can bring asymmetric results if time and place are chosen correctly," said IAF chief in the event at the Air Force Museum today.

'The Epic Battle of Longewala' has been authored by Air Marshal Bharat Kumar (Retd.).
