India, despite being ruled by outside powers for centuries has established itself as a powerful nation. This is due to its large population which is soon going to exceed China's.
Capital: New Delhi
Population: 1.353 billion
Defence Budget: 57 billion
Total Personnel: 2,545,000
With a moderately large arsenal of land systems, the Indian Army pales in comparison to China. Most of its equipment is of questionable ability in the 2020's. Perhaps the most important asset is the large amount of T-90s. The ICBMs and other missiles which have been the biggest achievement of the Indian defence industry outline the threats which India faces and its will to stay standing.
The Indian Air Force is the 4th largest in the world, with the 4th most fighters and bombers. Although modernisation is on the way, as it stands now the Indian Air Force doesn't have qualitative edge over its rivals. For instance it still uses MiG-21's. The use of MiG-21's proved fatal in a recent border clash. India needs to have a large number of modern aircraft if it wants to hold both Pakistan and China back.
Armed UAVs: 0
Attack Helicopters: 23
The Indian navy is in the process of acquiring multiple new vessels including a new aircraft carrier. If the nation is to remain in control of the Indian Ocean it must both qualitatively and quantitatively boost its fleet.
Total Vessels: 285
Carriers and LHDs: 1
Is lacking in many areas in comparison with Russia, USA and China
Needs to get rid of old equipment such as MiG-21s
Training is not the best
Its defence industry is way too small for its population
