To tackle the menace of birds flying around its bases and putting the fighter aircraft in danger, IAF is now looking for procuring sophisticated radars to monitor bird activity as an integral part of its flight safety procedure.
Former Army chief VP Malik, who
led the Army during the 1999 Kargil war, has said casualties
in the conflict could have been reduced had DRDO "not come in
the way" in the acquisition of weapon-locating radars.
