Meanwhile, during the air encounter, one of the air force pilot fell into the PAK’s territory due aircraft crash and captured by their army. However, abiding to a Geneva Conventions, Pakistan has released the Air commandant safely but in the meantime, India is putting the international pressure on PAK to stop supporting such terrorists in their home ground and take action against them as if any further attacks happen again India will act in the same way.

ARMY & LAND FORCES – Indian Army is Two Times Bigger than PAK Troops

Currently, India has more than 1.2 million army man ready for anytime combat with enemies. While, Pakistan’s army has only 560,000 troops much smaller than India. However, the total manpower available for military is around 320 million and PAK has only 48 million which is also much bigger than India thanks to larger population in the country.

Whereas, PAK has Chinese assistance built mobile short-and medium-range weapons that can reach any part of India. Pakistan has Shaheen-2 to target the range of up to 2,000 km with the capacity to carry One-ton nuclear or conventional loads.

Whatever weapons or nuclear warheads both neighboring countries are equipped but once the war is officially declared it is unknown how long it will go and how much weapon of mass destruction will be used during the entire war phase.

And the use of any kind of nuclear bombs is not favorable for the environment, as it can also destroy humanity and will also raise global warming on the earth with cascading effects up to many generations. So, we hope and pray nothing like situation arises and both nations should talk peacefully to come at the favorable decisions and save both country’s economy.
