In recent years, India has gained unprecedented access to high-quality, sensitive military equipment from the West. But rather than focus on qualitative advances to its arsenal utilizing these technologies, Delhi continues to focus on quantitative improvements to its conventional forces, which is perceived as threatening to India’s neighbors. Abhijit Iyer-Mitra explored the technological and doctrinal fault lines between India’s hardware purchases and its lack of operational gains. Carnegie’s Toby Dalton moderated the discussion.
