AWACS are considered integral to modern warfare, due to their ability to detect and track incoming fighters, cruise missiles, and drones much before ground-based radars, direct friendly fighters during air combat with enemy jets.

They also keep tabs on enemy troop build-ups and movement of warships. The new BrahMos missiles will be increasingly vital for any air force if they can shoot- down enemy AWACS which are often called the ‘Eye in the Sky’

The joint venture defense firm of BrahMos Aerospace was recently cleared by both partner nations India as well as Russia to export the missile to friendly countries.
