India doesn’t have MOAB but has SPICE for terror camps in PoK

India does not have either an MOAB or FOAB that can be used against terror groups that pose security threat to the country.India has the Smart Precise Impact and Cost Effective – simply called SPICE – bomb. SPICE is the biggest conventional bomb that Indian Air Force has under its command for use.The SPICE is manufactured by Israeli firm Rafael Advanced Defence Systems Ltd. It is a precision guided bomb that can be carried on Mirage 2000 fighter planes of the Indian Air Force.The surgical strike that India carried in September last year is an indication that it too can hit at the terror camps the way the United States does.

So, if and when India decides to carry out an attack on terror camps, the Air Force can carry SPICE. It weighs around 2,000-lb or roughly 1,000-kg.Apart from Mirage 2000, one variant of Sukhoi-30 MKI can also carry SPICE and deliver at the enemy’s camp.Besides SPICE, Indian Air Force also has 1,000-lb HSLD or High Speed, Low Drag bombs.The HSLD can be fitted in several fighter planes including Jaguar and Sukhoi-30 MKI versions.
