Indian Air Force is planning to acquire a more capable version of the Spice-2000 bombs from Israel. The IAF forces have used these bombs earlier in the Balakot airstrikes.
According to information furnished by Indian Defence news, the SPICE stands for Smart, Precise Impact, and Cost-Effective. It is said India has already acquired these Isreal make bombs and now has plans to acquire more. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has granted emergency financial powers to the defence forces up to Rs 500 crore to make any weapon purchases of their choice which they feel fit to use in the warfare. The decision has come especially in the wake of recent Indo-China skirmishes in Galwan valley in which India lost 20 of its heroes.
