* Fights a war of aggression against Burma and Thailand in the ''EndersGame'' sequel ''Shadow of the Hegemon.'' Sabotaged by the [[MagnificentBastard evil teenage mastermind]] Achilles who is manipulating the Indian government so that the Chinese can wipe the floor with them after they have been exhausted by a long campaign against fierce Thai attacks on their supply lines. Petra Arkanian, the [[ArmosWithArmor Armenian]] tactical genius captured by Achilles had predicted exactly this result and issued a plan that anticipated the Thai strategy (masterminded by her former classmate Bean), but Achilles put the kibosh on that. The result is that India is occupied by China until a Muslim army under a new Caliphate (headed by [[EveryoneWentToSchoolTogether their classmate Alai]]) liberates India.

As (then) part of the British Empire, the Indian army fought alongside British, Canadians, and [=ANZACs=] in both world wars. The Indian military has continued to be very similar to Britain in organization and doctrine--particularly in its continuation of the [[KiplingsFinest British Indian Army]]'s regimental system and battle honours, including retention of honours earned during the colonial period[[note]]Excepting those honours that are considered "repugnant" for being oppressive to India or its neighbors[[/note]]--down to using that most deadly of close quarter weapons, [[EverythingsLouderWithBagpipes the bagpipe]]. The Indian military is a very effective Western style force that uses an extensive amount of Russian gear, not the rather more common Soviet style client state.

However, India, a non-aligned country during the ColdWar (with a mutual defense treaty with the USSR), also has plenty of equipment from the UK and France (including Mirage 2000s, Sea Harriers, and licence-built SEPECAT Jaguar attack aircraft) and has recently placed orders for C-130J Super Hercules transports and P-8I Poseidon maritime patrol planes from the United States (which signed a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S.%E2%80%93India_Civil_Nuclear_Agreement civil nuclear agreement with India in 2005]] and has generally been ingratiating itself with New Delhi since 2000). The most recent procurement deal of this kind occurred in 2011, when the Indian Air Force agreed to purchase the French Dassault Rafale (with 16 fighters to be bought from French factories and the remaining 108 to be manufactured in India). India has also begun the process of augmenting its Russian helicopters with the American Chinook Ch-47.

** In ''Debt of Honor'', some [=B1B=] Lancers break their best carrier, ''Vikrant'', by flying very close to it and going supersonic. There are no diplomatic consequences for this.

** In ''Debt of Honor'', some [=B1B=] Lancers break their best carrier, ''Vikrant'', by flying very close to it and going supersonic. There are no diplomatic consequences for this. At the time, however, India was attempting to invade Sri Lanka, and the United States had chosen to guarantee Sri Lanka's sovreignty, so whatever consequences may have resulted from the ''Vikrant'' flyby [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking were small potatoes compared to the larger geopolitical conflict going on]].
