A latecomer in this cold war, India has managed to shift dramatically from an agrarian country to one of the many superpowers in this world. Major differences from OTL include there being no secessions of Bangladesh, Myanmar or Pakistan and also gaining Nepal.
India has a military capability rivalling that of Russia and the United States. Their new Bull Tanks can rival the US Powell and the Russian Tsar Mikhail tanks. Their Tiger Helicopter can seriously challenge the Sioux and the Ka-50. While Indian soldiers receive state of the art equipment.
India's Tiger Fighter is a force to be reckoned with in the skies while the Elephant Transport is capable of capacities that outweigh the Russian Bear Transport and the C-130 Hercules, while the Turtle bomber has a payload that can rival the Russian and American equivalents.
India's navy is a force to be reckoned with.
India, while a latecomer to the space race, is planning a man on Mars. They also have plans for the Shiva Space Station, which is just as powerful as the Goddard and the Korolev.
The Indian Security Organisation is the counterpart to the IID and OSS.
