There are three divisions in the Indian Armed Forces: The Indian Army became operational after the country gained independence from the British rule to uphold the ideals of the Constitution of India, thwart internal threats and proxy wars and to assist and protect the government and the people of India. The Indian Navy was founded in the seventeenth century when the East India Company has established a maritime force to maintain high readiness at all times to protect India's maritime interests, to defeat all naval threats, and to safeguard seaward frontiers. The Indian Airforce was officially established in 1932. Its primary aim is to overwhelm the adversaries with the application of aerospace power in defense of the nation. Over time, the Indian Airforce undertook massive upgrading of its equipment and aircraft and introduced more than 20 types of aircraft.
