  1. I watch alpha defence channel on regular basis since last one and a half years. My days complete with it, finally I can say that your contents are pretty good and needs some more like expert on satrategy and military experts interview.

  2. I am a very big fan of this ‘Alpha Defence’ channel as they give correct and verified information. I’m also very happy to see the second import ban list. Now no one can stop us from becoming Atmanibhar.
