India's New Military Base

A portent of the future?

India is establishing its first ever military base outside its territory:
For the first time in its history, India is establishing a military base outside its borders. This will be at a former Soviet air base (Farkhor) about a hundred kilometers north of the capital of Tajikistan. About a dozen Indian MiG-29 fighters will be based at Farkhor, along with fewer than a hundred Indian military personnel.
I'm sure there will be more bases like this as India begins asserting itself as a world power.
