Squadron Leader Sube Singh Malik was engaged in operations against Pakistan as a Flight Commander of a Hunter Squadron. He flew a total of 15 operational missions of which 11 were in close support of the army in the front line.
He led formations of Hunter aircraft on offensive air strikes on eight occasions and caused extensive damage and destruction to enemy tanks, vehicles and troops. He pressed home his attacks with determination and courage in spite of heavy enemy ground fire and, on some occasions, enemy interceptor aircraft. On one occasion the control surfaces of his aircraft were damaged but with skill he brought back his aircraft and landed safely at his base. On another occasion he pressed home his attack against a heavily defended target in spite of a warning received from his companion about enemy F-104 aircraft closing in. Undaunted, he completed his task in spite of the heavy odds and brought his formation safely back to base.
During another sortie near Harbanspura Railway station, his formation caused extensive damage to enemy armour and gun positions in spite of heavy enemy antiaircraft fire.
The courage and tenacity of Squadron Leader Sube Singh Malik were in the highest traditions of the Air Force.

Wing Commander Sube Singh Malik took over command of a fighter squadron in November, 1970. Throughout his stay in the Squadron, he has consistently endeavoured to improve the operational readiness of the squadron. During the India-Pakistan conflict 1971, he was required to move to the Western Sector at extremely short notice and operate detachments of the Squadron from several separate locations. All these moves were undertaken at very short notice and the detachments were operational at each of these locations immediately on arrival. Most of the moves were carried out either with very limited air transport support or none. The threat from enemy aircraft in the area in which his squadron operated was reduced almost to nil because of the activity of his unit.
Throughout, Wing Commander Sube Singh Malik displayed courage, leadership and devotion to duty.
