Wow is this image of plaaf Air base captured by our own Spy satellite 🛰 ??
It's really great to see we have such technology....

What is the name of our satellite used for military purposes?? Is it Cartosat?

The Chinese fighter aircraft activities took place from its bases including the Hotan, Gar Gunsa and Kashgar airfields which have been upgraded recently.

With India and China engaged in a military standoff for more than a year now, the Chinese Air Force recently carried out a big aerial exercise from its airbases opposite Eastern Ladakh which was watched closely by the Indian side.

"Around 21-22 of Chinese fighter aircraft mainly including the J-11s which are the Chinese copy of the Su-27 fighters and a few J-16 fighters held an exercise opposite the Indian territory in Eastern Ladakh," defence sources told ANI.

The exercise, which was held recently, was watched closely by the Indian side, they said.
The Chinese fighter aircraft activities took place from its bases including the Hotan, Gar Gunsa and Kashgar airfields which have been upgraded recently to enable operations by all types of fighters along with concrete structures to hide away the presence of the number of fighters present at its different airbases, the sources said.

The sources said the Chinese aircraft remained well within their territory during the aerial drills.The Indian fighter aircraft activity in the Ladakh area has gone up significantly since last year.

"After the summer deployments of the Chinese troops and Air Force this year, the Indian Air Force has also been regularly deploying detachments of its fighters including the MiG-29s in Ladakh," sources said.

The Indian Air Force also regularly flies its most capable Rafale fighters over the Ladakh skies which have boosted the Indian capability all along the Line of Actual Control as 24 of these planes are already in the Indian inventory now.

Sources said that even though the Chinese have withdrawn troops from the Pangong lake area, they have not moved their air defence systems including the HQ-9 and HQ-16 which can target aircraft at long ranges.

India closely watched the activities of the Chinese Air Force including the airfields in Hotan, Gar Gunsa, Kashghar, Hopping, Dkonka Dzong, Linzhi and Pangat airbases in the Xinjiang and Tibet region.

In the initial phase of the tension with China in the April-May timeframe, the Indian forces had seen the deployment of Su-30s and MiG-29s in the forward air bases and they had played an important role in thwarting an airspace violation bid by the Chinese aircraft in the Eastern Ladakh sector.


The Indian Air Force has an edge over the Chinese in the Ladakh region as their fighters have to fly and take off from very high altitude bases while the Indian fleet can take off from plains and reach the mountainous region in almost no time.

The Indian Air Force due to the speed of its assets can deploy aircraft squadrons at rapid speeds all across the country and despite limited resources, can use them very effectively.




How much land does a generous pajeet is going to give up this time? 😉

The PLAA is probing the IAF reactions and responses!!! Looks like the Hindutva media has got into a higher drive...

IMO, based on the 02/27 experience, the entire IAF fleet engaging at the LAC can be made ineffective in less than 15 minutes....

Thank god we have Akash....
Lol, Akash is short ranged SAM, which have limited ground clutter rejection capability, Laddakh is Hilly area and it is on a tank , difficult to move in the mountainous area, you have better option ay be you should deploy Israeli sypder SAM which is much better than your Akash

This is where Akash is even more dangerous.... Because Ladakh being hilly area to target Indian military installations plaaf fighters will have to come to low altitude for accuracy..... And here Akash will be a very dangerous.... You can't target enemy with pin point accuracy flying on high altitude in Ladakh type region my friend...

Just see the clarity of picture provided by our satellite..... It looks as if someone has taken it from terrace nearby..... isn't it Big....

Now Imagine crazy BRAHMOS on the way towards this base after our satelite provided such a clear images to it....

Maintaining active airspace monitoring operations against both PLAAF and PAF is not what the IAF was built for(despite all the horse-shit) - they will burn through their maintenance queues, training schedules and airframe capabilities very quickly if this does not "calm down" for them ...

lol it old radar can't reject ground clutter, and no need to come lower altitude to improve accuracy, today military tech allow fighter jets to achieve 10 meter accuracy from 9 km or 30,000 feet altitude

BRAHMOUSE, BRAMOUSE,BRAHMOUSE lol, you guys presentencing that you BRAHMOUSE IS LIKE A GOD AND INVINCIBLE/INVISIBLE MISSILE, they have same tech in fact they have better tech than you
