    After a long gap, Pakistan seems to be upping the ante in the Saurashtra-Kutch region of Gujarat. There have been reports that Pakistan has developed an airbase along the Gujarat border.

    The country has developed a modern airfield in Bholari for military aircraft operations close to the border with India in the Hyderabad district of Pakistan's Sindh province. The Pakistan Air Force is going to deploy its fleet of Chinese JF-17 fighters here.

    "Though the airfield has been in existence for some time now, activities like intensive flying of combat aircraft is a recent phenomenon," sources told IndiaToday.in. The Pakistani Air Force is inducting a large number of JF-17s from China to match the Indian Air Force capabilities on its eastern front.
    Pakistan's Special Service Group (Navy) commandos are also based in the vicinity of the Hyderabad base and have been known for training Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists for carrying out attacks using the sea route.

    Following the rapid development on the Pakistan side, the Cabinet Committee on Security headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has already cleared the setting up of a forward fighter base in Deesa, Gujarat.

    The airfield will plug the air gaps on the border but will take at least three to four years to extend the runway, construct fighter pens and other infrastructure.

    It would need heaps of air defence (long range SAM is now crucial) and supporting bases.

    This news is 6 months old.

    Anyway, it should provide more efficient support to the PN.

    Oh the title is kind of misleading...it should added Indian Gujjarat... Otherwise I was thinking Gujjarat city in Punjab as it is also near border...
    Great news, we need to increase air strength near along all especially eastern borders.

    Really six months old and it got reported in your newspaper just 2 hrs ago... Is there any reference on PDF about it?
    And usual poor journalism....Wrong image....It is NOT JF17 - the beauty.

    so you have no source as usual.
    Are you that stupid to think that Pakistan will have nukes on an airbase so close to the border?... Those are nuclear attack proof bunkers ....not for nukes... Pakistan uses missiles for nukes ....not A/Cs.
