    PLAAF for the surveillance Radar in Tibet.

    800px Roundel of the Peoples Liberation Army Air Forcesvg


    PLAAF for the surveillance Radar in Tibet.

    Radar Cover – Two Radar Regiments (RRs) have been deployed by PLAAF for the surveillance of Tibet and South Xinjiang region. These regiments cover the flights from the mainland and monitor Indian air activities along the Sino- Indian border. Medium and high level cover in TAR is fairly good. Considering the elevated locations of the PLAAF radars, it is quite likely that movement of Indian strike aircraft may be picked up well before they enter Tibet air space.




    Types Of Radar, Pics and Information

    ECRIEE / CETC JYL-1 Long-range 3D Air Defence Radar

    JYL 1 Radar 5S

    The JYL-1 radar is carried in the 2004 CRIA listing of Chinese indigenous products.

    The JYL-1 is a long-range 3D surveillance radar typical of those assets that might be found in a modern air defence network.

    It functions in the E/F-band region and might be used as either a military or commercial asset for air traffic control and management purposes.

    Coverage: (Pd=80%, Pf=10-6, SW1, RCS=2m2)
    Azimuth 0º ~ 360º
    Elevation: 0º ~ 25º
    Search range; 320km
    Height: 25,000m

    Measurement Accuracy (rms):
    Range: 100m
    Azimuth: 0.3º
    Height: 600m @ 200km
    Azimuth: 0.3º

    Resolution:
    Range: 200m
    Azimuth 1.5º

    Reliability:
    MTBF: ≥ 800hrs
    MTTR: ≤ 0.5 hrs
    In the long-range search mode, max PRF to be expected is approx 430pps.










    CETC YLC-18 High Mobility Medium Range Low Altitude 3D Radar

    YLC 18 Radar 1S

    his is a two-vehicle convoy, high mobility, medium-range, low-altitude 3D radar announced by CETC in June 2007 at Singapore.

    The reported system features are excellent low-altitude performance with high measurement accuracy, strong ECCM capability.

    Specifications:
    Operating frequency: EF-band
    Coverage: (Pd = 80%, RCS = 2m2)
    Range: ≥ 250km
    Height: ≥ 12,000m
    Elevation: 0º ~ 35º
    Azimuth: 0º ~ 360º

    Its detection range suggest instantaneous PRF of 600pps thus operational PRF of approx 400 is suspected.

    Measurement accuracy: (rms)
    Azimuth: ≤ 0.3º
    Range: ≤ 100m
    Height: ≤ 600m (within 200km)
    Assembly/disassembly: 20mins/4 persons
    MTBCF: ≥ 1,000 hrs
    MTTR: ≤ 30 mins

    In view of its 3D capability and potential to control aircraft and surface-to-air weapons, its likely frequency cover is shown, which is within the ITU regulated bands.



    Besides having Surveillance Radars PLAAF and PLA deployed SAM radars which have range of 150-200kms..

    PLAAF`s UAV

    PLAAF`s UAV

    800px Roundel of the Peoples Liberation Army Air Forcesvg

    China is investing considerably in the development of UAVs. China already has a number of short-range and longer-range UAVs in its inventory for reconnaissance, surveillance, and electronic warfare (EW) roles. Research efforts also are underway across a range of UAV technologies with several developmental UAV programs underway related to reconnaissance, surveillance, communications, and EW.

    During the 2006 Zhuhai Airshow, 10 UAV models and mock-ups were displayed, including the Tianyi (Sky Wing) UAV and Soar Dragon high-altitude unmanned scout. However, beyond the UAV models on display, there was virtually no company literature on China's UAVs, except for the "PW UAV" built by the China National Precision Machinery Corp. Models and mock-ups are little evidence to support a strong interest by PLAAF in UAVs. And the PLAAF has shown little interest in UAV surveillance operations.

    "Surveillance or command information is definitely not seen as the primary mission of the Air Force," Cliff said. "I don't recall anything about the Air Force providing surveillance or command-and-control information to the other services. This is consistent with previous observations that joint thinking and practice are still underdeveloped in China."



    Xianglong Unmanned Reconnaissance Aerial Vehicle


    xianglong02large

    During the Air Show China 2006, the Chengdu Aircraft Corporation (CAC) unveiled the model of its “Xianglong” unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) concept. The UAV appeared to be a high-altitude, long-duration UAV for strategic reconnaissance role, similar in size and arrangement to the U.S. RQ-4 Global Hawk. The Xianglong completed its high-speed taxing test in October 2008, and the maiden flight is expected to take place in early 2009.

    Xianglong is equipped with a jet engine mounted on top of the fuselage between the V-shape tail wings. According to Chinese media reports, Xianglong has a normal take-off weight of 7,500kg and a mission payload of 650kg. The UAV has a cruise speed of 750km/h and a maximum range of 7,000km. Unlike the Global Hawk, Xianglong does not possess global operation capability. The UAV is only intended to operate in Asia and Pacific region.








    ChangKong-1 Unmanned Aerial Vehicle / Target Drone

    ck117yl

    The ChangKong-2 supersonic target drone was derived from the ChangKong-1. The CK-2 programme began in the early 1990s in response to the PLAAF’s requirement for a supersonic target drone to test its new generation air-to-air missile. No detailed information on the CK-2 is available, but it is understood that the drone first flew in the early 1990s, and its first successful supersonic flight took place in early 1995. The drone features a digital flight control, which was seen as a major breakthrough in China's UAV technology.

    The mission equipment onboard the ChangKong-1 includes five passive radar reflectors, four HaiYing light reflecting missiles, and wingtip-mounted infrared equipment pods.

    Dimentions: Wingspan 7.5m; Length 8.435m; Height 2.955m

    Operational altitude: 500 ~ 5000m










    WuZhen-5 Unmanned Reconnaissance Aerial Vehicle

    PLAAF Offensive Combat readiness against India

    The PLA shot down several AQM-34N Firebee URAV operated by the U.S. Strategic Air Command during their missions over China mainland and North Vietnam in the 1960s. At least one Firebee was recovered by the PLA in relatively good conditions. The UAV was later carefully inspected by the Chinese engineers for possible reverse-engineering. In 1969 Beijing Institute of Aeronautics (now BUAA) took the lead to develop an indigenous optical-camera URAV based on the AQM-34N. The development programme consisted of three primary sub-systems: UAV airframe, WP-11 turbojet engine, and the ground control equipment.

    The fuselage of the WZ-5 consists of six sections: the radar compartment, the camera compartment, the fuel tank, the engine compartment, the avionics compartment, and the parachute compartment. The UAV has five camera windows, and is fitted with day-light and infrared cameras for imagery intelligence (IMINT) missions. The aerial photos are stored on the films carried inside the UAV fuselage.

    Dimentions: Wingspan 9.76m; Length 8.97m; Height 2.18m

    Harpy Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

    harpy g

    PLA acquired an unknown number of the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) Harpy unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in 1994. The deal was not revealed until late 2004, when Washington was reported to have pressured the Israeli government to ‘roll back’ its defence relations with China. According to the reports, the U.S. intelligence spotted the PLA deploying Harpy UAV in its joint exercise held near the Taiwan Strait in 2004.

    The Harpy is a unique weapon system with features of both UAV and cruise missile. The system is designed to detect, attack and destroy enemy radar. Launched from ground vehicle or surface ship far away from the battle zone, the UAV flies autonomously to the patrol area. The UAV’s radar seeker constantly search for hostile radar signal. Once the enemy radar is detected, the system can automatically compare the signal with its database and prioritise the threat of the target. Once the enemy radar is verified, the UAV make a near vertical dive to the target and destroy it with its high explosive warhead. The warhead is set to detonate just above the target to maximise the damage. The smart UAV can also abort the attack and continue loitering if enemy radar signal disappears during the attack.

    The PLA has reportedly returned some of its Harpy UAV back to Israel in 2004 to be upgraded with new seekers that enable visual identification and attack of target even after the enemy radar emitter is turned off. This would further enhance the PLA’s capabilities in UAV and anti-radiation warfare. The PLA may also uses the Harpy technology to improve the performance of its own designs.

    Countermeasures by IAF..

    Countermeasures by IAF..

    800px Ensign of the Indian Air Forcesvg

    The IAF has always been weighted heavily towards offensive air operations. During any hostilities India cannot commit her entire Air Force on one front against China. She will perforce have to plan sufficient reserve forces to counter any moves by Pakistan. With the balance of the forces she would undertake to neutralize the important Chinese air fields in Tibet. It may be difficult to gain air superiority in the Tactical Battle Area (TBA), however it would be possible to achieve a Favorable Air Situation for limited periods of time.


    keytargets


    The IAF in some respects would have a relative advantage over the PLAAF in regard to air operations. This is particularly so for aircraft operating from the plains of the Central and NE sectors bordering China. These aircraft would not have a maximum load penalty as compared to those operating from airfields at high elevations.

    In the Aksai Chin sector India faces such a limitation for offensive capability because of the high elevation of the launching bases. With fairly potent striking power, the IAF could bring about meaningful results in her counter air operations.

    However, a relative disadvantage that she would face would be in finding suitable
    counter air targets within the ROA of her strike forces. This is particularly important in view of the China to operational air to air refueling. China in all likelihood would base her strike elements in relatively secure locations well beyond the ROA of the IAF strike forces. The advantages of air to air refueling accruing to the PLAAF would degrade the effectiveness of IAF counter air operations. This would show up as a serious limitation for the IAF strike forces.


    iafstrikeforce

    Interdiction operations in the Tibetan plateau should pay good dividends. SU-30MKI could be effectively employed in this role by the IAF. CAS operations in the NE sector are likely to be hampered because of the terrain and the prevailing weather. In the Aksai Chin sector shortage of IAF airfields in the vicinity of the TBA would reduce the available effort, though attack helicopters would prove effective in both sectors. Heliborne operations could pay rich dividends in moving small forces for sabotage behind enemy-lines.

    India would also have to invest in more modern Electronic Warfare equipment and
    develop or purchase anti-radiation missiles. IAF ALCM of PJ-10 is vary helpful weapon in destroying Enemy Infrastructure Inside TBA..

    India need to concentrate attacks on PLA supply-lines once the PLAAF airfield are out of action, The supply routes in tibet specially rail and road networks needed to be cutoff, This action benifit in two ways:


    1. This will slow the repir work on Chinese side..
    2. It will IA & IAF enough time to attack vulnerable PLA posts..



    India needs to concentrate on SEAD missions too, As it is expected that every PLA critical position ( C&C, arty, Supply Convoys etc ) will be protected by mobile AAA & SAMs




    Anti-Radiation Missiles:




    R-27P

    r 27p crw 0157

    One more variant of the R-27 is an R-27P (AA-10D "Alamo-D") missile with a passive seeker. This is an anti-radar homing missile launched against aircraft using active radars, such as AWACS and jamming aircraft. Missile's long-range variant with an extended range engine is the R-27PE.

    BetAB-150/-250/-500 Penetration Bombs

    BetAB

    This family of penetration bombs was developed to give Russian and allied air forces a capability of attacking concrete and hardened structures such as airfield runways, concrete shelters, dams, sluices and other solid objects. Before the 1990s, the only known bombs in this family were the BetAB-150 DS and the BetAB-250. However, in the early 1990s limited details were released on two larger and more up to date bombs designated BetAB-500 and BetAB-500 ShP. The designation letters BetAB stand for betonoboynaya aviatsionnaya bomba meaning 'concrete-piercing aircraft bomb'. The designation numbers refer to the bomb size category, and any further letters signify special applications. The BetAB-500 ShP was primarily developed for cratering airfield runways and is delivered at low level and high speed. It is thought that this bomb is rocket-assisted which could account for the ShP designation. All the bombs are designed to withstand the high g forces encountered by combat manoeuvres of high-speed attack aircraft, and are fitted with standard Russian spaced suspension lugs allowing them to be carried under the wings or fuselage of some aircraft, or in the bomb bays of larger bombers. The bombs are believed to be cleared for carriage on MiG-21 'Fishbed', MiG-27 'Flogger', MiG-29 'Fulcrum', Su-22 'Fitter', Su-24 'Fencer', Su-25 'Frogfoot', Su-27 'Flanker', Tu-95 'Bear', Tu-16 'Badger', Tu-22 'Blinder' and Tu-22M 'Backfire' aircraft of the Russian and allied air forces.

    Kunal bhai is there a possibility of using the Mirages as well (until the MRCA arrive) in case of such a conflict or do you expect that MiG-29s and Mirages will be kept as a possible backup incase our Western side decides to get adventurous. One has to consider this scenario very well since even Gen. Singh mentioned it.

    what we need most is assembly facilities to build more fighters every year.
    and i dont think GOI is giving much attention to it.
    the numbers we have are seriously very very low.
    if PLAAF attacks it will surely attack with huge numbers and then all our force will be used in defense and offensive strike will just be a dream..

    SEAD- under Strike force

    SEAD ( Destruction of airbase`s airdefence AAA, RADAR & SAMs ) under Strike force

    su30mkikh31as17krypton

    SU-30MKI
    Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses (SEAD) also known as "Wild Weasels" and "Iron Hand" operations in the USA, are military actions to suppress enemy surface-based air defenses (Surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) and anti-aircraft artillery (AAA)), primarily in the first hours of an attack.

    PLAAF Offensive Combat readiness against India
    KH-31P range over 100kms
    R 27
    The Russian R-27P(AA-10) is the medium range air-to-air missile varient fitted with the 9B-1032 anti-radiation seeker. Due to its ability to sneak upon its target undetected by radar warning receiver and longer effective range OF 80KM

    The weapons most often associated with this mission are anti-radiation missiles (ARMs) such as the KH-31P and R-27P. Weapons used for SEAD missions can be anything which damages or destroys a component of an air defense system. A Paveway LGB, for example, is not a SEAD-specific munition but, when used to destroy a radar antenna, it achieves the objective of Suppression of Enemy Air Defense.

    RUB 500 Cluster Bombs

    800px SFW CBU 97
    CBU-87 general-purpose cluster munition are often used against these fixed-location SAM sites, often for "clean-up" of a site whose radar or C&C facilities are first destroyed by a longer-range ARM or AGM.

    Possibly the most effective type of unguided ("dumb") weapon used during SEAD strikes are cluster bombs, because many SAM sites are dispersed over a fairly wide area, in order to increase the difficulty of inflicting serious damage on the battery, and the relative "softness" of the targets (missile launchers, exposed radars, etc.).

    EW pods for Fighters

    Stealth

    800px Ensign of the Indian Air Forcesvg


    Electronic warfare
    Electronic warfare (EW) refers to any action involving the use of the electromagnetic spectrum or directed energy to control the spectrum, attack an enemy, or impede enemy assaults via the spectrum. The purpose of electronic warfare is to deny the opponent the advantage of, and ensure friendly unimpeded access to, the EM spectrum. EW can be applied from air, sea, land, and space by manned and unmanned systems, and can target communication, radar, or other services. EW includes three major subdivisions: Electronic Attack (EA), Electronic Protection (EP), and Electronic warfare Support (ES).




    mig 273
    EL/L-8222 self-protection jamming pod (Israel)
    http://www.iai.co.il/17917-en/ELTA.aspx



    Electronic Protection (EP) (previously known as electronic protective measures (EPM) or electronic counter countermeasures (ECCM)) involves actions taken to protect personnel, facilities, and equipment from any effects of friendly or enemy use of the electromagnetic spectrum that degrade, neutralize, or destroy friendly combat capability. Jamming is not part of EP, it is an EA measure.

    The use of flare rejection logic on an IR missile to counter an adversary’s use of flares is EP. While defensive EA actions and EP both protect personnel, facilities, capabilities, and equipment, EP protects from the EFFECTS of EA (friendly and/or adversary). Other examples of EP include spread spectrum technologies, use of Joint Restricted Frequency List (JRFL), emissions control (EMCON), and low observability or "stealth"





    Su 30MKISAP 14SAP 518 MiroslavGyurosi 1S
    KNIRTI SAP-518 wingtip jamming pod, displayed at MAKS 2009. Concurrently KNIRTI displayed a high power support jamming pod, the SAP-14, intended for centreline carriage on a large pylon. To date little has been disclosed on these pod designs, which are likely to retain the wideband phased array / lens antenna system first used on the Sorbstiya.


    Electronic support
    Electronic Warfare Support (ES), is the subdivision of EW involving actions tasked by, or under direct control of, an operational commander to search for, intercept, identify, and locate or localize sources of intentional and unintentional radiated electromagnetic (EM) energy for the purpose of immediate threat recognition, targeting, planning, and conduct of future operations.

    An overlapping discipline, signals intelligence (SIGINT) is the related process of analyzing and identifying the intercepted frequencies (e.g. as a mobile phone or RADAR). SIGINT is broken into three categories: ELINT, COMINT, and FISINT.

    Where these activities are under the control of an operational commander and being applied for the purpose of situational awareness, threat recognition, or EM targeting, they also serve the purpose of Electronic Warfare surveillance (ES).



    tusker
    'Tusker' ECM pod has been developed by DRDO, The jammer is already in service, primarily intended for the MiG-27ML.

    Electronic attack
    Electronic attack (EA) or electronic countermeasures (ECM) involves the use of the electromagnetic energy, or anti-radiation weapons to attack personnel, facilities, or equipment with the intent of degrading, neutralizing, or destroying enemy combat capability and is considered a form of fires

    EA operations can be detected by an adversary due to their active transmissions. Many modern EA techniques are considered to be highly classified. Examples of EA include communications jamming, IADS suppression, DE/LASER attack, expendable decoys (e.g., flares and chaff), and counter radio controlled improvised explosive device (C-RCIED) systems.

    In strike force SU-30MKI will be equipped with KNIRTI SAP-518 wingtip jamming pod and other fighter will be using EL/L-8222 self-protection jamming pod, The Pods will make strike force invisible to opponents radar..

    IAF CAS-Fighters

    Indian Air-force Close support aircraft..


    800px Ensign of the Indian Air Forcesvg

    iafr
    MAPS
    As u can see, Arunachal pradesh lack airstrips coz of terrain and under develop, In this situation IAF have at least 30 airbases across northeast to provide CAS, these Airbases are lifeline for IA troops on the ground, In WAR these Airbase will be the top priority of PLAAF strike teams..


    Close air support

    In military tactics, close air support (CAS) is defined as air action by fixed or rotary winged aircraft against hostile targets that are close to friendly forces, and which requires detailed integration of each air mission with fire and movement of these forces.

    The determining factor for CAS is detailed integration, not proximity. CAS may need to be conducted far from friendly forces, if the mission requires detailed integration with the fire and movement of these forces. A closely related subset of air interdiction, battlefield air interdiction denotes interdiction against units with near-term effects on friendly units, but which does not require integration with friendly troop movements. The term "battlefield air interdiction" is not currently used in US joint doctrine.

    Close air support requires excellent coordination with ground forces. In advanced modern militaries, this coordination is typically handled by specialists such as Joint Fires Observers, Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC)s, and Forward Air Controllers (FAC).

    Dassault Mirage 2000
    PLAAF Offensive Combat readiness against India

    PLAAF Offensive Combat readiness against India

    Mirage25

    Mirage 2000
    India has acquired a total of 51 Mirages, which include 41 single-seater Mirage 2000Hs and 10 two-seater Mirage 2000TH trainers. The Indian Air Force named the Mirage 2000 Vajra (Thunderbolt). India also purchased appropriate stores along with the fighters, including ATLIS II pods and laser-guided weapons.

    Since India wanted the fighter quickly, the first part of an initial batch of 26 single-seaters and 4 two-seaters was shipped to the Indian Air Force (IAF) beginning in 1985 with the older M53-5 engines. These aircraft were given the designations of Mirage 2000H5 and Mirage 2000TH5. The second part of this initial batch consisted of 10 more single-seaters with the M53-P2 engine, with these aircraft designated Mirage 2000H. All the first batch was reengined with the M53-P2, with the single-seaters re-designated "Mirage 2000H" and the two-seaters re-designated Mirage 2000TH. A second batch of six Mirage 2000H single-seaters and three Mirage 2000TH two-seaters was shipped in 1987-1988.

    In 2004, the Indian government approved purchase of ten more Mirage 2000Hs, with these machines featuring improved avionics, particularly an upgraded RDM-7 radar. The Mirage 2000-5 was a contender for a planned Indian Air Force 126 fighter aircraft procurement in which it was competing with the Mikoyan MiG-35, F-16 Fighting Falcon and JAS 39 Gripen. However, Dassault announced it had replaced the Mirage 2000 with the Rafale as the contender for the deal since the Mirage 2000 production line was to be closed.

    India has announced a $1.9 billion program to arm 51 of its Mirage 2000 aircraft with the MBDA AIM-132 ASRAAM dogfighting missile beginning in 2007. Installation will require new radar, electronic warfare equipment, and updates to the cockpit and data bus. Pilot helmets will require addition of a helmet-mounted sight. These will be the first Mirage aircraft to carry the British missile and Dassault, Thales, and MBDA are to participate in the effort.[16]

    In March 2010, India and France finalized the long delayed deal to upgrade all of India's Mirage-2000H to Mirage-2000-5 Mk 2 variant with new radar systems, a new weapon suite, missiles, electronic warfare system etc.[17] French claim that the combat-proven aircraft will be upgraded to next-generation fighter level.[17]

    The first four to six Mirages will be upgraded in France, with the rest 50 or so being upgraded in India by Hindustan Aeronautics under transfer of technology.

    Under the upgrade, the entire airframe will be stripped down to be re-wired and re-equipped with new avionics, mission computers, glass cockpits, helmet-mounted displays, electronic warfare suites and of course weapon systems to extend and enhance the operational life of the multi-role fighters by around 20 years.

    "The spectacle of what is called religion, or at any rate organised religion, in India and elsewhere has filled me with horror, and I have frequently condemned it and wished to make a clean sweep of it. Almost always it seems to stand for blind belief and reaction, dogma and bigotry, superstition and exploitation, and the preservation of vested interests."

    KH-29TE/L
    The Molniya Kh-29 / AS-14 Kedge is a Russian supersonic equivalent to the French AS.30 and US AGM-65 Maverick, and is primarily intended for interdiction and close air support, and maritime strike roles. An APU-58 or AKU-58 launcher is used, on the Su-27/30 Flanker (up to 6 rounds), the MiG-27 Flogger (2 rounds), Su-17/22 Fitter (2 rounds) and Su-24M Fencer (3 round). Multiple variants exist.

    The Kh-28L (Izdeliye 63 or AS-14A) is a semi-active laser homing variant used in the manner of the AS.30L, with a 24N1 seeker. The Kh-29T (Izdeliye 64 or AS-14B) is an electro-optical variant with a TV datalink and command uplink, using the APK-9 Tekon pod. The Kh-29TE is an enhanced variant. The Kh-29D is another EO variant, equipped with a thermal imaging seeker.

    Launch weight for most variants is around 1,500 lb, with a 700 lb warhead being used most often. Range is usually cited at 16 nautical miles for a high altitude launch.

    KH-31P


    kh31p

    kh31r

    Kh-31P - passive seeker head for use as an anti-radiation missile. Stays at high altitude throughout its flight, allowing higher speeds and increasing range to 110 km (60 nmi; 70 mi). The seeker has three interchangeable modules to cover different radar frequency bands, but they can only be changed at the factory.
