    Phew! No history repeat: China dispatched jets to scramble Indian aircrafts along Arunachal border : Northeast, News - India Today
    ~
    The battle games between India and China continue on the disputed boundary between the two neighbours, with the two sides flirting dangerously close to an accidental conflict on the 50th anniversary of the 1962 War.
    On October 30, the defence brass of the two countries had some anxious moments after nuclear-armed Chinese fighter aircraft were dispatched to scramble Indian jets flying in the Tawang region of Arunachal Pradesh.
    Sources say the incidents were reported by the Indian Air Force (IAF) to the defence ministry and a separate report by India's external intelligence agency, the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), was also filed on the affair.
    Mail Today has in its possession the report on the incident.
    Around 3pm on that day, someIAF jets were on a routine sortie mission in Arunachal Pradesh, when they were picked up on their Lhasa-based radar by the Chinese, senior officials privy to the deliberations following the incident said.
    Alarmed by the Indian jets, thebrass of the PLAAF, the Chinese Air Force, set off a chain reaction. This resulted in two Chinese Sukhoi-27 jets taking off from the Gonggar air base in Tibet within minutes.
    After taking off around 3:04 pm, the Chinese aircraft flew southeast towards the direction of the Indian aircraft.There were some anxious moments on the Indian side when the Chinese aircraft were picked up on the radar at 3:29 pm near Cuona.
    Officials say the drama lasted for around 50 minutes and just 30 km short of the international boundary- which is few seconds for a supersonic aircraft- the Chinese fighters, realising theIAF jets had no intention of anoffensive move, turned back.
    Sources said the RAW report, sent to the government on November 9, noted the unusual activity of the Chinese aircraft, which was described as a reaction of theChinese against Indian activityin the Tawang sector.
    While no actual scramble took place, what is scary about theaffair is that the radars lost track of the Chinese aircraft twice while the Indian aircraft disappeared from the radar once. In a hostile situation, these incidents can lead to accidental triggers.
    Sources told Mail Today , the Chinese Sukhoi-27 was provided tactical radar support by the 42 Radar Regiment of the PLAAF, which is deployed all over Tibet.
    The PLAAF is the largest air force in Asia with close to 1,600 aircraft, and the Russian made Sukhoi-27 is a key strike fighter for the force.
    China has been ramping up itsstrategic assets in Tibet for quick reaction in a war situation.
    It already has five operationalairfields at Gonggar, Pangta, Linchi, Hoping and Gar Gunsa.
    The extension of the Qinghai Tibet Railway line to Xigaze and another line from Kashgarto Hotan in the Xinjiang UighurAutonomous Region is also in progress.
    Strategically, the Tibet Autonomous Region is pivotal for China's security as it comprises approximately one-fourth of China's land mass, and it continues to have aggressive deploymentsin the region.
    While the new Chinese leadership led by Xi Jinping may not risk a war with India, the chances of a local commander triggering off a conflict cannot be ruled out given the growing intensity of the provocative incidents on the Line of Actual Control.
    Mail Today has repeatedly flagged the clear and present danger emanating from China.
    What New Delhi needs to do isensure that a credible mechanism is in place which is operational between the two sides to avoid any accidental action by either side.
    The fact is that there is a huge trust deficit between the two countries and a small error at an operational level on the boundary can lead to disastrous consequences for the two countries.

    Some holes in our radar network,we have to plug it. Due to mountains,we need dense packing of radars.

    so it still means the following

    1) IAF dont have balls (still phat-ti ha) that the only word come in my mind.

    2) Infrastructure along china border still of 1960ies

    3) Our radars on that border still of 1930ies

    4) Chini are better equipped and battle ready than Indians in tibet and AP areas:sad::sad:

    Sources told Mail Today , the Chinese Sukhoi-27 was provided tactical radar support by the 42 Radar Regiment of the PLAAF, which is deployed all over Tibet.

    Shoddy reporting. Chinese do not have guts to petrol their subs with nukes and the clown is mentioning nuclear capable su-27.

    All nuke power states in the world use fighter jets and missles for nuke delievery. For example,we use jaguar and mirage. That doesn't mean all our jags and mir are nuclear capable. Only some of them. Likewise china use su27 platform. That doesn't mean the intercepted jets are necessarily have nuke carrying capacity.

    worrying thing is we lost track of our jet 2 times and we only able to pick them at cuona but they tracked when we are on our side.
