    Too superficial to have any real meaning. The battlespace doesn't allow for 300 planes, let alone 1000.

    IAF has a geographical advantage.
    IAF planes taking of from lower altitude can carry a larger pay-load compaired to PLAAF planes.

    i agree that we have technological superiority but we can not ignore their numbers
    for competing with china we must increase our induction rate, production capacity
