    IAF Intelligence report raises alarm over the build up of Chinese Air force in Tibet.:taunt1::taunt1::taunt1:


    Intelligence report of the Indian Air force raises alarm over the build up of Chinese Air force fighters in Tibet. The report says that the number of sorties flown by the Chinese Air force is the highest for a calendar year till date and stands at more then 1200 .

    Sortie rates of Chinese air force over last three years have been steadily rising and in 2014 their has been 1200 sorties compared to less then 500 sorties in 2013 indicating airfield is now fully operationalised for all weather and pilots are carrying out higher sorties to familiarize themselves to terrain and weather conditions.

    China has deployed Su-27 fighters at Gonkar airfield which is an all-weather airfield located at an altitude of 16,000 feet near the Tibetan capital Lhasa. Airfield over the years has been upgraded to operate Aircraft’s for all seasons and also has seen construction of underground hangars for aircraft protection . Aircraft’s deployed in this region can take out targets in India from Ladakh to Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh.

    Indian Air Force in response has stationed Su-30MKI fighters in Chabua and Tezpur in Assam which Chinese fears can take out Qinghai-Tibet Railway which runs between Xining in western China’s Qinghai province and Lhasa in Tibet which is crucial to provide supplies to their troops in case of conflict .

    These are highly coloured intelligence reports, none actionable. I bet it has been written by paid arms merchant lobbyiest'.

    Yes, China has to improve its infrastructure in Tibet. That is given. Every country will work to improve whatever they built thirty years back. India is changing the simple landing strips near China border to military airfields. Chinese will not sit idle, they will improve to.

    The question here is that what can antiquated PLAAF do with 80% of aircrafts of 60s design, which are not even real but copies of MIG 19 and MIG 21s. They are good for show and tell. With only 200 modern aircrafts Lavi and Sukhoi 27 type, they are very deficient on modernization. There are only four and three prototype of stealth J 20 and J 30 type. There is long road ahead before they become operational. Moreover these are to be fitted with high efficiency engines and major armaments which are not forthcoming anytime sooner.

    Chinese do not let outsider a glimpse of their new aircraft capabilities. All we know is thru their press releases in official newspapers like Global Times. It is totally unlike India where "fanboys" take time to pick out every aspect of DRDO development and tear it apart. Then their is a huge lobby of Arms Merchants which vie with each other to prove and disapprove military purchases. They do a great job of pointing defects in anything purchased from the other. China is blessed with none of these. The flip side is that they do not receive criticism hence are unable to begin right.

    Hence all these intelligence reports are doctored, not worth a penny.
