PAF Sihala : 33°32'39.60"N 73°16'3.04"E Google Earth SAtellite Imagery

A possible air defence site. Could not identify the SAM missiles. Might be old ones on verge of decommisioning.

Wikipedia says Pakistan operated/operates HQ-2B or Chinese ripoff of S-75 Dvina (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-75_Dvina)

So it's Pakistan Air Force (PAF) operated HQ-2 Surface to Air Missile (SAM) Air Defence Site.
Looks like that missile. Protects Rawalpindi

Spotted this today.
Large construction activity at INS Utkrosh/Port Blair Airport. My guess is this might be for P8I. Navy's Do-228 & helicopters visible nearby.

Yes, Have been wondering since past few months about this expansion.

could not find anything in civilian airport expansion plans. So must be for IN/IAF.

Permanent base for P-8I like they have at Mumbai airport.

They should be thinking a bit ahead and contructing a few Hardened Air Shelters for Sukhoi and Jaguars @ Port Blair Air Base. And a parallel taxiway.

What looks like new shelters/infra for new incoming P-8I at Goa/Dabolim Air base

P8-I With Dabolim (DAB) markings under testing


The absolute nincompoopness of Navy and Civilian babus who decided to jam pack terminal/buildings/infra close to the Runway.
And as a result have issues of broken parallel taxiway

So during the month of April Chinese started carrying out construction activities in Upper Subansiri District. It's an area between Longju and PLA's C shaped Company Post at Maja, Upper Subansiri District.
Coordinates: 28.6050389, 93.4004721
This construction is approx 2km inside India from Google Earth IB marking.
PLA is well known to have occupied this area since 2000s. Some background about the occupation can be read here : https://theprint.in/defence/south-c...s-salami-slicing-now-reaches-arunachal/73316/

By August there seems to several structures assembled. It could be new camps to house soilders due to current standoff? Not sure.
Any expert who can help to figure out what it is?

Construction activity at Palam air force base. My guess is that it may be hangar for newly acquired B777 VVIP planes. Also 737 BBJ visible.

Can you guys do some OSINT on this image (like compare it with available satellite imagery)?

It appears to be extremely important.


Operation Bandar was the codename for the 2019 Balakot Airstrike.
