 Indias three army border forces increase the number of Chinook Apache helicopters


The Indian army is gathering in Ladakh! The Indian army has mobilized more troops to the front line, and the number of troops stationed in Ladakh is twice as large as before, the Tribune said Tuesday Reported that the highway to Liecheng has been taken over by the Indian military, a large number of infantry, artillery and engineering forces are converging on Ladakh. Photos circulated on social media also showed large numbers of military vehicles towing towed artillery on the highway leading to the front line.

According to the report, due to poor road conditions near the actual control line, the Indian air force sent a large number of transport aircraft to participate in the rescue mission. The air force, composed of American made C-17, Russian made Il-76 heavy transport aircraft and an-32 medium-sized transport aircraft, has made more flights than ever before to air transport personnel and materials from all places to Ladakh as soon as possible.

In 1999, the Indian army sent out the most powerful Mi-26 heavy transport helicopter to airlift artillery, weapons and other key equipment to the war zone, which was praised by the Indian army as playing a crucial role in Indias victory. But this time, we did not see them - the Indian army now has three mi-26s that need major repair and are unable to move out. Instead, India deployed the US made CH-47 Chinook transport helicopter to Chandigarh for tactical movement of troops and equipment. The unique feature of the heavy helicopter is that it can easily hang the m777 ultra light howitzer, which will play a key role in fighting in mountainous areas, Indias NDTV website said Monday.

The American trump card played by the Indian military at the same time is not only zhinugan. Indias NDTV website reported on the 20th that a large number of American made Apache helicopter gunships of Indian Air Force appeared over the city of Ladakh on the same day. According to Indian military analysts, the rapid investment of Indian army in this tank killer is due to the news that China has deployed tanks near the actual control line in Ladakh area. According to Tribune, the Indian Navy also took part in the operation. The p-8i patrol aircraft imported from the United States was mainly used for air reconnaissance, mapping the area for the troops and monitoring the surrounding electromagnetic signals.

Air fighters ready to go

Indias Air Force Commander badawulia, who visited the front air base in Licheng, confirmed that Indian Air Force fighters were patrolling the air and monitoring activities from China, Indias NDTV website reported Monday. Our fighters are fully armed and ready to respond to cross-border operations by Chinese aircraft, he said.

According to the times of India, badawulia said that the Chinese air force deployed near the actual control line would conduct routine exercises every summer, but we have noticed that this years deployment is more than usual.. Its clear that we are well prepared and properly deployed to deal with any emergency, he stressed I can assure all India that we can wash away the humiliation and never let those brave men die in vain. The Indian Air Force has transferred the upgraded MiG-29, SU-30MKI, mirage 2000 and Jaguar attack aircraft to the frontier airport, ready to carry out emergency missions at any time, the Daily Mail said Tuesday.

India announced on June 18 that it would urgently purchase 12 SU-30MKI and 21 upgraded MiG-29 fighters from Russia, the US military observer magazine said Tuesday. Russia says it will deliver the fighters in the shortest time once India submits its procurement plan. According to the report, these two Russian made fighters are the main aircraft types of the Indian air force, which means that the Indian Air Force has ready-made maintenance infrastructure and trained pilots, and these fighters can form combat effectiveness soon after they are delivered to the Indian air force. However, the report believes that these fighters may not be able to change the current air combat power gap between China and India. The main model currently deployed in front of the Indian air force is the upgraded MiG-29. Although it has advanced functions, it is unlikely to confront the new generation of fighters deployed by China in the Western Theater, such as the j-10c, j-16 and j-20 . For example, the j-10c is equipped with a powerful AESA radar and thunderbolt-15 air-to-air missile, with a range of 2-3 times that of the MiG-29 missile of the same kind, the report said. According to the report, if the Indian air force wants to change the passive situation, it can only rely on the Russian made su-57 and other updated fighters.

Andaman Islands strictly guard against Chinese submarines

In the Andaman Islands, thousands of kilometers from the Himalayas, the Indian Navy is not idle. The Indian Navy has asked its ships in the Andaman Islands to be more alert, especially against the penetration of Chinese submarines, the times of India said Tuesday.

According to the report, senior Indian Navy officials believe that after China suffered casualties in Ladakh, it may not continue to expand the conflict in the actual control line, but make up in other places, including the strategic Andaman Islands. For this reason, the Indian Navy requires the deployment of multiple missile frigates and even destroyers to the local area, as well as the continuous air reconnaissance of 3-4 p-8i patrol aircraft.

The U.S. Forbes website said Tuesday that in the current tense land border situation between China and India, the Indian Navy will still focus on the Indian Ocean and Malacca. According to the report, the Indian Navy is determined to increase its forces in the Andaman Islands near the Malacca Strait, mainly in response to the Chinese Navy, especially the frequent entry of Chinese submarines into the Indian Ocean.

According to the report, at present, India has built several air bases in the Andaman Islands for fighters and long-range reconnaissance aircraft to take off and land. But the Indian naval base is far away from here, and it will take a long time to reinforce. If Indian ships are directly deployed to the Andaman Islands, it is more suitable to deal with local emergencies.. In addition, Indian conventional submarines are suitable for operation in relatively shallow waters, which can provide protection for Indian nuclear submarines patrolling in deep water.
