IAF reenforces its westerns flank

India plans to reenforce its eastern front, the border with China, moving two squadrons, of 18 aircrafts each, Sukhoi-30 aircraft, adding advanced helicopters, strengthening runways and upgrading other air force facilities.
It is planned, to station in this front somes squadrons with part of the 126 new generation combat aircrafts which are planned to adquire in the short term.
Tradicionally, India s military might has been largely focused on countering the threat from Pakistan, but this time the tension coms from the opposite border.
China and India, have had a very tense relationship and hey have been gotten to register conflicts in the past, and due to this India dont want to be caught with a lower guard.
Air Marshall P.K. Babora, Chief of the India´s Eastern Air Command said: Rather, we are sending a strong message to everyone that we are ready for any misadventure from all corners.
Even both countries have signed a treaty to maintain peace and tranquility along the disputed frontier and agreed to find a political solution to the row, talks have hardly made progress since the past conflict of 1962.
Babora also mentioned: Tension will remain with China on the issue of the boundary, but we do not expect a conflict, only minor pinpricks.
