Army Chief MM Narwane, who returned from a two-day tour of eastern Ladakh, assured Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Defense Minister Rajnath Singh that India’s forces on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) were fully capable of stopping any invasion or daring of China. And are ready. The soldiers of the two countries are face to face at a distance of just 500 meters at the faceoff point. The Indian Air Force has now also deployed the Akash Missile Air Defense System on the LAC.
In the last few weeks, China has acquired state-of-the-art fighter aircraft like the Sukhoi-30. These and other bombers are currently deployed by China far behind the border, but are often seen hovering over the LAC.
Now the entire sector has an advanced quick-response surface-to-air missile defense system, which can destroy any Chinese fighter jet in a few seconds. Apart from this, India has also deployed Howitzer cannons, infantry vehicles and about 10,000 additional soldiers on the border. The Air Force has deployed combat aircraft such as Multirole Combat Mirage-2000, Sukhoi-30 MKI, MiG-29 and Jaguar, which are regularly patrolling the skies. India is well positioned and ready in the forward areas with strong military strength.
