Last night, IAF did an intensive night-time operation in a forward post in the eastern Ladakh in the Indo-Chinese border.
Around 1300 hours, the late-night fighter aircraft operations started with the thundering noise of take-ff of mIg-29 fighters which have been at the forefront of high-tempo operations after the hostilities broke out on the LAC.
“Night operations have an inherent element of surprise. IAF is fully trained & ready to undertake the entire spectrum of ops in any environment with help of modern platforms & motivated personnel”, said Group Captain A Rathi, a senior fighter pilot at a Forward Air Base near India-China border.
The recently commissioned in IAF, AH-64 Apache is the world’s most advanced multi-role combat helicopter. The choppers can engage 16 targets and also track 128 targets apart fro prioritising threats.
Reportedly, the Chinese military on Monday began a limited pull-back from a number of friction points in eastern Ladakh, a day after NSA Ajit Doval and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi agreed on completing the ongoing disengagement process along the LAC “expeditiously”.
