Move To Counter China? IAF To Operate Sukhoi At Jolly Grant Airport For ‘Future’ Need

The Indian Air Force is activating civil airfield of Jolly Grant airport in Dehradun. A detachment of two Sukhoi (Su-30 MKI) aircraft will operate from the airport for two days – February 19 and February 20. This is being seen as a strategic move to counter China.
