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.

“The detachment would operate from the airfield for two days from Feb 19 for area familiarisation before returning to their parent base,” the IAF said.

The move by the Indian Air Force (IAF) is viewed as India’s preparation for perceived Chinese aggression in near future, in the wake of violation of airspace in Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh in the past.

The move comes amid increasing assertiveness by Chinese soldiers along nearly 4,000 km-long Sino-India border which includes a portion in Uttarakhand. Read More…
