NEW DELHI: The IAF may be grappling with a depletion in fighter squadrons but is “well-prepared” to tackle any challenge in eastern Ladakh or elsewhere from China as well as capable of dealing with a two-front contingency if it arises, Air Chief Marshal VR Chaudhari said on Tuesday.
China has gone in for a major upgrade of its airbases facing India, with hardened shelters and other infrastructure to increase deployment of fighters and bombers, but its air force incurs “a huge penalty” in operating from such high-altitude areas, he said. “We are fully prepared to deal with any situation and challenge in the region,” he said.
