The Indian Air Force has started preparing itself for a long-term deployment on the Ladakh front.  There is a large airbase in Ladakh apart from Leh.  Apart from this, there are advanced landing grounds at Phukche, Chushul.

The Indian Air Force has started preparing itself for a long-term deployment to the Ladakh front.  The Air Force will have to prepare for the deployment of its fighter jets and helicopters along with the challenge of delivering logistics on a very large scale for the winter of Ladakh.  This year the Indian Army has also increased its deployment four to five times due to large number of army deployments on behalf of China on the Line of Control.  In order to make necessary winter arrangements for such a large number of soldiers, the Air Force is preparing to deploy the full strength of its transport aircraft.

Every year from May to September, logistics, kerosene and other essential things are transported by road and aircraft for the troops deployed in Ladakh.  There are a total of two divisions in the 14th Corps at Leh, one of which is deployed under the protection of East Ladakh.  But this time only four times the troops have been deployed in East Ladakh only.  Given China's stand, the border dispute is not likely to be resolved soon, so this deployment can be stretched till winter.  It will be very difficult to keep these soldiers stationed in winter when the temperature falls below zero to 50 degrees.

The Air Force carried out large-scale operations with tanks, armored vehicles, ammunition and troops to Ladakh as the skirmishes with China began in May.  But now a new operation is being prepared in which so far the largest airlift will be carried out.
