IAF Chinook Flew Over DBO After PLA Deployment At Aksai Chin

Ladakh 09 Aug 2020 : Indian Air Force Chinook helicopters flew at night 16,000 feet from Doulet Beg Oldi, near the Karakoram Pass, following the deployment and road construction activity of the area beyond the actual border line of the People's Liberation Army of China.

According to official sources, at the Divisional Commander level meeting at Ainchai Chin-occupied Tinweinden (TWD), the Indian Army had sought to reduce the temperature in the DBO sector with permission to patrol the Depsang plague.  The DBO dialogue differs from military commanders operating on the Chushul-Moldo region with the specific task of disbanding and de-escalation of troops at four friction points.

The decision to fly the Chinook at the DBO advance landing ground at night was taken to test the Indian Army's capability of rapid mobilization of special forces and infantry vehicles when the situation deteriorated in the sub-region North Zone.

A senior commander said, "While the Apache attack helicopters are patrolling the Chushul area, the US-ready Chinook flew over the DBO to test their nighttime fighting capabilities. We already had T-90 tanks and  Artillery guns have been deployed. The US-built Chinook has a proven record of night flying in Afghan mountainous areas and is used by special air forces for rapid military retaliation.
