Indian Air Force (IAF) has moved the Sukhoi-30MKI, Mirage 2000 and Jaguar fighter aircraft fleet to advanced positions.

Days after Chinese troopers killed 20 Indian soldiers at Galwan Valley in Ladakh, military chopper and fighter jet activity were reportedly seen in Leh area of the union territory on Friday.

According to a news agency report, the Indian Air Force (IAF) has moved the Sukhoi-30MKI, Mirage 2000 and Jaguar fighter aircraft fleet to advanced positions where they can fly in at a very short notice to carry out operations.

For providing air support to the Indian Army troops in the eastern Ladakh sector, the American Apache attack helicopters have been deployed in the close vicinity of the areas where operations by the ground troops are taking place at the moment.

The Chinooks helicopters have also been deployed in and around the Leh airbase to provide the capability of rapid troops transportation and inter-valley troop transfer, in case such a situation emerges there.

The Mi-17V5 medium-lift choppers are also playing an active role in the area in troops and material transportation there.
