The capabilities of newly acquired Chinooks and Apaches are also being utilised. “The Chinooks are supplying men and material to the border areas on a daily basis while the Apaches would come into the picture in a big way if the two sides get engaged in a tank battle in the high altitude wide valleys of the Indus and other rivers in the Eastern Ladakh sector,” the official said.

The Leh airfield can be seen with the IAF’s Russian-origin Ilyushin-76s and US-origin C-17s, C-130J Super Hercules aircraft supplying rations in the forward locations around the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

The Indian Army is constantly updating the Air Force of the actual position on the ground and both the forces have planned joint operations in case the situation deteriorates further, said the report.
