India has deployed a surface-to-air missile defense system in eastern Ladakh in view of the increasing movement of Chinese fighter jets and helicopters on the LAC (Line of Actual Control). The system includes the Akash missile which is capable of blasting Chinese planes in a blink of an eye. Along with this, large-scale military equipment is being transported across the border. Three divisions of the army have been increased there. All this preparation is being done to give a befitting reply to China in the event of confrontation.
Keeping in view the current situation, air defense systems of both Army and Air Force have been deployed in East Ladakh. In the last few weeks, China has acquired state-of-the-art fighter aircraft like Sukhoi-30. These and other bombers are currently deployed by China somewhere behind the border but are often seen cruising on LAC.

Chinese helicopters hover over all colliding points of the LAC. Daulat Beg Oldi, the Chinese aircraft are constantly on view of the Petrol Point 14, Patrol Point 15, Patrol Point 17 and Patrol Point 17A of the Galvan Valley. As a cut, the Akash missile included in the air defense system deployed by India can destroy aircraft, helicopters or drones in a few seconds. Several changes have also been made to this system for deployment at high altitude. To strengthen the Indian front, the S-30MKI fighter aircraft can be fully equipped with the adjoining air base and can reach here in a few minutes. India has made its best preparations for monitoring the enemy. Now no Chinese aircraft can pass through it without being caught.
