Indian media released material, which states, that with the use of modern air defense systems (MLP) China has an advantage at the border with India. In an article in the Hindustan Times, the author writes about, that the Chinese armed forces have deployed S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile systems, delivered from Russia, in the south of Tibet.
Indian press states, that the Chinese troops are able to track the flights of the Indian Air Force in the border areas.
Recall, that earlier on "Military Review" there was material, which told about an interview with an Indian military pilot, piloting a MiG-29 fighter. Indian pilot announced full readiness of equipment and personnel for the winter period of patrolling in the Ladakh region. It is a disputed region on the borders of India and China, to which significant forces and means of two armies of nuclear powers have recently been pulled together.
In the Indian press:
We need to seek from Russia to accelerate the supply of previously contracted S-400 air defense systems, to restore parity with China. Due to the pandemic, shipments may be delayed, but India cannot be allowed to do so, because this cannot but affect our security.
Earlier, Washington dissuaded India from acquiring the S-400 from Russia and even threatened to impose sanctions from the CAATSA package. However, after numerous negotiations and the signing of Indian-American military-technical contracts, American pressure has somewhat eased..
