Fighter Su-30 India


Su-30 and MiG-29 fighters intercepted Chinese J-11 and J-16 fighters

The Su-30 and MiG-29 fighters forced the Chinese fighter pilots to retreat.

A few hours ago, high activity of Chinese J-11 and J-16 fighters was noticed on the border between India and China, which could be used to strike at the positions of the Indian military. Against this background, the Indian Air Force took to the skies its Su-30 and MiG-29 combat aircraft, which not only drove the Chinese fighters out of the contested airspace, but also forced the Chinese Air Force pilots to return to base, demonstrating clear air superiority.

According to the data available to the news agency, the flights were made from the Hotan airbase, which, according to the Indian military command, can be used to strike at the territory of the country. Nevertheless, the matter did not come to any direct clashes, although in recent weeks a rather tense situation has been observed in the region, since each of the sides concentrates its forces here.

It should be noted that in China they are rather wary of the Indian Su-30 and MiG-29 fighters, and this is probably why the Chinese Air Force pilots did not escalate.

According to some reports, the reason for the appearance of Chinese fighters in the disputed airspace on the border of China and India was the military exercises of the PLA,
