Re: India's Border Security with China and Pakistan-2020 - Part 2

As I expected, Chinis are building new airport/airbase/ALG. It is a matter of time, before they overcome the deficiency in PLAAF numbers. You just built more airbases. Even if you deploy 1 sqd each, you just build 30-40 airbase/airports. Very doable for the Chinis. https://twitter.com/detresfa_/sta...
