Risky to park them (8 out of 12 on order) in close proximity like that. A preemptive strike or terrorist attack could deal a massive blow to the IN.

^^ Indeed

That is how US aircraft at Pearl Harbour were destroyed via sympathetic detonation. And we had a similar case in Kalaikunda where a MiG-27 crashed into a bunch of parked MiG-27s.

This seems to be a publicity shot, and INS Rajali at Arakonnam is a large WW2 base to support operations against Japanese in Arakan/Burma/Singapore, and has ample dispersals and hardened shelters.

Even our UAV base - INS Parandu - was built by the Maharaja of Ramnad and later expanded by the British in WW2.

Camouflage to confuse with civil airlines. Also, this aircraft may be converted from a civil plane.

Unique visitor -- Israeli Air Force 707 with refueling probe from Mumbai to Australia.. I never knew that refueling tankers have full passenger aircraft like windows.

It is a new one. The first six had serial numbers ranging from KC-3801 to KC 3806.

Is there a picture of KC-3807? Then this one (KC-3808) will be the second one from the second batch. I believe one additional C-130 was purchased to replace the one that crashed. Then there is another one - from the first batch - that damaged its wing. I do not know if that has been made air worthy again.
