The Chinese Air Force (also known as the People’s Liberation Army Air Force – PLAAF) is the third major air force in the world, with a record of almost 2,200 combat aircraft. Against this, the Indian Air Force has a strength of about 860 combat aircraft. The Chinese Air Force cannot organize all these aircraft against India. In a exactly researched study, the author claims that PLAAF will have serious limitations in achieving air advantage against the IAF. The confines of airfield substructure and land in Tibet severely restrict PLAAF’s competences to transmit out a continued air campaign against India. The author deliberates the second artillery’s competences and says that China’s airborne and cruise missiles will be a main threat to India, but they cannot debilitate us.
