It was told that though China have got 1700 aircraft but most of their airfields were on Russian or eastern coast side due to which it was difficult for China to make any solid air attack on India. It was informed that Air campaign against India was slightly difficult as they do not have enough airfields in Tibet.The experts said that PLAF suffers limitation against IAF adding that J-20’stealth aircraft was an asset for Chinese but Rafale aircrafts would be a big asset for India. They said that India has to maintain technological lead against the PLAF to safeguard its airspace in better manner. They said that India was far better equipped to combat the PLAF but this needs to be maintained in future.
