Really ... could add a few hand-made markings in the map?The upper map shows all currently usable airfields along the border.
The lower map, is correct if going by claimed areas, however, is wrong if going by controlled area. The eastern orange part is entirely under Indian control.
The limitation vis-a-vis the mentioned airfields is not about their quantity, but the fact that they are at a considerably high altitude, almost all over 10,000ft. This reduces the combat load an aircraft would be able to carry.
However, this fact has been beaten to death by the Indian side while citing operational disadvantages to plaaf, while totally ignoring the fact that adding 25-30% of the length of the runway(entirely possible due to favourable terrain) will completely counteract the problem( except probably for tire wear due to higher landing, takeoff speeds)
I know, but point is the three eastern bases mentioned in the Indian map are entirely unknown to me. Do you know them?
I simply don't know these three
