China also displayed pictures of fighters Chengdu J-10 Vigorous Dragon multirole fighters and Shenyang J-11 fighters in order to give a message. Some jets took part in the combat exercise which was organized in Tibet.
Chinese military expert Song Zhongping said to express.co.uk that the deployment of more high-tech jets was due to “border tensions with no resolution in sight”.
He further said that, “The upgrade is urgent because in China’s western region, relations with India have been strained due to the border tensions, with no resolution in sight.
“India is gearing up already, so it’s necessary for China to prepare for a possible military confrontation. And in these mountainous areas, superiority in the air is of utmost importance.
“Strengthening the 3.5-generation fighter jets or even stationing more advanced fighters has been urgent for the People’s Liberation Army.”
A retired Indian air force marshal, M Matheswaran said that it’s not India threatening China, even China is threatening India and India doesn’t has the force size to threaten China at the moment.
India and China were engaged in a standoff for almost 70 days which ended with both governments disengaging their troops and pulling them back.
