The Chinese military continues to build up combat capabilities of its aviation units in the areas bordering India.
A satellite image of the Lhasa Gonggar dual-use airport in the Tibet Autonomous Region shows work to modernize the facility with the placement of protective shelters for combat aircraft.
Recent satellite images show how the facilities at the airport are being upgraded for use of air force amid the India-China tussle at the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh. The standoff started early May and the deadlock continues.
After India inducted special delivery of Rafales at Ambala Air Force Station, China started additional deployment of H-6 bombers and J-20 stealth fighters along with Y-20 strategic transporters opposite India.
