India deploys air defence systems in eastern Ladakh

Jun 28, 2020 11:43 IST

India has deployed its air defence weapon systems in eastern Ladakh as tensions with China rose sharply in the sensitive sector, the Hindustan Times has reported quoting people in the know. The air defence weapons in the Indian military arsenal include the indigenous Akash, the Israeli SpyDer and Soviet-origin Pechora and OSA-AK systems. Air defence systems can engage targets such as fighter jets, helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles. Both India and China have significantly reinforced their deployments along the LAC.
