India Upgrades Air Force Capabilities and Expands Army Base in Northeast

The Indian Air Force is upgrading its capabilities in the northeastern region of the country by revamping eight advanced landing grounds and improving major airfields to enable them to receive more modern aircraft. The upgrade is part of the Modernization of Air Field Infrastructure project. The primary threat in eastern India is from China. A year ago Prime Minister Singh visited Arunachal Pradesh State in eastern India, which borders China and which China claims as "southern Tibet." Singh also announced upgrades to army facilities there, plus the basing of 50,000 to 60,000 additional soldiers in two army divisions.
