China-India border dispute: PLA bombers pictured close to troubled region

Images released by Central Theatre Command show at least three Xian H-6 bombers at base thought to be in Tibet.

Western Theatre Command says its troops took part in a live-fire air-defence exercise in a ‘northwestern desert’, believed to be in Xinjiang.

China appears to have deployed strategic bombers close to its border with India amid ongoing skirmishes between the two countries.
In photographs published on Tuesday on an official social media account of the People’s Liberation Army’s Central Theatre Command, at least three Xian H-6 bombers and a Xian Y-20 airlifter were shown at an airfield thought to be in the Tibet autonomous region.

The captions accompanying the images on Weibo – China’s Twitter-like platform – said ground crews had been stationed at a “high-altitude” base on a “plateau” – a description normally associated with Tibet.
They had been tasked with maintaining and refuelling the aircraft, the captions said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You generally don't put jet fighter pilots or soldiers on such a level of high alert, unless you mean to deploy them, and quickly.
