In the West, China announced the transfer of J-20 fighters closer to the borders of India

In the foreign press, there were statements that the latest Chinese J-20 fighters appeared near the Sino-Indian border.


These publications caused understandable excitement due to the fact that some time ago there was a clash between the military personnel of the two countries on the border between India and China. And both countries, "flexing their muscles" for some time, decided to withdraw the main forces and means away from the border so as not to aggravate the situation. Against this background, India decided (this was recently reported by VO in one of its materials) not to transfer the received French-made Rafale fighters to the Ladakh region.

For obvious reasons, the information that China has moved J-20 closer to the Indian border in India caused a wide response.
Information that the PLA Air Force's new generation fighters were deployed to the Hotan airfield in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region of China - about 300 km from the border with India, appeared, in particular, in the western magazine Forbes. The publication referred to data from satellites.

The Chinese media responded to this kind of publication. It was noted that the airfield is located about 350 km from the border, and the appearance of the latest aircraft there does not pose any threat to India.

In the Global Times, citing military expert Fu Qianshao, who specializes in combat aviation, an article was published, which speaks of "the formidable power of the J-20 and their ability to cover many areas of Central and South Asia from the Hotan airfield." At the same time, the Chinese expert says the following:

With all this, the capabilities of the J-20 fighters cannot be overestimated.

According to the expert, China is a large country, and airplanes are placed in different regions.

Fu Qianshao says that the tension on the border with India is subsiding, and therefore the appearance of publications in foreign media that aggravate the situation has its own motives.

Against this background, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian noted that China "is ready to cooperate with India to strengthen mutual trust."

    Even so, why not? Recently, the Indians said that the newest planes were airlifted there than the Chinese are worse. An adequate answer and nothing more.

      Nothing of the kind has been announced in India.

          Of course give. - A link to the Indian media, which says that "the newest aircraft there threw".
          The most zealous Indian media often wrote that "it is imperative to transfer Rafali to Ladakh." But that Rafali has already been transferred there ... I have not met

              A few nuances: firstly, I would still like to see the full link to the article (especially to the original source). Secondly, it is completely incomprehensible about what "newest aircraft", "airlifted to the borders of China", on June 20, we are talking, if the same "Rafali" flew to India itself only on July 29.

    The rhetoric is not at all like the US rhetoric towards China.

    The loss of one such for the Chinese will be a tub of icy water, so the planes may be near the border, but their participation in battles will be unlikely. This is an aviafitish of the Chinese, the main thing is its presence in one place or another.

    I don’t understand one thing ... Well, it’s clear that it’s profitable for someone to "maintain" this conflict smoldering every time. But why should you be so interested in any information? I think that in India someone is simply solving their own "selfish" problems. First, they say that the Indian Air Force leadership did not deploy Rafali in this region, which SIGNIFICANTLY weakened the defenses, but now information about new Chinese fighters ...

    India did not place its fighters next to China, having driven them to an airfield located 500 km from the Chinese border, and China placed it nearby, 350 km from the Indian border.
    Interesting news is served.
