Given the ongoing tension with China, the Indian Air Force informed officials that Exercise Pralay will include all of its critical air facilities in the northeast, including freshly relocated drone units. During the exercise, several Air Force combat assets, including fighter jets Su-30 and Rafale, as well as transport and other aircraft, would be active.

In recent months, the IAF has undertaken a similar command-level simulation. The entire northeast air space along the China border is under the control of the Indian Air Force’s Eastern Command in Shillong, which dispatches fighters on a regular basis to intercept Chinese aircraft that attempt to fly too close to the Line of Actual Control (LAC) or move in the direction of Indian installations there.

The next exercise will also coincide with the deployment and activation of the Indian Air Force’s S-400 air defence squadron in the region, which is capable of intercepting any hostile missile or aircraft from up to 400 kilometres away.

The Indian Air Force recently transferred a squadron of drones from other locations in the northeast to strengthen its capabilities to track enemy activity throughout the Sikkim and Siliguri Corridor sectors. According to officials, Chinese actions in the Doklam region have also escalated, and they are being closely observed by Indian security personnel.

A clash between Indian and Chinese troops in the Doklam region in 2017 was resolved through diplomatic talks between the two governments.
