New Delhi: Pakistan is moving its fighter aircraft at forward air base Skardu near Ladakh, said reports by the Intelligence agencies.

Intelligence agencies have spotted atleast three Pakistan Air Force transport aircraft C-130 bringing equipment to Skardu air base.

 

Pakistan is expected to deploy JF-17 fighter aircraft at Skardu air base. The Intelligence agencies are keeping a close watch on the activity at the air base. In the past, Pakistan has used the air base to support its Army operations on the border with India. JF-17 is now the backbone of the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) defence as the US has stopped sale of new F16 aircraft to Pakistan.

Chinese JF-17 is a single-engine fighter which can be used for ground attack and aircraft interception. However, unlike India’s top line aircraft Su-30, which can carry 8 beyond-visual-range (BVR) missiles, JF-17 can carry only four BVR missiles. Indian Air Force is already on high alert and has been conducting Combat Air Patrol over J&K.
