NEW DELHI, Sep. 25 (APP) Indian Air Force has planned to deploy two Su-30MKI squadrons in Punjab against Pakistan by 2011.Talking to newsmen here Friday, Western Air Command (WAC) chief Air Marshal N A K Browne said two units of Mi-171V medium lift helicopters will also be inducted in Rajasthan and occupied Kashmir besides operating indigenous Shakti-engine-fitted Dhruv Advanced Light Helicopters and 10 HAL-engine-fitted Cheetal helicopters in high altitude areas of Kashmir, including Siachen.

Browne further said the IAF has recently issued tenders for purchase of Light Utility Helicopters, which will also be inducted in Siachen in the future.

Besides this, he said the IAF has planned to improve its air defence units along all over Punjab (against Pakistan) and occupied Kashmir.

“All these are in tune with our focus to improve all- round offensive and air defence capability, operational infrastructure, and modernisation plans,” Browne said.

Browne said IAF has planned to install Special Mountain and light-weight radars along the 667-km border with China in Ladakh.

“The Air Force is keenly examining the option of special type of radars, which we call the mountain radars and we are also looking at Low Level Light Weight Radars (LLLWR). So there is a definite plan,” Air Marshal N A K Browne said.

However, he said the radars will be put in place in the next four to five years.

The IAF had already given contracts for 19 of LLLWRs and that the WAC itself had some of these. “More are in the pipeline. They are coming starting from next year itself,” he said adding two indigenously developed Rohini radars have already been placed on Actual Line of Control (LAC).

“We do need to talk to everybody...every one of our neighbours and at the same time keep our gun powers dry. We should maintain our preparedness at the highest levels,” media reports quoting Browne said.

When asked his reaction on the remarks of IAF chief Air Chief Marshal P V Naik that India’s Air Force fleet was just one-third of China’s, Browne said the IAF was extremely well-balanced on all fronts such as numbers, technology, modern platforms and equipment.
