Beijing Evening News reported on August 23 as the arms are mine expansion in India growing, the Indian military tone of some people more and more hard. According to the United States, "Defense News" reported on August 11, Indian Air Force has bases near the border with India to deploy a SU-30MKI fighter squadrons utility. Indian Air Force officials said the fighters can carry nuclear weapons, aerial refueling, it can into the Chinese hinterland. However, compared to China and India's integrated military strength, "Su -30 into the Chinese hinterland," such tactics actually very difficult for China to succeed.
Su -30 deployed against China
United States, "Defense News" reports that Su -30 fighter squadrons will be deployed in India's northeastern Assam's Tezpur Air Force Base. Indian Air Force said a senior official further said that close to another base in the border area - chabua Air Force Base is also being upgraded to accommodate the Sukhoi fighter jets, transport aircraft and even medium-sized multi-purpose fighter. He said that medium-sized multi-purpose fighter would be in close proximity to China's northeast and northwest Pakistan near the patrol.
Reported that India's move to strengthen defense capabilities against China. To further show that Su -30 deterrent capability, the Indian Air Force officials also deliberately, in support of the air tanker, carrying nuclear weapons, Soviet -30 fully into the Chinese hinterland.
Substantial funding in support of the Indian Air Force advanced fighter force is expanding.

The Indian claim to rely on Soviet -30 nuclear deterrence against China is not all boast. Indian Air Force Su -30 on its own equipment to bring the fuel can fly nearly 4.5 hours, a maximum range of 5,000 kilometers. If there is accompanying tanker protection can be further expanded its range to 8,000 kilometers. In addition, double cabin design with Su -30, two long-haul flight, the pilot can turn to drive, keeping physically. Just from the technical point of view, the Indian Air Force Su -30 fleet does have the ability to launch long-range nuclear attack.
Rising long-range strike capability
Measure of the strength of Air Force long-range strike capability, the number of aerial refueling and airborne cruise missiles are two important indicators of performance. At present, the Indian Air Force has been equipped with six Russian-made Il -78 type of air refueling, which can effectively extend the range of fighter combat.
Indian Air Force has recently frequently with the United States, France and veteran Air Force held joint exercises power, aerial tankers Il -78 accompany many Western air force Su -30 fighter competing against. These preliminary exercises with the Indian Air Force in aerial refueling capabilities unfamiliar airspace.
Indian Air Force fighter aircraft be equipped with special attention for the advanced cruise missiles to boost its long-range precision strike capability. Indian military sources had "Han and Defense Review," said the Indian Air Force plans to Tezpur, chabua Air Force Base in the deployment of a squadron of Su -30 fighter.
"Han and defense review" analysis said that if the Indian Air Force Su -30 fighter with a "Brahmos" cruise missile from the air near the Sino-Indian border bases, its range can cover Kunming, Chengdu, Chongqing, Nanning, Guilin, Lanzhou, to attack the Chinese in Yunnan, Qinghai and second-line airport. "BrahMos" missile strike distance of more than 290 kilometers, 10 meters in height to a maximum speed of Mach 2.8 targets on the ground to combat, is extremely difficult to intercept.
In addition to joint development with Russia, "BrahMos" missile, India is actively developing a service called "fearless" long-range cruise missiles onboard.
According to the U.S., "Aviation Week" had revealed that Indian officials said the "fearless" The missiles will reach 800 to 1000 km, a range of "BrahMos" of three. Article pointed out sharply, "mount the missile will be a long-range Sukhoi fighter combat platforms, and have strategies to combat potential."
Clearly, India is working to build its own space-based strategic combat force, which is an important part of its existing fleet of Su-30MKI multi-purpose fighter aircraft equipped with advanced long-range cruise missiles.
