According to EurAsian Times, Chinese Air Force (PLAAF) training and experience shortcomings compared to that of Indian Air Force points to China’s significant disadvantage in air warfare. Recently PLAAF exercises with scenarios that were not previously scripted have found that Chinese pilots are excessively reliant upon ground control for tactical direction and combat capability.

Across its three China-facing commands, Indian Air Force has an estimated 270 fighters and 68 ground attack aircraft. In comparison, Chian deploys 157 fighters and a varied drones effectively. China has an estimated 20 GJ-1/WD-1K precision strike UAVs, 12 WD-1 ground attack and reconnaissance UAVs, 12 WD-1 precision strike UAVs, and 8 EA-03 reconnaissance and electronic warfare UAVs. In terms of air base logistics Indian Air Force also holds an advantage.

While Indian Air Force has a balanced tactical superiority in terms of training, experience, aircraft quality and drones, China primarily depends on ground command capabilities. In a border skirmish, Indian Air Force is flexible and can flex varied air muscle depending on the developing scenarios.
