Armed With Supplies For Troops, IAF’s jumbo C-17 Globemaster Lands In Leh

Amid the ongoing border standoff with China, Indian Air Force’s jumbo transport aircraft – the C-17 Globemaster – landed at the Leh airbase in Ladakh with supplies for troops deployed in inhospitable forward areas.

The jumbo transport aircraft is capable of carrying large combat equipment, troops and humanitarian aid across long distances in all weather conditions. Newswire ANI shared video of the video of the massive, sturdy C-17 Globemaster long-haul aircraft landing at the airstrip in the high-altitude region.

Since its induction into the Sky Lords Squadron in 2013, the sturdy C-17 fleet has been an integral part of IAF’s strategic and combat airlift capability.

Sorites by IL-76 and AN-32 transport along with Apache attack and Chinook heavy-lift choppers and MIG-29s were also carried out from the airbase.

“We’re ready and well-positioned to take on our adversaries. Our deployments in assessed areas are complete and the winter challenges are being addressed. We’ve suitably assessed the adversary and have necessary plans in place,” Flight Lieutenant Neha Singh told ANI.

IAF Chief Air Chief Marshal Rakesh Kumar Singh Bhadauria who addressed the 89th Raising Day of the IAF at Hindon Air Force Station recently had said, “In the recent stand-off on our northern frontiers, we deployed our combat assets at short notice to handle any eventuality and provided proactive support to all the requirements of deployment and sustenance for the Indian Army. We have clearly demonstrated our resolve, operational capability, and the will to effectively engage the adversary, should the need arise.”
