The situation has remained tense after the violent clashes between China and India in East Ladakh on 15 and 16 June in the Galvan Valley. @ZhongXN Twitter is managing reports that China has destroyed the Sukhoi-30 MKI Indian Air Force fighter aircraft in Tibet. The tweet, which was posted at 10:47 p.m. on October 3rd, also claimed that the PLA Air Force had shot down the dreaded Indian Air Force fighter Sukhoi SU-30 MKI in Tibet.
As PIB Fact Check studied this viral tweet, the reality of the downed combat aircraft Sukhoi SU-30 MKI was revealed by China. The PIB Fact Check confirms that no such incident happened.
Significantly, the two countries have so far held six rounds of talks to settle the ongoing border conflict between India and China on the Line of Actual Control LAC, but at the moment all meetings have been inconclusive. India deployed BrahMos, Nirbhay, and Akash missiles on the front in the center of the LAC escalation. BrahMos Sukhoi-30-MKI is poised to wreak havoc on China. India is now attacking Chinese airbases near the LAC. China has recently deployed long-range missiles in Tibet and Xinjiang.
The Sukhoi-30 MKI with the Indian Air Force is considered to be one of the strongest fighter aircraft. In 2000, an agreement was reached between India and Russia. India had its first Sukhoi-30 in 2002. It has a satellite navigation system, with the aid of which both night and day operations can be carried out. It can be refueled in the air itself, and it can kill the enemy by up to 3,000 kilometers.
BrahMos is the fastest supersonic cruise missile attack in the world, capable of reaching up to 500 km. BrahMos can be shot by the Sukhoi-30 MKI fighter jet. BrahMos can carry a warhead of 300 kg. Any Chinese airbase could be lost. A large number of BrahMos missiles were sent to the front.
