Ever since tensions have started between India and China on the Ladakh border, the Chinese Army has been keeping an eye on the area of ​​Pangong Lake. The People’s Liberation Army Ground Force (PLAGF) of the Chinese Army is eyeing water through high speed patrolling craft, in which Type 305, Type 928D boats are being used.

But recent satellite photos show that China is now beginning to know the depth of Pangong Tso. Now for this, the world’s latest technology is being used by China, which is used for anti-submarine warfare.

On 31 July, India Today’s OSINT team had informed that China has deployed 13 boats between Finger 4 to Finger 8. Finger 4 to two and a half km At a distance of about eight new boats were raised near Finger 5. But now the latest situation has come out, it shows a trend that has not been seen before.

The Air Force of the Chinese Army PLA is now monitoring the underwater activity in Pangong Tso. Special type of aircraft is being used for this, in which a magnetic anomaly detector (MAD boom) is installed. These include aircraft such as the Y-8 GX6 and Shanxi Y-8 transporter’s Gaoxin-6 or High New 6 variant, which are used by the Chinese Navy for submarine warfare with anti-surface.


These devices can easily detect submarines hidden under water, but apart from this they are also expert in identifying the minerals and soil present in the water. Now similar aircraft are seen in satellite image in Hotan, Korla and Wadoon.


New satellite images surfaced from Wadoon Airport show that a Y-8 GX6 was stationed there on 24 August. This aircraft has a smaller MAD boom than the older version. The condition of the aircraft, it is known that it is still in trial. At the same time, about four more such aircraft are deployed at the Xian-Yanlian Airbase.


Ever since the Doklam dispute, China has increased its air force activity along the Indo-Tibet border. This surveillance system has been increased in the last three years. China is constantly tracking Indians through UAVs, which it has deployed in areas such as Lhasa, Hutan, Wudoon, Aksu.

China recently tested the Winglong 2 UAV, which works at the level of weather and communication. Its testing was first done at Uxatal Airbase, so that it could be used against India. China is also tracking the Indian Navy’s P8I surveillance aircraft and is monitoring underwater activity through it. In such a situation, India will still have to keep an eye on every move of China.
