    Oops my bad, but even rest of the pics are quite good.
    One of my relative (just retired from IAF) told me that they have instructions as not to use camera at critical setups inside IAF bases and it might be the reason that we can't find HAS in open media..

    Looks like Mirage 2000 does have full base infrastructure compared to the Russian ones. May be it have something to do with maintenance methodology. How Russian is rigid and french is not. :hmm:

    To be clear i was referring to base infra like the Chinese ones that i posted (shelter for all planes not only for those are under repair). Also many of the picture above looks like are from BRD under maintenance command not operational base.

    Anyways, IAF also have number of shelters but pics are not available in open media due to some kind of security concerns.

    as an example ,I can find portion of Shelters at Pathankot Air Base (also have more infra). Even it is an open source but will not post for other bases.

    Even PLAAF put their fighters under open sky..

    but I completely agreed that IAF have lot of infra but not sufficient to put all IAF aircrafts inside.

    Maybe because HTFE-25 will be completely developed and tested within first quarter of 2018 and HTFE-40 which is more suitable for Jaguar will be ready by than..

    The planned D3 upgrade is not on schedule... The engine refit probable candidates are not yet ready... The indigenous candidate needs couple of years or more as well..

    The roles envisioned for such D3s and D2 are also under review..

    Their operational links, codes and communication medium are now getting configured for Rafale.. Work for the same has been initiated in all forward bases.

    Thus wait out for some time... the Jags may get relegated to limited roles and may be there for just numbers and emergency purposes..

    Jaguars did FLY Half Way around the Globe to ALASKA for RED FLAG
    with their Current Engine ; Crossing the Atlantic Ocean

    So here in a Combat Situation they have to Only Fly some 800 Km and Back
