Shillong, Sept 13 (PTI) A full complement of the MKI variant of the Sukhoi-30 warplanes will be deployed at the frontline Tezpur air base in Assam by October.

Dismissing reports that infrastructure at the air base is inadequate to deploy the Su-30 MKIs, Air Officer Commanding-in-Chief of the Eastern Air Command Air Marshal S K Bhan said, “the upgradation work at the air base has been completed and a full complement of the fighter jets would be deployed at the base by October.”

“Su-30s have operated from the air base when the planes were formally inducted in the base on June 15,” Bhan told PTI.

Asked how many squadrons of the jets will be deployed in the north east, he said it depends on the IAF assessment.
