SURVEILLANCE FOOTAGE REVEALS J-20 STEALTH FIGHTERS AT SHIGATSE AIR BASE NEAR INDIAN BORDER

Deployment of J-20 Stealth
Fighters, Shigatse, China.


Analysis of imagery collected over Shigatse
Air Base in China shows the deployment of
six likely J-20 stealth fighter aircraft near the
Indian border.
Multiple images collected over the course
of the same day indicate these aircraft
arrived at the air base on 27 May 2024,
preceded by the arrival of a Y-20 transport
aircraft for the probable deployment of
ground crew and support equipment. The
J-20 aircraft are not known to be
permanently based at Shigatse and
deployments near the Indian border are a
rare occurrence.
In addition to the J-20 fighters, multiple J10 fighter aircraft and a KJ-500 early
warning and control aircraft that are
normally present at Shigatse are also
visible on the flight line.
