Tinsukia

Tinsukia (95.353E 27.483N) was a rail junction in the Assam region of India. The airstrip at nearby Dinjan (95.273E 27.538N) became the center of a great airfield complex for the "Hump" airlift, supplied with fuel by 6" (15.2 cm) pipelines from Chittagong and Calcutta. Tinsukia would have been the second phase objective for U-Go had the Japanese succeeded in taking Imphal, and the airfields were occasionally raided by the Japanese from December 1943 to March 1944 in support of U-Go. These raids ceased with the fall of Myitkyina, from which the raids were launched.
