    Antony says India will match Chinese military infra buildup

    Nov 15, 2011

    New Delhi: Expressing concern over Chinese military infrastructure buildup, Defence Minister AK Antony today said India was working to match it to protect the country’s territory and build an effective deterrence.

    “China is expanding its military capabilities and their infrastructure in the border area is also increasing substantially and we are concerned about that,” he said.

    The Minister made these remarks when asked about India’s response to Chinese military modernization in the Eastern and Northern sectors.

    India has been deploying its frontline fighter aircraft Sukhoi-30 MKIs on its airbases along the Chinese border.

    “We have been improving our infrastructure and military capabilities in the eastern sector. We are strengthening our military capability and infrastructure not for confrontation, but to protect our territory and also to build an effective deterrence…so that we can protect every inch of Indian territory,” Antony said.

    India has been deploying its frontline fighter aircraft Sukhoi-30 MKIs on its airbases along the Chinese border in the North-East and has raised two Mountain Divisions there.

    Ultra light howitzers and tanks under new armoured formations are also planned to be deployed in the region.

    Asked about the existing defence ties with China, Antony said the Defence Secretary-level talks between the two sides will be held next year.

    “Defence exchanges with China are again resuming. I hope the defence dialogue (between the two nations) at the Defence Secretary-level will again resume next years,” Antony told reporters on the sidelines of Fifth South Asia Conference here.

    India and China will hold the Annual Defence Dialogue (ADD) in January next year during which the two sides are expected to discuss resumption of their joint army exercise and the pending border issues between them.

    China's Increasing Military Clout in Tibet


    China is raising her strategic oil reserves from 30 days to 100 days and that will give her a greater sustenance to wage war!

    As per military analysis China has the capability to deploy and sustain 34 divisions over a month along the Line of Actual Control.

    China can do so by mustering troops from the Chegdu and Lanzou Military Region without having to carry out stocking or dumping in advance.

    China has a distinct advantage over India when viewed against India's 09 Divisions along the Northern borders.

    As a major upgrade, China is doing/done the following in Tibet and Xinjiang:

    1. Connection with all major counties in Tibet with border roads completed. Road network increased from 51,000 kms in 2008 to 58,000 kms in 2010. Plan to increase black topped roads by another 70,000 kms is on the anvil.

    2. Extension of Qinghai - Tibet Railway from Golmund to Lhasa and thereon to Shiagatse (close to Sikkim). Rail connectivity is planned to link Katmandu in Nepal, Myanmar, Bhutan , Pakistan and Central Asian Republics.

    3. Eleven new rails lines are on the anvil for Tibet and Xinjiang for rapid deployment of the PLA.

    4. 18 air bases in Tibet and Xinjiang have the capability to put India under the range of Sukhoi 27.

    The infrastructure development along with building of logistic hubs at a rapid pace is worth note since it is far in excess of the requirement for the local population. It is a known fact that the PLA has built tunnels for storage of military hardware.

    The fact that Pakistan is China's all weather friend and supplies military hardware to include J 17 is of serious concern to India. It maybe recalled that China has 1000 troops in POK to upgrade the Karakorum Highway and fast pace the link to Gwadar, Karachi and Bin Qassim. This will give 'strategic depth' ( at term not quite what it means in the military sense, but more in the political realm) as also permit China to control the Persian Gulf.

    China's Dong Fang Electric Supply Corporation and the Pakistan Railways have signed the feasibility study contract on a Havelian - Khunjerab Pass rail link.

    India's current response is 9 Infantry Division.

    Road connectivity still poor.

    Logistics hubs not adequate.

    However, the population very pro India.

    Military upgradation in the troop level, light and yet effective artillery, better communications, effective air force response in infrastructure and assets are underway.

    Can China really be able to threaten India in a conventional war?

    Extra troops along China border will raise tensions, harm India's interests: Chinese

    Only chinese have the right to add troops, add fighter jets, Missiles, make roads, even position artillery. Our Lungi No.2 Antony should take steps to improve our defence capability there and should not think of such idiotic remark by Chinese :mad2:

    Not having troops will mean loss of land. We are better off raising tensions.

    And what crystal ball are they gazing at? Indian economy is slowing down and not able to afford latest stuff? Just recently the Chinese themselves said that they are looking at more modest growths.

    Chinese seem to have acces to the the best opium via Gilgit that they have encroached into.

    "You create aggressors and invite aggression simply by remaining weak"........ Which country in the world has this kind of experience better than India. India always treated others with respect and trust but they shamelessly breached the trust and invaded it, looted it!!....... And if India is now strengthening its defense capabilities why should China be worried? It seems Chinese had some evil designs for India which is becoming hard with India's strengthening defense capabilities

    Before asking /commenting, China should think what they are doing? Why the hell they increased solders in India border. Why they put wrong MAP? what they want to prove? Why they build Train track, solders bunkers near border? why they are pushing their people to come Arunachol n build houses n all... China should think about themselves before asking India..... If this time War happen then we will take out Tibet out of chian... Mind it .

    Surest way to develop good friendship with china are as follows:
    1. Deploy more fire power in the border areas.
    2. Develop and deploy 5000 - 10000 KM range missiles which can reach Beijing, Shanghai, Guangdong, Hong Kong and many more chinese cities.
    3. Develop good relationship with South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, Vietnam, Australia, Burma, Russia, Iran and Tibet.
    4. Have few submarines in South East Asia
    5. Develop more manufacturing base and take share of chinese market.
    6. Export arms to all the neighbours mentioned earlier.
    7. Use Indian influence in Africa to get more oil fields, mining bases and industrial markets.

    This and many other measures will really develop good relationship with china as china only understands one language i.e. language of force and language of strength.

    They will increase incursions and very good chances of making a small conflict just like blunders they made during 1967..

    sarcasm BY TOI reader

    We Chinese ask you Indian why you raise army to fight us? We no want to fight you. We only want to take Arunachal and Ladakh which belong to China, as its say in our Ancient Ancestral Mao book written long long ago more than 15 years ago.

    We also only want some other small parts of Indian country like Kashmir Sikkim, etc. But we no want fight with you Indian. We Chinese peaceful people. So we only ask you to give us your land peacefully. If you Indians raise army, then we have to fight you to take it and then it not going to be very peaceful for us Chinese. This is also no good for China image as peaceful leader in world. You Indian just give China your land and you just walk away peacefully. Also take all your Indian people who live there with you, because otherwise we have to shoot them to make houses for Chinese; And then it not be peaceful for Chinese, because loud gun noise scare our children, and then they no make Nike shoes properly.

    But if you raise big army on border, then you must keep all you army in very small area so we can use "precision" missile to finish them all quickly. Our analysts spent many months and come with calculation that if your army not in small area, then for 140,000 men China need 140,000 missiles. This no good for peace (And we need lot of money for that many missile). So we demand you Indian keep army as 1000 men per sq meter (maybe you ask them to stand on each other shoulder), so we use only 140 missiles and finish war peacefully

    :pound: :pound: :pound: :lol:
