    Frontier Infrastructure: Loopholes, Scenarios, Contingencies, Plans, Programmes, and Solutions

    This thread is for discussing the Western and Eastern Sectors of the Indo-Tibetan Border and LAC, as well as the LAC with PoK.

    Kindly discuss the weaknesses, loopholes, and India's current scenario about troop movement. We must also discuss weapons systems that can be used specifically in these regions, in case of a future war, which could be either defensive, or if we start a campaign to capture more territory to gain diplomatic leverage.

    You are encouraged to post anecdotal evidence of similar events in the past in any part of the world, and what India can learn from this.

    Finally, we should also discuss how India can reach a position of strength, like PRC has, that it is able to afford belligerent actions.

    I will be editing this post, again and again, as we get more information about specific locations on the LAC.

    @pmaitra; I was going to open the same thread with title , 'PLA out from Indian territory; future strategies for India' but you were quick.

    My answer to your post, I directed a post at Ray Sir.

    We must develop and maintain few more frontiers at LAC like we are at Siachin. DOB will be more better with air strip which should be now accommodating all types of military planes/jets.

    ITBP is acting like BSF in those area, No harm there..

    In War they will automatically work with Army..

    Not all types, at least now. Take for example the Ilyushin-76; in those heights it will need 3 km of runway. DBO won't support that. The only place long enough for this is the Chusul airfield.

    What is needed there is a Chain of sophisticated all weather Bunkers, With enough surveillance ( Optical as well as Radar ) and enough defensive capabilities and communications..

    Also need helipads near these posts, Hili-pads design to land Light class Helos..

    All these requirements for now..

    The current guiding principle for India-China border dispute is the 2005 agreement.
    Pasting here the agreement as it appeared in THE HINDU.
    We can discuss the salient points and debate whether it is biased.
