In case of a war with China, do we invade Nepal immediately?

    We need our troops positioned at the northern border of Nepal and China in offensive positions right? If we dont do it, China will.

    Will not be worth it. It well slow us down in our defence as well will spend more time fighting the Nepalis.

    We should not fight the Nepalis. That's a good point, if China invades first then we can help Nepal chase them out and stay at their northern border until required. But is that risk worth taking?

    China invading Nepal would be a stupid move on their part, as it would only stretch their resources and cause them to be bogged down. We can indirectly support the Nepalis while focusing on the critical theatre, which will likely be Gilgit-Baltistan/Aksai Chin.

    Cuf off the narrow corridor that connects the NE to India proper.

    At the same time, attack New Delhi with a rain of conventional rockets (in their hundreds of thousands) launched from the Nanda Devi area that's a mere 200km away from the Indian capital.

    In 1962, the PLA took more than a month to overrun a poorly armed and commanded 4 Corps.
    Now it will be impossible for the PLA.

    We would love to see you stock pile the "hundreds of thousands" of launchers near Nanda Devi :rofl:

    BTW, that traffic jam of launchers would be easy pickings for the IAF birds.

    I hear only excuses here. Could you have done the same in 62? Or even today for that matter? If not, then the entire discussion is pointless. Neither side could hope to win. So let us leave it at that.

    But China has been doing these double standard fip flops or to say "running parallel policies in proxy" with both US and India.
    I think they will open front at NE to dilute our proactive and preventive defense at Ladakh.
    Ultimate goal for China is to ensure enough meat around their vital highway that goes through China occupied Kashmir and gain upper hand on ground positions.
    I don't know where Nepal figues in all this.

    I don't think Aski Chin is as important to china anymore. During Nehru time Aski Chin was required for access to Tibet. Now this area is not so important for them. China wants the north east now. Aski Chin for Arunachal was the bargain chip with Nehru. Today the reverse is true. China is territoriality ambitious and ravenously expansionist. You can see it has trouble with all it's neighbors.

    For the other questions on the thread:
    If all other routes like the Indian chicken neck to the NE is broken we will still run through Bangladesh to get there. Besides the Chicken neck is one of the most heavily protected China-India borders. It's not going to happen. It's too easy for Chinese to plan and too easy a plan for India not to account for it and neutralize it.

    Nepal on the other hand might be a soft underbelly. The Chinese may pour into Nepal and try to move into UP and Delhi. Our defense should be at the Nepal borders. It's not a very high mountain battle in such a case and we can push them back into Nepal as opposed to trying to meet them in the High mountains with another mountain division. We won't have enough mountain divisions. Nepal will also resist the Chinese "invasion".

    To original poster: Last but not the least we don't invade countries. Change your mindset.
