B. Raman in its September 2012 post hinted that China is capable of mounting helicopter based special forces operation to capture Tawang and Itanagar . Tawang is 30 kilometer from Thagla Ridge - the border and line of actual control at 18,000 feet and Itanagar is 100 kilometers from McMohan line. Since B Raman is an ex second most senior officer of RAW his opinions have to carry weight. What is the likelihood of this scenario. Can they humble India again like in 1962. Does Indian army is capable of preventing it. Or if the Chinese are stupid to carry it out, can the Indian army isolate and surround the fools and make them surrender, forcing a defeat on China. What would be required at Chinese disposal to mount such an operation. His hint is that the attack would not come from Tibet but elsewhere in China. How many troops and how many helicopter would be required to mount such an operation. What would be logistics issue to supply the troops in Tawang or Itanagar. Would Indian army welcome a move like this by China to force a defeat on them. It is an interesting new issue drummed up by Raman. Let the experts discuss it.
