I for one think we should only give/sell indigenously developed and manufactured system.
Their is no use of importing such systems and then giving or selling to Taiwan.

We can give mighty Mig-21Bis to Taiwan asap.

We can give 2+4 Apaches each from IA and IAF respectively.

We can give 500 howitzers.

We can give Sig riffles with OFB manufactured ammunition.

We can deploy ever repairing INS Vikramaditya in south china sea.

moreover, we can try to give Light tanks, Drones, tanker refueller, moral support, kadi ninda, bhartna etc etc....

Apart from humanitarian aid & moral support, I don't think we can help much.
The only country that can help militarily is Great Satan & that too is questionable.

whatever will happen in Taiwan will be on the similar lines of murica's UKR current strategy, their support will come from japan and south korea.
the role GoI will play will be similar to the ukraine.
so basically nothing sensational.

System we give/sell
  1. Akash SAM
  2. VL-SRSAM (once manufactured) will be good for point defense against PRC's CM and BM
  3. Brahmos CM
  4. Tactical BM like Parlay and its dertivatives
  5. Pinaka MRLS with Guided Rockets

^^^First let’s have enough weapons for the border please
We do have enough weapons on border.
Lets see if Agniveer program help relieve pressure on our defense budget but I suppose it will take atleast a decade to see some meaningful gains.
With growing of domestic MIC situation will improve overtime.

We will need to take an active role in defense of Taiwan.
The reason is simple after Taiwan the next number is of India.

We can't always seat on the sidelines.

No point giving the hard earned work to firangi slave states. Let’s first focus on India

it depends on what factors one is considering to arrive at this conclusion. the way i am seeing it.

- taiwan is a frontline state both for u.s and china
- taiwan unofficially comes under the protection of U.S
- taiwan protection has bipartisan support in washington D.C
- taiwan will get anything they ask for from U.S MIC, except nuclear weapons
- taiwan second layer defence come from U.S troops already deployed in Japan and SK
- taiwan is the frontline from U.S perspective, tibet border comes in our domain.
- there are dedicated U.S think tanks which look into aspects of taiwan.

in essence india's involvement will be viewed as intrusion in murican backyard. murican MIC will not allow it.
and more over GoI does not need to spread our limited diplomatic resources thin.

most importantly, India does not have security treaties other than with bhutan, hence a regional player.

@Dark Sorrow How will we get weapons to China? Can’t China just impose a naval blockade around the island?
We will have to slingshot all the way around Australia, Papua New Guinea and travel across Philippines sea to reach port of Taitung or Hualien or Kaohsiung (if not destroyed).

We will need support of Quad navies to do so.

But what if China decides to do a blockade of the island.

I read somewhere about how Taiwan invasion may play out and how it can effect neighbouring countries.

Here are some insights-

Its not easy to enforce blockade an enemy country. USN and to some extent USAF will prevent this from happening.

This can only be accomplished by a direct military intervention. China will see this as a dec. of war by the USA
