Don't think they're nuclear silos... Why will they build nuclear silos in plain barren land exposing entire layout which can be taken out easily during war. These are conventional silos to take out airbases
Even US silos are visible to the enemy.. and are vulnerable to first strike. The ICBMs like DF 41 and DF 31A which are road mobile and can hit continental United States, form the main element of China’s nuclear deterrence.. These Silos also serve another purpose.. These silos are each spaced a few kilometers apart, but only few among them would have nuclear ICBMs.. the other dummy ones won't have any, and the enemy would be forced to spend a number of ICBMs to hit the destroy these sites..

I think we have enough strength to embarrass China in Himalaya, Bay of Bengal and in Indian ocean but our politicians have yet to grow the spine. After Galwan, they are totally frightened but we failed to maintain pressure.
May be they understand we can give a blow but can we sustain the fight, that is main point. You fight to win, with depleting squadron, time is required to re equip the force, rebuild an economy which according to many expert is in a tail spin.
Add to that Modi has to contend with many internal discontent, being religious or political opponent.

Okay, what is advanced? Just because the equipment is made recently, automatically makes it "advanced"?

Let's take some examples.
View attachment 102023

This is M2 Browning HMG, whose design is unchanged since WW1. Pretty obsolete piece of equipment, eh? Yet more than half of world military use it today.

View attachment 102024

Carl-Gustav RCL, my favourite type of infantry weapon in Indian arsenal. It was designed just after WW2 (1948). Must be an obsolete equipment right? But now US military and special forces are placing order for it.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Artillery is a relatively simple piece of equipment. 105mm IFG went numerous improvements in Indian arsenal, and its metallury has also been improved to increase its barrel-life and make it lighter. It is hardly obsolete.
Let’s not talk about the data link, GPS automatic gun adjustment, these fashionable things, one of the most basic, this old artillery can quickly strike, quickly withdraw, the survival time of an artillery position in modern warfare is only 14 minutes,

Then how can we save our motherland, after all PM has to say yes/no.

If PM is frightened then how we say we are safe . Its very dangerous situation.

We need IRON MAN like we have earliar.

It’s the politicians who have been wrong except for Sardar vallabh bhai patel, and the military leadership who have been right.

if military leadership had accepted Indira’s urgency on Bangladesh, probably there wouldn’t have been a bangladesh. it’s the plan by military leadership that turned out to be the right one.

Military leadership gives options, politicians select from the options given. Obama took 40 days to green light operation Geronimo. if a relatively simple kill op takes 40 days to get green lighted, opening a war front with a neighbor takes even more thinking and variables to sort out.

isnt it a lot more than trade routes .

wont be funny in about 30 years , when chinese start building bases in pacific islands
Going by current geopolitical volatility, China won't be able to survive 30 more years in military supremacy.

If China kept their military power undercover and continued with their peaceful rise till the point they are able to clearly outmaneuver the USA technologically as well as numerically, plus creating a strong alliance, they could have been world superpowers.

Unfortunately, China put her head up too fast, too quick, and too aggressively.

China stakes it's population for the military budget. India does spend a lot of money on public good other than defence. Imagine serving for a fat d*ck head communist for 2 gm of cooked dog per day.
