China preparing to open new front in North-East!

It’s not easy to fly here

This airport is located at such a height that it will not be easy for all the aircraft to fly from here. The temperature here remains well below zero on cold days. Whereas, even on normal days, strong wind, lack of oxygen and low density of air make it difficult for aircraft to fly. On cold days, the wind speed here goes up to 30 meters per second.


8 airfields of China near LAC
Open source intelligence analyst Detresfa released a picture and shared details of the Chinese airbase near LAC. It also provides information about the aircraft deployed at the concerned airbase. Explain that China is weaker than India in terms of air power in this region due to its high altitude. While the Indian airbase is in the lower zone from where they can take action against China to their full potential.

Amid Indo-China faceoff, BJP wins LAHDC polls with thumping majority
Indo-China faceoff notwithstanding, BJP Monday won Leh Autonomous Hill Development Council (LAHDC) polls with a thumping majority.

The polls were being touted as a referendum on Centre’s decision to grant union territory status to Ladakh.

10,000 More Permanent Troops Likely For LAC
 10,000 More Permanent Troops Likely For LAC

SOMEWHERE IN LADAKH: In the wake of China’s aggression in eastern Ladakh, the deployment of additional forces is well underway. But first, a quick look at the current force status.
While 8 Mountain Division has been tasked to look after the LoC since 1999, post the Kargil conflict, an entire brigade, directly under the control of 14 Corps headquarters in Leh, continues to guard the Saltoro ridge that overlooks the Siachen Glacier. However, until the current standoff began, the Karu-headquartered 3 Infantry Division was responsible for security of the entire eastern Ladakh LAC with China. Since mid-May, however, as additional forces were rushed in, the Northern Command has reassessed and reviewed the need for permanent deployment of some of those forces in eastern Ladakh.

It is likely that in the long term, another division (about 10,000 troops) will now be deployed in Ladakh to share the burden of guarding the LAC along with 3 Infantry Division. With the Chinese military challenge showing signs of increasing with time, that’s the minimum the Indian Army will have to cater for to bolster Ladakh’s defence. As we saw firsthand, work has already begun to house additional forces not just through the current winter but on a long-term basis.
Lower formation headquarters have staged forward closer to the LAC, locations for their permanent billeting have been identified and earmarked. Fortunately, Ladakh does not have a shortage of vacant, uninhabited parcels of land.

This additional division, which used to train in high-altitude areas of Ladakh as part of its dual tasking until early this year (thereafter returning to its peacetime locations outside Ladakh), packs a powerful punch.
It fields an independent armoured brigade with a mix of Infantry Combat Vehicles (ICVs), T-72 and T-90 tanks. The armoured regiments—strung along vital points on the LAC—provide deterrence not witnessed in eastern Ladakh earlier. Some of those T-72s, as reported earlier, are also deployed on the Kailash range heights, Rechin La and Rezang La since August 30. That was the day when tanks were driven up to the peaks in the Chushul sector for the first time, following up on an infantry deployment. The Chinese subsequently brought in their Type-99 tanks, creating a unique situation where opposing armoured forces are stationed less than 400 metres from each other. Fortunately, the tank barrels on both sides are turned backwards.
It needs to be noted that these additional forces would have perhaps been deployed in Ladakh may be two-three years down the line once adequate infrastructure had been built. India has been building up troop strength gradually since 2013 when a short standoff had occurred at Depsang. An additional brigade pulled out from Kashmir valley was inducted in the DBO sector in the wake of that crisis. Similar plans were afoot for the next three years but China’s belligerence has ensured that India has compressed its military plans.
Meanwhile, the current military stalemate that has ensued in Ladakh is sought to be broken through talks at the Corps Commanders level. Another round—eighth in the series—is likely soon but that is not stopping Indian decision-makers from preparing for the long haul and ordering additional permanent deployment in Ladakh.

When has the size of Indian army division reduced to 10000 troops...?

Is there any equivalent agreement like BECA, CISMOA and LEMOA for the USA with other countries? I wanted to know more about which other countries have such pacts with USA.

The biggest letdown for me was how this whole bollywood case was ended abruptly.

It's almost as if long term thinking is gone.

The recent ads by Eros tanishq and the co atyant bashing of hindus by bollywood is a part of a huge network.

GOI had everything popular support emotions running high and the belief of everyone and yet they slept on it.

An RW network needs to built and the LW destroyed neither is happening.
I understand your frustration but it won't happen the way you guys want it.

Democracies always lean towards the left naturally because socialism is easy to sell.

The electoral politics of India is a good thing and a bad thing at the same time. Getting anything logical is always difficult.

Sushant case is in court and court demands solid evidence. So while govt may be sympathetic to public opinion, the case won't be decided by public opinion.

I think patience is needed sometimes.

Socialist i.e Lefty economics and social liberalism aren't the same.
iirc most people in this forum don't care about Sushant, but instead wanted to see Bollywoodiyas getting the stick.

World is the same, Eros kinda things have always been happening, and people who have been opposing it were a minority.

it’s the awareness that has changed, more people are visibly opposing it now a days due to social media.

but unless these kinda things hurt Eros bottom line, there won’t be a permanent change.

Any buffer zone is a loss for India. While buffers are good to maintain a distance between hostile troops but we are already unable to patrol upto our perceived LAC at many place and now buffer zones on top of that.


Also bhadwas like Ajai Shukla will keep confusing the masses regarding Buffer Zones. :scared2:
