India China news: Indian Army eyes Tibetology to checkmate China | India News - Times of India

ndia, of course, has largely refrained from playing the so-called “Tibet card”, which constitutes a major red-line for China, over the years. Some experts even contend New Delhi “lost” the leverage in 1954 itself when it inked the trade agreement with Beijing, which recognised the “Tibet region” as part of China.
A signal, however, was recently sent by the public acknowledgement of the role played by the Special Frontier Force, a covert special unit that recruits from the Tibetan community exiled in India, during the military manoeuvre to occupy heights on the south bank of Pangong Tso-Kailash range area in end-August. “Either way, if you want to use Tibet as an issue in India-China relations, then expertise in Tibetology will be critical,” said an expert.



Free TIbet from chinese occupation.
This is significant. I initially thought this directive might have been from the CDS and COAS, but nope. This is the third step. Second one was Tibetan elections. And the first was SFF. This is directly from GoI.

Tibetology: The Indian Army’s new plan of action against China
India is undertaking a rebalance of military forces and fire power to the northern borders with China. The Army is now fine-tuning a proposal for its officers to study Tibetan history, culture and language. The plan is to study it from both sides of the LAC and the international boundary. These are measures being discussed to “counter the propaganda and spread of influence by China”. The Tibetology proposal is now being “further analysed” by the Shimla-based Army Training Command (ARTRAC).

Step in the right direction. I just hope that the govt takes it seriously and walks the talk.

Boeing gets U.S. approval to offer F-15EX to India

strange timing in this offer???
I am not that knowledgeable about these matters, but how does this compare with our Su 30MKI, MiG 29s ?

Well I have always said. Annex Chumur disputed zone. If the post lies inside the disputed area, well and good.



Apart from this IA/ITBP should make a permanent presence at Barahoti Plains in central sector. Indian army have long avoided permanent presence here due to Chinese objections. Chinese borders guards love to patrol this place which should be denied once for all.

Overpriced and overengineered.not to forget sanction prone. Modernisation of the existing su30mki is priority
F15 EX is much advanced then Russian counterpart Su30, literally it is bomb truck can carry 16 A2A missiles under a single fighter & fitted with advanced AESA. Its an overkill for any fighter in pak arsenal but much needed to counter PLAAF as China is operating large no of Russian origin fighters. 6 to 8 AMRAAM configuration under single fighter is a devastating fire power

No more defence equipment should be bought from usa .
Remember biden is there , they will stop many things just because they are woke .
When you have allies in military complex it buys you great leverage.
US is country which give extremely high importance to money. when it affects bottom line and quarter earnings, some lobbyist from Boeing/GE will visit WH and ask Dems to shut up. The Real power in US does not lie in WH but the people who pay those $M donations.

The Chinese have mastered this game so well using Amazon/walmarts and bunch of greedy corporations. Indian politicians are only good at fooling their own people. I see no other way to balance this out other than becoming self reliant. In the meanwhile buy leverage at important places.
