‘They definitely are fools by keeping tension alive on a useless piece of land and let india go stronger and stronger. Then india cannot be beaten.
They did an experiment with india . They wanted to see how we would react if they decided to use military action to secure their territorial gains because countries in SCS having failed to show stiff resistance , but confrontation with india didn't go too well for them because india retaliated on a large scale by massive deployment of forces and we improved techical warfare capability of our forces in that sector . But that's the picture on the operational scale , if you look at the tactical level of operations then they can be very clever in their actions .

do you have proof?
All Chinese data I found are 3.7t,
Combat weight 4.2t
China believes this howitzer has a low chance of survival in modern warfare, so it is not equipped
Well, how about you have a look at your own article before posting it?

The UAE has already deployed some of its Denel G5 155 mm/45 calibre towed gun-howitzers to Yemen but these are considered too heavy for some missions. The G5 weighs about 14 tonnes, while Norinco says the AH4 weighs 4.5 tonnes. This means that, unlike the South African gun, it can be moved by one of the UAE’s CH-47F Chinook transport helicopters using a sling.
I will believe any 3rd-party like UAE who has evaluated it with other guns rather than PLA propaganda datasheet.

It’s hard to maintain logistics in this region. Retaking Aksai will be very hard.

There is nothing called combat weight and empty weight for an artillery piece.

You can dismantle it in many parts and transport it, in fact, we have been doing it for quite some time.

Laser-guided artillery shells are basically of this precision. China has exported a large number of GB155 series guided artillery shells to the Middle East in recent years.
Ha…..Ha…..Ha…… Export to Middle East. Think again.

What kind of proactive action are you talking about ? That bridge is some 20km from the LAC , any large movement of PLA troops can be detected with the current level of our surveillance besides that we already have a big levels of troop strength on the south bank with armour and mechanised infantry . We can't stop them from building bridges just like they can't stop us from building the DS DBO road .
But wouldn't it affect the status quo that is supposed to be maintained at the flashpoints. Didn't we vacate those positions as it was one of the demands by them to descalate in the currently/perpetually ongoing negotiations.

I don't know how you are linking this issue to the disengagement agreement, we vacated south bank because they vacated north bank .Even our road building will affect the status Quo but does that mean we will stop building our roads? The bridge is roughly 20km from the flashpoint and is not covered under the agreement negotiated and implemented in feb 2021 for good reason. If we ask them to stop building infrastructure then we will have to do the same as a guarantee to the other side . Negotiations work upon the principle of give and take , that's how it works . The media is unecessarily hyping the issue. Think rationally folks ! I pity those people who call this an act of war lol !
