2020-06-23

India's NDTV website reported on the 20th, the same day in the Ladakh region over the city appeared a large number of Indian air force's U.S. "Apache". "Helicopter gunships. Indian military analysts believe that the Indian army's rapid deployment of these "tank killers" was prompted by the news that "China in the Ladakh region" had been "using them as a weapon to kill people. Tanks were deployed close to the Line of Actual Control". The Tribune said the Indian Navy was also involved in the operation, with P-8I patrol aircraft brought in from the United States to conduct mainly aerial reconnaissance missions which is responsible for mapping the area for the troops and monitoring the electromagnetic signals around it.

According to India's NDTV website on 21, the Indian Air Force Commander Bada Uriah, who visited the frontline air base in Leh, confirmed that Indian Air Force jets are patrolling the skies to "monitor activities from China". He said, "Our fighter jets are fully armed and ready to respond to cross-border operations by Chinese aircraft".

According to the Times of India, Badhaulia said the Chinese air force, deployed near the Line of Actual Control, conducts routine exercises every summer , but "we have noticed more deployments than usual this year." He stressed, "It is clear that we are well prepared and properly deployed to deal with any eventuality." "I can assure all India that we can wash away the shame and will never let those brave souls die in vain." The British Daily Mail said on 20 October that the Indian Air Force has deployed upgraded MiG-29 fighter jets, Su-30MKI and Mirage 2000 fighter jets, Puma attack planes moved to forward airfields, "ready for emergency missions".

Indian Air Force MiG-29 fighter jets

On June 18, India announced an emergency purchase of 12 Su-30MKI from Russia, according to the U.S. Military Observer on June 20. and 21 upgraded MiG-29 fighter jets. The Russian side said it would deliver these fighter jets in the shortest possible time once India submits its procurement programme. According to the report, these two Russian fighter jets are the mainstay of the Indian Air Force, which means that the Indian Air Force has ready-made maintenance infrastructure and With well-trained pilots, the planes could quickly become combat-capable after delivery to the Indian Air Force. However, reports believe that these fighters are feared to be powerless to change the current gap between China and India's air power. "The main model currently deployed forward by the Indian Air Force is the upgraded MiG-29. despite its advanced features, it is unlikely to against the new generation of fighters such as the J-10C, J-16 and J-20 deployed by China in the western theatre". The report's analysis said.For example, the J-10C has a powerful integrated AESA radar and is equipped with the Thunderbolt-15 air-to-air missile, which has a range comparable to that of the MiG-29. 2-3 times more missiles. Reports suggest that the Indian Air Force can only count on newer generation fighters such as the Russian-made Su-57 if it wants to change its passivity.

In the Andaman Islands, thousands of kilometers away from the Himalayas, the Indian Navy has not been idle. The Times of India said on 20, the Indian navy has asked ships in the Andaman Islands to be more alert, especially "to guard against Chinese submarines. Infiltration".

According to the report, Indian naval top brass believe that "China may not continue to be in the Line of Actual Control after suffering casualties in Ladakh widen the conflict, but rather 'get back' elsewhere, including the strategically important Andaman Islands". To this end, the Indian Navy has called for the deployment of multiple missile frigates and even destroyers to the area, along with 3-4 P-8I patrol aircraft Provide uninterrupted air reconnaissance.

The United States "Forbes" website said on 20, in the current context of tensions along the Sino-Indian land border, the Indian navy will continue to focus mainly on Concentrated in the Indian Ocean and Malacca. Reports suggest that the Indian Navy's insistence on increasing troop levels in the Andaman Islands near the Straits of Malacca is primarily a response to the Chinese navy, in particular Chinese submarines "frequently enter the Indian Ocean".

According to reports, India currently has a number of air bases in the Andaman Islands, which can be used by fighter jets and long-range reconnaissance aircraft. But India's home naval bases are far away, and reinforcements will take quite a while. "If Indian ships are deployed directly to the Andamans, they are better suited to deal with unexpected local crises". Also Indian conventional submarines are suited to operate in relatively shallow local waters and can provide protection to Indian nuclear submarines patrolling in deeper waters.

Cold warfare in the highlands

For our readers at large, the Indian provocation of June 15 came out of the blue, causing global concern and high regional tensions. It is true that a border clash of this magnitude is unheard of, given the vast area, duration and friction of the conflict. However, with our side and the Indian side taking the initiative to de-escalate the situation, the incident ended up with the Indian side suffering unilaterally.

The entire process of the incident has been more clearly organized by our Foreign Ministry spokesman in his statement on June 19. However, for reasons such as the downgrading of our side's tone of voice, the details of the incident have not been made public, and many readers are not aware of the full picture of the incident. Not very clear, in this article, I have also been asked by some of my readers to briefly compile the details of the incident.

Due to our downgrading, and the Indian side's justifiable disadvantage, even the nationalist Modi had to emphasize in his speech that "the PLA did not enter our borders."

Over the past two months, India has suddenly adopted an aggressive strategy against me in the Garhwan Valley. The Garhwan is our traditional territory on the Chinese side of the Line of Actual Control in the western sector of the Sino-Indian border, which was not disputed by China or India in the past. . The Garhwan originates from the White Rock Bank in our country and flows into the north-south oriented Indian-controlled Shriok River, which flows westward into the Indus River, a rugged terrain. It is a typical alpine valley landscape, with temperatures below zero all year round and no one but outposts within a few dozen square kilometres. Despite this, India has invested heavily in the region in recent years due to the favourable geographical conditions on the Indian side, with infrastructure and troop strength advantages.

The Shikshahr region is a long-running border area of India, and India has been constructing military stations and outposts around high ground, building roads and bridges in the disputed territory to the north west of the Garhwan Valley, in a vain attempt to take advantage of our army's weak infrastructure in the Garhwan Valley region to encroach on our territory.

Our Line of Actual Control (LAC) is near the Garhwan Valley and India is trying to create a fait accompli by building bridges and roads and exiting its stronghold before the rainy season.

From April, India started building bridges and roads in the Shikhok area and shifted the Line of Actual Control (LAC) eastward to our Garhwan and Shikhok areas. In the early hours of 6 May, Indian border guards crossed the line into Chinese territory in the Garhwan valley area by night, fortifying and fortifying themselves. Barriers have been set up to prevent normal patrols by the Chinese border guard forces, deliberately provoking incidents and attempting to unilaterally change the status quo of border control. The Chinese border guard forces had to take the necessary measures to strengthen their response on the spot and control of the border area, and they have repeatedly met with Indian soldiers in the river valley. Regional Standoff.

Our troops and the Indians face off across the river.

On the evening of 15 June, in the Garhwan Valley area of the Sino-Indian border, the Indian army, contrary to its commitments, once again crossed the Line of Actual Control (LAC) illegally and deliberately initiated The provocative attack led to a fierce physical confrontation between the two sides, resulting in casualties. For the sake of de-escalation, our Defence Ministry, in its statement after the incident, simply said that the Indian troops "launched a provocative attack across the border". We can only rely on Indian media and local maps to recreate the deadliest battle of the 21st century.

According to the Indian media, during the night of the 15th to the early morning of the 16th, the Indian army concentrated its elite personnel and crossed the Garhwan valley and climbed the mountain to the Garhwan valley. My Garhwalwan border road site, trying to disrupt the Chinese evening construction operations and trying to create a fait accompli on the other side of the river. According to the Indian media, the location of this provocation by the Indian army was within one kilometre of the line of actual control. The Indian army entered the site and forcibly blocked it, injured my construction staff and destroyed the property of the construction team, and clashed with my construction team.

The PLA troops in the vicinity subsequently arrived and clashed violently with the Indian side, which claimed that the PLA had used wooden sticks with barbed wire, finger tigers, sapper shovels, etc., to attack what the Indian media described as "unarmed" Indian troops.The Indian Army then called for reinforcements, which, according to reports later published by Indian journalists, included infantry from the 3rd Infantry Division of the 14th Army Leh, the 12th and 16th Battalions of the Bihar Battalion, the 3rd Punjab Regiment, the 3rd Medium Artillery Regiment, and the 8th Mountain Artillery Regiment, all of which could be described as "the best of the best," which explains why the PLA ended up capturing a large number of battalion-level colonel-level officers.

In the end, a large number of officers from various units of the Indian Northern Command were killed, wounded or captured during the operation.

The two groups fought with our troops for six hours, after which the group of Indians was driven from the mountains to the vicinity of the valley below, and the Indian media also stated that The PLA attacked Indian troops on the riverbanks by throwing "stones" from high up and low down, and a number of Indian soldiers ended up falling into the icy waters of the Garhwan River. According to the Indian Ministry of Defence, 3 Indian troops died on the spot, 17 died of their injuries and 78 were wounded. Twenty-two were in serious condition. In addition, a number of soldiers and officers, including a lieutenant colonel and three majors, were detained by the PLA until 18 June. Release to return to India.

The MEA's clear response to the casualties of our troops is that"Threatening the lives of our troops,"Rather than "casualties on both sides". Only the Indian media or the official media on the extranet, citing so-called "military sources", report exaggerated figures after exaggerated figures, but of course. Nor is there any official Indian authority to endorse these exaggerated casualty figures. The conflict was a "sufficiently retro" "armoured battle" and, as in most cases during the Cold War era, the main casualties of the defeated army were. The casualties occurred when they were routed and pursued by the other side. Considering that our army finally took control of the battlefield and captured a number of senior Indian officers, these so-called "successes" of the Indian army are not worth mentioning. Since the Indian army was both unilaterally attacked and unilaterally defeated in this incident, in keeping with the principle of de-escalation negotiations, our army did not release further information on its "successes". Casualty figures to avoid irritating Indians.

With the downgrading of China and India and the unilateral declaration of victory by the Modi authorities on June 18, the casualty figures for this 21st century The largest of the fights ended with the loss of nearly 100 men on the Indian side. This incident has not ended so far, as the Indian forces have not disengaged from our forces in the Garhwan Valley area and the 3rd Battalion on the Leh side is still intact. Infantry divisions and artillery units of the 14th Army have also begun to close in on the Garhwan Valley area. The Indian Air Force has also deployed weapons such as MiG-29s, recently arrived Apache helicopter gunships to the Ladakh area to impose on our western theatre of operations. Military pressure.

This incident can be characterized as a typical "advance and fail" of the Indian army, India unilaterally provoked the incident, forward confrontation, the loss of later back to the original point. But compared to the Donglang incident in India to "go back to the beginning" as a termination note, India in this incident can be said to be "purely at a disadvantage". Not only did they fail to take control of the high ground near the river valley, destroy the PLA outposts and rear infrastructure and complete their encroachment, but they also failed to take control of our undisputed territory. The loss of troops was not only a rational loss, but also a serious blow to the morale of frontline Indian troops. The defeat exposed not only the disparity in the level of organization and combat capabilities of the frontline troops of China and India, but also the Chinese and Indian The growing gap between the two countries' comprehensive national power.
