In the #GurungHill sector, #PLA ⛺️ seem to be on the whole Helmet ridge to #Blacktop. How is this a tactical advantage - IA as was being said in media?

The ⛺️ block is 500m long approx.

#LAC for dummies: The "LAC" referred to in an Indian statement is (>50 yr) Indian perception of the LAC. Our perception is based on ground reality as seen for 1/2 century by Indian border forces (it doesn't change with every leadership change, as it does in #CCPchina)
2/lac #LAC #Ladakh After violating the 1993 border management agreement & subsequent ones, since May 2020; the #PLA now cries foul at Indian defensive counter moves (starting Aug 29-30)
3/lac #CcpPla Opening the eastern front, with an attack on Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh (ArP), or just a feint ? In either case our army is on alert all along the entire border.

So

1. We are on LAC heights (our perception 😉)
2. Chinese tps under pressure to dislodge but old
baseball bat drill won't work. They will need big numbers and will have to asslt with wpns. Local commanders have probably not relayed full situation to top

#Ladakh

contd..

1/n
They may be purged if they tell Xi full extent of the problem

3. Warning shots are normally fired when en approaches defender. The attacker usually does not fire ''warning'' shots. We fired on 29/30th Aug to dissuade Chinese attackers

4. But we say China fired. Perfect 👏

2/n
thats exactly how we should play this game. But for analysis of China's options, lets accept Chinese claim that India fired. China says their tps then stabilised the situation

Kaise bhai ? By disenaging ?

Put yourself in Chinese commander's shoes. What are his options

India says the army 'thwarted' Chinese 'proactive military movement' to change status quo along #Ladakh border - by @pabsgill

businessinsider.in/defense/news/i… Image
Amid talks of disengagement and disarmament, the Chinese took to the offensive, according to India’s Ministry of Defence.
On the night between August 29 and 30, the Indian Army claims that the People’s Liberation Army tried to change the status quo, yet again, along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Eastern #Ladakh. An attempt that was ‘thwarted’ by the armed forces (@adgpi).

With little hopes of any breakthrough in the next round of military talks and rivers and nalas in spate now, Army preparing for all contingencies in Ladakh, including any possible Chinese military move as waters subside in the month of October. My report: indianexpress.com/article/india/…
"The rivers and nalas are currently in full spate in eastern Ladakh, and with the tracks located in the valleys, they become unusable and inaccessible. That rules out any military action. But as the water subsides, October is a campaigning season in the area..."
The 1962 border war between India and China was fought in the months of October and November. It spanned the areas in Ladakh which are currently the friction points between the two armies for the last 115 days.

𝐃𝐈𝐀𝐌𝐄𝐑 𝐁𝐇𝐀𝐒𝐇𝐀 𝐃𝐀𝐌 - A recent ill-conceived development

#Thread
1.
The development project by #Pakistan in the occupied areas of #JammuKashmir is of considerable concern to #India. The 8 MAF reservoir with 272m height will be the tallest RCC Dam in the world
2.
Facts about the dam

🔸It will be built on Indus river in #POK (Gilgit Baltistan)
🔸The dam site is situated near a place called "Bhasha", hence the name and is 40Km downstream of Chilas town and 315Km from Tarbela Dam
🔸The dam will produce 4800 megawatts of electricity
3.
.....
🔸It will store an extra 10.5 cubic kilometers of water
🔸Extend the life of Tarbela Dam located downstream by 35 years
🔸Will control flood damage by the River Indus downstream during high floods.

China intruded into Indian territory in 1962 & remains there. Issue since 1967 is abt perceptions of #LAC and #ability to #patrol within the #grey #zones btwn percied LACs. #CeeepingAcquisition refers to #PLA stealthily converting grey into black zones by excluding Indian patrols
#2/fp I have a problem with well informed critics (professing to be patriots), who deliberately confuse the public by treating grey areas as black, and vice versa, as it suits their narrative (raising suspicion its ideological or political)!
3/lad The #CreepingAcqusition within #Greyzones in #Ladakh since May 2020, has been apparent in satellite pictures. What was unclear till recently, was the precise limits of #GreyZones The public was therefore unable to check loosely worded assertions made in text, against maps!

Beipanjiang Bridge, spanning the Nizhu River in #China at a height of 565 meters

World's Highest Bridge and one of the greatest engineering achievements

Completed in 5 years

It is over 200m taller than India's (still) under construction Chenab rail bridge in Kashmir
No other region on earth has as many high bridges as China’s remote Western Province of #Guizhou

The province is now home to more high bridges than every other country on earth combined

By 2020, Guizhou will have more then 250 bridges over 100 meters high
Of the world’s 20 super-high spans that exceed 300 meters from deck to water, all are in #China except for 3

And #China didn't just invest in bridges

It constructed some of the most gorgeous highways in the world

This is Hepu-Napo Expressway in neighbouring #Guilin province

Another potential #OSINT match from the list of 38 soldiers. 张宇 (Zhang Yu) is/was a military communication program graduate from the Information Engineering department of PLA's Strategic Support Force university. Zhang Yu should be 36 years old. Image
Zhang Yu wrote an exam in 2019 to join the Beijing office of the Strategic Support Force. #OSINT Image
A lot of inactive webpages related to Zhang Yu and others. Even cached pages wouldn't load.

Indians often comfort themselves with the 1967 conflict in the naitula pass. This is the fighting record of the 1967 conflict.Breaking Indian glass heart .😂
Indian claim:
India die 88, injure 162
PLA die 340, injure 450
China claim:
PLA die 32 injure 91.
India casualties 607. Image
After the first War in 1962,India became more law-abidin.However, after 1966, due to China's civil strife (the Cultural Revolution),India felt that China could not take care of the border, and another reason.India invaded Sikkim.They believe that naitula pass belongs to Sikkim.
However, the naitula pass belongs to and is controlled by China since ancient times. Under the bewitchment of various reasons.India began to implement the "forward policy" arrogantly.
How arrogant is the Indian army?
Not only did they set up loudspeakers at the border.

First phase of disengagement between armies of India and China at friction points has been completed. As part of it, the Chinese troops have moved back from Finger 4 to Finger 5 in the Finger area: Top Government sources
#Ladakh
Chinese Army has already moved back by around kilometres in the other friction points including Galwan valley, Hot Springs & Patrolling Point-15. Indian side has also moved back as per the mutual disengagement agreed upon during the Corps Commander-level talks: Top Govt sources
Vacant spaces will be treated as temporary non-patrolling zones by India&China,& their troops won't come there.2nd round of disengagement will focus on talks about moving back to permanent locations as per discussions b/w NSA Doval & spl representative from China:Top Govt sources

So what’s trending? #MSDhonibirthday ! Day after deescalation, #Ladakh is of cursory interest to Tweeple. What does it say for public keeping an eye on Chowkidaar? Chinese ain’t morons. There’s method in their aggression. What was their aim & did they achieve it? My take:
1. PLA moved upto/past claimed lines, killing 20 Indian soldiers & defying nucl. weapon armed neighbour to warn others i.e. skinning the cat to frighten monkeys 2. Forced PM Modi on backfoot at home/abroad. 3. Mutual pullback demilitarises some areas India patrolled/controlled.
4. Opened new claim in E.Bhutan to insert land wedge between Bhutan & Arunachal Pradesh, flanking Tawang. It also like Doklam would test India-Bhutan solidarity. 5. Tested quasi-alliances of India with Australia/Japan/US(QUAD) & Indo-Pacific concept. 6. Big Q: Pangong Tso lake!

I read Chinese actions in #Ladakh as a significant trespass across the #LAC aimed at gaining tactical advantage and strategic depth in certain vantage points along the LAC as for 1/n
e.g Depsang Plain (a wide unimpeded plateau) that offers access to the #AksaiChin as also in reverse to areas on our side, #Galwan Valley (commanding heights over the Darbuk-#Shyok-#DBO Road), #Pangong Tso 2/n
But not a fresh territorial dispute over new areas of the UT of Ladakh (where they are already in possession of the Aksai Chin and areas south and east of Kongka La plus the Shaksgam Valley illegally ceded by Pakistan) 3/n

#Modi traveled to #Ladakh to visit soldiers “injured” in #GalwanValleyFaceOff, yet not a single soldier is bandaged/monitored, there is no medical staff & the “hospital” treating them strangely has no medical equipment but does have a stage, podium & projector in recovery ward. ImageImageImageImage
Army clears up everything. It is a conference room converted to a hospital ward - they just forgot to take out A/V equipment. Soldiers are injured but not badly enough to need medical equipment. Injuries on all are underneath clothes.

thewire.in/security/fact-…
Army officials say these are soldiers who received comparatively light injuries and are convalescing. “They are probably injured in different places like leg or arm or chest but are clothed so nothing can be seen.”
