new Delhi: Not only has India prepared for a prolonged deployment amid border tensions with China for the past four months, but has also made full arrangements to defeat China’s war spirits. According to highly placed sources, India had started strengthening its preparations and fronts from May 2020, sensing Chinese intentions. Due to this, the Indian Army is also ready for a long front in the mountains of Ladakh and if needed, even for war in the cold winter.
According to highly placed military sources, the Indian Army is not only fully prepared, but is capable of fighting a full war even in the difficult winter of the eastern Ladakh region. Necessary logistic arrangements have been made for this.
Logistic capabilities are, in fact, related to mobility or movement easements to advance fronts, living facilities and health for soldiers, special rations, repairs, heating systems, high quality weapons, ammunition, quality clothing, etc. In areas of eastern Ladakh where such capabilities already existed and soldiers could only plug and play. At the same time, from May this year, India started strengthening its logistic system only after the traces of aggression were seen in Chinese attitude.
However, before we talk further on India’s preparations, it is also important to know the picture of Maidan Jung, made in the mountainous region of Ladakh. In the plateau area of Ladakh, the mountains can be placed between high to super high altitude. In many areas, the temperature is minus 30 to 40 degrees Celsius and 40 feet of snowfall is recorded. From October onwards, the weather starts to get very cold and there is a lot of snowfall in the month of November. Also, the wind chill factor makes the situation extremely difficult for the soldiers. Roads are also closed due to snow.
Despite these challenges of nature, what is reassuring for India is that Indian soldiers have a great experience of winter war and they are always psychologically ready for deployment even at short notice.
According to a senior military officer, this fact is known to the world, but little is known about the operational logistics capabilities of the Indian Army. In such a situation, what is being said in media reports coming in newspapers like China’s Global Times, about India’s lack of capabilities and not being able to fight in winter, is simply their ignorance.
Traditionally, there were two routes to go to Ladakh, which pass through Zojila and Rohtang Pass. Recently, India built the third road from Darcha to Leh, which is not only small in terms of distance, but the risk of its closure is also low. On the other hand, the completion of the Atal tunnel on Rohtang Marg increases the logistic capabilities of logistics supply manifold.
According to sources, in order to strengthen its preparations, the army has already deployed a large number of snow removal equipment on the important routes connecting Ladakh. Due to this, strategic routes will be kept open even after November when the weather is bad. With the help of these preparations, India can meet the daily needs of its soldiers even in the most difficult circumstances. Apart from this, a large number of air bases in Ladakh and its close areas are also the strength of India, with the help of which necessary logistical support and logistics can be delivered to the army.
According to military sources, India has stocked special fuel for tanks and armored vehicles, from mobil oil to spare parts. Eating and drinking arrangements for not only his soldiers but also for mules for animals such as yaks and mules working for logistic supplies have become complete. Apart from this, residential barracks of soldiers are also ready which are comfortable and warm. Facilities like central heating system have been installed in them.
According to a senior military officer aware of the preparations, a wide variety of ammunitions including small arms, missiles and ammunition of tanks and artillery have also been adequately stocked.
Actually, the propaganda seen in the Chinese media as prepoganda is actually an attempt to hide their fear. Sources reveal that compared to physically and psychologically strong Indian soldiers, the Chinese Army soldiers are mostly from urban areas, for which long-term deployment in difficult conditions of Ladakh region will not be easy.
According to a senior military officer, it is important to understand that the Indian Army has the experience of Siachen where conditions are much more difficult than the borders with China.
Experts believe that China has always been expressing the concept of winning wars without fighting. But in such a situation, if the conditions of war are created, then they will be confronted with trained, better prepared and psychologically hardened Indian soldiers in the battlefield. It is obvious that Chinese strategists will also be worried about this. That is why the Chinese state media is busy propagating its strength in the coming days.
