‘Indian Tanks Can Reach LAC Within Minutes, Did So After China’s Aggressive Maneuvers South Of Pangong Tso In August’: Report

Indian tanks deployed in the Chushul sector, which lies south of the Pangong Lake in eastern Ladakh, have the capability to reach the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in this region “within minutes”, a report in India Today says.

Indian tanks, the report says, “did so” — reached the LAC in a short time — when China started aggressive maneuvers in the region after the Indian Army and the Special Frontier Force occupied tactically important heights south of the Pangong Lake on the intervening night of 29 and 30 August.

“The Indian armoured regiments have the capability to reach the LAC within minutes if they are required and did so recently, when the Chinese activated their tanks after India occupied several heights near the southern bank of Pangong Lake following the incidents of August 29-30,” the report reads.

Along with tanks, India has deployed Armored Personnel Carriers and artillery guns in the Chushul sector to deter Chinese adventurism.
