Amid efforts to resolve the issue through dialogue between India and China, the Indian Army has geared up to take on its adversary, if needed. In view of China’s military activities, the army does not want to leave any corps in its preparations on any front.
That is why the Indian Army has deployed T-90 and T-72 tanks with BMP-2 Infantry Combat Vehicles in the Chumar-Demchok area of East Ladakh at an altitude of 16 to 18 thousand feet, which is also at temperatures up to minus 40 degrees Celsius. This deployment also means that the Indian Army is ready for any combat at an altitude of 16 thousand feet in the cold desert of eastern Ladakh.
Tanks deployed in the most inaccessible areas
The LAC has a flat area for fighting across the Indus River on the eastern border, from eastern Ladakh to China’s occupied Tibet. Here T-90 and T-72 tanks have been deployed in inaccessible areas of East Ladakh.
No country in the world has been able to deliver such a great weapon at such high altitude and difficult terrain, because it was not easy to reach this tank weighing 46 tons in an area like Ladakh. India has also started exercises to learn the dynamics of tanks in the flat area here.
