Indian Army more experienced at higher altitudes than PLA: Lt Gen Hooda

Indian Army has more experience operating at higher altitudes than the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) of China.

Hooda, former general officer commanding-in-chief of the Indian Army’s northern command, said, “Both India and China have deployed huge number of army personnel who are prepared for long term eyeball to eyeball situation. But, the Indian Army has a tactical advantage, as they have been operating at higher altitudes and hilly terrains in harsh winters for a long time.”

“Although a series of military, diplomatic and ministerial level talks have taken place between the two countries, PLA has refused to disengage at ground level and maintain status-quo at Line-of-Actual Control (LAC). Both nuclear powers cannot afford to have a full-fledged war,” he added .

The virtual meet was also attended by national security experts and senior administrative officials of the Punjab Government .
