外文标题：Breaking: India could take out Qinghai-Tibet Railway to cripple PLA
The Qinghai-Tibet Railway — which runs between Xining in western China's Qinghai province and Lhasa in Tibet — could become a potential target for the Su-33MKI fighters of the Indian Air Force if a territorial dispute between China and India escalates into a full-scale war, according to the Kanwa Defense Review operated by Pinkov also known as Andrei Chang, a Canada-based journalist specializing in military issues.
Earlier this year, Beijing and New Delhi agreed to withdraw their respective forces from the disputed area of Daulat Beg Oldie in the Ladakh border region between the two countries. However, tensions remain as an official border was never drawn following a conflict in 1962.
Even though China's military is more powerful than India's, the People's Liberation Army has several weaknesses near the contested border, the report said. China only has two main air force bases in the region — Gongga and Shigatse — and since they are very close to each other, the Indian Air Force could easily neutralize the Chinese fleet there in a short period of time. As for the other four air force bases in Tibet, none of them are able to accommodate advanced PLA fighters.
According to the Kanwa Defense Review, China's second weakness is that the PLA units in Tibet rely too much on the Qinghai-Tibet Railway for supplies. Once the railway is cut off, it would be extremely difficult for the PLA to find a new supply line. There are 260 bridges and two tunnels within Tibet and India's Mirage 2000 and Su-33MKI fighters would able to attack most of them with precision guided munitions.
The title of this thread made me laugh.
Why do Indians want to strike on China.
Doesn't India know China has air transportation. Doesn't 15th Airborne Corps ring a bell?
Also, China has railways.
It is the chinese who are saying these words, ask those paranoid chinese who threaten small island nations why they are so afraid of India and imagine India as a threat .
If you put it like that...
Looks like China has turned into America; paranoid, looking for land...
Indian media have already brainwashed Indians. In fact China has not expanded her territory by military conquest since 1946. On the other hand India has invaded Goa. They always talk about Tibet; using their unique and selective understanding of World History; i.e. propaganda.
The fact that Tibet has very difficult terrain coupled with the fact that it is far away from main populated areas of China can create problems for China as in every country (including China) highways and railways are concentrated near main population centres.
Outnumbered by quantity does make sense but "quality". From when China started thinking there weapon quality is better then India or any other country. They are still inferior and will always be same!!
I am not a military expert. But isn’t the Bramos a anti-ship missile ? Wasn’t it designed to cruise over a flat ocean ?
How can it be able to cruise over mountainous Himalayas ? How would it be effective ?
I think China will import indian and bangladeshi workers in ten years as there population will be old.Then we will breed like anything and make China part of india by 2050.
LOL. No chance in hell. Indians will still be trying to feed their poor. Plus I believe long before that time, Chinese will reverse one child policy and Chinese men and women will have 2-3 children per family.
China lost moral values for families due to westernization of media .Too much divorce,sexuality before marriage ruins prospects of creating a stable family.
We have become westernized instead of being modernized.
Divorce rate is rising very fast, sexual culture is rising due to western culture, and violence is on the rise due to western movies.
Western culture has destroyed ancient Chinese culture. This causes the youth to abandon Chinese culture, values and systems and worship western culture, values and systems.
Its the same trend in India too
No, India still practice arrange marriages. This is because of caste determine marriage mates. Not love as in western countries. At least in most cases.
Premarital sex is very high in metropolitans. Whatever arranged marriages or caste marriages are happening,a number of them are ending in divorce or partners are having affairs with others.
Indian society of late has become a joke in almost every aspect.Once moral values collapse,in a matter of 50-100 years society becomes weak and collapses.
Well we don't know that chinese took over India and they crushed Hindu people!! Was it your last night dream..lol..I always say China is still third world country and they prove it where ever you meet them especially in UK.They always talk pointless as same as you are talking in this thread..So this proved you are all Moron from born..
Against China, India win the war if it can prevent Chinese invasion. It does not have to invade China to claim victory.
And you believe china can invade a country of 1.2 billion with 2-3 million armed personal and thats too divided by himalayan range? Shelling cities with missiles wont get anyone anything but will only weaken both. The two countries after the war would be sitting ducks to shoot for western countries.
The war can only indict damage and nothing more. There can not be any winner since no party will be able to achieve its purpose which in any terms can be called fruitful and cost worthy.
An HQ-9 is enough to sink the MKIs.
Indian airbase decimated by CJ-10 cruise missiles.
Chinese Missile dont work
When MKIs come, PLA just withdrew from TIbet
Scarred Chines are becoming more and more aggressive (On Forum only)
It seems that Chinese members are becoming a bit frank after having some time in PDF. A well come change.
