India deploys game-changer US weapons along China border
NEW DELHI: India has deployed recently acquired US-made weaponry along its border with China, part of a new offensive force to bolster its capabilities as the countries remain deadlocked over disputed territory in the Himalayas.
Now US-manufactured Chinook helicopters, ultra-light towed howitzers and rifles as well as domestically-made supersonic cruise missiles and a new-age surveillance system will back Indian troops in areas bordering eastern Tib. The weapons have all been acquired in the past few years
It's because of Modi Gov and his focus that we have these arms and ammunition and can take a firm stand.
Exactly! On the bull's eye!
Its because of Modi govt that China has become our number one enemy and the Indian subcontinent has become the largest buyer of Western company produced arms. Previous govt was careful in staying neutral to the US/China rivalry and not be seen as an American counterweight/puppet to China.
Bloomberg is a western media and western media is jealous of Indian advances in Military and economic fronts.
India has already started manufacturing multiple weapons so the comment that India cant make a simple rifle is not true. India's that condition was thanks to the Congress governments who found it very convenient to pocket huge bribes in defence purchase so never encouraged production
Why are we itching for war? I don't think anybody wants a war unless things are pushed too far. Its one thing to strongly defend our borders and another thing to demand war. Nobody is going to help us if things go hot they only want to make a big buck by selling us equipments.
Hiding coward will never win a war..
If war breaks,no one will come to the rescue of India We have to defend ourselves.
You really think that US, Israel, and France will fight your war. Think again.
Because they know India will also not fight war for them so why should they.
At last India is correcting the mistakes done yester years, Now our soldier will be able to fight with full support.
No doubt Modi is honest and doing everything possible unlike Congis eye's were only on pocketing commission... if people of India stand by him and work hard to take the country to progress, instead of wasting energy to pull him down, India too can achieve and overcome past shortcomings... God bless Modiji and patriots of the country
China has no guts to go war against India
India should just make sure that a strong deterrence is felt by China. Good that the country is working on that on a continual basis
Its a very immature comment. Do you think china doesnt have shields to counter the nuclear weapons from india ? They are superior in terms of technological warfare. We need a better approach to this than warmongering
His comment is immature but I don't believe China is ahead in military technology . China is certainly ahead in commercial tech
India is the only superpower which can't make a simple rifle with bullets and India is the only superpower trying to win wars with foreign bought junk arms. Indians should take a look at what happened to Saddam Hussein again.
1962 is 60 years old story, today we can proudly say we can beat the best in the world. Our resolute troops are a testimony.
Requesting all Indians to boycott Chinese made product
Indian people must not buy Chinese products and don't use their services. The Indian Government cannot do that, but the Indian people can.
Chinese products still are the top selling products in the west and in Japan and ASEAN. Where do you think it will hurt them if Indians stopped buying their products?
Due credit must be given to Honouable Prime Minister Modi ji. Biggest of super powers has been defeated in past. India never wanted war or will start war. We always want peace.
With neighbors like Pakistan and China, India should have a strong defense.
Its not the weapons that decide outcome of war, but strategy. Weapons help for sure
We must increase number of Chinooks, Hercules and C7 strategic heavylift aircraft. Their numbers are very few.
if the Congress had built military infrastructure and the economy for the last 60 years like the Modi govt is doing..India would be no 1 country by now.
