Re: Latest Chinese boast: should we shiver or die laughing?

I can't answer for the Chinese but stockpiling without space for maneuverability on top of the plateau also makes them highly vulnerable to a arty barrage. Also a compliment of SAM/MANPADS will make air Heli based re-supply untenable. Any decent SAM positioned just back of the Indian position at Dok...

Re: Latest Chinese boast: should we shiver or die laughing?

^^
Agree with RV on all points.

With a single and highly risky entry point, no maneuvering space and no were to run or hide the Chinese formation on the plateau is like fish in a barrel.
