I have a sneeky feeling that a riposte is in works and thus the large Chinese movement along the entire LAC. Game of Brinkmanship under this facade of, "no bullet fired in 50 years." We dont have the option to blink and Chinese dont want a fight. Outcome almost predictable.

There is only about $200 difference between the cost of AK203 and SIG716. So the extra cost to say for five lakh rifels would only be 100 millions.
