Re: India's Border Security with China and Pakistan-2020

Demchok is the only strategic location in Ladakh which can reduce PLA threat? Care to explain that.... Have you been to Demchok to understand the geography? Do you know what AD assets we have there? DBO road is already under threat. (PP14, Recent build up at Depsang la). Lake area is under similar ...

Fukche ALG is just about 30 km from Demchok, and the airstrip stops just feet short of the Chinese claim line, at least from what Google Maps suggests. Given the orientation of the runway, I doubt we can place it any closer to the border, lest our aircraft become sitting ducks for SAMs or AAA. But ...

If Modiji can push for construction of an airstrip there, half of the problems will be gone. A few defense systems...

Can't we do similar build up in Demchok area? What's stopping GoI from building good infra in that area?

It's very close to G219. Good choke point from our perspective. An airbase which can have 25-30 aircrafts. And few acres of army basecamp. There is a river close by which can provide water too.
