Chinese target in Tibet are at best 150-200km (mostly sub 100 km) from the Lac. The logistic lines and nodes connecting to Tibet are 500km from Border (Hotan) or 1000km in East. We have many missiles that cover that and I hope in numbers. In a missile dual in my opinion we can dish out more pain tha...

I understand the AUW (All up weight) argument - It is like saying in a competition, minimum marks to qualify is say 60% (which is all right, one can understand), but if you get sat 95+/100 you are disqualified (hard to justify). If you do not need AUW over 5T, don't load ALH over 5T. The only argume...
