Re: Nepal and Bhutan News and discussion

Nepal is benefiting from our generosity. We can play the game too. I'm sure we can dig up some old maps where some king few centuries ago conquered parts of current day Nepal and stake claim to that. We can lay claim to entire Terai region of Nepal too. In terms of economy, the Nepalese economy is ...

Re: India Border Watch: Security and Operations

I don't really see the usecase for a "light tank". We already have MBTs in the high altitude plains of ladakh. If we can get an MBT up there and we have sufficient numbers, why settle for a measly 105mm gun. Also, what's the efficacy of a 105mm on an MBT ? The defense against a light tank...

Thats a no-brainer when you have democratic countries on one side and other side is dictatorship or pseudo-democracies. Also beyond a certain point this rona-dhona gets tiring, especially when it is all scare-mongering. Had we employed a 105mm 33 ton tank, forum would have laughed off as stupid and...
