I am not Dhoti shivering at all. Looking for some deeper analysis. PLAA does have to maintain a higher proportion towards NOKO border, given that US fleet is there. In that sense their hands are tied (and maybe Modi trump are doing some jugalbandi). There the fight can easily escalate to bring in Japan and other players (not sure how/why Taiwan or Vietnam will join in). But discounting that (it is said that plaa is 2.2 million), I believe they have enough reserves in the indo-china border and ratio if at best we may have 2:1 advantage, and that's it (love to know more if you disagree, but please provide some detail unless this is just a hunch). Also there is nothing personal, nor you or I are going to decide if the war will happen, but being informed does not hurt.
I think more than the mere numbers, I suspect what Chinese have done is, they have neglected the indian border (except for blusters and some land grabbing) at the expense of fighting the war with the great seitan for Taiwan or NOKO or South China see. They are also under some restructuring along with RMA that is not yet complete, they are in more disarray than us. Most of their weapon that they have impressively developed could be great for east china, but maybe useless for the Himalayas.
We have prepared right for the 2.5 war (all RR battalion for the .5 war), new strike corp (this is also not fully raised though) and raised new formations in the last 10 years for these eventuality (is that right? I am saying from memory). Without going into details (twitter, chaiwalah and MSM etc.), This govt has been quietly preparing for it for the last 3 years - Objective, strategy, tactics, Intel and weapons (though big ticket items are surely lacking, but this kind of war they are not a big help, to overwhelm the PLAA from air you do not need more than 2 SQ of SU30MKI, they will do long distance interdiction, destroying, C4I centers, logistic choke holds etc. and we have these many). SO we may have an advantage, and it shows where we are calling the shots in the current standoff.
Also you do not expect Modi/Doval/Rawat combo to make a blunder and go unprepared. If you are following news, the IA and IAF and IN chiefs and other high level officials have been saying to its men that be ready for it. We have a plan, hopefully the strength to pull it through, where PLAA seams like us in 1962, just bumbling and rhetoric. I wont be surprised if the result of this standoff/war is just the apposite of 62.
Having said that, can someone give a little more primer, what are the fronts, men/division committed to that, logistic constraints etc. Please all from open sources.
