    so far, one of the weakest military district is in that part of the country. in tibet, we only have some armed police units, and border guards. china has no interest about india.
    i think we have a mountain division somewhere there between tibet and xin jiang.
    but anyway, indian army is too weak, in 1959, our border guards kicked their elite troop butt, and a brigader general was taken prisoner, what a shame...........

    ****************

    we didn't and still don't know about indian army very much. but in the war, they thought they were pretty tough, and i think the reason i called them as "elite troop" is because, i remember one of the unit we crashed was an unit that fought in WWII and korean war (i might be wrong about korean war). and it's like they are pretty tough, they are british equiped, with good weapons and stuff. and the indian PM (don't his name in english) was pretty proud of this army he raised. i remember seeing him parading the troop before the war, and they thought the poorly equiped PLA border guards were easy to crash............

    India has the best high altitude infantry in the world, but her martial leadership is rather lacking, even today.

    That's unique, The Indian get training from British. And many of veteran involved in WW II. So if comparing with PLa during that time, PLA is nothing in experience. (PLA experince in Civil War and Korea War, The india is far experience than that, they involve in Asia, Western and North Africa Theatre during in WW II)

    you're kidding me, right? PLA, at that time, is probably one of the most experienced armies in the world. 10 continous years of combat, then Korean. The PLA leadership at that time consists of battle hardened generals who fought through 3 wars, and won.

    No I'm not kidding. I saw from different poin. Under the British Command The Indian officer fought in North Africa, Asia (burma n Malaya), and Europe. ts mean they officer who become the basic of India Armed Forces very rich in experience, bcoz they fight in 3 continent and they fought with Germany which have a brilliat General. I saw from point of this
    Of Course PLA winning 3 war with Nasionalist, IJA and Allied in Korea. But the 2 of them is 50% (IJA and Nasionalist with bitterness in guerilla war)

    I'm talking about command structure here. If you haven't noticed, there aren't many command-giving Indians in the British involvement during WWII.
