    You basically need mountain trained units for tasks like that. For example the Italians in WWI/WWII had special alpine units which had lighter weight equipment. In China the issue is even larger since those are the tallest mountains in the world. So even oxygen deprivation might become an issue. You need training camps where troops can get used to the 4000m altitude's oxygen levels and get drilled on how to survive in that sort of terrain before you even consider operations.

    They should have a detached unit structure for that specific terrain which is able to make their own equipment purchase choices. This should include clothes and even weapons. Some weapons might have issues with low-oxygen or freezing conditions. Other weapons, like high caliber cannon, might not be transportable.

    This is possibly an unmanned ground vehicle under development... It looks larger than anything unveiled thus far, including the systems shown at Zhuhai airshow.

    Flickr has managed to screw up my pro account while migrating to new servers. Flickr is now an independent company after being spun out of Yahoo. Unfortunately, many of my old photos may or may not be coming back.

    Former Chinese military chief of staff jailed for life over graft

    BEIJING: A former chief of staff of China’s military was sentenced to life in prison, state media said Wednesday, after he was swept up in President Xi Jinping’s ongoing anti-graft crackdown.

    Appointed to the People’s Liberation Army’s top post in 2012, Fang Fenghui was convicted of accepting and offering bribes, and having an unclear source of a huge amount of assets, official news agency Xinhua reported.

    A military court sentenced Fang to life in prison, stripped him of political rights for life, and ordered the confiscation of all his personal assets, Xinhua said.
    Fang was abruptly replaced in August 2017 amid a stand-off with India over a territorial dispute, and just days after he had met the US top brass to discuss North Korea.

    The general was transferred to the military prosecution authority on suspicion of bribery in January of last year, state media reported at the time.

    Fang was one of two senior generals who did not appear on a list of delegates to the Communist Party’s twice-a-decade congress in October 2017, sparking speculation he had run afoul of Xi’s anti-corruption campaign.
