Indian Navy might be deploying ships in South China Sea, and side with Vietnam. What will China's course of action be? Isn't that alarming?

I thought about writing an entry after I saw that, but I felt it was so outlandish that I didn't bother to. I really don't know what Indian Navy could do in South China Sea. If they try to start a war, it's going to end pretty badly. The balance of naval power between China and India has really shifted since 2005.

First, it really depends on how well India fulfill its claims...India always make great plans, then all these great plans suffers budget overshoot and delivery delays. In any case, first Indian Navy must set up a sustainable naval presence in Vietnam, which will certainly make things so complicated that Vietnam - unless their leaderships are idiots - will really need to think really hard about it.

Should a naval war break, Japan, vietnam, philipina, and India will unify to face against China. They all have fierce border disputes with China. Japan and philipina's arm progress are depending and will be depend mainly on USA, India is mixed, vietnam is supplied mainly by Russia. So their progression rate are predictable. The result depend on PLAN and PLAAF achievements, because these factor are inpredictable.

ROFL, sorry, but this forum is (usually) for reality, not fantasy.

I foresee this thread being closed in 3...

If kinetic actions break out in the South China Sea between China and one other party (Vietnam, PI, Brunei…, etc.), it would be a mono-a-mono affair and hostilities would be over quick, with diplomacy dragging on till the cows come home. All major powers, US, China, India, Japan, and ROK) would do all they can to tiptoe around each other; there would be lots of shouting, recriminations, finger pointing, and diplomatic mambo jumbo, but the big kids on the block will not throw punches at each other over China’s spats with Vietnam and The Philippians over some rocks.

Even though I think Indian's claim does not make sense, I recommend to close this thread. Soon it will be full of country bashing.

I really don't know what Indian Navy could do in South China Sea.
yes you do.

nothing!

any aggressive indian deployment to the south china sea would be anticipated and neutralized by the time it exited either the sunda or malacca straits.

similarly, i think the plan will have difficulty contesting the indian navy should they choose to enter the bay of bengal -correction: andaman sea- through the malacca straits (which i don't think they'll do in the event of conflict). the sunda strait route, in my opinion, would carry less risk.

of course, plaaf and planaf, more than likely, have fly-over options into the bay of bengal -correction: andaman sea- that india does not have into the south china sea. so, in the event of hostilities, they could project offensive air power into the bay of bengal -correction: andaman sea-, neutralizing the indian navy's capabilities, and, thereby, relieve the potential malacca strait choke-point.

Bay of Bengal is quite far from China's coast.. Or you mean PLAN is going to deploy the aircraft carrier?
