60

The Indian army against the background of the aggravation of the situation in the disputed territories near Lake Pangong Tso builds up a fleet of main combat tankslocated on the border with China in the Himalayas.


As the Defense Blog explains, the escalation of tension in the Ladakh region has been ongoing since early May of this year. Over the past weeks, both countries have mobilized thousands of troops with armored and combat equipment attached to them. aviation.

It turned out to be captured that the T-90MS and T-72M1 MBTs, which were transported by train to the border, to the area known as the Actual Control Line (LAC) were captured.

At the same time, Beijing, amid growing tension, is transferring its own forces to disputed lands, in particular, airborne units with armored vehicles are deployed in the bordering highlands of the Tibetan plateau. In the photographs you can see MBT Type 96A.

The PLA Air Force’s airborne brigade of thousands of paratroopers has recently flown from the central Chinese province of Hubei to an undisclosed location on the plateau of Northwest China in just a few hours

- Explained China Central Television (CCTV).

A brigade from the 74th Army Group of the PLA Southern Theater of Operations was sent to the same area from Guangdong Province.

Some military observers attribute these events to the situation on the border between China and India.

        By the number of tanks you can determine the real plan of the parties, and specifically: Defensive or Offensive operation. Offensive operations must have triple superiority.

            Seriously? Teach materiel colleague.


            Major General Hans Dörr, Chief of Staff of the 17 Army Corps of the Wehrmacht. In his book “Campaign to Stalingrad,” he cites the following data for August 1942:

            According to the Eastern Armies Division of the OKH Intelligence Directorate, by mid-August 1942. Russia had the following forces:
            407 rifle divisions, equal to 287 German
            178 rifle brigades, equal to 142 German
            39 cavalry divisions, equal to 33 German
            165 tank brigades, equal to 63 German
            Total 789 compounds, equal to 593 German

            Below, Dörr compares the formations on the Eastern Front. 254 page div = 134 German, 83 page brigades = 46 German, 13 cav. Divisions = 7 German, 68 tank brigades = 34 German.

            The Wehrmacht had only one cavalry division. Just Dörr gives comparative data. As a result, he equates 418 formations of the Red Army to 222 German formations.

                You have already written, dear!
                Field Marshal Erich von Manstein. One of the most outstanding German commanders of the Second World War. He started the war against the USSR as the commander of 56 tank corps, the last post was the commander of Army Group South. It must be assumed that this general knows what he is writing.

                Here are the lines from his book "Lost Victories" (we are talking about the summer of 1943): “The impact force of one Soviet tank corps corresponded approximately to the strength of the German tank division (!). The mechanized corps was superior to the German motor division, as there was a tank brigade in the corps.”
                Manstein compares the Soviet corps with the German division, but not the division with the division.

                Oberst General Franz Halder is the chief of OKH, i.e., speaking our language, the chief of the General Staff of the Ground Forces until the fall of 1942, in fact, the leader of the Wehrmacht military operations on the Eastern Front, the third most important figure in the German Armed Forces after Hitler and Keitel .

                Here is his war diary. Record of August 28, 1941: "... 110 enemy divisions (in terms of fighting efficiency they correspond to 65 of our divisions), in the second line and in the rear 40 ...".

        It is a great temptation for the People's Republic of China to play with muscles and, perhaps, to conduct a battle. It hurts to hit and rejoice ... However, the Indians, whatever many would say, are not whipping boys at all. Army Special Forces of Russia and India regularly train together. The feedback from our specialists about the Indians is very favorable. So it’s very likely to break the PLA. And it will be a loss of prestige over the whole world. So they will stand, stand, muscles-divisions will play in front of each other, and they will calm down.
