    So that the Chinese do not "inadvertently" from the anti-aircraft missile system, rise to a height of 8500 meters? So the Chinese can lift fighters if that.

      They have Buki (HQ16) deployed and Torah (HQ17). Well, and even if you believe the Indians, they pulled a bunch of J-16 / J-11 to the surrounding bases.

    Now, if Russia would assume the role of arbiter and peacemaker. Moreover, she convinced both sides that escalation was unnecessary ... This would be a deafening political victory for Russia. To spite overseas.

      Often conflicts / wars arise with growing domestic problems. The pandemic, I think, has contributed.

    Both India and China strive to master the latest military technologies, but in fact it turned out that they had to fight in hand-to-hand combat ... There will be no serious war between India and China, both countries do not need it, but "hand-to-hand" ones will continue without opening fire. Maybe it will cost us them to sell them a product KDU-I and KDU-K (improved oak stake), instead of bamboo sticks laughing
