Will T-90 tanks be able to pass: the Indian military has collected data on bridges and roads near the border with China

Indian military engineers have completed the study of bridges and roads that lead to the disputed region of Ladakh with China. This study was required due to the need to obtain new data on the maximum mass of military equipment designed for infrastructure facilities.


Reportedly, the data on bridges and roads in the area had not been updated for more than 10 years, so it was decided to conduct new studies and clarify the information.

The main goal is to find out whether the bridges in the Ladakh region will be able to withstand the passage of a convoy of the main military tanks T-90 and other heavy equipment. It is noted that the objects under study showed resistance to loads up to 50 tons. Considering that T-90 tanks have a mass of about 46,5 tons, the equipment should pass without any problems for the road transport infrastructure - taking into account the observance of the distance.

Earlier, a "trial" unit with several T-90 tanks and army trucks was deployed to the Ladakh region.

New data on the ability of bridges and roads in the mountainous region to withstand one or another load, as noted in India, allow the transfer of additional forces and equipment to Ladakh. It is said that, in addition to additional T-90 tanks, 155-mm M777 howitzers, as well as armored personnel carriers, can be sent to the border area with China. They are planned to be placed on the shores of Lake Pangong.

Such plans in India are being voiced against the backdrop of statements that China should withdraw its military and equipment from the border.

Today, as Voennoye Obozreniye has already reported, the Indian media published a material where it was said about India's readiness to deploy French Rafale fighters to Ladakh. These combat aircraft are due to arrive in India on July 29th.

        Again talking about the advancement of troops into the disputed region?
        Hindus are suicidal. China will respond in a mirror image. But China's economy is more than three times that of India. And there is no such corruption as in India. It will be much cheaper for him, and he will have more troops. Not to mention the technical superiority.
        They would not tease the dragon ...

    I have an uncomfortable question: did they not know that they have a disputed Ladakh region with China? They have data from ten years ago ... There are no words ...

    They need light armored vehicles. "Octopus", "Vienna" ... Why T-90 in the mountains?

      Why in the mountains T-90?

      Light armored vehicles, of course good, but not that. All the same, a tank, as they say, a tank in Africa. On the other hand, the T-90 is one of the lightest main tanks in the world. This is not an abras, and not a leopard. Even the Chinese type-99 is almost 10 tons heavier.

    Tanks are not the best tool in mountainous and difficult terrain. Perhaps dig them in at strategic points and checkpoints. There is no operational space.

      Why dig in? To remove towers from Arjun and use as cannon pillboxes.

        Looked at photographs of the area. It looks like Afghan. The tank column is doomed. Kirdyk.

    Whatever the Indians do, they will still get rid of the Chinese if they start a fight. In a documentary interviewing a former Chinese soldier who took part in the India-China conflict, he recalled how Chinese soldiers bypassed the Indians through snowy mountains (like Suvorov through the Alps), and then they were ordered to give their rations to the captured Indians. Moreover, they sent the captive Hindus home in trucks, which were dragged into the mountains in their arms. The film said that then the Chinese troops could take Delhi on the move and the Indians expected this.

    Well, fool They will drive the T-90 to the seventh heaven and get a glorious "cauldron", all the tanks will be abandoned and lost there. It seems that our light tanks looked after, but no. If only our couple of generals-consultants were discharged. recourse

    Throughout history, these two countries have become famous for only one thing - the ability to breed.
    As for the hostilities, none of these characters in the wars fought from the word AT ALL, so the result will be clearly unpredictable. Unless, of course, the conflict begins at all.
    And for me, nothing will happen at all. So the media will make a noise, the border guards will fight in the disputed territories - this will all end! These tribes are not warriors, not warriors at all.
