China has deployed the latest long-range MLRS on the border with India

17

The situation on the line of contact between China and India remains difficult, the parties have not been able to agree on a mutual withdrawal of forces and assets. Accusations of creating tension continue to be heard on both sides.


India and China not only have not begun to withdraw their forces and assets from the line of contact in East Ladakh, but continue to deploy weapons on the approaches to it. According to reports, the PLA has deployed the latest multiple launch rocket systems in mountainous areas, capable of firing at a range of up to 500 km.

The Chinese Ministry of Defense does not disclose the location of the new system, but notes that the contact line is controlled by the new MLRS.

According to Chinese military experts, we can talk about a system of the PCL-191 type. The launcher of this complex is capable of carrying eight 370 mm missiles with a range of 350 km or two tactical ballistic missiles of 750 mm caliber with a range of up to 500 km.

China has already conducted practice firing of various MLRS in areas close to the contact line and India is well aware of this. The deployment of the new system should be a warning to the Indian military in the event of an escalation of hostilities.

According to the media, the conflict on the border between China and India cannot be resolved at the level of the commanders of the groupings; this requires a meeting of the leaders of the two countries, which is not even planned for now. Therefore, the conflict will continue for a long time and may develop into a more global one. Do not forget that both countries are "nuclear powers".

    the parties could not agree on a mutual withdrawal of forces and means. Accusations of creating tension continue to be heard on both sides.
    And what did the Indians assume after pulling up the USA, Great Britain, etc. will the Chinese withdraw troops? It's naive.

    eight 370 mm missiles with a range of 350 km or two tactical ballistic missiles of 750 mm caliber with a range of up to 500 km.
    It will be cooler than HIMARS.

      In terms of caliber and range, it is more abrupt and the "Tornado" will be.

        The tornado, in principle, could not launch the OTR.

          The Chinese OTR corresponds to the range of the Iskander. It's just that in our OTRK, in addition to ballistic and cruise missiles, are used. But the caliber is 370 mm. and a range of 350 km. , this is even further than the export Iskander.
          In addition, India may have a Smerch in service, but for a longer range there is a Bramos.

    Not schmogli agree ... there will be a point of tension.

    India has improved in quality lately, so I don't think the PLA has an advantage

      India has recently become qualitatively stronger,

      Yeah, and the PLA is just beginning to master muzzle-loading muskets. In terms of the rate of rearmament of the PLA "ahead of the rest of the world," the fleet will soon surpass mattresses at such rates of development.

        I was always confused by the quality in noak ...
        Yes, and what would rszo yes for 500 km? IT IS UNLIKELY, THIS IS ALREADY OPERATIONAL TACTICAL ...
        Do not forget that the Indians have access to the technologies of France, Israel, the USA, Japan ... Considering that they move IT and have strong mathematicians, they will develop these technologies

          You will remember Vishy Ananda. Sarcasm.

          India produces in cooperation what has already been produced (and at the price of the hoth it comes out). China has already riveted enough of its analogues and has already passed to an innovative stage - it develops, designs new generations of technology. China is 1 order of magnitude higher, I think. And on AI as well (remember the latest US sanctions against Chinese manufacturers of supercomputers, tests of a swarm of drones). But China will be alone, and against China, the striped ones can pull up.
          In India, cuts are still a weak point. Therefore, the effectiveness of modernization is initially less.

          MLRS for 500 km, this is something strange. It is impossible to calculate the accuracy with ballistics - without the seeker, without satellite support for the operation of this pepelats, this is an obvious fairy tale. Rather, it is still OTK.

          I agree. Plus discipline and hard work. We were once strong in this too.

    I wonder if these 8 missiles have a guidance system? for a simple MLRS 350 km is already a bit too much, without adjustment there will be a large spread.

    In a way, a "familiar" system! By the way, earlier in the first reports about the Belarusian "Polonez" with a Chinese "trace" it was stated that it would be a "bicaliber" system with "eres" in calibers of 301 mm and 370 mm! True, a little later only one caliber (301 mm) remained ... for now! I have repeatedly said that in Russia it is possible to create a multi-caliber missile system (such as MLRS) based on the Uragan-1M bicaliber system! Taking into account the peculiarities of the Uragan-1M launch containers (blocks), it is possible to add 220-mm, 300 mm and 122-mm ammunition to the 400-mm, 600-mm calibers ...

    China is showing toughness and decisiveness. With its superiority in the field of economy and armaments, China provokes Indians and its other neighbors to rapprochement with the West. A broad anti-Chinese aliance is being formed ...

    The military of both India and China will speak long and menacingly in order to please a certain part of their electorate. And the bankers and industrialists of both India and China have worked and will continue to work without loud statements. Money loves silence ... Look at the statistics on mutual financing of projects in India in China and China in India for the last 10 years ...

    You have not read the note carefully. This system is duplex. Or 2x4 370-mm MLRS missiles with a range of 350 km or 2 OTR caliber 710-mm with a range of 500 km. Or one block with 4 RS and 1 rocket
