I was using tanks as an example!
Supply lines are the great unknown until war occurs. The Chinese learnt alot from Vietnam experience thus are more prepared. I am certain a senior Indian official or military man admitted Chinese infastructure is better on the their border. I am unsure about about the feasability of crossing the Himalayas but Arunachal Pradesh mountains are less difficult to pass then western Himalayas. There are transit points that can be taken by light armor, which China has. Once captured these passes heavy armor can be brought.
Any war will certainly be fought on Indian soil because Indias capacity to traverse the mountains is even more limited. Indian army is facing the western border. China has freedom to commit all forces who they got to fear from others taking advantage of situation. Just admit India is at the mercy of the dragon.
Just been reading Indian amy inventory. Diverse sources of precurment. Only thing I am impressed about is the diverse vocabulary Indians have because you do use unnecessarily grandoise language to detail systems. Semantics do not translate into capability.
