On 29–30 August, Indian Army personnel along with the Special Frontier Force (SFF) captured the Line of Control south of Lake Pangong Tso on the border of the Kailash Range for the first time since 1962. The Indian Army has already dubbed the PLA’s energy weapons reports as fake. China successfully used tunnel defenses against the Japanese in the Second Sino-Japanese War, Wietkong used the same tactics against the Americans in the guerrilla war in the 1960s and against North Korea in the Korean War.

The PLA has built tunnel aircraft for house aircraft at Lhasa Air Base and underground pens for nuclear ballistic missile submarines in the Hainan Islands in South China Sea.Along with the enemy, this tunnel will also protect you from the cold
According to the report, according to senior military commanders, the Indian Army has deployed large diameter Hume’s reinforced concrete pipes dug into the tunnels to shelter troops from enemy attacks and surprise the adversary in the worst case scenario. Reinforced concrete pipe has a diameter of six to eight feet so that soldiers can easily move underground from one place to another without coming in contact with enemy fire. The other advantage of the tunnels is that they can be heated and the troops can be sheltered from the very low temperatures and snow storms.
The ninth round of military talks between India and China is expected to be held soon to isolate and rear troops from friction points. Meanwhile, the Indian Army is also engaged in defense of any other type of PLA activity on LAC. Indian security planners are fully clear that the status quo restarts from the PLA, which began the entire build-up from May 2020 by relocating to the northern shore of Pangong Tso Lake. The PLA also exhibited aggression like Pangong Tso in the Galvan River Valley and Gogra Hot Springs near Kongka La.

Indian Army is defending LAC
Not only is the Indian Army defending the Ladakh LAC, but it is also keeping a close watch on the moves of the PLA in Central, Sikkim and Eastern regions, while the Chinese military continues to build military infrastructure in Tibet.
Indian diplomacy is also in no hurry to negotiate for the early withdrawal of PLA from East Ladakh. She believes that restoring the status quo is the only solution to be completed in the long run. An official said that the PLA is always like a staring match waiting to blink. But this aggressive strategy will not succeed with India.
