indian army preparation high attitude area in eastern ladakh lac dispute , showing strength of army in ladakh! Tank regiment ready for operation in inaccessible areas, see how is the preparation?
In the midst of the ongoing India-China tension in the eastern region of Ladakh, the army is engaged in further strengthening the security system. A year ago, the army started a program of deployment of tanks in these areas. A year later, now the entire tank regiment is ready to conduct operations in this area.
The personnel of the Tank Regiment have further developed their standard procedures for operating machines at altitudes ranging from 14,000 feet to 17,000 feet. Last year, the Indian Army began the process of deploying T-90 Bhishma and T-72 Ajay tanks as part of Operation Snow Leopard to counter Chinese aggression and give a befitting reply.

These tanks have also been deployed since last year and gradually they continued to practice fighting at a height of thousands of feet. An army official told ANI- “The army has spent its life in the minus -45 degree Celsius temperature in these high altitude areas of eastern Ladakh. In such an environment, the Army has significantly developed its Standard Procedure (SOPs) for operating tanks while in these difficult terrains.”
Not only this, special commandos of the Air Force Garuda Force have also been deployed in these areas. Garuda Special Force personnel armed with Negev light machine guns, Tver-21 and AK-47 assault rifles have been deployed along the Line of Actual Control in eastern Ladakh. Along with this, the Russian-made Man Portable Air Defense System of the Air Force has also been installed so that, any kind of air attack can be stopped immediately.
Even though the Indo-China army has been withdrawn from Gogra and Pangong Lake, but a large number of forces are still deployed on both sides. The Indo-China armies had come face to face after a violent clash on 5 May last year. On 15 June 2020, there was a violent clash in Galwan Valley, in which 20 army personnel were martyred. Since then, the situation in this area worsened further and a large number of troops were deployed from both the sides.
