Indian Security Forces Requisition For 4-6 Satellites To Watch Over Chinese Military At The Border
As the Chinese army continues to build its forces along the Indo-Chinese border, the Indian forces have sought at least 6 satellites to watch over their opponents.
As Indo-Chinese tensions continue to rise at the border, India wants to keep a closer eye on the activities of the Chinese military, across the 4000 kilometres long Line Of Actual Control (LAC).
The Indian security forces have asked the central government to provide them with about six dedicated satellites to track the movements of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) of China.
The Chinese army mobilized more than 40,000 heavily armed troops along their side of the LAC. In what it called an exercise in the Xinjiang province, China started breaching into the Indian territory, taking the Indian Army by surprise in the Leh region and 14 other core headquarters.
While the Indian forces already have a few satellites to track their opponents, the defence sources have raised an urgent need to strengthen these capabilities and also reduce dependence on foreign associates.
Due to the secretive activities of the Chinese side, the Indian military took time to build its forces in Ladakh.
The Indian Ministry of Defence has meanwhile revealed that the Chinese army transgressed into the Indian side at multiple locations, creating a similar build-up of their troop and artillery, along the LAC opposite Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Sikkim and even Arunachal Pradesh.
