Seeing India implicated in Corona, China hatched a conspiracy on the border
When India was reeling from the horrific havoc of the Corona virus, China reorganized the Western Theater Command of the People’s Liberation Army. In which the Xinjiang Military District, deployed in the security of the border with India, was armed with deadly weapons such as new fighter aircraft, cannon, tanks, rocket systems. Traditionally, China did not give much importance to the region compared to tensions with Taiwan, but now the circumstances have changed rapidly. After the Galvan military conflict, the People’s Liberation Army has rapidly upgraded the Xinjiang military district. Not only this, China has also replaced the commander in command of the army in this area. Lieutenant General Wang Kai, who was now the commander of the elite 13th Group Army, considered the most feared of the Chinese Army, has been given this responsibility. This elite force is known as Tigers in the Mountains, who are adept at fighting in mountainous areas. Since then, it has started to be feared that China is not planning to cheat India again.

As per Chinese media CCTV reports, 10 units of the new PHL-03 multiple rocket launchers have been deployed near Ladakh. Each of its units consists of four crew members. It has 12 launcher tubes of 300 mm. Whereas, in response, Pinaka Multi Barrel Rocket Launcher System has been deployed by India. Pinaka is basically a multi-barrel rocket system. With this, 12 rockets can be fired in just 44 seconds. A battery of Pinaka system consists of six launch vehicles, along with a loader system, radar and link with network system, and a command post. A 1×1 kilometer area can be completely destroyed by a battery. Mark-I has a range of around 40 km while Mark-II can be targeted up to 75 km away. The Mark-II version of the Pinak rocket is designed like a guided missile. Navigation, control and guidance systems have been added to it to increase the range and also accuracy. The missile’s navigation system is directly connected to the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System. With the latest upgrades, the Mark-II can play an important role in ‘network-centric warfare’.
