Delhi is the capital of India. It is an important place for politics, diverse culture and a vital place of business and trade. It is the heart of India. Delhi is situated at the bank of Yamuna. It is a city of Mughal art and architecture. The summers are very hot and winter is too cold with heavy showers in monsoon.
But modern armies have done away with this system of camp followers. They are thought to be an anachronism. We have however women recruited as soldiers and airmen to be along with the men. Definitely the women in the absence of ‘comfort women’ do add a feminine touch. But the fact remains that biologically a woman is unsuited to be a professional soldier.
The Air Chief himself perhaps was too numbed by the turn of events. In addition the fact that the IAF had never even had a practice exercise in hill operations, must have weighed heavily on the Air Chief. For this alone Air Marshal Aspi Engineer must stand in the dock as he headed the IAF at that time. Another point is the psychosis of fear that was built up about the capability of the PLAAF which was greatly exaggerated. In real terms the Peoples Army Air Force had outdated aircraft which could not operate with full payload from the airfields in Tibet because of the height factor of the airfields.

You may find that size and weight restrictions are much stricter abroad than they are at home. We’ve had to check suitcases in China and Europe that we routinely carry on at home. There is no use arguing that you always carry them on. Those airline personnel have the final say… and if they say to check it…. you check it. At least you have the proper identification on it.
Beyond the straight comparison between these two wheeled APCs is the fact that the People’s Liberation Army relies on the WZ-551 chassis to provide the variants for most of its other wheeled armored vehicles. In mountain or urban situations, India’s smaller Huffy, Tuffy and Ferret armored cars will prove much more flexible. China’s equivalent vehicles were phased out of service and have yet to be truly replaced.
