The plan follows the recent release of the US Defence Department’s annual report on China which said Beijing had moved its new advanced, longer range CSS-5 missiles closer to India’s border and developed contingency plans to shift airborne forces to the region at short notice.
The report cited sources in India’s Defence Ministry as saying New Delhi was considering the deployment of the 2,000 km range Agni-II and 350 km range Prithvi III surface to surface ballistic missiles for this purpose…… India mulls nuclear-capable missiles near China’s border – Tibetan Review

  1. So India wants to place missiles near Tibet. In fact India has missiles capable of reaching Beijing.Are the Indians no naïve as to expect China will be a sitting target?
    The PLA need not lob nm at India. All the Chinese need to do is mine the rivers in Tibet. That will stop water from going down south.Just imagine the Brahmaputra as well as Ganges drying up.This is beeter than having nuclear war .
