Let us assume China decides to attack India on all fronts of land, air, sea, cyber so these are the scenarios which will happen if you think realistically:
1. Land attack:
China has an army of 2.3 million soldiers and India of 1.3 million. In case of wars, the advantage always goes to defensive side in a ratio of 1:3(one soldier for defence is equal to 3 in the offence) and this ratio becomes 1:5 in hilly and mountainous terrains. So advantage India.
2. Sea attack:
To launch a massive sea attack on India which has 7 major seaports and many minor seaports is nearly impossible as it will require more than 5 carrier battle groups if we say the least. Considering China has only 1 operational carrier battle group it’s impossible to even with huge submarine force to block every Indian port.
The second thing which people should note is that nearly 80–90% of Chinese trade happens through Indian ocean. To attack China we don’t have to attack their naval ports we just have to block supplies to China which will cripple its economy and we can do that because Indian navy is considered the king of the Indian ocean. So advantage India.
In a battle of air forces numbers matter little as the experience of pilots and technology they possess matters in the 21st century. We already have fought 2 major air force wars with Pakistan (1965,1971) and our pilots every year practice with best pilots around the globe which Chinese lack.
So as long as Sukhoi-30Mki is there with India worry not, sleep tight. Even an F-22 can’t penetrate Indian skies and leave alone the Chinese planes( remember I am talking about defence only). So again advantage India.
4. Cyber/Space welfare:
If one sees the ranking of Chinese hackers compared to Indian hackers they rank pretty high but when these rankings are made they only consider the people who operate from the Chinese or Indian soil.
If you consider the most advanced nations and see the hackers who work for them, you will find a considerable number of Indian hackers raked among the top in the world.
So if one side launches a hack attack on other it will not be limited to Indian hackers serving from Indian soil, it will be an all-out war which is highly dangerous.
Next thing I want you to know is military installations are nearly impossible to hack even for genius coders as their security codes changes at very very fast pace. So in this field, it’s a tie as no one can say we have edge over other.
Please stop considering Indian army weak in front of China because of low numbers. It’s not the numbers that win you the war, strategy wins it and moral support of the population motives our men to fight to save our land from invaders.
5. India-China War of 1962
In 1962 when we lost to China that time troop ratio was in favour of China 8:1 still our brave soldiers did not surrender because we Indians believe better to die than face shame.
In 1967 there was a standoff between India and China where India defeated Chinese troops (300 Chinese soldiers were killed and we lost 75 brave hearts). So when Chinese media and ministry asks India to remember 1962, they themselves should remember 1967.
In Indian ocean our spy satellite, P-8i Poseidon and naval ships have tracked down 13 Chinese ships in last 2 months(these are figures of government real numbers are not shown due to secrecy) which shows how capable we are to track these ships and should rest any doubt on our capabilities in mind of every doubting Indian.
Listen Chinese, his name is “MODI” and not Nehru; It is 2017 and not 1962 so better mind your tongue.
