Is india clear for THAAD with Su30 in inventory as well S400 is coming ?
We'd have to give away S-400 if we opt for THAAD...US previously offered both THAAD & Patriot and most recently NASAMS as well but we still went ahead for S-400.

In terms of Excalibur shells and M777s, that was previously being considered as well...so no surprises there. Spike ATGM deal might still be on since Rafael & Kalyani group did setup a manufacturing facility in Hyderabad but that was cancelled favoring DRDO's Nag ATGM...this has been going back n forth though

More M777s? Situation is bad?
It's better to be safe than sorry and it'd be extremely foolish of us to trust the chinese and pull back our forces in entirety. Both sides have pulled back in most locations except for Galwan which is still being contested. Also in case of an armed conflic, chinese have an overwhelming rocket artillery force which couldn't even be matched by Uncle Sam

We even made emergency purchases after Doklam standoff and so did china. Our govt has always been in reactive mode after every major incident or skirmish

Did china issue any statement!! Both sides did not issue an official statement even after Doklam standoff. While both sides pulled back from most places, Galwan is still being contested afaik
