The point of conflict and the end of the road are just 20m apart, it's the same thing. At the end of the road we just built a forward base. You see, the Indians take the word 'point' literally, you have to build exactly on the 'point' else it is ok, so Chinese can just build around this 'point' and it is ok
They have only this g-string left. The whole country of 1.3 billion need to have something for comfort.

Very smart of you to realize this.
India very stupid to build this base on the border at Doka La, a sliver of land next to a steep mountainside.
The supply lines are also built on precarious cliffs and narrow mountainsides.
All it needs is a few missiles to send the whole army base to its doom.
Very stupid indeed, no wonder IQ82.

New trouble for India: China occupies North Doklam, with armoured vehicles & 7 helipads

New visuals show PLA deployment is close to last year’s face-off point and hasn’t thinned down as Indian Army chief Gen. Rawat claimed last week.

New Delhi: Almost five months after India and China agreed to end their tense military face-off in the Himalayan region of Doklam, Beijing has almost completely taken control of the northern side of the disputed plateau, latest satellite images accessed by ThePrint show.

The new images show concrete posts, seven helipads, new trenches and several dozen armoured vehicles close to the point where the Indian Army and the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) troops were locked in a 72-day confrontation last year.

The discovery comes days after Army chief General Bipin Rawat said that China continues to have troops in North Doklam but also added that the deployment had thinned down recently.

However, new satellite imagery accessed by ThePrint from 10 December 2017 shows that the Chinese side is now well entrenched in the area, with heavy road building machinery still present close to the stand-off point.

The face-off was triggered last June after Indian troops prevented Chinese workers backed by the PLA from completing a road that would have given them fast access to the south Doklam area. The Doklam plateau is contested between China and Bhutan, with India also having a strategic interest in keeping the area demilitarised.

These are first images that show the extent of the Chinese deployment at Doklam – and indicate a likely permanent PLA deployment, retaining the capability to construct the contested road at short notice.

Troop strength

The PLA has occupied almost every nook and corner, if not every inch, of the northern side of the plateau. Google Earth imagery clearly shows a large number of troops and equipment in semi-permanent structures under camouflage.

There is at least one complete mechanised regiment of possibly ZBL-09 IFVs or infantry fighting vehicles. There is also a strong possibility of another mechanised regiment under camouflage nets.

Two major parking areas have been observed for tank transporters of smaller size, suggesting their use for mechanised vehicle transport. There are, in total, two regiments’ worth of tank transporters on the Doklam plateau.

There are more than a hundred large troop/equipment-carrying vehicles, or what the military calls ‘B-vehicles’.

At least four large bulldozers and four tippers have also been observed. This indicates a clear intention of pursuing the construction of the road beyond the contested point.

A large number of troops seem to have been kept in tents under very good camouflage, but certainly not good enough for satellite imagery not to spot them.

The observation tower

There is a very tall observation tower, at least two storeys high, constructed with cement concrete less than 10 metres from the most forward trench occupied by the Indian Army.

The elevation profile of this tower suggests that it can observe the entire Gnathang Valley from Kupup to Zuluk. The entire movement of the Indian Army beyond Kupup can also be very clearly observed by the PLA.

New posts

A large number of fighting posts have been created on almost every hillock on North Doklam plateau. These posts consist of double-layered communication trenches prepared for all round defence.

Numerous areas have been dug out, possibly to accommodate troops under camouflage at a later date. One of the dug-out areas is quite large, suggesting that the PLA will construct an extremely tall observation tower very soon.

Helipads

At least seven new helipads have been constructed with permanent cemented round bases. The diameter of the helipads is 25 metres, suggesting that the largest helicopters in the PLA inventory will be able to land here.

Road construction

New roads have been constructed to cover the North Doklam plateau. Work is in progress to widen existing roads. Most of the roads have communication trenches running along them.

The pics were shot by satellites in December last year?
How come the plants in the surrounding looked so green during the winter on the high plateau?

PLA doesn't even need to expend one artillery round. IA will do it all themselves.

Not sure where the newspaper got the satellite photos. Maybe the plateau is arid so no snow and the trees are evergreen.

Plantations have a naturally built-in clock, don't they?
Why there were still so many leaves on the plants apart from the absence of snow?
Not sure tho, but the images are from google maps/earth. You can zoom in and get the same thing.

They have only this g-string left. The whole country of 1.3 billion need to have something for comfort.

Only idiots will believe that status co has changed. No matter how much china's paid propaganda machine Scream, cry, shout, yell, bark, jump dance etc. Nothing has changed and nothing is gonna change. All those constructions are of pre Dec and are min 150mtr away from the disputed land.

We all have seen those Daily Chinese Soap, when India blocked them.

People shd be smart to understand, if China has really occupied disputed land, the amount of Pomp and Show it will do to show the world who is the real power.

India is very well prepared. And it sits on height watching all circus going on.:lol::lol:

In that case all is good, and India can go back to its deep slumber.
China building spree on flat and expansive own territory on Donglang Plateau is not changing the status quo.
You are right on that.
Pity the Indians don't have much space to build on their narrow sliver of land just adjacent to a steep mountainside.

Don't understand what you mean by "sits on height" when obviously it is the Donglang Plateau that have that advantage over Doka La that is practically perched on top of a down sloping precarious cliff.
Good that India has taken in good stead all this fortifying of Donglang Plateau into a fortress that dominates over all Indian forces at the border as well as the Siliguri Chicken Neck.

This way the Indians can concentrate on their cows and Hindutva and the Chinese can continue to earn billions more in trade surplus from the Indians.

LOL status quo has not changed except Indian Army retreated back to its border with tail between legs in August last year after an arse kicking in Ladakh.

Doklam was always Chinese territory of course but India tried to make it disputed between Bhutan and China and failed miserably. Now PLA completely militarized the plateau so the moment India makes one stupid move the artillery fired from the plateau will completely cut off India's chicken neck!
