this system was made for Taiwan I believe.
But ozranger said the 400 kilometer version was specifically designed for India due to the very high altitude and therefore thinner air, allowing the missiles to travel further?

it has range of 350km. but even at 300km it would cover most of Taiwan. India aint important enough to specifically design against.

The original web page in Chinese says the 400km range, which is 100km increase, was made up by thin air and high altitude on the existing 300km (or 350km as said by others) model when being fired from the plateaus. To be honest, those rockets are practically ballistic missiles at low cost with high precision terminal guidance. So the 100km increase gained by thin air and high altitude won't downgrade its accuracy.

PCH-191 is well known as mainly developed for hitting targets in Taiwan. It would be very interesting if they can test it on some Indian targets.

I thought I have seen the pics of this PLA's new barrack compound somewhere, possibly in PDF or elsewhere, either in pictures or in a video but just can't recall where :-)

Here's some info:

From some Indian blogger specializing in the sat. image analysis, d-atis☠ @detresfa_ on 2020.10.07:

Part of #China's developing military infrastructure network in #Tibet, the PLA recently inaugurated new barracks near the #India #China #Nepal junction, looking to boost border defense the facility sits roughly 100 km from the Indo-Sino border & has begun accommodation.

Additional, closer look picture posted by a netizen at the OP, said to be already built several months ago.

Some commented that the barracks have some pressurized facilities... and in consideration to its high altitude of nearly 4,000m above the sea level, it may make sense.

Location: at the Zanda County, Ngari Prefecture, in the extreme west of the Tibet Autonomous Region, SW China.

At over 5,000 meters above sea level in Ngari Prefecture, Tibet Autonomous Region, frontier troops began training in daily life using a science fiction kit of "individual exoskeleton". Soldier can carry about one adult's weight with the system while avoiding injuries to one's waist and legs.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

From Henri Kenhmann at East Pendulum on 2020.12.15:

Chinese army border guards in Ngari region, Tibet, start equipping the passive exoskeleton for supply missions.

The Institute 208 of the NORINCO Group, for its part, received a 2nd order from the army for the mountain troops in December.

A new batch of light weight Z11B is joining PLA services soon, probably Army Aviation (LH), for scout and liaison duties.

World's Most Advanced Long-Range Rocket Launchers: Chinese WS-2D and PHL-03 Rocket Launchers


WS-2D, test site: ranged up to 450 kilometers with two-stage rocket (2:05). Pinpoint accuracy with BeiDou satellite positioning technologies for guidance. It is actually an array of missiles. China can deploy these rocket launchers along its coastlines against any invading naval force (and there is no chance to survive for any warship including aircraft carrier dare to come that close). China is no longer making Type 022 missile boat. Less needed because now there are WS-2Ds.

PHL-3 rocket launcher (2:40) at training field!
Using BeiDou satellite guidance and positioning. Using UAV (drone) to collect all weather information to calibrate and calculate pinpoint accuracy of projectiles. This system is ranked top in the world! The massive fire power can annihilate an entire city in a few minutes!

They are clustered together as a unit with FOUR special vehicles supported: Electronic Reconnaissance Vehicle, Command Vehicle, Radar Vehicle, and Electronic Warfare Vehicle. The multi-units can be deployed. The Electronic Reconnaissance Vehicle searches for targets and the launchers will automatically adjust the level and direction accordingly, aim to lock. No manual effort is needed in the processes! The Command Vehicle will analyze and verify all the info and calculations, then syncs with all the launchers and give order to fire. Each launcher can also operate autonomously, depending on battle field condition.
