As per reports, India had moved its premier T-90 battle tanks to eastern Ladakh in late June in the repercussion of the Galwan clash between Indian soldiers and Chinese troops even as India and Chinese commanders started their long-drawn talks to disengage along the Line of Action control (LAC).
Following the bitter border standoff with China, the Indian Army deployed its armoured regiments and evolved the standard operating procedures to use the heavy machines more effectively at altitudes ranging from 14,000 feet to 17,000 feet in the eastern Ladakh sector.
The armoured regiments in Easter Ladakh have evolved their standard operating procedures to use their machines more successfully at altitudes ranging from 14,000 feet to 17,000 feet in the area. This has come into action more than a year after the Indian Army started deploying its tanks in a massive way in the region.
In spite of the disengagement at few locations like Pangong lake and Gogra heights, both sides continue to maintain troops in large numbers along the LAC. The Indian Army has also continued to strengthen its operations in these areas with tanks and ICVs to tackle any threat or challenge at these heights.
