But recently Chinese military expert totally exposed the training and capabilities of Chinese soldiers According to Zhang Wenping’s military analysis, “in a comprehensive comparison, the Indian Mountain Division and the Special Forces have the rich practical experience and strong individual combat strength.Also he added Chinese military are not well trained and don’t have combat experience in Mountain warfare.”
About a third of the strength of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) are conscripts who serve in the army for two years and then go into the reserve. PLA soldiers do not have serious military training.
Even if we lool the recent clash between Indian and China, F4 ridgeline has been captured by IA in a daring counterattack by our SFF boys. The PLA literally ran away without giving a fight. Status quo of May 2020 has been reinstated. Chinese FM have been asking us to go back to F1. Also, they lost two soldiers and many captured. So now you can imagine how well trained are they.
