Indias Ministry of Defense announced on September 30 that it successfully launched an extended range version of the Brahmos supersonic cruise missile, which can hit targets more than 400 kilometers away. An Indian official later said that the test launch of the extended range version of the Brahmos missile is of great significance, paving the way for India to develop the next level of supersonic long-range tactical cruise missile. Brahmos missile is equipped with liquid fuel booster, with a range of more than 500 km.
According to the report, these new technologies can be used to develop solid fuel ducted ramjet (SFDR) technology for air-to-air missiles and long-range supersonic cruise missiles. DRDO conducted two related tests on May 30, 2018 and February 8, 2019. An Indian expert said: the new cruise missile will be equipped with solid rocket boosters and use SFDR technology to achieve supersonic flight. The range of the missile can be determined according to the target of the mission.
According to the Indian defense news website on September 29, the Indian army is stepping up the procurement of domestic Brahmos supersonic cruise missiles, intrepid subsonic cruise missiles and Akash air defense missiles. According to the report, this is the main modern missile that India relies on to confront China. Among them, the maximum range of Brahmos missile is about 500 km, and the maximum range of intrepid missile is more than 1000 km. However, Chinese experts believe that Indias massive purchase of various weapons can be described as medical treatment in case of illness. Previous experience and lessons from the Indian army have proved that there is a problem of compatibility between weapon systems from different sources, and it is difficult to grasp the finger and make a fist.
Earlier, Wei Fenghe, State Councilor and Minister of defense of the member states of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the Commonwealth of Independent States and the collective security treaty organization, held a meeting with Indian defense minister rajnat Singh on September 4. Wei Fenghe said that the recent bilateral military relations have been seriously affected by border issues, and it is very important for defense ministers of the two countries to exchange candid views on relevant issues face to face. The cause and the truth of the current tension on the border between China and India are very clear, and the responsibility lies entirely with India. No inch of Chinas territory can be lost. The Chinese army is fully determined, capable and confident to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity. Both sides should earnestly implement the important consensus reached by the leaders of both sides and persist in solving problems through dialogue and consultation. It is hoped that the Indian side will strictly abide by a series of agreements and agreements reached by both sides, earnestly strengthen the control of the front-line forces, do not cross the current line of actual control, do not take any action that may cause the situation to rise, and do not deliberately hype and disseminate negative information. The two sides should focus on China India relations and the overall situation of regional peace and stability, make joint efforts and go in the opposite direction, promote the current situation to cool down and ease as soon as possible, and maintain peace and tranquility in the border areas between China and India.

In addition, the negotiations have been unable to achieve results, because Indias territorial claims are too far fetched. The Indian media quoted so-called government sources as saying that during the negotiations, the Indian side actually asked China to withdraw its troops from all hot spots, allowing the Indian army to freely enter and exit at more than a dozen patrol points previously blocked by the PLA.
Unfortunately, China is not the late Qing Dynasty, but one of the most powerful countries in the world. Therefore, in the face of Indias advance, China has no choice but to step up its combat readiness deployment and prepare for war. According to Indian media reports, Chinas Air Force bases on the Sino Indian border have doubled since the confrontation between Donglong and India. Among them, four new heliports were built after the border deadlock broke out in Eastern Ladakh in early May.
