Indian Armed Forces deployed Apache combat helicopters to the border conflict region with China near Pangong Tso Lake in the Ladakh region.  This is against the backdrop of Delhi's demands for the withdrawal of Chinese troops from the disputed territory.

In the area of ​​the border conflict between India and China, Apache combat helicopters of the Indian Air Force were seen.  They made a demonstrative flight over a mountainous area near Lake Pangong Tso in the Ladakh region.  It is worth noting that combat helicopters of this type are very well suited for attacking the enemy in mountainous terrain.
However, it is worth noting that both sides have not yet used firearms and, especially, military equipment, during the conflict.  Both India and China are still trying to resolve the dispute through negotiations.  The Indian side is demanding the withdrawal of Chinese troops from the disputed territory, as well as the withdrawal of additional units deployed by the Chinese in the border areas.  In turn, China accused India of escalating the conflict and illegal construction in the disputed Galvan river valley.  Both sides are building up their military presence in the region, but have not yet taken decisive action.  Earlier, we reported on the deployment of Indian aircraft in the conflict zone.

Recall that the situation on the border between India and China began to tense up after a clash between the border guards of these countries in the area of ​​Lake Pangon Tso and a major fight in the border state of Sikkim.  Both sides pulled additional forces into the region.  On the night of June 15-16, a new clash occurred, during which, according to the latest data, 23 Indian soldiers were killed.  China's losses are unknown.  Both sides announced the withdrawal of troops in the conflict zone, but at the same time strengthen their military groups.
