India and China: A Military Comparison of Two Asian Giants
As tensions rise between the two largest nuclear nations in South Asia, India and China, their military capabilities have become a significant topic of discussion.
In the early 21st century, maintaining peace, stability, and world order while protecting against terrorism and foreign invasions requires a strong military. Every nation is working to enhance its military capabilities and equipment to safeguard its citizens and maintain balance in democratic nations.
India and China, the two largest nuclear nations in South Asia with the world's largest populations, are both focused on increasing their military strength. With long coastlines and varying terrains, both countries are vying for power in the Indian Ocean and the Indo-Pacific. From the Himalayas to the Gobi Desert, both countries have a robust military presence to deter annexation of their territories. Although the two nations fought a war in 1962, they continue to have border disputes over Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh.
