    In this thread, we shall discuss about some mathematical abstraction - "Total war between India and China in 2020". No merci, no peaceful negotiations, no threaties. In the result of war only one of them will remain. Fight is one-to-one, all other countries are neutral (really neutral).
    I don't know reasons for such war, but @Indx-techs will help me.

    So, what are your opinions about that abstract war?

    Lets exclude Nukes just to make it more fun.

    By looking at the below map it is obvious that the land and air war would take place in the Himalaya's.

    The naval war would take place in the Bay of Bengal because a lot of China's shipping and naval supply routes pass through there. Without a doubt the Indians have a huge advantage here.

    What is the objective of this conflict? Is it complete and total conquest of each country?

    I'm unable to discover a reason of war.

    Well, it's time of my office. So, I'm going. I will post my opinion in evening today.

    Yes.
    You need at least 1 soldier to control 100 civilians in captured cities.

    At best, we can compare our projected military strengths in 2020 where India is catching up these days.
    Our relations are yet to fall to that worse, no reason spoil each other.

    Of course, we can. It can be interesting, but not very matter. "Army of peace time" have only one goal - to die in the battle for Himalaya and Tibet, protecting mobilisation of "Army of war time".
    To control enemies territiry both sides need at least 100 million soldiers. And to supply this army you need to build (at least) railroad throw Himalaya's and Tibet. Say me, how much time will need India to build such road?

    It is just a mathematic task, nothing more.

    Nobody is going to have 100 million soldiers, it's a war of interests, 2 possibilities:
    1. India & China will either become each others' closest partners.
    2. Either China will be Democratized or India will become a communist state in end. It's more going to be an ideological war as income & living standards of people of both countries go up and they start thinking politically.

    As I know, both India and China can conscript about 200 millions of adult males. But you will have a problem with weapon to them and suppling them (throw big mountain barrier).
    What does it mean? It mean, that you have very little chances on the seriouse war with China. Of course, there can be some diplomatic actions, some local (very local) conflicts, but there will be nothing serious. We are keeping calm about potentional conflict with China becouse, there are forests between our central region and China's most populated region. But mountains are much more better barrier. Australia have more chances to attack India that China.
