Beijing deploys 100 truck-mounted howitzers at high altitude areas as India-China talks fail

China's most powerful howitzers join northwestern exercises amid border tensions.

China has deployed 100 advanced and long-range rocket launchers at its high-altitude borders amid a standoff with India.

A source told Hong Kong-based South China Post that the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has deployed over 100 PCL-181 light and truck mounted-howitzers to ramp up its defence for the winter season.

The move has come after the Indian Army enhanced its deployment of M777 ultra-light howitzers at the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
