    I think not only you would need Anti Tank Weapons like NAAG and Javelin but you should also focus on inducting Medium Weight Tanks like the one being made by Turkey for Indonesia and also Anti Tank Vehicles such as these

    That shall be a case for any envisaged offensive operations if needed to be carried out into Tibet :)

    A very far stretched idea and indeed a significant stretch of imagination will be needed in that scenario.

    The best bet remains an upgrade in the number of mobile ATGM teams, something which PA has done in terms of HAT and LAT teams, to counter any buildup of armour (if PLA is foolish enough as the axes of advance of armour is significantly constricted in space and depth in the terrain under question).

    Countering i am not sure. There would be some long range planning that needs to be done to mitigate the threat. But as of now if we want to be prepared to contain the threat, we need a crap load of ATGMS, and Helinas on the LCH.

    The Spike NLOS is a Israeli-made multi-purpose, electro-optical missile system manufactured by the Israeli Company Rafael with a real-time wireless data link for ranges up to 25km. The Spike NLOS weapon system is a member of the world renowned Spike Family.

    The Spike NLOS weapon system can be operated in either direct attack mode or mid-course navigation mode based on target coordinates. These modes enable the defeat of long-range hidden targets with pinpoint precision, damage assessment and the obtaining of real-time intelligence.

    Spike NLOS can also be supplied with various warheads especially suited to urban and high intensity conflicts (heat, fragmentation, PBF, PBF/F).

    In a mountainous area, such a system is of no use. LOS is less than 3 kms in key choke points. Not to mention radio signal loss due to terrain.

    This applies to any other weapon options too. Vehicle and instruments have to improved as per the altitude requirements. Being lighter and agile will give it high advantages to NAMICA like carriers.
    It don't need to line of sight to get the target information and its range is unparalleled even compared to Nag or Hellfire like systems.
