Recently, the Indian Army has deployed Bofors Anti-Aircraft Guns along the Sikkim border, to tackle any further actions initiated by China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA).
Although, conflict along the India-China border might have decreased but the army is not ready to let its guard down.
With the deployment of Bofors Anti-Aircraft guns, the Indian Army has forwarded it’s shield, warning the Chinese Army to terminate any further trick against the nation. It is thereby ready to foil China’s any further evil designs.
Besides, Bofors Anti-Aircraft Guns, Arjun Tanks have also been deployed at the high altitudes.
Army has deployed Bofors Gun at over 12,000 ft in Sikkim. These are the same guns which unleashed any encroachments arriving from Pakistan during the 1999 Kargil War.

It was used with particular success in the defence of London at the time of the German air raids during the Blitz.
