Aadi and I have started a series on PLA. In the first part, we cover the basics of PLA and its evolution. As we go along in the series we will cover other aspects and details of PLA. The information being gleaned is largely from open sources. If there is any input you feel that will improve the presentation or facts which we have got wrong, please point them out. We will be more than happy to correct our story. Ultimately we want to get it right for India and it’s armed forces.
