[RWO] Wakhan Corridor - Part 2
CimaleX & Kommiekat
February 2014 - Wakhan corridor:
Wakhan Corridor is commonly used as a synonym for Wakhan, an area of far north-eastern Afghanistan which forms a land link between Afghanistan and China.
The Corridor is a long and slender panhandle or salient, roughly 140 miles (220 km) long and between 10 and 40 miles (16 and 64 km) wide.
Since last January the Chinese government wanted to stop once and for all the continuous intrusions into the Xinjiang region from the Tegger Mansu area in the Wakhan corridor, these activities are claimed as illegal and potentially dangerous by the Chinese, while Afghan authorities deny anything more than ordinary movements of livestock and traders from the tribal areas of the corridor to the bordering Xinjiang region.
Smugglers, common criminals and drug traffickers make their trips from the corridor to Xinjiang under the eyes of the Afghan authorities (according to the Chinese) causing more than a headache to the central government in Peking, last year Chinese border police arrested a dozen or so of terrorist linked to the Taliban insurgency network, and asked Afghan government and ISAF to intervene immediately.
ISAF and NATO responded involving the Afghan government, who simply ignored the Chinese requests and asked instead China to open the border in the Wakhan Corridor for economic reasons, or as an alternative supply route for fighting the Taliban.
Tired of their incompetence the Chinese leaders asked PLA to occupy a little strip of land in an area named Tegger Mansu, taking control of an old but still functioning oil rig. The Chinese claim the oil rig is used mainly as a support base for smugglers and traffickers, but the Afghan government deny this allegations.
Now the oil rig is occupied by a company of the PLA 191st Division - 17th mechanised Rgt, Afghan and CIA intelligence spotted well trained and equipped troops, supported by several offroads, trucks and APCs (ZBD-97, Type 99, Type 90 etc...)
Chinese authorities declare that now thanks to the Chinese military presence the disputed area is clear of illegal and potentially terrorist activities, but the Afghan president Karzhai wants the Chinese out of the corridor, and mobilised ANA (Afghan National Army) best units, among these the 207th Corps (Herat) – 1st Brigade from Herat, 2nd Brigade from Farah, and elements (two Kandaks) from Shindand (including commandos). A number of APCs and old MBTs (BPMs, T-55s and M-113s) plus several modern wheeled vehicles (armed Humvees and pickups) with a number of combat helicopters (Mil-17 and Mil-24) arrived in the corridor for the confrontation with the Chinese.
Operation Tegger Mansu Thunder is going to start.
