Now if I understood you correclty at the end, the main obstacle boths sides will be dealing with are the canals (Pakistan has them as well) with any enemy having to breach them to get past them and into better terrain. I know India got past them in 65 and into Pakistan, but that was the era before ATGM's made the dismouts a true threat to tanks past 300m or so. It is also rummored the Indian "Cold Start" calls for puntive actions inside Pakistan.
The question thus becomes how? Given the similiar military traditions and similar equipment one can surmise that the application at the tactical level will be fundamentally the same for both sides. Thus how would you breach the canal? I know the text book answer, if its to big to assualt bridge and or two deep to ford/swim then push the infantry across, support them with fires and bring in the engineers with the pontoons/ferries, and bailey bridges. But this involves getting to the canal in the first place. How would you defend it, and how would you supress and then breach that defense?
