1800's , the Russian Empire is at the highest power , perhaps after the conquest of Central Asia , and after a successful attack in Afghanistan , make a large opperation to conquer British India ( off course starts war with the whole British Empire ) .
Did they have any chance to win ? Other major powers like France , Germany , Austria , are neutral or allie with any of them ?

Before you ask this...please provide your proposals on how Russia could move and army into India.

Britain certainly believed Russia was a threat to India. That's the only reason they were in Afghanistan. Even after losing over 4000 soldiers in the retreat from Kabul in the First Afghan War, they later came back to retake Kabul.
