And another fire hoop demonstration, I think it's supposed to simulate if you have to rapidly exit a burning building in urban combat or similar scenarios, and to test your will.

Hey Mech, do you have any information on Chinese SF? Saw a guy looking for information on another forum about a Chinese SF unit called Arrow. Was wondering if you knew anything about them.

Chinese equivalent to Archer?

He's probably referring to the 38th Group Army Beijing, (第38集团军) who are also known as Arrow or Loud Arrow (Or, more famously locally as the "Ten Thousand Years Army", which is based on an old Chinese saying, and the fact that they've been around in various forms since the founding of the PRC.)

 

Basically they're noteworthy because, due to the fact they're Capital region protectors, they get really high priority for new gear distribution and are trained better then many other formations.

 

They have 2-3 Mechanized infantry divisions (one was rumored to be reassigned in the early 2000s, unconfirmed however), 1 dedicated Armored Division, 1 Artillery Brigade, 1 Helicopter regiment, 1 Chemical defense regiment and 1 Mechanized air defense brigade to call from.

 

Their unit insignia looks like this. (note that patches are no longer worn on uniforms outside of drills.)

It's pretty obvious by it's looks but, it's a laser blinder/dazzler and possibly a microwave based riot control weapon (sort of like the big humvee mounted versions the US were trialing a while back, just for less area effect in trade for a smaller package)

 

It's also being suggested that they're being designed for more, like experimenting with a weapon that can permanently fry electronic devices on infantry and those exposed on vehicles alike.

How seriously and by who? Actual engineers, or by "China greatest country!"/Ausairpower types in fantasyland?

 

It's not impossible (directional jammers have been showing up recently for security guards to "shoot down" drones) but I see a number of flaws in the concept. Range (HF can be easily jammed normally while VHF/UHF basically requires direct line of sight), that it would effect friendly equipment as much as enemy equipment and probably more so considering you're pushing enough power to burn up EMP-hardened equipment and your stuff is closer to the transmitter, and likewise the issue of RF exposure hazards for the operators.

Actual Enginners on the project. and AusAirpower is a shit website for anything related to the PLA and get shit wrong constantly (they're the ones who spread the bullshit that the Type-98/99 is "A T-72 lengthened by 1m", which goes against all the interviews of the deceased chief designer of the project, the fact the PLA never used the T-72 (and the T-72 was made around the time PRC-USSR relations were horrid), the Lineage of the previous Type80/85 design, media reports (state media or not, they list them all as "state media") and basically fucking everything.

 

Never list Ausairpower as a reliable source for anything Pro Chinese, or even Chinese at all ever. they're about as reliable as BlackTailDefense is on US armor.

From what I gathered from asking a Few people (Including Akula.)

 

-The design first emerged on the internet around late 2016.

 

-However, no person or company has actually claimed It's theirs publicly and nothing has leaked on it so, unless that happens, no one really knows anything about it. Not even the name if it has one.

 

Also, this thing, from the looks of it, it appears the JH16 design did infact win the trials for a new Police/SWAT SMG, seen here being posed in a photo op with a member of the Guangzhou SWAT. (Third to the right.)

      New high velocity 125mm tank gun reportedly starting testing for the Chinese military.  Not surprised that the data disappeared off the university website at all.
       
      Edit: 125mm/60? oO

      Could someone please explain to me how deliberately running a ship aground and then filling it with personnel on five-month isolated shifts like some sort of bizarre post-apocalyptic carnival is "asserting your authority" over an area?
    • By Khand-e
      So, basic introduction, to start off, we'll go with the latest backbone of the PLA Ground forces' Armored divisions, the ZTZ-96 G/A
       
      Basic specs.
       
      Crew: 3
       
      Weight: 42-45 tonnes depending on equipment and addon armor/era.
       
      Power plant: 1,000 hp liquid cooled Diesel engine
       
      Speed: 65 km/h on roads 45 km/h off road
       
      Range: 400km without external tanks
       
      Armament: 125mm L/48 main gun with autoloader similar to the Soviet 2A46 (8 rounds per minute rof), ATGM capable, based on Russian Refleks-M missile, also has HEI-FRAG, HEAT, and APFSDS ammunition choices, W-85 12.7mm cupola machine gun (not pictured in this photo), 7.62mm coaxial machine gun.
       

       
      Wow, such sharp looking, very armor.
       
      Capability wise, this tank was recently pitted against some modern T-72B variants in a Russian tank Biathalon, and while it was deemed better in Armor, Armament, and Electronics, it lost out in mobility due to the underpowered engine, this killed all 730 and 780 hp engines in other ZTZ-96 G/As for the 1,000 hp engine.
       
      One interesting note: the boxes on the side actually contain equipment that interferes with the targetting systems of SACLOS missiles, aswell as laser designators, rangefinders and guidance systems, these can be seen when the tank is viewed from above.
       
      -----
       
      The heavier, far stronger pride of the ground forces.
       
      ZTZ-99 (A2 variant pictured.)
       
      Crew: 3
       
      Weight: 54-60 tonnes depending on variant
       
      Powerplant: 1,500 hp turbo charged liquid cooled diesel engine
       
      Speed: 80 km/h on roads, 60 km/h off road
       
      Range: 600km without external tanks.
       
      Armament: ZPT98 125mm L/52 autloaded gun with 8 rounds/minute rate of fire (some sources quote later variants at 11 rounds per minute), higher pressure tolerances, redesigned autoloader and other improvements, this allows it to fire improved ammunition such as far more deadly APFSDS then other 125mm autoloaded gun platforms in the PLA's inventory, it can still fire all other types of rounds aswell, W-85 12.7mm cupola machine gun, 7.62mm coaxial machine gun.
       
      Armor: While the exact thickness and composition isn't known, It's known from cutaway photos and some are pubically released information to have a hard spall liner as many other tanks these days, the actual armor composition itself are plates of high strength/toughness maraging steel sandwiching materials such as high hardness Aluminum oxides, aswell as layers of Graphene and unknown materials from there (likely something very dense), the boxes on the side of the turret and on the pike nose on the front are likely addon ceramic armor as opposed to ERA as originally believed and may be hollow to act as spaced armed, aside from the physical armor package, the tank also features ERA, NERA, and active defense systems that jam or alter the trajectory of various types of guided projectiles.
       

       
      So, this is the actual "elite" tank of the PLA to supplement the cheaper 96's, Originally it started out with a modest $2,500.000 production cost, however, as time grew on and they kept advancing it to the lastest standards of a top tier MBT, that sort of spiraled out of control a bit, coupled with the fact that the PLA ground forces don't get the same funding as the PLAAF and the PLAN, and the result was that, while the 99A2 has turned out to be a beast in it's own right, it simply isn't feasible price wise to give every tank crew a Type 99A2, however this is probably one of the most underrated 3rd generation MBTs as it's rarely talked about and theres a fuck ton of misinformation about it (mainly that it's a clone of the T-72/T-80 which is completely wrong) and well, it's goddamn pretty, and that counts for alot.

      A special thank you.
      I'd like to personally honor a few posters who have aided me and provided very solid data and posting in this thread, without them this thread and the other PLA related threads would be far less interesting. These should be the first people in here to ask about something.
      In no particular order.
      JimZhangZhang, Lightning, Akula_941, and U-47.
      And of course LoooSeR for keeping content in this thread when I wasn't able to.
