  1. 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, HE
  2. Well, to put things simply, I'm glad to finally get this thread, as this will mark me being able to cover all aspects of the PLA in detail and to link them all up content wise, so away we go! Well, this thread will obviously deal about the 1 area that hasn't been covered yet, which is of course the Air Force and Airborne, a bit into the past, and most the present and future, without further ago, I'd like to start off with aircraft designs, with a majority focus on local designs, without further ado, lets begin shall we? The current primary air-to-air fighter - The J-10B Full fuel
  3. The Al Khalid derived from Norinco Type 90IIM MBT. It was in the early 90s, when India started to test their Arjun MBT. Pakistanis looked for a MBT design that could be produced by herself. Norinco provided their own Type 90IIM prototype, this is an MBT design which comprised many Western components, such as engine and transmission. There were 4 prototypes for Al-Khalid development, namely P1, P2, P3 and P4. P1 has a Chinese tank diesel engine with ZF LSG3000 transmission. P2 has a British Perkins CV12 Condor diesel engine with French SESM ESM500 transmission. P3 has a
  4. Note: I decided I'll make a separate thread about Taiwan at a later date so it's less cluttered. So yeah, I made a vehicle and vehicle weapons thread, might aswell make a small arms thread dedicated to the PLA too, while the focus is on the newest and upcoming generation, I may add some older designs when I feel like it. 11/28/14 Made some slight updates after receiving new information. So, let's start off with the 5.8x42mm round, which as you probably know, is the latest round issued to front line troops and, while it's in essence a SCHV round, Olifant and I have decided is suppos
  5. Note, apparently there's a limit to how much images you can post, so I just had to link some of them to actually be able to post this. So, continuing with the trend of adding threads about sections of the PLA, Including the PLAGF land vehicles and weapon systems, and one I'm working on regarding Infantry based weapons and systems, I'd like to continue this trend and talk about the PLAN and the Marines, a bit about the past, and the present and what to expect in the future, so here we go. (Side note, yes, expect a thread about the PLAAF and Airborne eventually.) Currently, China has the
  6. Anti-air bobcat design to take away driver's hearing in maximum efficiency SH11 155mm SPG
  7. http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/1348289-strategic-blackmail-of-us-by-china-may-be-approaching-expert-warns/ Some interesting commentary about the lack of concealment of the US land base nukes, and differences in China and Russia's approaches to strategic nukes. The US relies heavily on it's sub based and air based nukes as a deterrent.
  8. https://fas.org/blogs/security/2015/05/china-mirv/ Taking bets on how long it takes India to announce similar capability.
  9. http://www.popsci.com/china-builds-worlds-fastest-tank-gun-then-tries-hide-it 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
  10. If you're interested in speculation on high-level, Machiavellian international maneuvering, I highly recommend the China Matters blog. The post linked is one concerning Narendra Modi, the new Indian head of state. The long and short of it is that Narendra Modi is either a Hindu nationalist, or at least a fellow traveler. In my completely objective and unbiased assessment, Hindu nationalists are a bunch of creepy fascist assholes. The China Matters author isn't the only author with this opinion; see for example this piece from The Economist pre-election, which states that remaining wi
  11. Oh, the Philippines, you so crazy. 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?
