    Anyway, I think Chinese made products are hating on for little reason. Many Americans "hate" Chinese products becuase "they are from the Chinese" and "they stole our jobs" etc

    The Chinese didn't steal US jobs... US companies sold the production rights to the lowest bidder... and Chinese organisations undercut you.

    If US companies weren't so greedy they would pay more in wages and taxes and be prepared to be sued if some worker falls into a machine and is killed or maimed.

    With Chinese workers you pay $5,000 dollars to the family and you never have to worry about it again.

    Asian employees are being hated because they are eager to do double the workload for half of the salary.

    If you are born in poor family, you are usually hard-working and do not fear the risk of heavy workload.

    They "stole" the jobs simply by doing that job better.

    Never said they did... Just that the American population thinks so.

    Yep, they are as bad as you can get... - And I say this as someone who wants to abolish the minimum wage in general...

    Can't tell for sure, but at the end of one of those numbers was an H, which would be a cyrillic letter rather than a Chinese one...

    A Chinese railway composition loaded with tanks and other vehicles has crossed into Russia. The Chinese hardware is for the upcoming Tank Biathlon, which the Chinese are hell bent on winning this year.

    The Russian team will apparently also sport new tanks and will be using new type of ammo - according to VIM (V. Murakhovski) at Otvaga

    I wonder what China will bring to raise their chances....maybe a Type-99 variant? 

    The 96's did well last time around but didn't do so great in regards to mobility. I kind of doubt they'll be sticking with that platform.

    If China can use top of the line tanks, then why not Russia use T-90A then? T-72B3's clearly are not as nearly upgraded as Chinas main tank....

    Who knows, they may... Then again China might bring back the T-96. Either way Russia already knows what tanks it will be going up against.

    IMHO T-72 modification for biathlon, unofficially called b4 is very decent tank. New FCS, engine, sights. Not to mention tank is specially tailored for biathlon. I imagine China will modify few tanks too as last time I've seen they had terrible mobility issues.

    China has brought four ZTZ-96's. All of which look to have their basic sighting systems. Chances are they are packing a bigger engine and new tracks...

    Bigger engine means more vulnerable rear area, similar to what M1 Abrams has experienced.

    Wonder if China can acquire the 2-cyliner diesel Ukrainian style used on T-80 family ? Compared to Germany and Russia, Ukrainian engine is quite small.

    True, but this year they are desperate. As proof, all four tanks have been stripped of their ERA... 

    They might be able to but IIRC it is using an indigenous engine, hence the odd output.
