    Turret looks to be Bakcha-U derivative. There's three RCWS in total, one at the top of the turret, and interestingly enough, two on either side at the back. Fuel drums are also attached at the back which could imply some sort of alternative means of getting out other than the ramp, possibly a clamshell type door with an upper half that swings upwards and a lower half that swings downwards.

    Exercise of the air defense brigade of the Northern Zone of the PLA Combat Command equipped with the Russian S-300PMU2 Favorit anti-aircraft missile system.

    Let me remind you that from 1993 to 2010, within the framework of five contracts, China received from Russia a total of eight S-300PMU air defense divisions, 12 S-300PMU1 divisions and 16 S-300PMU2 divisions.

    And with smaller budget....if China would have 50 % of the size of US armed forces budget then Americans could just sit down and leave the Chinese all the show....

    The thing is that wealth is expanding in China... people are making money... what they need to ensure is that the workers can earn good money along with factory owner... the biggest problem in the US is not race, though it is obviously a problem... but if black people were rich then race would not be an issue... the real problem is poverty... they used to have a tiny group of poor and a tiny group of very rich and the majority had enough and were a big middle class.

    Their problem is that their rule changes are created by politicians who are funded by the very rich and so the rules they change or introduce tend to create a situation where some very rich people get richer and everyone else gets poorer.

    As the huge middle class has shrunk and fallen into poor the system is showing problems that the rich want to blame on race, because the real problem is the greed of the very rich.

    Jeff Bezos was worth 120 billion at one stage.... his company is huge and most of its workers earn minimum wage but the company has made him obscenely rich... but no pay increase for the people that made him rich... I am surprised no one has shot him.

    It is amazing how few very rich and very powerful people get shot in the US... we are always hearing about their gun problems but it seems cops only shoot poor black people...

    Anyway, I think China should avoid such a future by paying more of the profit a company generates back into the wages of the employees that create that wealth rather than "investors" speculating on the company...

    And with smaller budget....if China would have 50 % of the size of US armed forces budget then Americans could just sit down and leave the Chinese all the show....

    I think Russias budget shows that if you are really only interested in actual defence and don't allow corruption to bleed like open wounds that you can spend rather less than the US and still progress and develop and improve and be competitive in most areas except numbers... but a well organised force should never rely on numbers except with mobility and getting local advantages in numbers.

    Biggest standing armed forces just in numbers, the US still have fare more advanced airforce, navy and army. And that will not change in 3 years, get back in 20 years and we can talk.

    New photos of a Chinese military transport helicopter Z-8L during the rehearsal of the air part of the military parade in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party. The helicopter is a deeply modernized version of the Changhe Z-18 helicopter, which in turn is a development of the French Aérospatiale SA321 Super Frelon.

    China is building up near Taiwan,

    "Preparing for war!" This short social media post by the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) 80th Group Army generated over 300,000 thumbs-up in 12 hours on Friday, amid high morale among Chinese soldiers ahead of the 95th anniversary of the founding of the PLA and escalating tensions across the Taiwan Straits. 

    The post on Sina Weibo had received more than 19,000 comments as of press time, with many netizens commenting excitedly "PLA soldiers, fighting! We support you guys!" 

    Some veterans said that they are always prepared to return to the PLA whenever the country needs them, and some netizens also expressed their wish for reunification of the two sides of the Taiwan Straits soon.

    Global Times China

    In the area of Hainan Island and Guangdong Province, the Chinese Armed Forces began conducting a two-day exercise. A ban has been imposed on shipping off the coast of Vietnam and in southern China.
