It's especial well associated with Chris Costa former president of Magpul corp and a well known Tactical trainer.
but there are a few oddity's first that man is using a G36k.
so what's a german Sub carbine often used in counter terror doing in that the same pic as a brand new non export attack helo from china?
The gloves are Oakley so are the shades.
The Chinese have too my knowledge never been shown wearing Oakley products
the camo is M81 well and the web gear is western oh and our boy here... has a camo'ed Old Glory on his chest you can see the stripes dead center. So unless this guy is Blue army and they decided too ditch the blanks and laser tag kit I am betting some one photoshoped

No, ... that can't be true ! You beat me right a second !
Rocket pod again.. Hahaha.. PLAAF always like to show off their new toys firing this thing.
... but now !
Where is that paper from? Is it credible? I mean we all can type something out and print it.
WZ10 is a good helo, looks very similar to Tiger
France has recently just had a field day using helos from the Libyan campaign from thier LHD
they learnt lots of stuff, Nato commanders even didnt approve to send in helos like that but looks like France has pulled this one off, they never lost a single helo even although the threat level was quite high from high calibre guns, RPGs and even Manpads
on many occasions when twin barrel 23mm which lighting up the night sky but they lacked any guidance so were shooting blind at noise they were hearing
when there was a threat from RPGs they never fired on them straight away and waited as to not give any away their positions
and when Manpads were detected no flares or shafts were deployed again to hide their positions
attacks helos come with entire new battle tatics and its the helos and tatics that make the difference, lets hope China can gain similar experience someday and for attack helos endirance and survavibility is a must, they need long range and need to be able to take a hit and keep going, they also need big fuel load for behind enemy lines operations
currently 2 Regiments of WZ10 flying with 12 units each, so thats 24 WZ10 in operation, naval varients should be produced for future especially for the amphibious units and use on LPDs
More than 20 years after the Gulf War China finally got it's own helicopter gunship comparible to the AH-64 Apache. The effect of heli born gunships on tank and armoured columns is horrific. See here this video from the Battle of Rumaila on 2 march 1991 (4 days after the cease fire). As waves of gunship pound Iraqi Republican Guards what is said to have been a turkey shoot.
Gulf War (352 of 374) - After the War, 1991 - YouTube
i recall watching the war in a green screen with tracers going into the sky, it was like a movie but real, it was war in the living room, so unreal, after that i have been facinated by military, nice find Franklin!
however looking back its probably the worst example of Apache, no one was dumber than Iraqis when fighting a war, rolling out tanks in open desert was sucicide and it didnt take much to knock out those tanks, basically it was target practice and a easy job for the Apache probably didnt even breal sweat, the true capability of the Apache extends far beyond such encounters
I think PLAAF has spend many years trying to make this WZ-10 very surviable.
A true gunship need to take plenty of punishment and still allow the pilot to survive a crash land if the worst happen.
