People like Hans always confused their own preconceived idea with a fact. Their article is poorly researched. I would rather trust people like Mark Stokes, Andrew Erickson. because they speak and write Chinese plus they spend their entire Career observing and studying Chinese military.
Of the two Mark stokes is the better analyst because He is ex US air force intelligence officer attached to Beijing embassy and spend many years perusing public Chinese technical article
