    I wish I learned Mandarin... I even lived in China for a year but still couldn't get it :(

    But from the footage itself, that's a good test.

    at 2:40, the shooting tank's main gun has recoil. most Chinese tanks don't have this. I don't know why!

    That was the effect of the blast coming from the interceptor. The tank's gun was not fired during the testing.

    Yes, that's the video I was referring to.

    See at 2:52 of the video. The blast is from the explosion of the 2 interceptors.

    Edit: Put the video in slow motion. You'll see the gun remains unfired.

    My timestamping did not work. Look at 2:38.

    I'm not sure we're talking about the same thing.

    The part of the video you referred to is the same thing as that I was talking about, albeit played in slow motion and recorded from a different camera at a slightly different location.

    Guys, sorry it's my mistake. I watched the video again, what I referred to the tank fired with recoil was actually a blast very near to the barrel. So the tank didn't fire.

    Question;
    In the west the form of dress prescribed for formal events after noon is traditionally Evening wear. In other words the Tuxedo. The military equivalent for the west is the “Mess Dress”, “Dinner dress” or “Full dress uniform” basically a military tuxedo.
    I know that the PRC adopted the “Mao Suit”; Under well Mao. As the equivalent to the western tuxedo as formal evening wear for diplomatic functions. Does the PLA have Formal uniform equivalent mess or dinner dress?
    Is it a Mao suit done up with military paraphernalia? Or do they just ritz up the service uniform?
