    Chinese Airborne Corps is a branch of the Chinese Air Force. This thread does not belong in the Army sub-forum; it belongs in the Air Force sub-forum, assuming the Airborne Corps needs a dedicated thread at all.

    @Deino, could you look at this and move it if necessary?

    Then it was my mistake !

    He asked me via a PM where to put such a thread and I suggested him to start a new one. You are correct and I will move/merge it to the AF-section later.

    again, my fault. :(

    An in-depth analysis on Chinese paratroopers from China Military Online
    Perhaps you could be a little less condescending towards me? I made a mistake and admitted it ... no need to jump on me. I thought that the PLA airborne troops were part of the army (like the US); it turns out I'm wrong. And I don't see why we shouldn't have a dedicated airborne troop thread when other members post useless threads such as "Indian blockade of Adaman and Nicobar Islands". The corps are rapidly expanding ... why not separate them from other PLAAF threads? It doesn't hurt

    No condescension was meant at all. I don't know how you've arrived at that conclusion. As others have explained to you before, it's completely normal for SDF members to point out mistakes because we value accuracy a lot. Mistakes are noted for the record so others who read this forum don't take away misinformation.

    I don't know how you've arrived at that conclusion
    Because that's the obvious nature of your messages. Don't take me for a fool, analyzing arguments is part of what I do for a living. Your numerous posts have accused me of "photo-dumping" (photo gallery?!?!?!?), "fanboyism", or posting other "low quality content" and telling me how I belong in a "fanboy" forum. I agree that you should point out inaccuracies, but you shouldn't do it in a patronizing or bashful way (which is precisely what you're doing). I know you don't like me and that's okay ... but please keep it polite around here ... I'm new btw (1 week)??? Why don't you look at the connotation of your messages before saying this, okay ?!?!?!?

    I think you are reading too much into my messages. I'm unsure how you can attribute a particular tone to them by analyzing their content or reach the conclusion that I take you for a fool.

    To be sure, what you were doing at PLAAF Breaking News thread can be fairly considered photo-dumping, and quite a few of your posts, when taken together, can be construed as fanboyism. However, I've only accused you of photo-dumping, but I've never accused you of being a fanboy. If I had considered you a fanboy, I would have never replied to your messages with helpful pointers and advice.
