    Wow, with all that new equipment the PLA ground trooper is starting to look professional now. It only slightly made up for making me that atrocity of a tank(the type 99) though ;)

    China and India interested in buying Russia’s new tanks Armata - media

    The new weapons demonstrated at the parade would be first supplied to the Russian army and only in perspective would be sold to foreign states, president’s aide said

    MOSCOW, June 4. /TASS/. India, China and Southeast Asia countries have shown interests to new Russian armoured vehicles demonstrated during the Victory Parade on May 9, Russian president’s aide for military technical cooperation Vladimir Kozhin said in an interview with the Izvestia daily published on Thursday.

    According to Kozhin, Russia’s traditional partners are interested in buying infantry combat vehicles and Armata tanks. "Interest has been demonstrated. The weapons are new and expensive. For the most part, by our traditional partners: India, China and Southeast Asia," he said.

    He said that the new weapons demonstrated at the parade would be first supplied to the Russian army and only in perspective would be sold to foreign states. So far, Russia is selling weapons under current orders.

    In a military parade on Moscow’s Red Square on May 9, the Russian military displayed a variety of armored cars, including the Tiger and the Typhoon vehicles, and newest means of transportation for the Airborne Troops, infantry combat vehicles BMD-4M.

    The tank section of the march-past featured the T90A tanks and a new arrival in the field, the Armata tank that has an entirely new multirole platform, which the manufacturer, the world-famous Uralvagonzavod corporation plans to use for a long range of other army vehicles.

    The newspaper cites experts as saying that it would be possible to speak about commercial lots only in a span of three years.

    I think sometimes when Russia tries to sell something she would tend to mention China, because that is a bit like putting out the rabbit lure during greyhound racing.

    I think the Russians usually "mistake" interest in the equipment in question for an intention to buy it.

    Of course the PLA would be interested in finding out all it can about Russia's new tanks, but that does not mean the PLA has any intention of actually buying the thing.

    Interesting, wonder if other armies take feedback from their troops on the lunch menu?

    If I could decide, I would plan the whole nation's diet, not just the PLA. Grow low GI rice incorporating genes from basmati or just grow basmatic, chicken rather than pork, farm high omega-3 fish and move away from carps and groupers, cut down the sugar in stir-fries by 2/3, more broccoli in addition to their already high amount of cabbage. Above all, incorporate turmeric and cumin. The merits of the Chinese are in the high amount of vegetables and tea habit, but let down by lack of the aforementioned healthful spices.

    Does any military's soldiers like their rations though?

    Many current/recent PLA rations seem to have a variety of flavours as well (there's a youtube channel that sampled the family of PLA's MREs), so it's not like they're only given rice and pickled bok choi as choices. Whether those choices are actually tasty or live up to their name is another matter entirely.
