    The US does that all the time. Clear a Carrier of fighters load up on helicopters and C3 Greyhounds. Carriers have a very large sickbay and there onboard stores are perfect for haulling food water and other disaster needs

    Maybe when China has more carriers, escorts, and support ships on hand and tensions are low enough among China's flashpoints that they won't be needed for combat close to home.

    The US does that because it has plenty of carrier groups all over the world all the time anyways, it also uses its LHDs for the same purpose.

    Said to be used for simulating "camp defence", but I'm guessing (and hoping) that it's just an excuse to play some Counter Strike.

    even games like these can be training tools albeit very limited ones.

    The only thing I can think of is to teach better communication and reduce their impulse to charge and attack. I think games is a great teaching to soldiers that this is no movie and don't be a hero. You get shot everywhere when you make a wrong move.

    As preambled in my previous post, the PLA has now tested (and also deployed) some of the combat gear supplied by this company. Interesting to see them looking to buy equipment from non-state-subsidized suppliers.

    Take note of the upgraded QBZ-95 handguards.

    and a few foreign models in these images. the boot seein at the bottom of the first image looks like ATACS pattern camo.
    The second image has Go Pro Camera and Mechanics gloves
    Note the Mepro Optic in the Third.

    Arm patches says armed police special combat, aka SWAT, so no real change as far as the PLA is cencerned.

    Good catch. It makes sense with non ballistic Brain buckets.
    That pattern looks more like a modification of the old Vertical Leaf Then Multicam... Wonder if they are trying to hybrid the patterns to avoid looking to "western".
