Some 2,000 personnel, 60 tanks, 40 guns, 20 helicopters and 400 armoured vehicles were involved in the training during military exercises at the Fuji firing range in Gotemba, some 130 kms west of Tokyo, 27 August 2005.
They're just pictures, you have no clue what the hell they're doing so you make inferences, and all the Chinese people, who hate Japan, give some bias idea of what is happening in the pictures. No one knows exactly what's going on so don't say they're just trying to show off they're million dollar crap (Want me to call your T-59Ds crap?). We know it's an excercise and it has to be some kind of simulation of war like in every other excercise. This is a small excercise looking at the numbers, probably just a small armored brigade or something.
