There you go. Thanks for the clarification and reposting the pics. On a different note, it's good to use them using more realistic training tools instead of airsoft guns for training.
Note the blue slide on the simunition handgun.

That’s a massively important safety feature for any force-on-force training because you want zero chance of anyone grabbing the wrong gun.

Nobody in that original photo looked to be carrying anything other than standard issue live weapons, so it should not be any force-on-force exercise or they are just asking for trouble.

Also, aside from the EOD, nobody else even have eyepro on, never mind full face mask. Again, not what you would expect from a force-on-force pre-game.

Not exactly. In this video (

), these US Army soldiers are using simunition. However, externally speaking, their rifles didn’t have colors on them. The only thing that was colored was the bolt which was blue.

You are a bit late to the party my friend. This camo was displayed during the 2019 military parade.
I still can't find close up view of the Jungle pattern on the far left and the Desert pattern in the middle

Is the PLAN ever going to change their old camo too? As far as we know, Type 19 doesn't have a blue camo. Maybe they'll go for urban?

For the jungle one, here is one:

Not sure about the desert one in the middle though. The camos that were issued to the marines in Africa looked more like the Tundra one.

LOL, I just realized I disproved myself. The pic with the PAP and PLA joint exercise showed 95's with black bolts, which shows that they use live ammo. Based on that, the only options left are:
1. The pics that showed simunition were from a different exercise while the joint exercise one featured real guns.
2. They are using dedicated paintball guns, that look real, along with the blue simunition pistols.
