That third image... Whenever an Army or PAP squad is the subject, they often do this ISIS pose. I'm almost certain that official Chinese military photographers are required to follow strict guidelines on how to compose an image, which require them to direct the poor soldiers to utterly idiotic poses. In addition to the ISIS pose, there is the obligatory leaping rabbit pose, the shouting man pose, the blurred motion men pose, etc. It's almost as if they're trying to sabotage morale and recruitment. The same goes for photographing naval and air force assets. Just extremely strange angles, compositions, and color profiles being repeated over and over again. Utterly bizarre.
End off-topic rant.

It's a relatively low effort way of trying to make a picture look interesting or dramatic, by someone not paid enough to think about what constitutes good taste and poor taste.
By the time they have money enough to spare to pay someone a bit more for that, I suspect other more pressing proper military requirements would have been mostly fulfilled.
