Major bases that erected with concrete structures will have power lines for sure, but those forward based barracks (closer to the border) doesn't have such luxury (if otherwise, they won't have go for the light-weight barracks design introduced earlier this year), so likely a mix of solar and diesel, with power storage devices?It is a lot more mundane than that. Power lines.
Out of curiosity, is there an ergonomic difference between those types of pockets?Some images from a joint Sino-Vietnam disaster relief exercise. Note the army pockets are slanted, which differ from the new combat uniforms we'd seen so far. I wonder if these are the new work uniforms.
Unlikely, one of the goals for the new camo is to eliminate the practice of "branch specific style", so it's unlikely for them to revert to old ways so quickly.Maybe that type of uniform is for the strategic support force only.
