The days of just take your duffle bag to the quartermaster is over, apparently.

As for the content, think back in October the CCTV ran a newsreel about that...it kinda look like a trial-run warehouse, but it's kinda like Amazon's warehouse that workers scanned the QR code on the steamer trunk, the corresponding shelves will light up to indicate what to pickup - uniforms, boots, helmets and stuff...supposedly at full capacity, warehouse with such setup can become the one-stop shop, as each steamer trunk keyed in to each soldier's role and vocation...just look at the padding in one of them, there are potentials for more specialised loadout?
I remember seeing that! Very, very impressive indeed. PLA is serious about "军民结合(military civilian tech fusion)”, incorporating the logistical systems used by e-commerce can really boost the efficiency of equipment deployment, transportation and such. I see so much potential with this!

This can potentially save a lot of unnecessary spending and make replacing broken equipment and upgrading existing equipment so much easier, since every solider has their own individual log that indicate the equipment they have and they require. Figuring out what is missing, what is broken, what needs replacement and how much new stuff you need when upgrading will be so much more efficient and transparent if such a system is implemented.

We've seen photos of NATO soldiers wearing fatigues but bright flags of their countries. It may be some kind of exercises, where soldiers need to be a little more visible for safety reasons.
Almost all of these flags are just velcro tear off deals. Each country has their own NATO stock number. You have bright versions for parade and garrison duties and low vis version for field. I would imagine PLA is the same.
