PLAN breaking news, pics, & videos


Interesting. I never knew they accept foreigners
That's definitely not what's happening. This is probably a small coop program on a very insignificant facet for symbolism or they're just marching together for some event. There is no way these are foreign full time cadets here to learn naval combat from the PLAN.

So you don't know anything about international relations, and you can't understand the long-term interest of training other navies' personnel...I'm so sorry.

So you don't know anything about national security and can't understand the meaning of classified information. Give me the article that says these a naval cadets learning PLAN combat doctrine. Give me the source, because from what I know, they can be trained on the lesser aspects for the sake of international relations, but core PLAN combat doctrine is not taught to foreigners. The CDC in Atlanta can be accessed by foreigners by supervised appointment and possiby some lower jobs can be held by them but its core operations in regards to epidemiology with possible bio-warfare applications are only open to US citizens. Be sorry for yourself and your ignorance coming here talking like a stupid jack ass.

Actually, China has a long history of training foreign cadets in its military schools. My father has taught Chinese language classes of officers from south Asia in the 80s preparing them for military education in China. I had also seen south-east Asians wearing military uniform (without insignia) in my father's school when I was a child. I suspect them being Cambodians. A famous example is the current president of Zimbabwe, Emmerson Mnangagwa who received language training in Beijing, military training in Nanjing during the independent movement. He later became the defense chief under Mugabe.

These training has never stopped, they are to train for real combat. The height of these exchange was the 1960s to 1980s. The training is not limited to guerrilla warfare but also include regular warfare, one example is that the Tanzania armed forces nicknamed in China "East African PLA" who fought against Gardaffi and Uganda.

Are they trained in minor subjects/revised tactics or are they actually trained in PLA combat tactics? If the latter, what if one of them goes out and writes a handbook of PLA combat strategy for a Western country in exchange for a couple million USD? That is a level of trust that I am not comfortable with. When top militaries sell physical hardware that is incredibly hard to steal to allies, they still tend to dumb them down for national security reasons. The Chinese military trains droves of foreigners in information that can be directly used to counter the PLA should even one soldier be bribed for it?

Several PLA schools have foreign officer cadets. There are some classes only offered to exchange students. Most cadet training/officer training is not classified. A lot of math (Soviet influence) and philosophy (military history and theory). The classified stuff manqiang is thinking of happens on the job.

When one of my uncles taught math in Xuzhou's artillery school, there were plenty of foreign students from "friendly" countries. Math doesn't change, physics doesn't change. Everyone can buy a copy of art of war or Clausewitz, only the interpretation differ a bit.

For a PLAN school, basic seamanship is basically the same, same with navigation or mechanical engineering etc.
