Have we seen them there Biscuits? I am pretty sure I have seen QBZ95 there but not QTS11 rifles.
Do you have a picture that is absolutely on the gulf of Aden or India boarder with QTS11?

Mechanized unit being inspected (notice rifles in the background)

Soldier from the 76th group army (assigned to Pakistan border)

Poster of a marine somewhere at sea, speculated to be gulf of Aden

It seems unclear whether it’s a generic assault rifle replacement or a support weapon.

I am guessing within an infantry section/squad it could be utilized prior to an approach/assault of enemy position. whereas traditional infantry doctrine would have assault teams close in with the enemy and destroy with grenade, this weapon can do the same job at a distance. There is really no point in having more than one per section/squad, you still have to win the firefight with your MG's and rifles.

Wonder if they will volley fire those grenades if the whole squad gets them?
Unless the PLA is willing to ditch the QBZ-95 in lieu of the QBZ-03 I don't see that happening. Especially since so much money and effort had been made to equip all the grunts with the QBZ-95 over the better part of the decade. Then there is the doctrinal problem, if everyone gets a QTS-11 (ignoring the price tag) who is going to be the riflemen, the forward scout or the one who wields the Squad Support Weapon?

Here's the original question:

Do you have a reading comprehension problem?

What part of it don't you understand?
I don't see which part of the question that I have misread, he was asking for a hypothetical scenario in which an entire squad gets the QTS-11. I am pointing out how unlikely that scenario is going to happen.
