China's 1st Marine Brigade on exercise via China Defense Blog
More pics here.
Is it just me or are the Chinese really working out there Marine Brigade? As I predicted, they're not infantry heavy...we're seeing a fully mechanized force being put thru its paces.
Perhaps more ominously it appears in the photos that I saw that they're practicing counter landing techniques. Firing anti-tank missiles out to sea? I guarantee they're not being aimed at warships or amphibs. LCACs, AAVs and other landing craft are the targets. A heliborne assault would face missile barrages so that's not the answer either.
If we're going to believe our lying eyes then we're back to the future. Enemy defenses must be rolled back...there will be no quick and easy maneuver to avoid facing them.
