"The offensive is at an impasse": the Chinese battalion commander spoke about the problems during the tank exercises

In China are tank teachings. The equipment and personnel of the 72nd PRC Army are involved in the maneuvers.


The command of the tank brigade, which is part of the 72nd Army of China, reports that the main test during the exercise is the ability to perform assigned tasks in high temperatures. Reports say that daytime air temperatures rise to 40 degrees in the shade in the exercise area - an additional burden for both military personnel and the power plants of the PLA tanks.

The maneuvers involved several types of tanks in service with the Chinese army, including the Type96.

From the message of the commander of the PLA tank battalion Zhang Jinwang:

The exercises take place in an area with a different landscape. This is both a mountainous part and a plain overgrown with forest. We pay great attention to reconnaissance on the ground, searching for targets and covering our combat vehicles.

It is reported about the creation of a consolidated strike group, which should quickly occupy a certain territory in unfamiliar terrain.
In addition to tanks, infantry fighting vehicles are also involved in the maneuvers.

The Chinese battalion commander also spoke about the problems during the tank exercises:

At the beginning of the exercise, the tanks passed through a pine forest almost 5 kilometers long, after which the troops crossed the narrow mountain roads, where it was difficult to move at a fast pace. The first place was taken by the speed of the crew's reaction to outgoing threats. The tanks were moving under the scorching sun, which created certain problems. The vehicles overcame anti-tank obstacles, including rows of barbed wire and anti-tank cones.

According to the Chinese officer, in one of the sectors "the tank offensive has reached a dead end." This was due to the presence of a large number of obstacles to further advance and the complexity of organizing the defense of a tank column in narrow sections of the route. The enemy had the opportunity to attack the column from the rear. It was necessary to deploy part of the forces to defend the rear part of the armored vehicle column.



The pace of the advance was lost. The tanks and infantry fighting vehicles entered the assigned area to take positions and camouflage with some delay. In theory, this would give the enemy a chance to better prepare for the "meeting" of equipment in the main positions.

          Leo Tolstoy: As the fourth
          The hard carried us
          Mountains to select

          Baron Vrevo General
          I pestered Gorchakov,
          When drunk

          "Prince, take these mountains,
          Do not enter into a quarrel with me,
          I’ll tell you wrong. ”

          Gathered for advice
          All the big epaulettes
          Even Platz-Bek-Kok

          Chief of Police Platz-back-Kok
          I couldn’t invent
          What to tell him

          We thought for a long time, wondered
          Topographers all wrote
          On a large sheet

          Smoothly written in the paper
          Yes, forget about the ravines,
          And walk on them ...

          Princes rode out, counts,
          And behind them topographers
          On the Big Redoubt

          The prince said: "Go, Liprandi."
          And Liprandi: “No, sir,
          No, they say, I won't go

          You don't need a smart one there,
          You went there Reada,
          I'll see ... "

          Suddenly Read just take it
          And led us straight to the bridge:
          "Come on, to Uru"

          Weimarn cried, begged,
          So that he waited a little.
          "No, let them go"

          General Ushakov,
          That is not at all like this:
          All waiting for something

          He waited and waited,
          While I was getting ready
          Cross the river

          We made a noise with a bang
          Yes, the reserves did not ripen,
          Someone messed up

          And Belevtsev-General
          All only the banner shook,
          Not at all to face

          On Fedyukhiny heights
          Only three companies came to us,
          And let's go to the shelves! ...

          Our army is small
          And the Frenchman was three times,
          And sikursu darkness

          Waited - will leave the garrison
          A column to rescue us,
          Signal

          And there Saken-General
          I read all akathists
          Mother of God

          And we had to retreat
          R ... their mother,
          Who drove there

        Where are the conifers (pine forests)?

          The 72nd Army is considered elite in the PLA. It can be transferred to any direction, but now it has a headquarters in Huzhou, which means that Taiwan is closest to her.

    Good teachings, right. Now everything depends on who will be encouraged based on their results and who will be punished. If they encourage those who have saved equipment, fuels and lubricants and resources as much as possible, then sweat in vain ...

    The task is completed and this is the main thing. It's hard to learn, easy to fight.

    With competent and timely intelligence, this usually does not happen.
    By the way, judging by the results of the Army-2020, China's tankers and equipment are at a good level, the rollers no longer fly off)

    For the fact that the Chinese language dissolves, talking about the teachings, he can be shortened. Tank type-96 is a good tank, judging by the reviews even of our tankers.

      Will not be shortened. This is a deliberately released information for our people, "Look in what difficult conditions and difficult introductory terms we study, it is not for nothing that your taxes go to the treasury and we are fed. We will blow very well, if anything." And for potential enemies, the meaning is the same and to the fact, "you are looking, otherwise the hour is uneven!"

    Interestingly, it turns out that the tankers of the PRC did not understand before that all the complexities of action in mountainous and wooded areas ... It sounds strange, given that they adopted a model of a light tank especially for actions in such conditions.
    All these "revelations" are more like an attempt to "set up an information smokescreen" to conceal the true activities that were carried out under the guise of these exercises

    Talking about the alleged problems during the exercises, Chinese officers emphasize that the PLA is ready for any difficulties and will follow any order. In Soviet times, similar articles appeared in Krasnaya Zvezda, district and army newspapers, which set up soldiers to successfully complete assigned tasks. And it is right.

    "According to the Chinese officer, in one of the sections," the tank offensive came to a standstill. "This was due to the presence of a large number of obstacles to further advancement and the difficulty of organizing the defense of the tank column in narrow sections of the route."
    It seems that they don't bother with any intelligence at all laughing

    There is nothing super unusual in such conditions; a military column of any army in the world can get into them.
    The only question is how soon and with what losses the convoy will break out into the operational space.
