Tank PLA crews during the Caucasus-2020 exercise



On September 21, the opening ceremony of the Kavkaz-2020 multinational military-strategic exercises took place at the Kapustin Yar training ground in Astrakhan. The soldiers of the Chinese army traditionally took part in it.

Regular guests


This time, military men from Russia, China, Armenia, Belarus, Myanmar and Pakistan marched in parade in front of the podium, on which, among others, was Lieutenant General Liu Xiaowu, deputy commander of the Western PLA theater of operations. For Beijing, participation in maneuvers on the territory of the Russian Federation has already become the norm. For the third year in a row, China has been participating in strategic exercises: before that, the PLA was represented at the Vostok-2018 and Center-2019 maneuvers.

These are fairly large military operations. So, according to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the total number of troops participating in the Kavkaz-2020 exercises has reached 80 thousand people. They gathered at specially designated training grounds and divided into three tactical groups: ground, air force and air defense and navy.

According to the official publication China Military, the Chinese servicemen participating in the exercises quickly get used to Russian equipment with the help of their colleagues from the Russian Armed Forces after several days of practice.

Instructors to help


Mutual trust in the exchange and cooperation between the military testifies to the deep friendship between the two countries

- writes the specified edition.

According to him, on the morning of September 14, after the transfer of equipment to Chinese units, the captain from the Russian side explained to the PLA soldiers the procedure for operating and troubleshooting military equipment. After that, they embarked on targeted training, including the development of driving, control and communication skills, and firing.

Russian-made equipment differs from ours in the order of placement of functional areas, and we need some intensive training to become familiar with the dashboard and various buttons

- explained Staff Sergeant Zhao Jiaxing.

But with the help of Russian instructors, he and his crew members "quickly, within two hours, mastered the control of Russian infantry fighting vehicles."

It took them only two hours to master the technique of driving our combat vehicles. This Chinese military is amazingly smart!

- explained, according to China Military, Lieutenant Colonel of the RF Armed Forces, responsible for organizing training on site. His surname is not indicated.

What is the height of the ballistic trajectory? How to quickly block targets?

- asks Sergeant Tang Shi his Russian instructor when studying the operation of an anti-aircraft missile and the procedure for operating a rocket launcher. In communication they are assisted by an interpreter and sign language.

        There is nothing to rejoice in. They are not friends with us - China's strategy is not to enter into military alliances with anyone. A huge potential difference has already accumulated between Russia and China. Russia today is about 2,5% of world GDP, while China is about 15%. The difference in potential is seven times, that is, China today, as an economy, is seven times larger than Russia, and in terms of population - ten times. And from us they need deposits, forests, resources, perhaps the clean water of Lake Baikal. Everything. What friendship. ..

        If we can say about the West that it is an enemy "with an open visor", then China is a friend "with a knife in its bosom."
        We have never been pleased with our help to China in the military sphere. For me, it would be better if they sewed shorts and T-shirts for all the peoples of the planet.

      And what is the delight? China has the same technique as ours, except perhaps with a local flavor and why shouldn't they master it? And about the threat of China Duc, it is not at all military, because all that China needs it receives without war in exchange for its goods, it's actually like in one state between cities / republics / enterprises .. We give them oil, gas, they give us goods, like ours from the north the same oil and gas to them in exchange with Kazan, St. Petersburg, Moscow, or other everything you need, the only difference is that it is China .. And the meaning of China to fight with us? It’s as if it will be orders of magnitude more expensive and it’s not a fact that something will work out at all .. They don’t want to live and work in the north, their newly built cities are empty in their northern provinces .. There are no people who want to live and work there ..

        Equal trade is the exception rather than the rule. And unequal exchange is gradually destroying the terpily's economy. To put a trading partner in a subordinate position, you must first break it. An example is the Crimean War, after which RI began tariff-free trade with Britain and France. Then they rolled back, but that's another story.

    Yes, for these purposes, they could have been smarter to specially select, or maybe even trained specialists (put them in a uniform and go ahead, study)

      If I were in the place of the Chinese, I would send the best instructors and specialists to these exercises. I am sure that the Chinese will squeeze everything they can out of our technology and, perhaps, try with such loads to find out its real characteristics and capabilities, and not published ones.

        And according to the unknown speaker, collective farmers arrived who had never seen a tank. They were shown and they mastered everything with amazing speed. Like a T 72 water fur, I can say that driving a tank is easier than driving a car!

I was surprised that there are so many cars on the side of the road. It turns out that we jumped into the oncoming lane. laughing drinks

            When driving, one guy got mud on a triplex, and there was no water in the washer. Driving for a time. He drove away from the tower and turned "from memory". As it turned out later - early. In general, I made a clearing in the grove of young birches and did not even notice!

              Every tanker has many such stories. laughing I am driving the T-62, just a little bit left to reach Vyshka - to cross the road (there, of course, the rails are rolled into asphalt at the crossing), to slip through the minefield, and - the finish line. I'm in a hurry. I fly up to the crossing, I see that the traffic controller is stopping the Zhiguli so that it means I don't run over them. A woman comes out of the Zhiguli, the traffic controller says something to her. Well, as I understand it, she explains that, they say, right now the tank will go here, wait a minute. And suddenly the left PMP refused me - I pull the lever, and the tank rushes straight. The crossing passed. I slowed down, checked the right one - it works. I drove a little more and turned over my right shoulder to the crossing. And the woman had already got into the car. As soon as I drove past the crossing, it starts. At this moment, I turn to the crossing and jump over it. I drove to the "C", in general, because even the torsion bar flew - you will not accelerate. And the traffic controller, he is one of our own cadets, later said that the woman left the car at the crossing and went further on foot - no persuasion helped that there were no tanks nearby at all. laughing She was a teacher at the students of Meda, who, like, passed military training at the educational center. Then I accidentally drove to them in a tank - I mistook the turns on the route. With what speed they flew out of the tents - it was fantastic! laughing
              As for your case, the guy has clearly not yet learned: I don't see - I'm not eating. drinks

                  Yes of course. But I found a time when, in the event of a TPU malfunction, it was possible to control kicks from the fighting compartment with a mechanic drive, so "I don't hear" was not so relevant laughing

    And how they were friends with the Germans just now ... they were forever friends ... until June 22 .. About fast studies .. - I don't think that it is very difficult for the driver to change to the new levers .. Especially if they show him , where is the button .... And there are probably more electronics in Chinese cars than in ours ... Remember the saying? "Chinese letter"? ))). One thing is written correctly - in the army, as well as at a construction site, sign language is a fundamental method of learning and competent tactical decisions ..)))

      Diplomatically verified command dialect - with long pauses between words smile Culturally, not expressive, but less informative. That is why they were busy for two whole hours. If they used a pure command, then they would teach in half an hour, moreover, without an interpreter smile

    This Chinese military is amazingly smart!

    Reminded of a joke.
    - And now our main number, the only show before the tour in Paris - flying crocodiles!
    A flock of crocodiles naturally flies out from behind the curtains - there are more in front, less behind, the smallest last - makes three circles around the arena and flies back behind the scenes. But the smallest crocodile gets tired and plops on the knees of the mayor's wife, who, of course, sits in the front row in the best place.
    She strokes his head and asks in a fading voice:
    - But tell me, crocodile, how do you do it all the same ?!
    To which the crocodile raises huge sad eyes at her and says:
    - Ah, madam, if you only knew, madam, how we are here *** (beat)!

    Russian cannot bend over about "surprisingly smart." Most likely, the phrase sounded something like this - "narrow-eyed rummaging around .., in a couple of hours to master a tank - it's not for you huhry-muhry, the mechanics there are not made with a finger .." (the phrase is given without specific turns of army slang)

    There are no friends in geopolitics, there are interests.
    It was said by Britain too - Britain has no friends and allies, it has interests.
    And this was said by Russia too - Russia has only two allies - its army and navy.
    And China with its sacramental monkey on the mountain ..
    So I guess everyone at the top understands.
