PLA Trooper by ND-2500 PLA Trooper by ND-2500
Although that i don't really support communism, I just felt like drawing troops from my country of origin...Don't start posting politically related comments please...

A soldier of the Chinese People's Liberation Army in full combat gear, armed with the standard issued Norinco QBZ-95/Type 95 5.8x42mm Assault Rifle and a QSZ-92 5.8x21mm handgun in his holster. He's wearing the recently issued Type 07 digital camouflage in its universal pattern.

Since detailed references pictures about the PLA are either rare or outdated on the web, some details might not be 100% accurate.

Comments and faves are welcome like usual. :)

The PLA, compared to any modern Allied nation, mainly the United States Army and Marine Corps, or the British Army or even the German Military, the Chinese military is severely outdated, due to the fact that their Navy is small and not as effective as the US or British Navy, even the Australian Navy. Their troops are trained hard, but, technologically, they are under-armed for modern warfare, especially when it calls for heavily armored vehicles, high-tech weapons, and strong airpower.

They are deadly, to a certain extent. They can only do so much with the tech they do now.

Hopefully, war does not break out between us and them. This world does not need another world war. This world does not need millions or even billions dead. Humanity can only take so much more of war, even though, technically, war is endless and will never disappear, no matter what we do or hope for. Sadly, it's true, despite my wishes for peace.

Now that i look back on this photo and the many hours i spend now playing Operation Flash Point Dragon Rising and making custom missions. and the hours of trying to defeat the PLA troops who would out flank my Marines. with this inspiration i can now draw something... with the memory and references

Hmm, it's not really a good ref to use considering how the vest is partially hidden by the QBZ-95 rifle. :XD:
