 Visiting the participating troops of tank biathlon: the armored elite in the new era


This week, the author was invited to the 78th group army of the northern theater of the Chinese peoples Liberation Army to participate in the report meeting of advanced typical deeds of the 2020 competition, and visited a synthetic brigade of the 78 group army. In this process, the author has a more profound understanding of the Chinese army in the new era, and more realize the unique significance of the international military competition tank two events for Chinas modernization construction in the new era. At the same time, in the Taiwan area across the Taiwan Strait, focusing on how to improve the so-called available combat power, the author has launched a new round of activities Round the new adjustment.

Building a new era of iron clad elite soldiers

On October 15, the report meeting of advanced and typical deeds of the armys 78th group army 2020 competition was held in Harbin. At the event report meeting, the 78th group army of the army announced that it would give the international competition-2020 tank two events a collective second-class merit, and six comrades such as Zhu kongghao and Huang Jinying scored a second-class merit respectively. There were other advanced and typical deeds in the report meeting, but there is no doubt that the PLAs international competition-2020 tank two participating teams are the main players in this report meeting.

The performance of the PLA in the international competition-2020 tank two events in Russia from August 23 to September 5 is not news. The 702 team of the PLA team made its debut in Russias arabino shooting range and won the first place in the group. In the semi-final, it overcame the unfavorable factors such as tank failure, crew fainting in the field and wrong judgment In the final, he led the Russian team for nine consecutive laps and won the second place in an hour, 29 minutes and 29 seconds. In particular, in the shooting process, 24 out of 24 shots created the best result of the Chinese team in the tank two finals.

The author was invited to participate in the report meeting, and took this opportunity to get more contact with the upper and lower levels of the 78th group army, and had a deeper understanding and feeling of this heroic force.

When it comes to tank competitions, the tank technology and equipment used by the PLA and the hard training of the PLA teams are often mentioned. This year is the fifth year in a row that the PLA delegation has used domestic 96b main battle tanks to Russia to participate in two tank events, and the outside world is quite familiar with the 96b tank. Whether it is the upgraded 1000 HP 8V150 diesel engine and integrated hydro mechanical transmission system, or the further upgrading of the improved upper anti gunner sight, and even the ventilation pipes on both sides for crossing water barriers, Its not strange in todays eyes. Although this type of tank has not been formally finalized, the 96b MBT is a fully mature and relatively fixed equipment.

At the same time, the PLA team took 259 days from being ordered to complete the competition and returning home. Its training process in China has gone through the Ministrys training site in Northeast China, Baotou, the location of Inner Mongolia First Machinery Group, which produces 96b main battle tanks, and Xinjiang Korla training base. The training time is as long as that of the PLA team before. Therefore, the PLAs hard training is more regarded as a pronoun for long-term and intensive training.

Neither view is wrong. In this competition, due to the impact of the new crown epidemic and visa problems, the personnel responsible for the equipment support of Inner Mongolia Yiji group failed to obtain permission to enter Russia. This is the first time that the PLA delegation has gone out for two tank competitions without equipment support from the manufacturer. It is also the first time that the PLA fully relies on its own strength to support 96b tanks On the one hand, it reflects the careful preparation of 78 group army participants before the competition, sending technical support personnel to Yiji group in advance to learn the maintenance knowledge of 96b tank, and also reflects the increasing reliability of 96b as a new equipment, and the relative decline in the difficulty of technical support; while the PLA participating teams in the training process of preparing for the competition, a large number of training Practice is also essential. The consumption of thousands of main guns and the high-intensity training of loading more than one ton of ammunition per person per day are the training experiences of these young soldiers.

Study hard and practice hard in Korla

In the process of training, coach Tai Ying made big data statistics on more than 20 items of data, such as artillery technical status, shell firing data, shooters operation action, and projectile dispersion, etc., and drew a complete curve training situation map, tracked and mastered the crews training situation in an all-round way, and constantly improved the firing accuracy of live ammunition under various environmental conditions. It was quite different from the traditional equipment training In order to ensure the high hit rate of weapons in the competition from the root, we should further split every subject and obstacle in the competition, and explore every detail action to approach the standard operation required by the best performance Compared with simply practicing hard, the PLAs scientific training on the training level of the new type of equipment is more impressive in the whole tank two events.

The overall nature of tank two events has not changed fundamentally for many years. Its main content still includes various weapon shooting subjects, but more emphasis is placed on the mobile performance of the tank. The tank racing speed is determined by the time spent in completing the competition. Although the result of the competition itself is not directly equivalent to the combat training level of the armed forces of other countries, the two teams with good tank performance undoubtedly represent relatively advanced weapons and equipment. The armored troops who have a more detailed grasp of their own equipment and the logistics maintenance force to ensure the normal equipment are indispensable.

As a force with up to four heavy synthetic brigades and more main battle tanks in the northern theater, the decision-making level of the 78 group army also considered the tank two events not only as a competition to win glory for the country, but also as an opportunity to comprehensively improve the combat training ability of the army. Through the training methods and skills of the participating officers and soldiers, the scientific training experience summed up from the preparation and training of tank events will be promoted, so as to enhance the number of crew groups with excellent tank operation skills and maintenance personnel who can guarantee the reliability of equipment in each synthetic brigade, so as to comprehensively improve the combat effectiveness of the troops.

96b main battle tank is also gradually developed and improved in the competition year by year. Although there seems to be little change in appearance, the tank manufacturer has made dozens of technical improvements to 96b MBT this year after receiving feedback from the army. From the modified setting of Type 99 main battle tank, the gun frame and optical sight of antiaircraft machine gun which are more convenient for the commander to use and obtain better shooting results, to the disc type automatic loader ammunition selection device modified to speed up the loading speed of the main gun, and to the engine parts made of new materials in order to further enhance the mobility of the tank in the competition The improvement also made the 96b main battle tank perform better and better in the competition, so that the Belarusian team participating in this competition evaluated Chinese tanks like this: you are not tanks, you are ground flying aircraft.

Although the age, knowledge structure and rank of the young soldiers, the grass-roots officers and the professional leaders of the group army are different, they all constitute the three-dimensional image of contemporary Chinese soldiers. With such a team dedicated to the study of war and striving to strengthen the actual combat ability of the army, together with more and more advanced military enterprises and more advanced domestic main battle tanks, we have reason to believe that not only the 96b MBT will be ready for production and equipping troops in the near future, but also the Chinese team in the next tank biathlon competition can also achieve extraordinary results, and the PLAs ground combat assault The combat effectiveness of the force will also become stronger and stronger in this series of processes, and become a powerful combat force worthy of trust and able to protect national interests and territorial integrity.

From commander to soldier, being able to fight and win is an eternal truth

How many Taiwan troops are enough?

This week, the so-called reserve mobilization system reform announced by Taiwans defense organs has gradually surfaced under the reports of Taiwan media. On the one hand, the new system of the Taiwan Armys teaching and calling reform will be changed from the current two-year training, five to seven days a time, to one-year training and one time of 14 days in 2022, so as to increase the training amount from the current 120000 to 260000. On the other hand, the Taiwan army plans to extend the period of recruitment from the original voluntary service and voluntary service soldiers within 8 years after they retire from the army to 17 years after their retirement. The news from all walks of life in Taiwan is calling for criticism of the reform of the system.

Its north. 1450 is free from service again

In the military service system of the Taiwan army, the fundamental purpose of the call up which belongs to the reserve force recruitment system in nature is to rapidly increase the size of the army in the face of war, so as to enhance the overall combat capability of the Taiwan army. Its peacetime form is the so-called teaching call, which recalls some reserve soldiers to the barracks to maintain their combat skills; the wartime form is to form multiple garrison brigades after the Taiwan Army reserves are assembled.

Naturally, such a system of summoning people back to the barracks in peacetime without real combat tasks will encounter a lot of resistance in its implementation. According to the system of the Taiwan army, unless they meet some special conditions, they can not refuse to participate in such activities. Most of the officers and soldiers who have retired from the army for many years have already returned to Taiwan society. Undoubtedly, they will be interrupted in their normal work and life rhythm, causing great impact and even loss to them. A veteran of the Taiwan army once recalled that a platoon leader of a health platoon during the two Chiang Kai Shek Dynasties was forced to temporarily close his small clinic due to his mission of teaching and calling, resulting in a loss of income of at least NT $100000. Therefore, no matter how the system changes, especially this time, it is necessary to extend the time of the missionaries, which is tantamount to expanding the scope of the missionaries in disguise. As the main body of the missionaries, Taiwan people can not be satisfied.

Although the Taiwan Army boasts one million veterans, the veterans who can hit 105 grenades have become treasure

The result of this kind of mobilization is to provide the Taiwan army with a number of garrison brigades with retired old equipment but with a large number of ordinary infantry units. In theory, their total scale can reach tens or even up to a million people. In wartime, they can gather in all parts of Taiwan to defend the major cities and important strongholds in Taiwan. At the same time, they can be used as a combat supplement to the active forces with strong combat effectiveness.

However, the combat capability of such forces has been criticized and doubted for a long time. Because most of the time, the soldiers are not aware of their original unit affiliation, so the quality of the combat troops is uneven. In addition, the ex servicemen are unfamiliar with all kinds of combat contents. Therefore, the combat discipline and skills of such troops are not optimistic. Most of the time, when the reserve soldiers find out all the people and form a unit according to the establishment table, it is impossible to complete all kinds of training subjects with quality and quantity. Moreover, because the time of each call is very short, most of the reserve soldiers hold the attitude of muddling through life.

Therefore, even if some reserve soldiers serving in the relatively elite units of the Taiwan Army intend to strengthen the training of the training units, most of the results are unresponsive, and even occur many times because of the harsh training of the reserve soldiers by the teaching officers, leading to the absurdity of the officers being beaten outside the barracks after the release of the training. Under the background of such bad currency driving out good money and the situation of war moving towards high technology, the troops with low training level and equipment level staying at 50 years ago can hardly expect to play an effective role in the war, except for consuming the insufficient war resource reserve of Taiwan army.

However, in recent years, with the reform of the military service system in Taiwan, there have been fewer complaints about the low level of recruits in Taiwan society. Instead, many of the recruits have maintained their combat skills and even surpassed some of the soldiers in active service. The reason for this is not how much progress has been made in the level of the call troops, but the reflection of the further collapse of the training level of the Taiwan Armys active forces, especially its volunteers.

Before 2000, the term of service of the soldiers of the Taiwan army who implemented the universal compulsory military service system was generally two years, while that of some time periods and some services was three years. After 2000, the Taiwan authorities began to gradually reduce the length of service of the soldiers on voluntary service for the sake of pleasing the young people to obtain votes and implementing military reform. In 2000, the length of service was shortened from 2 years to 1 year and 10 months, 2004 to 1 year and 8 months, 1 year and 6 months from 2005, and 1 year and 4 months in 2006 Before Ma Ying Jeou took office, the length of compulsory service had been shortened to one year. However, after 2013, the military men born after 1994 had to receive only four months of military training, of which only two months were in the army. After the reform of the recruitment system of the Taiwan army in 2018, the non voluntary service men who reached the service age of permanent service simply needed to carry out military training for four months without leaving the army. Compared with the volunteers in active service, the veterans who have been brought back from the training program are even better than those who are in active service. This is also a strange thing about the compulsory military service system in Taiwan.

If the current system of the Taiwan army is not changed, after 2021, the target of the Taiwan Armys education will be limited to the so-called reserve soldiers who have been in the new training center and the army for four months after 2013. In this way, the quality of the Taiwan Armys reserve forces, which are already limited in strength, will further decline. In order to change this situation, the Taiwan army can only find ways from the older veterans. By extending the existing training years, those veterans who have served earlier, who have experienced more than one years voluntary military service, and whose combat readiness level is relatively high, should be included in the call. At the same time, the frequency and duration of the call should be increased, so as to improve the reserve forces as much as possible while increasing the training scale of the reserve forces Training.

(function(){( window.slotbydup=window .slotbydup||[]).push({id:u5811557,container:ssp_ 5811557, async:true }It is not optimistic to see what effect this so-called reform can play. The overall collapse of the quality of the reserve personnel of the Taiwan army was doomed as early as 2013 when the service time of the Taiwan Armys voluntary service was greatly shortened, and it was impossible to fundamentally improve through a few days of training. Although the training volume and training duration of reserve personnel will increase significantly after the reform, this change is more reflected in the statistical data. This is also the main source of strength for the Taiwan army in recent years, in addition to the introduction of advanced equipment. Similar accounting reform also includes a series of account keeping measures taken by the Taiwan army to improve the so-called establishment ratio of the Taiwan army in terms of its military establishment and statistical caliber recently. Although this is not beneficial to the enhancement of the Taiwan Armys front-line combat forces, it does not prevent it from becoming the so-called army building achievement boasted by the Taiwan authorities, as for the real combat effectiveness of the Taiwan army This has any improvement, obviously is only Wang Po sells melon, sells boastfully.
