Photo Album: A day in the life of a PLA enlist in late 1990s

Pictures are worth of a thousand words – much talk has been focused on China’s defense budget increase and those numbers and figures are somewhat obscure to outsiders. By comparing the current Type 07 infantry gear to the type 87 issued in the late 1990s, it offers a striking representation on the budget increases' impacts on the grunts

Don't be fooled. In reality Chinese grunts don't have any body armour. The rest of their uniform is just cloth, just like in the 90's. The only difference is that the cloth has a fashionable digital print.

well, if one adds the new winter gear, backpack, sidearm, Type95 and combat boots, there are noticeable improvements to be sure. The type 95 helmet is a nice addition.

Have served in a UN mission with PLA engineers in 2003. They do have body armour as part of their kit.
