Eww, as if. Eww, the PLA is like.... so yesterday, you know.

Since both "parties" of the Xinhai Revolution are now celebrating the centennial founding of the Republic (separately of course). There is no need for the PLA to "liberate" anyone anymore -- might as well drop the "People's Liberation" prefix all together.

From today's CCTV, the PLAN is now the China Navy

Where is the "People" in the "People's Liquidation Army "?



Without fanfare, China's People's Liquidation Army (PLA) quietly dropped the "People" off its name.

Does this mean that the PLA is no longer interested in the Communist ideal and is now focusing only on protecting/liquidating the Chinese wealth?

Likewise, the PLAN Special force is now The Special Force of China Navy.

PLAAF is now China Airforce

PLA Army Aviation is now China Army Aviation.


The PLAN is now China Navy

From MOD's own website, PLAN is now "CN". Ships will all be CNS "name"

In anticipation of national unification so that National Army in Taiwan Province and Communist Army (People's Liberation Army) from the Mainland will merge into One Chinese Army!
