New PAP grenade launcher

WJ/FBQ-08. It seems to be a PAP (or in its new name, CAPF, China Armed Police Forces) only weapon. It's marked with WJ (Armed Police) in its designation.

Not sure what caliber it is in but it's probably in 37mm for the riot control ammo. Break-open design like the old American M79 from the Vietnam War era. The PLA (or its new name CA, China Army) is working on a side-open design like that of H&K and FNH for their 35mm grenade.

Has the PLA developed a method of causing tsunami?

nothing that a underwater 100MT nuke explosion won't do

Seriously? CAPF? I wonder what dumb bureaucrat thought that changing the translation of names in the Chinese military was a good PR idea? The characters are still 人民解放军 and 人民武装警察...

I await the trooper who paints his in tiger stripes and tells his buddies "I don't need no flare."
