Photos of the day: The assault of a 9-men PLA infantry squad

12.7mm HMG for organic fire support, that is hardcore.   Unlike their 50 cal ma deuce counterpart, the Type QJZ 89 12.7 mm heavy machine gun is man-portable and weighing in at only 17.8kg.

 In addition to RPG, PF-89 80mm "one hit wonder" LAW is becoming more common.

Nice stuff. Whether or not the PLA .50 is as good as the ma deuce remains to be seen. The US has tried many times to replace her, but the old girl just keeps breaking the competition. God love John Browning!
