PLA in Military Operations in Urban Terrain (MOUT) training

They are no SWAT that's for sure as  no shield or other specialized equipment are sported in this series of photos

The PAP SpOps units, while lacking in numbers, are far better equipped and trained for MOUT than your everyday G.I Zhou.   That being said,  they do have the common courtesy of carrying shotguns with them, which is not all bad.

PLA "Thunder Run"

In a scene that reminisces the US Army Third Infantry Division's drive to Baghdad in April 2003, a mechanized brigade, 20th Group Army, Jinan Military Region conducts its own "Thunder Run" to test its armor thrust in a MOUT. It is a good attempt. However, it is somewhat difficult to imagine any "island" city has this type of wide open boulevard or the Type92/WZ551 IFV would stand as well against RPGs as the US M2.

Another way to look at it -- being the PLA has its perks -- it can conduct this type of large scale MOUT exercise without worrying about lawsuits.
