PLA Unit Of The Day: Xinjiang Altaya (阿勒泰) Frontier Defense Regiment
Why blog about an insignificant unit, you ask? Fair question - how about that they are now better equipped to perform their intended role as light infantry rather than glorified border guard. A policing role which they are ill-suited for.
No worries, they have their brethren PAP to pick up the border patrol slack. Of course, there's always the option of building a wall, a beautiful wall.
