On the morning of the 24th, the State Council Information Office published a white paper entitled “China’s National Defense in the New Era.” For the first time in the white paper, the PLA’s main battle equipment model was written.
These main combat equipment include the 15-type tank, the 052D destroyer, the J-20 fighter, and the Dongfeng-26 medium-range ballistic missile. This represents the main battle equipment of the PLA’s land, sea, air and rocket forces. The white paper said, “Intensify the elimination of old equipment and gradually form a weaponry and equipment system with high-tech equipment as the backbone.”
It can be seen that the weapons and equipment of various military services can be written into the national defense white paper. It can be seen that these equipments have not only been included in large quantities, but have also formed combat effectiveness and comprehensive combat training.
In addition, it can be concluded from the public reports that these main battle equipments belong to China’s independent innovation and are at the global leading level in overall design and related new technologies. These new types of main battle equipment will further enhance the PLA’s comprehensive operational capabilities and help the PLA to better shoulder the sacred mission of safeguarding national sovereignty, security and territorial integrity.
