Been Watching the PLA on TV?

In the Hutong

Wondering where Silverman is

I consider myself something of an amateur military historian, so it is particularly vexing to see a chunk of the PLA in action in Sichuan and have absolutely no idea what I’m looking at. That is even more embarrassing when you consider that my wife is a PLA brat and both of my in-laws are retired senior officers.
The web has some superb cheat sheets, though. If you’re inside the GFW you may occasionally have to do without the superb Military Analysis Network at the Federation of American Scientists’ website. If so, SinoDefence.com is also excellent – longer on the photos and much deeper on the PLA than the FAS.
