Chinese Tank landing ships Tianzhushan (Hull 911),during exercises on April 25, 2018

The Chinese Marines are worth watching closely.  If they're following the maxim of "training like you fight" then we can catch glimpses of how they'll go at future opponents.

One notable instance is these new Landing Ship Tanks (in our naming conventions).  From my seat it appears that the Chinese Marines (and Army) aren't going light at all.

They are planning on putting armor on the beach, breaking out (assuming they haven't rolled back enemy defenses) and then moving to the objective at the speed of mechanized formations, not the 3-5 miles per hour of excellent infantry.

These boys are coming hard.  They're gonna come heavy and we've got to get ready.
