    The 12.7 mm Type 89 heavy machine guns pack a formidable suppressing power.

    I'm jealous any idea how many HMG are distributed in a battalion?

    Depends on battalion functions, actually, these guns are mostly mounted on vehicles, LanZhou military zone faced by the increasingly serious anti-terrorism missions, Each battalion in its military zone has a machine gun company, each machine gun company has 8-10 carried-on HMG and 6-10 anti-aricraft guns, but again, it just hold true for regular infantry. There are more armored mechanical troops that has such a HMG mounted on their vehicles, it is hard to count.

    So I believe for a Battalion of say 900 soldiers 8-10 HMG that is approximately 1 HMG for each company.not bad if you ask me I don't think in IA we are even close to that number.

    Yeah, for regular infantry troops, that is pretty much the count.

    You are right, these two are too similar.

    For your information,a Chinese infantry battalion has some 300 combat soldiers,plus about 200 officers、support and logistic personnels etc。

    It used to have only 400 or so personnels。

    Don't compare Chinese battalion,regiment、division etc with equivalent American or British units,the latters are roughly twice the size in numbers。

    not 200 officers,some offciers,some staff memers,some technicians,some logistic personnels etc。etc。

    In short,a Chinese battalion is much smaller than an American battalion,or an Indian battalion for that matter。

    A Western or Nato battalion is close to a Chinese regiment in manpower。
