    Rapid Reaction Units

    Rapid Reaction Units


    In the mid-1980s, the PRC leadership concluded that a full-scale nuclear war was highly unlikely going to happen. However, in the eyes of PLA military planners, the world was still unsafe and unstable. Regional instability and potential conflict caused by territorial dispute, ethnic and religious conflict, and arms proliferation also existed in China’s peripheral areas, such as Xinjiang, Tibet, Taiwan, and the South China Sea. At the same time, modern regional conflicts are characterized by its growlingly high-intensity and fast pace. Therefore, the PLA must develop two capabilities: first, the capability to establish effective defense against enemy on the border; and second, the capability to project power over long distance. These capabilities would ensure that a local conflict is contained in early stage before it escalates into a full-scale war, and also provide the country with time for mobilizing its population.

    Driven by this initiative, the PLA began to experiment with the concept of RRU in the late 1980s. This process was speed-ed up in the early 1990s, following the Tiananmen Square demonstration incident in June 1989. By the mid-1990s, the PLA had created a 100,000-strong RRU, responsible for responding to regional conflicts as well as domestic incidents such as demonstrations and rioting. By the late 1990s, this was said to have expanded to 300,000 men. As well as ground forces divisions, the airborne forces subordinate to the PLA Air Force and the marine corps subordinate to the PLA Navy were also designated as RRU.


    PLA R.R.U for Indo -Sino War :

    Lanzhou Military Region:
    * 61st Motorised Infantry Division (21st Group Army)

    Chengdu Military Region

    * 149th Motorised Infantry Division (13th Group Army)

    Aircraft:

    [​IMG]
    IL-76MD
    PLAAF’s first dedicated heavy-lift military transport, the IL-76MD provides significant improvement in the PLAAF’s airlift capability. Each IL-76MD could carry 190 troops, or three armoured vehicles, over a distance of 6,100km, and drop them directly to enemy zone. The aircraft’s airdrop and cargo handing equipment allows it to load, unload and air drop paratroopers, materiel and cargo quickly. The onboard avionics is intended to execute airlift and airdrop missions by day and at night, in VFR (visual flight rules) and IFR (instrument flight rules) weather conditions, as well as under hostile air defence conditions. Recent PLA exercises have featured the transport in a variety of operations, demonstrating its ability to fill the airlift gap previously existed with the PLAAF.

    Yun-7 Turboprop Transport Aircraft
    Xi’an Aircraft Factory (now XAC) began to develop the Y-7 twin-engine turboprop passenger plane based on the An-24 Coke in April 1966. The first prototype powered by two 2,550hp turboprop engines made its maiden flight on 25 December 1970. However, the aircraft failed to pass its certification in 1977 due to its underrated engines. A second attempt to get the aircraft certified in 1979 was also unsuccessful. A revised design powered by two improved 2,900hp WJ-5A-1 turboprop engines first flew in 1980, and was finally approved for design finalisation in July 1982. The aircraft was certified for passenger flight in January 1984, with a total of 85 examples were delivered by 1992.

    Y-5
    The Y-5 (Yunshu-5, or Yun-5) is a Chinese copy of the Russian Antonov An-2 (NATO codename: Colt) light cargo biplane designed in the 1940s. First flying in December 1957, the Y-5 is still a common utility aircraft in both civil and military services in China today due to its excellent performance and low operating costs. The aircraft’s extraordinary slow-flight and STOL capabilities make it particularly suitable for taking-off and landing on unprepared fields. Although originally designed as a small passenger and cargo transport, the airframe is highly adaptable for a wide range of roles including pilot training, parachute jumping, air-to-land supply dropping, etc.

    MI-26T

    The Mi-26 was the first helicopter equipped from the factory with an eight-blade rotor. It is capable of single-engine flight in the event of loss of power by one engine (depending on aircraft mission weight) because of an engine load sharing system. While it is only slightly heavier than the Mi-6, it can lift up to 20 metric tons (44,000 lb) - 8 tons more than Mi-6. The Mi-26 is the second largest and heaviest helicopter ever constructed after the experimental V-12.
    In July 2010, a Russian-Chinese development of a successor type was announced.

    Mi-17/171 Hip Multirole Helicopter
    Over 250 examples of the Russian Mi-17/171 (NATO reporting name: Hip-H) multirole helicopter are currently operational with the PLA. The helicopters carry out transportation of troops, supplies and equipment to the battlefield. Other roles include air-to-surface attack, medical evacuation, airborne command post, refuelling, mine laying, search and rescue, spacecraft recovery, disaster relief, etc. A licensed co-production of the helicopter has started in 2008 by a Chinese-Russian joint venture in Sichuan Province.

    The latest purchases have shifted to the Mi-17-V5/V7 variant manufactured by the Kazan Helicopter Plant JSC. The Mi-17V5 differs to the Ulan-Ude-built Mi-171 in its 'dolphin' nose, more powerful TV3-117VM engine with new auxiliary power unit, an extra port door on the starboard side, and flat rear fuselage ramp for easier access.

    Z11
    The Z-11 was modelled after the successful design of the French AS 350B Squirrel helicopter, which first flew in 1974. However, the Z-11 was not simply a reverse-engineered copy of the AS 350B. According to the Changhe engineers, the Z-11 differs from the AS 350B in nose shape and certain internal structure. The Z-11 prototype made its maiden flight successfully in December 1994, and the initial small batch production began in 1997. The test flight of the helicopter for design finalisation was completed in 2000. The PLA Army Aviation Corps Training Regiment has received a total of 37 Z-11s in the Z-11J (military) model for training role since September 1998.

The rifle is intended for rough military use, so it is fitted with adjustable iron sights by default, and is generally equipped with telescopic sights or with night sights.Effective range 800 m.

    In this thread China`s RRU`s most effective weapon in any offensive is its paratroopers/ Airborne mechinfantry:

    1. As these men & machine can be dropped into out parts and they can effectively cut narrow supply routes from rear..
    2. Paratroopers and their light tanks with light arty can effectively repel any counter attack by US for short period of time..
    3. The blocked of supply routes also insure the safety of the road for further incursion..
    4. The Light AD also pose significant thread for IAF strike aircraft..



    The possible solution is to have a good Airdefence of the entire area with SAM` radar and Airdefence Fighters..
    Also IA might need special Quick reaction units to destroy enemy as soon as the touch the grounds..

    WTF! None of them have Bullet Proof? I guess they don't care about casualties. The digi camos are good.

    And they are wanting in the artillery department.

    Can we have some upcoming stuff as well, like new aircraft and artillery guns?
