    PLA to announce overhaul: five 'strategic zones' will replace regional commands, most army HQ to be scrapped

    [​IMG]

    So looks like West S.R. for India/Pak/C. Asia/ Separatism. East S.R for Taiwan issue. South S.R for Islands issue. Centra S.R. to protect Capital. North S.R. for Russia, N. Korea.
    Note that HQ of West S.R. is Urumqi not Chengdu.

    So, they are consolidating forces to counter India and removing any potential misalignment of objectives on western theatre.

    I do not know how much they will gain by this exercise.

    That's very different from what I saw, mainly ~~
    1) there's no "central" strategic zone. Streamlined into 4 not 5.
    2) South n East are larger
    3) West is headed from Chengdu not Urumqi.

    Along with the army cut by 300,000

    Yes, I saw that too with 4 SRs and chengu instead of Urumqi, about a week or two back; and actually on the same website.

    But this is article is from 2 days back so I thought this was the updated version. And even in this article it says last minute revisions are possible.

    The change into West SZ does not look India targeted. They are more concerned with separatists, internal security and Taiwan.

    On the contrary, these objects are the threats that Chinese concerns least. That is why they assign all these into a single strategic zone.

    I don't understand.

    Will the deployed force remain constant in this new system or will larger theater have larger force deployed?

    I mean Chengdu region + Lanzhou region ≈ West SR which the article suggests will be more than 1/3rd of the current (?) strength so what is the present strength.

    Chinese Defector Reveals Beijing’s Military, Government Secrets
    [​IMG]
    Ling Jihua, pictured, provided sensitive documents to his Brother, Defector Ling Wancheng
    by Bill Gertz

    A defector from China has revealed some of the innermost secrets of the Chinese government and military, including details of its nuclear command and control system, according to American intelligence officials.

    Businessman Ling Wancheng disappeared from public view in California last year shortly after his brother, Ling Jihua, a former high-ranking official in the Communist Party, was arrested in China on corruption charges.

    Ling Wancheng, the defector, has been undergoing a debrief by FBI, CIA, and other intelligence officials since last fall at a secret location in the United States, said officials familiar with details of the defection who spoke on condition of anonymity. The defector is said to be a target of covert Chinese agents seeking to capture or kill him.


    Among the information disclosed by Ling are details about the procedures used by Chinese leaders on the use of nuclear weapons, such as the steps taken in preparing nuclear forces for attack and release codes for nuclear arms.


    Other secrets revealed included details about the Chinese leadership and its facilities, including the compound in Beijing known as Zhongnanhai. That information is said to be valuable for U.S. electronic spies, specifically for cyber intelligence operations targeting the secretive Chinese leadership.

    Spokesmen for the White House, FBI, CIA, and Department of Homeland Security declined to comment on the case.
    Other officials said Ling defected sometime in the summer of 2015 after his brother, once the senior administrative aide to former Chinese leader Hu Jintao, came under suspicion for leaking state secrets.

    Intelligence officials said Ling, if confirmed as a legitimate defector in debriefings over the next several months, would have the most privileged information of any defector from China to the United States in more than 30 years.
    “This is an intelligence windfall,” said one senior official.
