The Chinese army has revealed why it believes so many people have failed its fitness testing – and it makes for pretty bizarre reading. While some of the complaints make sense, with the military saying 20% failed because they were overweight, others are slightly less conventional. They include military advice to young people to cut down on video games, using their smartphones, and even masturbating. It has been forced to publish a list of principles for candidates to follow, which has been published in its mouthpiece the People’s Liberation Army Daily. In one city, 57% of recruits failed the test.
The military said 8% of men had an enlarged vein in their scrotum, which they claim is caused by too much sitting down. This was attributed to ‘long time playing computer games, excessive masturbation, less exercise and so on’.
A poor diet was also to blame for plenty of candidates’ ill health, with 25% failing blood and urine test due to drinking too much alcohol and fizzy drinks, the military said. The army said 46% of recruits failed a vision test because they spend too long staring at screens, including their phones. Other reasons for failure include candidates eating too much junk food, having sinus problems due to drinking poor quality water, and mental health issues.

China conducts successful land-based mid-course missile interception test

China on Thursday successfully conducted a land-based mid-course missile interception test, said the Ministry of National Defense.
The test was for defensive purposes and not targeted at any country, the ministry said in a statement.
The test on Thursday was the fifth land-based anti-ballistic missile (ABM) technical test China has publicly announced and the fourth land-based mid-course ABM technical test publicly known.
Past ABM tests were carried out in 2010, 2013, 2014 and 2018 respectively, according to media reports and official statements.

The flight of a ballistic missile usually consists of three phases in time order: boost phase in which the rocket booster will power the missile into sky, mid-course phase in which the booster stops as the missile traverses outside of the atmosphere, and reentry or terminal phase in which the missile reenters the atmosphere and dives onto its target.

It's technically easy to intercept a ballistic missile in the boost phase, because the missile is still close to the ground and accelerating, but it is difficult to get close to the launch site which is usually deep in hostile territory; in terminal phase, the interception is challenging because the speed of the diving missile is very high, observers said.
Mid-course is the most vital phase in the interception of a ballistic missile, and a mid-course ABM means intercepting the missile while it is in its free flight phase outside of the atmosphere, Song Zhongping, a Chinese military expert and TV commentator, told the Global Times.

One of the biggest difficulties of an interception lies in the high trajectory as the duration of the mid-course phase is relatively long, Song said, noting that the target of interception is usually an intermediate-range or intercontinental ballistic missile.

The latest test shows that China's ABM system is becoming mature with the success rate and reliability of interceptions increasing significantly, which is very important for China to build a complete ABM system, Song said.

Which one is more probable site for 85th Air Defence Brigade, Tibet Military Region with HQ-16 SAMs? 29°40'28.85 91°19'8.78 29°40'47.57"N 91° 4'58.67"E

Also notice the seemingly useless tunnel nearby. Why'd they spend so much effort just to save 1-2 km of extra road?

China's defense budget this year has increased by 6.8% to 1,355.343 billion yuan! Around $USD200 billion.

According to the government budget report released by the Ministry of Finance at the National People's Congress today (5th), this year's defense expenditure is 1,355.343 billion yuan, an increase of 6.8% over 2020.
Since the growth of military expenditures is calculated in nominal RMB, China's nominal GDP growth of GDP this year is estimated to exceed 10%, so the proportion of military expenditures will not increase.

It is estimated that the proportion of China's military expenditure is around 1.3% of GDP. This ratio is very comfortable. In NATO, the proportion of military expenditure will be too low to take advantage. This has caused the Americans and Japanese to start panting; because we are a regional defense, the Americans are attacking globally.

Given another five years, the tonnage of the Chinese fleet is estimated to be close to that of the United States, and even more than the comprehensive strength of the United States, Japan and South Korea in East Asia.

Y-20 production in high gear! At least 16 in satellite photo at Xian factory! Many are tanker variants.

Also, at least one is a Y-20B with WS-20 engines!

China has a secret weapon. One so devastating, it could even make an invasion of Taiwan possible. What is this secret weapon? American greed. China is building advanced weapons systems using American technology. And the Americans who are profiting are looking the other way. So called private Chinese companies like Pythium Technology are testing hypersonic missiles that could be used by the CCP to invade Taiwan.

China sent warships to Taiwan, its aircraft carrier the Liaoning, putting US China relations on edge and threatening Taiwan independence. The CCP continues to censor Western brands that criticize the Chinese regime for using Xinjiang cotton made with Uyghur slave labor. That and more on this week's China news headlines.
