the construction of the 3rd defence-line is one enormous industry_shift tide in CHina during Cold war, it is CHina's emergent preparation for the possbile WW III.

its aim was to set up a completely independent military-industry base in the heartland of CHina, to sustain CHina's prolong resistence against potentcial rivals such as Soviet or USA during the coming WW III.

the deepest yellow is the heartland of CHina, where "the 3rd defence-line" was set up.

Background:

1. China mihgt have to fall into war against Soviet and USA at the same time.
In 1960s, sino-soivet aliance split and Soviet became the enemy of CHina.
At the same time, USA had been the enemy of CHina since Korea war and still fought against CHina indirectly throught a proxy war-"Vietnam War".

2.Most CHina's military-Industry base was located in coastal CHina and Northeast CHina.
there was few modern industry in heartland CHina.

3.historic lesson of WWII.
During WWII, because China had not modern military industry and could not supply enough weapons and ammunition ,Chinese troops could suffer heavy loss and lost lots of battles...

China's lesson from WWII:
You can not win the war while you can not assure the resuppply of weappons and ammuniton.


During WWII,Due to lack of ammunition, most Chinese soldiers carried Chinese chopper for close fighting.

Dongfeng Motor Corporation and Chang'an auto, two of top 4 Chinese auto tycoons, both can pruduce millions of auto every year now. Two were both set up as Tank& armor vechicles plants .

If necessory, the two auto tycoons can easily produce thousands of tanks/armor vehicles for PLA.

Where you wrote Mianya it should be Mianyang City.

Chengdu Aircraft Company is also based on workshops set up during WW2 by the US Army Air Force when B-29 bombers operated out of Chengdu from where Japan was bombed..

1. it is indeed Mianyang...one type error
2. there might one old workshop left by americans....
However,generally speaking, CAC was looked on as a transplanted backup of SAC.
