it's still nothing
they can't stand for even a single blow

They can raise 1 million man regular army

and have another 9 million reservist ready.
Just small arms.
Perfectly suitable in the HILLY region of LAOS, NORTH VIETNAM and NORTHERN MYANMAR.

perfect buffer!

danke

Didn't China get bloodied by vietnamese MILITIA alone in the last war?
Vietnam HELD BACK against C ...

ha, that was ancient history so to speak
and China didn't want to go for an all out war, it's just a warning shot to the viets
but during the battle of the paracel islands in 1974, vietnam warships were all sunk,
with no capability to respond to the superior air & naval forces of China
Please don't shoot, I'm just a babe.

Chile - 2, Spain - 0

Yes, you are right Mr. Chinesedisgrace!

The WARZONE was HILLY region of the North Vietnam-South Guangxi region.
It's HARDLY possible to wage a HIGH TECH war in such a situation.
Casualties will be HIGH even with AMERICAN high tech FORCES.

Massive ARTILLERY BARRAGES, precision missile strikes are pretty useless in the RAPIDLY moving battle condition in such a condition. It's a SET BATTLE condition that MILITARY COMMANDERS tries hard to avoid.

From MILITARY COLLEGE case studies - massive barrages on SOFT SOIL in sub tropical FOREST BLANKETED region is INEFFECTIVE.

basically WW1 trench warfare kind of fighting.
CHINA basically DID PRETTY WELL, as the INVADING FORCES numbers was quite inadequate.
The BATTLES was fast STORM TROOPERS movement, artillery barrages, FAST ENGINEER CORPS clearing for light logistical movements.

China did not have the 3x numerical superiority needed for such combat with the MIGHTY Vietnam Army!

so, it did quite well.

cheerios!
