For the Chinese New Year meal of soldiers stationed in the plateau, the logistics support department of the Central Military Commission developed a new type of special dining ration to be dispatched to the front line.

This is part of the menu. In fact, there are three versions of cuisines, consist of the Northern-style cuisines, Southern-style ones and the Sichuan-style ones.

vegetarian ONLY ain't an option, does not fit the conditions and needs of the military men who need lots of nutrition and energy, moreover under harsh winter at the plateau. vegetables are provided as part of the cuisines.

Type 15 tanks advanced to the plateau 15式坦克挺进高原 Military Reports 军事报道

The Type 15 light tank, which was shown in the military parade to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China in 2019, has the characteristics of light weight, good protection ability, high information technology and strong attack power. It is another leap forward in the domestic tank technology. It is suitable for fighting in mountains, jungles and high and cold regions on the highlands. Recently, this type of tank entered the plateau training field, which is the first time that the Xinjiang Military Area Command troops mounted the Type 15 light tank. (2021-02-01)

Type 15 lightweight tank enters service with PLA's Xinjiang Military Command

By Gabriel Dominguez | Janes | 2021-02-01

Chinese state-owned television revealed on 30 January that the China North Industries Group Corporation (NORINCO) Type 15 (also known as ZTQ-15) lightweight battle tank has formally entered service with the Xinjiang Military Command of the People’s Liberation Army Ground Force (PLAGF).

In its ‘Military Report’ programme China Central Television (CCTV) noted that an undisclosed number of Type 15s was recently delivered to a PLAGF regiment in Xinjiang, making it “the first lightweight tank to join the military command”.


It said the Type 15s deployed to the district have been fitted with new “plateau” engines and oxygen-production equipment to enable the vehicles and their crews to operate more efficiently at altitudes of more than 4,300 meters above sea level.

No details were provided about the number of Type 15s on order for the command but CCTV showed at least 10 examples being transported to a training ground in Xinjiang.

Also shown was a medical evacuation variant of the ZBL-09 8×8 armoured fighting vehicle being handed over to the command.

CCTV said that the new vehicles are expected to “greatly enhance the combat capabilities” of troops operating in the region.

Designed to operate in mountainous areas and over terrain that requires a low track pressure, the Type 15, which according to the Ministry of National Defense (MND) officially entered PLA service in late 2018, is also known to be fielded by the Tibet Military Command, which is responsible for the Tibetan Plateau, and the 75th Group Army, which is responsible for guarding China’s ‘southern gate’.

"The Type 15 tank is easy and flexible to operate and has high mobility, as it is equipped with a new engine designed for plateau missions and an oxygen producer. It also uses new armor materials and stealth technologies, so it has reduced weight but better protection and stealth functions," Zhang Hongjun, a master sergeant class one at the regiment, told CCTV.

The new tanks are much lighter than the People's Liberation Army's Type 96 and Type 99 tanks, allowing it to become a rapid response ground-based weapon, with a maximum top speed of 69 kph (43 mph).

"It also has advanced fire control and weapons systems, and extra battlefield situational awareness capabilities, particularly the ability to identify friends or foes, providing significant convenience to the troops," Hongjun said.
