BEIJING – Military giant shows for the first time the command center of its People’s Liberation Army Missile Force. The video was published on the occasion of the 92th anniversary of the Chinese Armed Forces on August 1.
Until recently, the nation’s nuclear and conventional missile force made its decisions in a lock-down place guarded by the Chinese government. The reason is the high degree of secrecy of the organ.
Celebrating 92 years of its Armed Forces, China decided to show for the first time the command center of its Missile Forces. The video shows a wide variety of armaments and their military personnel.

The J-7 design upgrades offer highly advanced capabilities, including composite materials, to develop a sturdier, lighter aircraft structure, glass cockpit, new delta dual wing, multifunction displays, helmet displays and other technology. last generation.
As a result, the Chinese company Chengdu continued to develop versions of the MiG-21 under the J-7 designation until the end of 2013. Despite the closure of production of the J-7, the Chengdu company developed other versions of the Soviet fighter.
That’s because China produced JF-17 Block 1 fighters, relatively based on the J-7 project, however, with a totally different fuselage, making it unrecognizable compared to J-7.
According to Military Watch , another aircraft inherited from Soviet fighters is the JL-9, a combat and training aircraft that has maintained fourth-generation combat capabilities. Despite having some similarities to the JF-17, the aircraft has a considerably reduced cost.
