According to a new report from the U.S. National Defense University, China’s military leadership shares the same Achilles heel with the Russian military. They are not cross-trained for live combat. In other words a soldier stays a soldier, a sailor remains a sailor. They do not venture outside their area of expertise. However, some experts believe that the CCP’s middle and low-level officers are gradually getting better, even so, the Chinese military still has two major and fatal weaknesses that erode the foundation of the military.
