It’s been snowing across northern China lately, and that means fun in the snow for the lucky Chinese troops stationed in the arctic wilds of the Great Xing’an Mountains in Heillongjiang.
With temperatures at minus 30 degrees Celsius, the training was geared toward improving the soldiers’ willpower, endurance and snow crawling ability.
But, judging from the pictures, the PLA is actually warming up a little bit, because these soldiers were not even required to take off their shirts, rub snow on their bare chests or dunk their faces into basins of snow.
However, not sure if this is a good thing. How are these guys going to know the best way to keep warm?
