All these rumors of a coup in China this week have been good for one thing here at DT, this pic of the what appear to be the PLAâ€™s fairly new Type 05 mobile howitzers painted in digital camouflage. The vehicles pictured are largely believed to not be part of any coup force, they seem to have just been posted online as the rumor frenzy built.
Still, chatter has been flying about this coup for days now. It would be nice if Beijing could just let us know that allâ€™s well in the authoritarian state.
While an actual coup hasnâ€™t happened — as far as anyone can tell — something big has apparently gone down in Beijing.
