Recent claims that China's aircraft carrier platform will be officially put into service and claims that China had successively test-fired its new-model long-distance strategic missiles have attracted military fans and netizens' close attention. But personally, the information that attracted my attention was the recruitment of China's air force in 2012.
The recruitment work of China's air force has come to an end and 87 students from the Tsinghua University, Peking University and Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics joined the air force of China.
It reminds me of saying in China's air force, "We want third-generation planes and we more want third-generation soldiers."
When third-generation planes just joined the air force, many units equipped with them found a problem: Third-generation planes were put into service and joined in trainings and military drills, but the phenomenon of "using equipment of third-generation planes but using tactics of second-generation planes" appeared. Regarding this phenomenon, many air force units expressed "wanting third-generation planes, and more wanting third-generation crews."
This saying exactly reflects the relations between the military equipment and men in the military construction.
In fact, the battle effectiveness of a military unit consists of only two factors of the equipment and men. To certain extent, the factor of the men is not less important than the factor of the military equipment at all. Regarding the developing course of battle effectiveness, a sentence that is frequently mentioned is that the qualities of the men and the development of military equipment must go simultaneously. We could even say that the qualities of the men should go ahead of the R&D of the military equipment.
