 ROFLMAO

The Chinese used footage from Top Gun and played it off as their own military footage for training their recruits.  After the blogosphere got hold of it, it was removed from CCTV.

Everyone lies to their recruits.
If they did not lie to them, how could they get them to do stupid shit ?

When I joined it was the tail end of the cold war.
There was a picture/poster of a spetsnaz soldier doing an obstacle course in full battle gear, jumping over a wall in a gas mask.
Anyway story was if the russians can do it, so can we. Anyone who has worn a gas mask knows the difficulty of breathing, claustrophobia, etc.
Luckily they stopped doing a lot of the training when i had joined. But early we would do 3 day exercises wearing gas masks etc.
The justification was the spetsnaz soldier pic. Later on it came out the pic was a fake. And probably the higher ups knew it.
Or when you have shoddy equipment, the higher ups say it is perfectly safe.

Chinese just need to get their propaganda machine going a little better.
This poster with the "great leader" with the mythical battle ships behind just does not cut it anymore.

Don't worry in 5-10 years the chinese will be able to make american quality propaganda, at chinese prices.
Then the americans will outsource all of thier propaganda to china Smiley
