Images emerge of PLA's newest infantry weapons

by Amael Kotlarski

Images have emerged on Chinese social media platforms showing a comprehensive line-up of the People's Liberation Army's (PLA's) newest infantry weapons.

None of the weapons shown in the images, which were posted in early June on Weibo, feature their official military designations, although some of them are already known.

The display included the 9 mm CS/LS7 sub-machine gun (SMG) that was observed during the 1 October 2019 military parade in Beijing. This weapon is thought to be meant as a replacement for the QCW-05 SMG, chambered in the 5.8 × 21 mm cartridge.
