In a narrow sense, the counter-attack on self-defense against Vietnam lasted less than a month, but the two countries have had several armed conflicts in the following decade. This is a rare group of photos of our troops entering vietnam in the early hours of february 17,1979, when chinese tanks crossed the red river to invade vietnam's old street province.
Although the war still exposed our army's backward military concept, unable to cooperate between land, sea and air, or rely on manpower to fill the shortcomings, but also played a national power, such as the United States in more than 30 bombers escort, two regiments of troops, also took more than a week, more than 300 killed before taking the 315 heights of Dongxi, Vietnam.
But our army used only two companies of strength, less than three hours to end the battle, so the PLA is still the king of land. The picture shows the real PLA fighters on duty after the capture of the Kuantang Bridge.
The picture shows the PLA soldiers who are celebrating the victory, thanking these most lovely people, it is you who have exchanged blood donation and sacrifice for the long-term stability of my great motherland, and salute all the war veterans!
