This is either a praxis post, or a scoop on Chinese Peoples Liberation Army military secrets. The mysterious "co-rotating Mongolia afterburner."
Remember this praxis post on the Chinese Multi-Function Military Shovel WJQ-308? Well, a buddy of mine, like me a practical militaria junkie (also known as "gear whore"), procured two of these from the PRC. They just arrived. One for him and one for me. They cost a pricey $90 each, so I'll have to find something to trade him.
I will have my son do a field test on this equipment, but one thing jumped out at me from the instructions. Go look at "Function 6."
"Function 6: Climb the high tree and building is so difficult. If you can find a rope or wire rope and shovel co-rotating with Mongolia afterburner. . ."
"Co-rotating with the Mongolia afterburner?" Wow. Mysterious. Sounds like a night-time horizontal maneuver of an Ulan Bator prostitute. WTH?
It has to be the code name of some new PLA weapon, right? Do I need to, like, report this to the DOD?
