The Chinese Navy

Unread postby DarthGaddafi » Fri May 29, 2015 3:39 am

I haven't been overthrown by rebels. I'm still around, just busy.
I am, when I can, working on these new charts styles. Lately current China.
I have had to learn a lot about Chinese uniforms for these charts and quite interesting.

Anyway I put alot of attention to detail in these so they take time. Here is a work in progress on PLAN

Thanks.

Here are current PLA officers. Chest badges on the left indicate: ground forces, second artillery, or central military commission (a joint station).

The sleeve patches, which I am still working out, further indicate unit, or military region of attachement.

The chest ribbons on right are some type of length of service bars. Maybe for each station held? Still working them out.

I've tried to draw it from ebay auction :) there are Service Ribbons which are worn only by officers from 2LT to GEN. Second ribbon in first row indicates the level of command (from platoon to vice-chairman of CMC)

I don't understand if Service ribbons are accumulated through the officer's career or each ribbon is replaced when the level changes. :)

Well, I suppose such ribbons is some equivalent to rank insignias, so I think when the person is promoted to the next level he just replaces the old service ribbon with a new one. Otherwise you can imagine what kind of a salad consisted of service ribbons only the person has to wear on his chest))

Looking at the attached images, Dorward's conclusion must to be correct. But here is another puzzle; the officers have several ribbons for the same number of lenght of service years. I wonder if the length of service is not denoting total service, but service in command, for different command levels.

Looking more closely on the should straps of the image with several officers, two officers have one star with a ribbon? below. What kind of rank insignia are these? They are not in the chart. They wear vice-company command level ribbons.

Yes, the General's salad looks quite curious - probably, Luke is right, each service length ribbon may imply the length of this or that position the owner occupied during his military life.

Another peculiar thing: six-pointed stars on shoulder straps:

And, according to their service ribbon, looks like the vice-company level (maybe some color distortion?).
Does anybody know which military branch are these officers of?

The six-pointed stars are administrative officers. There only two grades. The one in the picture with the star and a banner underneath and a more senior grade with the star and general's wreath.

Interesting! Thanks))
So, concerning a set of service length ribbon on the picture of a General - looks like, for example, this General, being a young Lieutenant, was a company commander assistant for some years, and gained one ribbon. Then he became the company commander, spent in this rank some other ranks and gained an additional ribbon. Then - the battalion level (for example, the head of staff), and gained another ribbon for some years, which was added to previous ones. And so on. Could it be in a such manner?
