Abstract : This publication is a reference aid for significant military terms as interpreted and defined by the People's Republic of China. For each entry, the English-language heading is followed by the simplified Chinese characters used in China, their pinyin romanization, and their standard telegraphic codes (STC). An authoritative Chinese definition is given when available. This is followed by a commentary in which available official Soviet and United States definitions for the term are included for comparative purposes; concepts and terminology are clarified as necessary.
