China has the largest army in the world.
The number of women in the army is itself staggering at about 2 million
Speaking just on the Female Airforce, according to a Xinhua News Agency article the first six ”loyal and fearless” female pilots flying with the Xian JH-7 fighter bomber have just finished the training required to perform all-weather air-to-ground missions and are now able to attack and destroy targets located on unfamiliar ground, hidden by fog, using precision munitions.
The female fighter pilots, currently assigned to a PLAAF (People’s Liberation Army Air Force) Regiment, were selected from more than 20 million girls graduated from high school in Sept. 2005. After attending the flying school, they were assigned to a front line squadron in March 2011, where they conducted advanced training that included formation flying, low altitude attack, live firing exercises using conventional weapons.
The Xinhua article depicts the female pilots as “skilled” “loyal” and “fearless” and provides also a group shot of the six JH-7 pilots with flight suits and helmets. Wow, not bad for a totalitarian state where the information on women (and women’s rights..) is usually hidden or classified as secret.

Below these female fighter pilots are among some 328 female pilots recently recruited and trained by China’s People’s Liberation Army Air Force. They don’t just look good, they can roar through the skies faster than the speed of sound. And they don’t just fly normal air force missions, they also take part in disaster relief flights, research-oriented trial flights and afforestation. They have also flown in China’s 60th national day parade.
10 thoughts on “China’s Women Army”
I enjoyed your article on China’s Female Army. I always find it ironic when I see beautiful women who are trained to kill smiling back at us.
This is one for Chinese pride. It shows that Chinese culture establish a deep respect for women and their contributions to society.
“Women hold up half the sky,” Mao Zedong said. Since 1949, Chinese women have shown progress in every front.
Mao was wrong, men hold up the whole sky while women sun tan under it. They haven’t “progressed” much, they’ve just beginning to.
Ha, Ha, Chinese Communist Party do not discriminate women and especially those willing to fight for the motherland. Good on them.
This figure is wrong. Women in Chinese military is estimated around 325 plus thousand and not in millions. USA population is around to appro. 300 millions.
Noted with thanks,
China has approx. 4 million ready to combat soldiers and around 10 million militias or reservists. It is the world largest army.
You are so awesome! I don’t suppose I’ve read through anything like
this before. So nice to find another person with genuine thoughts on this topic.
Seriously.. thanks for starting this up. This web site is something that is required on the internet, someone with some originality!
Why so many armies and so many people??
Because: “TO THE GLORY OF GOD THE FATHER.”
iSA.66.1615 ¶ For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.16 For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.18 For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory.
ALL NATIONS SHALL BE GATHERED TOGETHER AGAINST ISRAEL. The Lord Jesus Christ will destroy the armies of the world at the Battle of Amageddon.
Re 16:16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon
Phil.2.5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every Name:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Why will Christ destroy the armies of the world? That His Father will have all the GLORY!
