"This page has two main aims. The first one is, of course, exploring the fairly under-appreciated armor of China in the 1925-1950 period. During this time, various factions, such as the myriad of warlords, Nationalists (KMT/GMD), the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the Japanese Imperial Army, French and British policing forces in treaty ports (mainly Shanghai), and others all operated AFVs of some description.

However, the second aim of this page is to give an understanding of the context in which these vehicles operated. For example, it may make no sense to the reader for the USSR to supply the KMT with AFVs in the late 1930s when the Chinese Communist Party might seem a more likely candidate for Soviet assistance. For this reason, constant references to the political, geographic, and military context will be made…."

They had quite a mixed inventory as I had seen before. But I do like the full color drawings of the article.

I recently visited the Military Museum of the Chinese People's Revolution, an excellent museum with a great collection of many of these vehicles. You can see a full blog post with pictures here The Tactical Painter
