    Do Taiwanese soldiers still do the goose-step? I saw a video years ago; everybody was goose-stepping including their military academy cadets.

    And they got some AAV7A1 amtracs to replace the LVTP5s that our Marines are still using. But then the Taiwanese are just as adept as Filipinos at squeezing some more mileage from ancient equipment; their Navy had some American World War II destroyers (became museums recently), and they phased out their 50's vintage C-119 Flying Boxcars only a few years ago, the last air force to do so.

    Still, I wonder how they would fare against the PLA, with its vast manpower base.
