Soldiers training (photos from PLA GuangZhou military region).
PLA soldiers generally carried fake rifles on the training ground, these training rifles r made of lead weights (heavier than real QBZ95 rifle) to increase the training intensity.

Well, i can understanding.
Anyway it's ur own understanding or current West feelings about China, some Western media called it "China threat". But most of Chinese ppl living in China just care whether their living conditions get better or rich, whether themselves and their generations could live in a peace & stable country and whether China has the strength to protect national interests. Here nobody cares the next superpower or somebody will replace others becuase it's a further dream not current real life.
A multi-polar world, China just one member of current world. Each country has its business and interests in the world, China/ Europe/U.S/ Russia trade each other for their respective interests, and China's development can't continue without any country.
Honestly i don't know why the West afraid of China's development? Thousands years China(old China and old Chinese dynasty) didn't disturb any Western countries. When Columbus and Magellan intended sailing to west,NOT BECAUSE they had known there's the American continent at West of Europe, BECAUSE Both of them wanna explore new sea routes leading to the mysterious CHINA instead of "Silk Road".
China hopes to become friends with any country, more friends always much better than adding a new enemy. And China currently is the biggest developing country in the world，this country is still a long way to go.
BTW forget the superpower,it's not the goal of the Chinese ppl. We're just sharing and enjoying the success of the China's development.
But the earth can only supply a limited amount of people, now we can live in peace, but if the global population keeps rising we're going to have to fight for water and resources...
The Photos, Answered your question and my comment..
This is Russian ones..
Ths Kunal Biswas.
Here we can see Russian ammo auto-loaders and China ZTZ96/99's auto-loaders, but does it answer simonov's question about ZTZ99A2's ?
I think NO until all of us can see the internal photo of ZTZ99A2 turret, currently didn't see it yet.
