LOOKS LIKE THESE COMMUNIST TROOPS HAVE BEEN ISSUED THE M1935 GERMAN HELMET, UNIFORMS COULD BE LIGHT-KHAKI LONG SLEEVE JACKET TROUSERS, SHOES, WATER BOTTLES, HAVERSACKS AND WEBBING SUPPORTED BY STRAPS. COULD THESE TROOPS BE APART OF THE 40TH ARMY OR THE 8TH ARMY. THE COMMUNIST ALSO OPERATED REGIMENTS, BATTALIONS, COMPANIES, PLATOONS, GUERRILLA AND SMALLER UNITS. LOYAL PARTY MEMBERS: BUT WE'LL WATCH YOU THE ARMY WAS CONTROLLED BY THE COMMUNIST PARTY, ALL COMMANDERS WERE LOYAL PARTY MEMBERS AND POLITICAL OFFICERS WATCHED AND REPORTED ALL ACTIVITY OF THE TROOPS AND COMMANDERS TO THE PARTY BASED ON SOVIET TEACHINGS AND METHODS. GUNS & AMMO: THE COMMUNIST CAPTURED LARGE AMOUNTS OF AMMUNITION SUPPLIED BY THE U.S. TO THE NATIONALIST EVEN CAPTURED JAPANESE WEAPONS AND AMMO WERE USED. THE SOVIETS TURNED OVER CAPTURED ARMS AND SUPPLIES TO THE CHI-COMS. THANKS FOR THE TANKS: THE CHI-COMS OPERATED CAPTURED U.S. AND JAPANESE TANKS, TRUCKS AND ARMORED FIGHTING VEHICLES LATER SUFFICIENT NUMBERS OF RUSSIAN TANKS AND OTHER VEHICLES WERE SUPPLIED TO THE(CHI-COMS)CHINESE COMMUNIST.
