A battalion attached to the PLA Tibet Military Command recently received a batch of third-generation Dongfeng Mengshi vehicles, Chinese media reported on November 21. This type of vehicles has been seen being operated by PLA border defense troops stationed in the northern slope of the Himalayas, where the oxygen level is 40 percent lower than at lower altitudes. These vehicles have thicker armor and more powerful engines that are suitable for border defense missions.

Recently, new intelligent equipment has also assisted border troops who use remote monitoring systems to watch mountain passes bordering other countries. At 4,500 meters, soldiers used to take four days to patrol areas under their charge, but the intelligent system can achieve all-day, all-area monitoring with just four soldiers. The system uses a multi-functional scope that can adjust to different landscapes like forests and snowfields and record what it has "seen." Drones help cover terrain ground-based monitoring cannot reach.

Advanced logistics support equipment, including smart warm clothing made of graphene, portable oxygenators and multifunctional dining vehicles can provide warmth, supplemental oxygen and hot food to soldiers serving in the harsh conditions of Tibet.
