Chinese army with German equipment during WWII

Post by xiqing » 20 Oct 2005 15:44

Before 1937 when the sino-japan war fully started, China equiped 4 divisions with the equipment imported from German. They were the divisions with highest battle effectiveness of Chinese army before US trained and equiped Chinese army.

I've seen a lot of photos like these. Hans von Seekt greatly influenced the equipment and the military doctrine of KMT army in 1930s. He even commanded KMT army's operations against communist partisans who were also led by another German, Otto Braun sent by COMINTERN.

Is somebody asks why the already nazi-germany solds weapons to China and vice versa, why they buy from Germany?.

There were traditons, see. In 1890-ties for example they bought some modern weapons from germany when threatend by war with Japan. Among them modern heavy ships. Now they hadnt great use of these, as they hadnt enough with ammo. Only few rounds for every cannon did I read somewhere.

In 1930's, Chinese gov't wanted to enhance it military power and capability to cope with the threaten of Japan. At the same time, due to the Versailles Treaty, there were many german army officers retired and seeked for a job. Chinese gov't hired them as military consultant. Then it was natural that Chinese army begun to equipped with German weapons. And German really provided strong support to China until Japan joined the Axis.

Also, a lot of captured German equipment was sent over to China after the war by the US.
