The Chinese Military has some pretty interesting toys. Some of them are pretty crappy, some of them are knockoffs, others are just impressive, but none are like their latest coach bus.

Appearing on Chinese twitter-like Weibo, the People's Liberation Army's Second Artillery Corps now has a big camo-painted coach bus. So what is the purpose of this bus? Is the Second Artillery Corps going on tour? Are they hosting Jay Z?

The answer, none of the above. The new coach bus is instead a mobile "internet" vehicle where the soldiers can cool off and play a few rounds of what looks to be Counter Strike.


It's unknown what exactly the bus will be used for, but for now it's just interesting to see that the Chinese military is letting their soldiers let off some steam, especially since the Second Artillery Corps manages and operates the Chinese nuclear arsenal.
