Chinese Army Developed Online Wargame
This is a really weird story:
After setting up its own cyber-warfare team, China's military has now developed its first online war game aimed at improving combat skills and battle awareness, state press said Wednesday.
"Glorious Mission" is a first-person shooter game that sends players on solo or team missions armed with high-tech weapons, the China Daily reported.
How is this different from any of the dozens of other first-person shooter games with realistic weapons?
And does "training" on these games really translate into the real world?
EDITED TO ADD (7/13): The original story by China Daily is more detailed and easier to follow.
