The Lù Zhànduì are the marines and shock troops of the Chinese army in Wargame: Red Dragon.
In the past, the Chinese PLA or People's Liberation Army military didn't have a specialized marine corps and used regular troops to invade islands. When the PLA's invasion of the Republic of China's islands of Kinmen failed in 1949, the PLA lost its chance to fully invade and conquer Taiwan. Because of this loss, during the 1950's, it established the PLA's first Marine Corps or "Lù Zhànduì" which, by the end of the Korean War, consisted of 110,000 marines.
However, in 1957, the Marine Corps was disbanded due to the abandonment of plans to invade Taiwan and was officially reestablished in 1979.
Possibly the most over-priced shock infantry armed with equivalent of RPG-7 like Mot.-Schützen, Spadochroniarze and Vysadkari. With only 13 AP, they need to land at least two shot with the LAW to kill anything with more than 2 frontal armor. Although good at killing infantry like all shock infantry, they are priced at 20 points, a vestige from the version where they were a 15 men team. Compared to other PACT shock infantry like previously listed they have the same loadout, with 3 more rockets. Thus offering the same anti-infantry capability as the 15 point PACT shock infantry while being 5 points more expensive which makes a big difference when pitched against other 15 point shock infantry in a huge forest fight. The 3 extra is quite useless since the only live long enough to fire 6 rockets once in a blue moon, and besides, the LAW is too inefficient to justify the price hike for 3 more rockets.
