Civilian technicians hired by the military were inspecting and repairing the clouded leopard armored vehicle that was preparing to participate in the exercise. Huang Junmin said that due to various problems in vehicle maintenance, the military often hires such temporary workers to maintain the vehicles on occasions where there is a demand for "acting" from the media and high-level government officials, so as to avoid the "outsourcing" of the vehicles that go into battle.

The reporter is inconsistent and cannot provide you with relevant explanations.”
In any case, the current and retired military officers interviewed for this survey, including retired army lieutenant colonel Huang Junmin, retired navy colonel Chang Hanqing, and retired army major general Bei Chen, agreed that the current defense minister of Tsai Ing-wen's government, Yan Defa, is a representative of the military for many years. A figure with no way to govern the army, he is good at pleasing politicians and creating occasions for show and photo. At the same time, he is constantly obstructing the reform within the national army, and he is unwilling to make any repairs in response to the current low and terrifying combat power of the national army.
