Versatility Of The Chinese Military Shovel


I never would have guessed that someone could make an 8.5 minute video on the uses of a single shovel.

Pretty awesome feat of Engineering.   Seems to work pretty well for them in the video.

  1. I like the ‘Stripes’-esque music. Makes me wonder where Sgt. “Big Toe” Hulka is…

      You could probably stow a pair in the wooden stock somehow if you wanted to :P

  3. Well I guess if that’s the only tool/weapon the Chinese army gives to its soldiers then they better make use of it every way they can. :p

    Seriously, it looks like a well thought-out and engineered piece of equipment. It definitely won’t be sent here.

    Now what can the Spetnaz do with this shovel? That is what I want to see, reminds me of the video of the Spetnaz guy doing a front flip and throwing a axe into a tree.

      I’m pretty sure that Spetsnaz can kill both hostages and terrorists just as effectively with a shovel as they did with gas…

      I think a better question is, what can’t Spetnaz do with the shovel? :P

      Is there a video of that upside down axe throwing? I’ve only seen a picture.

  6. What a great spade! I wish I could get my hands on one and have one garden tool to end all gardens!
