It has been rumored for a period that China’s Second Artillery Corps is going to have its name changed, as Second Artillery Corps is an old code name used for confidential purposes and differing from ordinary artillery troops.

It was reported last night that China has established Rocket Forces formally, but today related reports on major media websites have all been deleted. Even so, such news have been spread on social media like Weibo and confirmed by related officers and media personnel. And photos of armband and celebration meeting of China’s Rocket Forces have also been unveiled. And this is regarded as a part of Chinese military reform.
