PLAN Blue vs. Red Americans
A recent article in the May 2024 issue of Proceedings discusses how the People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) has embraced wargaming “with an almost religious zeal” (Martinson, R. D. “The PLA Navy’s Blue Team Center Games for War.” Proceedings. May 2024. Vol. 150/5/1,455). As author Ryan Martinson points out: “[The PLAN] have studied wargaming’s many potential advantages, from helping the PLAN overcome its lack of recent combat experience to shedding light on how to employ its new weapons and platforms to maximum effect—and they want more.” Readers will likely assume that the PLAN is playing catch-up to the U.S. Navy (USN). Reality, though, is not so clear. Martinson’s article is but the latest writing that emphasize the U.S. Navy needs to get more serious about the use of a dedicated opposing force (OPFOR) in wargaming… like the PLAN apparently already does.
