* ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert2 Red Alert 2]]'', a previous ''Command & Conquer'' game, featured the opposing armies of the Allies and the Soviets. The Chinese weren't happy about the fact that they weren't included, so macho fans made tons of game modifications, which added the PLA as a PurposefullyOverpowered faction that simply invalidated the use of any other.

* One of the enemies fought as Novaya Russia in the TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture campaign of ''VideoGame/EmpireEarth'' is China. Mostly an aversion, as there's no mention of whether they're still communist at this point, and their military consists of the same advanced units and robots as the rest of the game. Oh, and they're researching TimeTravel.

* Chinese soldiers serve as {{Mook}}s during the [[CaptainObvious Chinese Embassy]] levels in the original ''VideoGame/SplinterCell''. [[spoiler:Less of a straight example, since they are led by a [[RenegadeRussian rogue nationalist general]] in league with the Georgian government]].

* The final chapter of ''VideoGame/{{WorldinConflict}}'' has China allying with the Soviet Union against the United States and NATO. A loading screen shows them launching offensives in Asia against South Korea, India, and Taiwan. To make matters worse, they are sending a whole bunch of fresh troops to the American west coast to reinforce the Soviet invaders in Washington State (and given just how many troops China has at it's disposal that's a VERY BAD thing). So the final three missions of the game have the U.S. forces desperately trying to liberate Seattle and drive the Soviets off American soil to stop the Chinese. (It's stated in-game that the Chinese do not have the ability to stage an effective amphibious assault of their own which is why they need the Soviet beachead.)

* The Chinese military plays an important role in ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2''. If you complete all the optional Strike Force missions, they will also assist you in the final mission.

China has reasonably capable air forces, but only in its local region. Most of its technology is Soviet in origin, starting from the Mig-17 to the newest order of 48 Su-35s. The naval branch is medium sized and transitioning from a primarily coastal defence force to one with regional capability. More modern nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers (the first one is the ''Liaoning'', a retrofitted former Soviet aircraft carrier) are much-discussed potential additions. The PLA also has [=ASBMs=][[note]]anti-ship ballistic missiles; exactly how suitable a long-range ballistic missile is for attacking a moving target remains uncertain[[/note]], missiles to destroy aircraft carriers.

Aircraft carriers are seen as a top priority for the PLAN, largely as a matter of national prestige; Chinese officials have expressed the belief that "all great powers have aircraft carriers", and thus consider it essential that China must have them.

Despite the trope name, the Chinese do not employ attack helicopters and gunships in the same manner as the U.S. or Russia, and most Chinese "attack" helicopters are utility helicopters that have been refitted to fulfill support roles. This is expected to change following the introduction of China's first true dedicated attack helicopter, the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CAIC_Z-10 Z-10]], which is nicknamed 城管, or "Urban Management Chopper" for a joke that the chopper might be deployed by law enforcement offices to use them on street vendors. A second dedicated type WZ-19, upgraded from Z-9 or Eurocopter [=AS365=], is also being deployed.
