October 28, 2020, 06:10 (CST 05:10). Chinese Central Military Commission Integrated Command Post Bunker Conference Room in Beijing, China.
Chinese Central Military Commission Vice President Kan Kuichou succinctly reported the status of damages from the Korean tactical ballistic missiles. Then, there was a call from the command centers of Army Groups 39 and 16. Army Group 39 reported that 50 percent of their forces were lost, and they were moving to the rear area. Army Group 16 reported that 40 percent of their forces were lost, and each battalion spread out to construct trenches and camouflage themselves.
President Xi Jinping had no way of relaxing his expression after receiving such a report. Not accepting the common sense of Korea conducting a surprise attack against China, he found it hard to accept the reality that the main unit of ground forces and the Northern Theater strategy battalion that had prepared for war for over 20 days were destroyed like fallen leaves.
