Chinese weapons were mostly given or stolen from other countries. Without them,
The Chinese wouldn’t have been able to help the Americans defeat the Japanese and the other countries without these weapons. As I said, these weapons were not made by the Chinese but, they were still able to work them properly and used them very effective. The Chinese used Ka-Bar knives that were made from the Koreans originally and then made by the United States. They also used the M1911 which was a handgun, the Lockheed P-38 nicknamed “lightning,” which was a plane that dropped bombs. Also, they used bayonets and the Johnson M1941. They also used other weapons in World War II, but I will only talk about these.
These combat knives were used by the Koreans in the beginning, then the Americans started using them. It was used as an utility knife for the Marines. These knives were used to do daily tasks such as pounding tent stakes, driving nails, opening ration cans, and digging foxholes. Also, they were used to defend from close range attacks.
