how do militaries gain experience during peace time?

how do militaries gain experience during peace time? I’ve heard China sends troops to UN peacekeeping missions for experience. Do other nations like the US do the same? If not do they do anything else? If not, why?

    There are two types of things you do in a peacetime army. One is battle drills and the other is field exercizes. Battle drills are where a unit takes one of its specialties and focuses on doing that one thing over and over. A field exercise is basically a mock battle, where a larger mix of units is maneuvering against a team playing opposition and they fire blanks and whatnot at each other to simulate battle. When you're not doing that you're doing things like going to shooting ranges or getting training in secondary skills like "combat life saver" or going to different military schools. Field exercizes can be anything from a company going out and opforing against itself in small scenarios, to rotations of brigade sized deployments in immersive environments like training centers. There is also taking out large, high APR loans for house furniture, marrying strippers, and getting DUIs to occupy your non-deployment time. Quit a bit of things to do, really.

    Yes, we bankroll the UN so we are involved in peacekeeping deployments. We also run exercises for half the planet, like Cold/Nordic response in Norway and Talisman saber in Australia. I think we do something in Japan too, but idk what its called.

        Its both. Countries that deploy on UN missions have a set standard of equipment that they must have, in terms of uniform and body armor and the US pay to make that happen. So supposedly, shitty little joke militaries like Tonga will send people on peacekeeping missions like Lebanon in order to get body armor that they otherwise couldn't afford. We specifically funded female body armor for Ghanaian and Zambian peacekeepers a couple of years ago, for example.

    That sounds moronic as frick. Peacekeeping missions have vastly differing mission profiles and even if peacekeepers get into firefights, that experience is in no way applicable to actual real conflicts against peers. Also the amount of soldiers in them are relatively small so even if you'd get applicable knowledge, there's really no effective way to implement it institutionally into military when all the experience was gained by couple of hundred infantry grunts duking it out against starving nogs with AK's. In short you don't gain any useful experience in combined arms, air arm, naval action or strategy planning against peer opponents. But if you think driving around in APC's for 12h patrols and pissing in bottles and giving them to local children is useful experience for military personel to have, then it might be a smart idea to send your troops in peacekeeping missions.

      I question the value of peacekeeping missions as practical training. In a war, presumably, your ROEs are going to be wildly different than the standard UN procedure of "stand there watching a genocide while you can legally do nothing but be mad about it."

      Of course UN missions are different from normal combat but I feel like anything is better then nothing. And it can maybe other non combat aspects of war right?

          Technically, they did not hide. They just turned tail and ran.

      To be honest fails on UN deployments isn't bad, as long as you learn from it.

    Send peacekeepers to active warzones, pray that they don't run away or get mogged; both are national embarrassments

    Send observers to military exercises, FOBs, etc.

    The latter requires your country not to be a part of the enemy of the free world because training exercises in that part of the world mostly involve staring angrily, looking aggressive and chest thumping exercises as opposed to actual military science and applications

    you can rent out troops by the PLAGF
    with troops most commonly being rented out for entertainment purposes such as serving as extras or partaking in education events training foreign groups forces private militias mercenary groups etc or aiding private security companies or even just to serve as guards for large businesses at factories or warehouses as this has in the past been cheaper than hiring a security firm though this has become cheaper over tiem some large companies such as tencent and alibaba have their own security companies which pay to have pla soldiers to serve as instructors and trainers
    as chiense law allows for the raising of a private armed group or force for security purposes domestic and abroad as long as you have gotten the proper permits and requirements which will require background checks
    as well as registrations for the militia group as well as background checks and regular inspections of both the owner and his property but also of employees and the militia itself safety training will have to be done regurarly and any items procured by the employeer will have to be registrered by the government and gained permits for by the government with the government requiring forewarning before such purchases and acquisitions and any and all such organization or privately employeed armed persons will have to get property licensing and registration for usage of force as well as for carrying and using arms any movement of such persons will require permits as will any of the equipment they plan on using also you armed group or armed or hired individuals just as private citizens owning guns

    or as labour for large construction projects or farmers

    yes you can do that in China the law is not any stricter on acquiring permits and purchasing than here in Danmark punishment for crime committed with ownership of a weapon is however far harsher that being death

    any individuals that own a firearm by law can and will be called upon by government or other legal authority or by law enforcement to take temporary possession of your weapon for use by said authorities for their needed purposes
    though this is not restricted to firearms owners and the government can call you in to aid in maintaining peace during civil unrest or riots or for catastrophe for a number of other reasons people can be required or called upon to help on such matters

    (this can be aiding in riot suppression as has happened a few years ago in southern china where armed individuals where called upon protest turned riot in order to peacefully reestablish order other similar situations has also happened)
    usage of a firearm will require seperate permits such as hunting or sporting
    and separate permits will be required for different types of firearm such by fire rate or type semi or fully automatic or burst type of propellant cordite black powder smokeless powder and caliber
    as well as loading difference magazine or single fire or tube
    and range and concealability
    modification will require other permits as will firearms manufacture and also separate for parts manufacture or assembly
