Due to the high demand for military personnel, the coup military council has been falsely recruiting soldiers from the air force who have never fought in a war under the pretense of training and sending them to the front line without training.
According to internal sources in the Nay Pyi Taw Air Force, after the Military Council Army started at the beginning of this year and replaced the rear offices of various air forces with female soldiers, the surplus male soldiers were recruited and sent to the front lines without sending them to training.
“The Air Force replaced the female soldiers in the office slots and then called the male soldiers to attend training. At least 20 people are called for each unit. And sent to the front line without training. Last month, some Air Force personnel were injured on the front line in Karen State,” said an internal source from the Nay Pyi Taw Air Force.
After the coup d’état in May 2021, the military council army is still facing heavy resistance attacks from local PDF forces, NUG government’s PDF forces and ethnic resistance groups in various parts of Myanmar. Currently, Kachin, Karenni, Chin, Mon, Karen, Shan, Tanintharyi, Sagaing, Magwe and Pagu regions. There are continuous battles between the army of the Military council and the revolutionary forces, and casualties are also occurring on both sides.
In particular, from the Military Council’s side, the battalion commander-level major military council fraudulently recruited soldiers from the air force under the pretense of training and sent them to the front line without sending them to the front. “The army is in need of strength, so I will falsely call people from the air force for training once again.” They are quite worried about those who will be sent to the front line,” said a military source.
Currently, because there are few people joining the Military council army, recruiters pretend to be businesses online and falsely recruit jobs and recruit them into the army, persuading those who commit crimes that they will be exonerated if they join the army, Organized homeless youths living on the side of the road and recruited them into the army. It has been investigated that it is being done in various ways. Due to the low number of applicants for the Tatmadaw cadet courses, the Military Council had to push back the application deadline twice and relaxed some of the qualification requirements.
