ChiComs's New Showers- Cause for Concern?

The Peoples Republic of China (ChiComs) announced today a new shower truck that can be set up in 5 minutes and allow 20 men to shower simultaneously.

The ChiCom press is stating this for the "comfort" of troops.

The ChiComs made a point of announcing that this could be set up in less than 5 minutes. After a week in the field, why is it necessary to have a shower vehicle that can be rapidly deployed? Is this truly just for hygiene?

In my opinion, probably not. Water showers are also used for decontamination from biological, chemical and nuclear weapons. The only military purpose to have a vehicle that can be so rapidly deployed is for this purpose.

I do not believe it to be unreasonable to believe that the ChiComs were sending a message that they are prepared for engagements that may involve these horrific weapons.
