A landing ships unit of the South China Sea fleet of the Chinese People's Liberation Army Navy has recently conducted a military drill in the South China Sea to strengthen the fleet's real combat capacities.
The drill started with the "red" side, made up of the Jinggang Shan (999), and Kunlun Shan (998) warships and helicopters and hovercraft, speeding to the designed waters in the South China Sea.
However, the red side met with assaults from different directions on the way and by relying on the advanced radar system, the red side locked the attacking targets from the "blue" side and carried out precision strikes.
Failing in the air raids, the blue side launched missile attacks on the red side.
The red side immediately started its electronic interference system to collect and analyze the information about attacking missiles and launched multiple interference shells and successfully shook off the missile attacks. Then the red side arrived at the designated area and launched landing operations. While a number of hovercraft was rush-landing, a number of copters took off to carry out projection of troops deep into the island.
Thanks to the cover, helicopters and hovercraft of the red side succeeded in their landing.
"We've tested and improved the amphibious warfare systems featuring amphibious landing ships and new hovercraft by collecting battlefield data, and training synergetic cooperation," said Jia Zujing, adding that "the drill has helped us accumulate data for real battles, and lay the foundation for our success," said Jia Zujing, team leader of the Military Operation Section of one landing ship of the fleet.
