A People's Liberation Army (PLA) unit of Jinan Military Area Command kicked off a four-day military drill at Weifang military exercise zone on Monday.
The drill involved more than 10 squadrons from the PLA's army, navy and air forces garrisoned in the command and will test battle abilities under the united formation of the forces.
"It is also expected to improve the abilities of united reconnaissance, command control and comprehensive logistics," the chief director of the drill Major General Zhu Wenyu said.
The Weifang military exercise zone, located in east China's Shandong Province, was completed in 2001 as a regional synergic training facility.
