Army launches exercise to attack hilly island
Adjust font size:

The Jinan Military Area Command of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) launched a seven-day exercise to attack "Blue Army" targets on a mountainous island on Saturday, according to Army sources.

The exercise, dubbed as "Queshan 2007", is divided into four stages -- change of combat readiness, long-distance maneuver, combat plot, and combat.

The 10,000-member division, armed with heavy equipment, will conduct a long-distance maneuver to arrive at the exercise ground in Queshan, Henan Province, central China. Afterwards, the division will battle with the "Blue Army".

During the exercise, there will be round-the-clock attacks under the circumstances of an electromagnetic war, so as to test PLA's field troops' capabilities in such a situation, according to Major General Wang Jun, general conductor of the exercise.

The "Queshan 2007" exercise is designed to resolve problems exposed in last year's "Queshan 2006" exercise, so as to increase the fight capabilities of the Army, he said.

On October 12-18, 2006, the PLA headquarters organized the "Queshan 2006" exercise and checked the fighting capabilities of the Army in an all-around way, which led to a heated discussion on the reform of military exercise.

Some officers from the headquarters and military academies who participated in the last year's exercise have been invited to compare the results of the two exercises.
