Army launches electromagnetic war game
Adjust font size:

The Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) started a war game in central China's Henan Province on Saturday, to test its fighting capabilities under electromagnetic circumstances, according to Army sources.

A division of the PLA's Jinan Military Area Command, with about 10,000 soldiers and officers and 1,000 vehicles, will launch attacks on a hilly exercise site in the coming seven days.

It is aimed to check the results of the Army's training for electromagnetic battles over the past year, so as to improve its capabilities of commanding, long-range maneuvering, firepower, integrated defending, and comprehensive logistic work.

The year 2007 is the first year for the whole Army to carry out training on electromagnetic combat.

The PLA division used to be a motorised field troop, and a few years ago, it was changed into a light mechanised one.
