BEIJING, Jan. 16 (Xinhuanet) -- Dozens of J-10 fighter jets have joined a live ammunition drill conducted by the Chinese Navy’s East China Sea Fleet.
The fighters were organized into ten formations and used several tactics to approach the target more than a 1000 kilometers away. The drill also included strong electromagnetic interference to simulate a real combat scenario. The fighters covered for each other in a concealed raid and the targets were hit.
The drill was launched after the General Staff of the People’s Liberation Army issued the Military Training Instructions for 2013. It said all army forces and armed police should strengthen combat and information warfare training and step up the modernization of the military, so it can engage in and win wars.
