South China Sea Fleet Completes Three-Dimensional Landing Exercise

 

A three-dimensional landing drill started recently in waters of the South China Sea. A landing ship flotilla under the South China Sea Fleet of the Navy of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) cooperated closely with a marine brigade and an aviation regiment of the PLA Navy and conducted the drill on such subjects as three-dimensional delivery of landing troops and capturing target position, the Chinese Ministry of National Defense announced.

The reporters learned at the drill site that the “two-dimensional landing” operation began immediately after receiving the order from Ji Hongtao, commander of the landing ship formation. The cabin doors of the landing ships that had sailed into designated waters were opened quickly and the landing troops sailed their assault boats and launched sudden and violent attacks against the target position.

Meanwhile, the “vertical landing” operation started instantly. Helicopters carrying commandos took off from the warships, flew to the depth of the target position and vertically delivered the commandos to the ground so as to cooperate with the landing troops in making a breach.

In the waters where the landing ships assembled, the hovercraft carrying landing troops and amphibious assault vehicles left the dock for the beach at a high speed. After landing, the reconnaissance element immediately carried out infiltration operation. Eventually, the target position was captured successfully by the officers and men.
