Beijing, China (XNA) Sep 15, 2006
The Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) concluded its first military exercise involving long-range maneuvers on Thursday morning with a "combat" exercise deep in the grasslands of north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.

The "Red Army", a mechanized infantry brigade from the Shenyang Military Area Command that had trekked more than 1,000 kilometers to the combat area, launched a fierce attack on the positions of the "Blue Army" - an armored brigade from the Beijing Military Area Command.

Combat vehicles, including tanks, self-propelled artillery and infantry fighting vehicles, moved quickly through the smoke on the combat field.

Antijamming operations were conducted to nullify the effect of electromagnetic jamming; attacks on computer networks were met by computer defense networks; shells launched by a range of artillery crisscrossed in the sky.

The tank units from both sides then engaged in a "battle" using laser imitation systems.
