In what will surely add fuel to an already tense situation, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA), through the state-run Xinhua news agency, is planning to change the training strategy of its army aviation unit from logistic missions to combat operations. This comes to light as more armed helicopters have joined the service.
The PLA Daily, the official newspaper of the organization, has said that they are shifting their training “from building the capacity for non-war military actions to core military actions”. Among missions that they will be conducting are long-distance tasks, large-scale offshore operations, attack coordination with other units, large-scale airborne operations plus boosting the IT technology for its operations.
