The concentrated training for "joint fire coordinators" organized by the Nanjing Theater with the support from the Nanjing, Shanghai and Hangzhou military training cooperation area came to an end in late April in Hangzhou of east China's Zhejiang province. By now, a total of over 4,700 commanding officers and staff officers of the troop units of various services and arms within the Nanjing Theater have participated in the similar training. Various services and arms have broken with the independent training mode of a single service or a single arm and joined hands in cultivating commanding officers for joint operations, which has formed a normalized and standardized pattern in the theater.

Geared to the needs of future information-based theaters, cultivating the new generation of commanding officers for joint operations is a key subject on accelerating transformation of combat capability generation mode. Under the guidance of the general headquarters/departments of the PLA, the Nanjing Military Area Command (MAC) has explored and established a mechanism for jointly cultivating commanding officers for joint operations in the theater together with the East China Sea Fleet, the Air Force of the PLA Nanjing MAC and a base of the Second Artillery Force (SAF). After three years of practice, they have blazed a trail in jointly cultivating commanding officers for joint operations by the three services.

The reporters saw at the drill site that with the "military training cooperation area" of the theater as the joint training platform, commanding officers from the army, navy, air force and the SAF simultaneously participated in command operations, program development, situation-handling and drill-directing. They discovered problems and solved them in the joint training as evidenced by having successively resolved more than 30 difficulties in joint command, operations and support that are based on information system and established joint operation unit modules of the three services. So far, nearly 2,000 commanding officers have participated in the drills of more than 80 joint operation subjects organized by the theater.
