Thousands of officers and men from a troop unit under the Xinjiang Military Area Command (MAC) of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) maneuvered for nearly a thousand kilometers while closely cooperating with combat forces of more than ten services and arms including the army aviation force, special operation force and aviation force of the air force, successfully completing the actual-troop test drill of joint tactical corps in late autumn in a combined tactics training base at the foot of the Tianshan Mountains.

Under the unified coordination of the joint command and control center, various battle groups such as ground mobile combat group, special operation group and air assault group teamed up their firepower flexibly. More than 10 participating detachments of various services and arms including armored force, electronic countermeasure force and aviation force of the air force performed their own duties respectively.

The commander of the troop unit said that this drill tempered troops' systematic, information-based and in-depth integrated combat capability based on training base.
