A joint taskforce of the North China Sea Fleet of the Navy of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) consisting of totally 7 ships including the “Harbin” guided-missile destroyer and the “Shijiazhuang” guided-missile destroyer conducted a routine high-sea training in waters of the western Pacific Ocean in early and mid October of 2012, according to the China Central Television (CCTV). This is the first time for the North China Sea Fleet to organize such a large-scale joint taskforce to conduct multi-arms coordinated training in the waters of the western Pacific Ocean and has set several new records.

It is learned that the taskforce of the North China Sea Fleet of the PLA Navy entered the western Pacific Ocean through the Miyako Strait, an important route connecting the East China Sea and the Pacific Ocean. The flag ship of the taskforce is the “Harbin” guided-missile destroyer.

The taskforce conducted trainings in different areas of the western Pacific Ocean on multiple subjects including security patrol in important waters, comprehensive attack and defense, fishing escort and naval escort, and battle-damage rescue in actual-combat environment, highlighting trainings across day and night, trainings in different time periods at night and confrontation drills. They also carried out mission-oriented trainings by making full use of the complex sea conditions and the diverse and variable electromagnetic environments in the sea areas of trainings.

The taskforce also organized and commanded warships and helicopters for operations based on the information system, strengthened the combat troops’ actual-combat confrontation drills and conducted specialized and refined drills on subjects including organizing security patrols, precision strikes, anti-submarine actions in ocean and comprehensive attack and defense, in a bid to improve the high-sea defense and combat capabilities of the joint mobile taskforce.
