The North Sea Fleet of the People's Liberation Army Navy has completed a military exercise in western areas of the Pacific Ocean.

The exercise was the first large-scale action aimed at testing the coordination between different forces.

A seven-vessel fleet participated in the exercise, China Central Television reported. A number of records were broken in the exercise, which was conducted in early and mid October, the report said.

The exercise focused on defense techniques against warplanes and submarines, according to the PLA Daily.

The fleet, with the Harbin as its commanding ship, conducted multi-disciplinary training in different areas of the west Pacific after it entered the ocean through the Miyako Strait, an important waterway linking the East China Sea and the Pacific.
