An army aviation brigade under the Nanjing Military Area Command (MAC) of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) organized an air-to-ground assault drill on the morning of November 14, 2012. Based on the C2I (command, control and intelligence) system, the brigade realized integrated operation of large aircraft fleet in multiple types in the drill.

"In the past, the planning of air routes took much more time," said Sheng Jianzhong, chief of staff of the brigade. "Now, with the C2I system, the time needed to transmit such intelligence as operational plan, current situation and air route to all the combat helicopters can be shortened to one-tenth of the original time."

Chen Jian, leader of an air fleet of the brigade, told reporters that precision and accuracy are a must in the command and control of a coordinated operation involving large fleet of aircraft in multiple types. Errors were inevitable in the pilot's visual judgment of the directions and air battle situations in the past. "Now the C2I system provides precise intelligence of the entire air and ground situations, which has significantly helped improve the accuracy in coordinated operation," said Chen Jian.

The C2I system and its application mode for army aviation troops developed by the brigade have been recommended in the entire Army aviation units of the PLA.
