The command and confrontation drill of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) code-named "2012 Confrontation in Nanjing" was successfully held on November 27, 2012 in Nanjing, capital city of east China's Jiangsu province. This is the PLA's first independent confrontation drill between military academies and combat troop units. With five major highlights, the drill will play a positive role in promoting command capability of command-and-staff organs of the PLA troop units and post-oriented education level of military academies.

Advanced operational concepts including "precision and rapid warfare" are enriched and developed

The confrontation drill applied the PLA's advanced operational concepts in recent years including target-centric warfare, precision and rapid warfare, vertical lightning warfare and the like, which has thus made the setting of training contents more reasonable, the design of training situations more real, the innovative characteristics of fighting methods more distinctive, the actual-troop orientation more highlighted, and the combat command more accurate and efficient.

Embryo of simulated "Blue Army" of academies is developed

In recent years, the simulated "Blue Army" acted by combat troop units has functioned as a grindstone in previous confrontation drills. In this drill, the PLA's first simulated "Blue Army" consisting of experts, professors and scholars from military academies has exerted a positive effect on improving combat effectiveness of the PLA troop units with their theoretical attainment, strategies and professional skills.

According to a briefing, the simulated "Blue Army" of academies will be geared to the needs of the whole army and oriented to normalization and specialization.
