The first female special operation company of the Army of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) was officially established in a brigade under the Beijing Military Area Command (MAC) on the morning of March 30, 2013. It is learned that incorporation of female soldiers in combat troop units or combat positions has become the development trend of army building in countries around the world.

Currently, the marine corps of PLA, the PLA Hong Kong Garrison and the Nanjing MAC have respectively founded the "female amphibious reconnaissance team", "female special operation platoon", and the "female special operation detachment". These servicewomen have become an irreplaceable force in implementing special operation missions.

The members of the female special operation company of the brigade under the Beijing MAC will follow the standard of "being capable of fighting and winning battles" and complete several dozens of special force training subjects, such as parachuting and air-landing, and gradually obtain the capability to carry out special operations and the military operations other than war (MOOTW).
