The Eastern Theater Command of the Chinese People's Liberation Army continued joint combat exercises around the waters and airspace of Taiwan today.
The drills focused on the PLA's capabilities in joint anti-submarine operations and sea strikes,
while yesterday's exercises tested the capabilities of striking land targets along with long-range air targets.
The air force deployed early warning aircraft, bombers, jamming aircraft, fighter bombers and fighter jets
to conduct reconnaissance, airspace control operations, strikes on ground targets, and air support.
Supported by naval and air combat systems,
the air strike forces, together with long-range multiple launch rocket systems and conventional missile troops, conducted drills of joint precision strikes on targets.
The operation tested our tactics in systems warfare under information-based conditions,
and honed and improved our capabilities to destroy crucial island targets with precision strikes.
Multiple bomber formations flew over the Taiwan Strait, while several fighter jets conducted exercises with destroyers and frigates.
