8 月 15 issue of the “Liberation Army Daily” published entitled “military information and cultural construction of a new theory” of the article, said innovation and the development of military information culture, we must boldly learn from foreign military experience. As highlighted in the text, information is the core issue of “talent”, and in order to soldiers, especially the senior officers to enhance the overall quality of the PLA is to put more officers sent overseas training or exchange, including information technology to accelerate the the pace of military modernization. U.S. think tank, “Jamestown Foundation,” released in August, “China Brief,” online magazine, the PLA in recent years “studying hot” to do the analytics.
virtues of the two countries are learning key
“China Brief,” said that in the 1990s, the PLA sent overseas each year visit the training officer does not exceed 100, increased year by year into the 21st century, especially in recent years, the officers sent overseas each year an average of 200 or more. Currently, the global acceptance of China’s military students reach more than 20 countries, many Western countries.
People’s Liberation Army in the choice of learning objects have a clear plan, the United States and Germany is its most valued of the two countries. Although the United States military academies did not accept the Chinese military students, but the interaction between the two armies are still frequent. The article points out, the PLA will the U.S. military as the main learning object, precisely because the U.S. military operations in the field of information has accumulated rich experience, and the PLA is currently great emphasis on information warfare, so military experience and theoretical information on the PLA to accelerate the construction of a direct reference value.
Germany by the Chinese army as a focus of learning objects, mainly because Germany is the first modern establishment of a comprehensive system of national staff, particularly in program development and command coordination, etc., there are a lot of practical experience. Even the experience of most German mechanized war era, but the headquarters of the PLA to rationalize the functions of reference has a higher value. In addition, the German military in recent years and vigorously promote the transition to the synthesis of light and the direction of rapid response, which many Chinese are driving with the “new revolution in military affairs’ consistency.
“China Briefing” analysis said that with the continuous development of the PLA strategic thinking, military officers trained overseas content constantly changing. 1980s, due to worsening of relations between the Soviet Union, Chinese officers were sent to the United States and Western Europe are more the main content is to observe and record. These officers are the first contact with the West after the reform and opening up of Chinese soldiers advanced weapons, including aircraft carriers, including equipment, left a deep impression on them. They later became the PLA’s main foreign exchange, some of whom become China’s military attache in the countries of the United Nations, overseas peacekeeping force liaison officers.
into the 1990s, Chinese military officers abroad to study the content of training to advanced technology-based. Especially with the surge in the number of Russian arms sales to China, there has to be able to master the advanced weapons and high demand for professionals, therefore, the PLA sent to Russian military academies surge in the number of officers. Today, these officers have been studying in Russia, many people grow into the backbone of the PLA, such as the Chinese Air Force has an ace test pilot training three times to go to Russia during the Russian National Test Pilot School, won the award of the international test pilot certificates, by Russia praised. After returning, he has participated in and completed more than 10 major research and test mission for the new generation of Chinese-made F-10 fighter made outstanding contributions to the design shape.
the 21st century, the PLA is no longer satisfied with the individual areas of technological progress, with increasing emphasis on high-level Chinese military joint operations and information warfare, a growing number of “studying abroad” background of the officer to become chain of command of the force. Xinhua July 2007, a report said the PLA combat units in the Army-level leadership team members, who accounted for 10% of study abroad.
special forces benefited
“China Briefing,” also believes that the arms on the PLA, through the most benefit to overseas training number of special forces. Material from the public, China’s special forces assignment of students have special units for the young commander, training programs focus on professional areas, such as mountain warfare, counter-terrorism and some foreign military expertise in special projects.
In this regard, the largest in China reported that the PLA special forces in Venezuela to accept the “Hunter School” training. The school’s training to combat state, even life-threatening, said to be foreign students into the school before the signing of “life and death.” In 1992, China sent two soldiers to go first, “Hunter School.” In this way, China’s special forces not only learned the art of jungle warfare tactics, also introduced a number of standardized training methods, such as “move together over logs,” and so on. Venezuelan military had said, over time, significantly enhance the strength of the PLA special forces, special forces of China early training emphasizes individual skills, and now they pay attention to tactics, and this response to the PLA to enhance its ability to non-traditional security issues will undoubtedly play a catalytic role.
