ships, pirate ships attacked the Chinese fleet escort
2009 年 4 2, I followed the Navy’s “Shenzhen” ship, “Huangshan” a ship from Zhanjiang naval sail, went miles beyond the Gulf of Aden, off the Somali coast perform escort missions. During the 142 days of the day, I and the People’s Daily, Xinhua News Agency, Liberation Army Daily, China Central Television and the People’s Navy News reporter with six, with more than 800 officers and soldiers escort boat, fighting side by side, the common experience and record of the second batch escort the entire process.

second convoy escort mission formation of the first performance, he launched a positive contest with the pirates. April 17, “Shenzhen” ship and escort fleet together for the first nine merchant implemented with escort, strength, strong team, the pirates will not dare to start. In the evening, the line to the eastern Gulf of Aden waters, the first return convoy formation returned as planned. Aircraft in two formations, just minutes 16 minutes at sea cruising the 19 pirate ship to see me “Shenzhen” single-ship escort ship that can take advantage of merchant fleet will be quick to hit me. Suspicious ships each ship trailer 3-4 boats, people on board activities, pirate ship I ship from the recent chain of only 1.8.
“an anti-piracy deployment!” The ship immediately into a state of war. I deployed with the ship correspondent breakdown by position of each battle, into the ship’s combat formation, attacks on the pirate ship carried me the whole evidence taken, a clear record of suspicious target features, tools of crime, as well as its close, threat, attack ships sports situation, a complete record of my expulsion warning, shot blocking and other important disposal action, keep my pirate ship under threat or attack video evidence. Will encounter the first independent escort attacked by pirates, and some comrades running out of patience, made the first convoy formation is not your turn support. Formation commander, deputy commander of the South China Sea Fleet, Rear Admiral leisurely what Chi House, commanding, waved waved “Let them return as planned!” Then issued a decisive road command: change array position, before the deportation, Ming guns deter resistance, increased vigilance, helicopters on standby … … After more than an hour to compete the contest, my powerful deterrent to the pirates forced the evacuation to leave.
won the first battle, but the contest continues with the pirates. April 26, “Shenzhen” escorted 15 ships a single merchant ship, sailed into the 3-way column, stretching several miles, and the scene of spectacular. However, many merchant ships were protecting, formation depth long, has become a pirate attack target. At 14:21 on the 27th, found that 2 batches suspicious formation in front of goal, check out the helicopter before; 15:34, 3 boat fast approaching merchant fleet, “Shenzhen” ship fired a warning flare, the helicopter flew over the boat circled , open bright searchlight light, turn force the boat to escape; 19:28, 15 batches of the sea appeared suspicious target 68, as hit me like wolves, “Shenzhen” ships and the onboard security commandos have launched flares, flares warning, ship-borne helicopters launch expelled. After a half-hour standoff, the pirates see no exploits, turning to flee.
the contest for two consecutive days of the Chinese navy’s prestige hit. Thrilling battle like this many times we have experienced, during the formation of a suspicious convoy target 505 approved 767 ships, expelled 129 ships, 393 merchant ships to escort the success achieved by retaining 100% secure merchant, ships its 100% security.
feelings of loyalty to the noble mission
usher in the Gulf of Aden, the first ray glow
away the last hint of sunset
under the hot sun
sway the loyalty of the mission
PASSING track in
describe regrets youth
reports and interviews in the convoy, I was escorted from time to time and great deeds of ordinary soldiers moved. “Shenzhen” ship mechanical and electrical department has five soldiers, all year round at 50 degrees Celsius, the roar of the motor position value of more war, more times down a 700 ml glass to drink seven cups, and rarely on the toilet, were sweating , my body is often wet. Aviation sector is responsible for helicopter classes mechanical mooring work, the laying of the helicopter skid landing nets, one to three hours, burning sun, men are often covered with sweat, his face was red and tan, a layer of skin off another layer. There Chuishiban custodian Zhangshu Jiang, responsible for cold food storage and preservation work out every day wearing a coat dry for several hours in refrigerator. From the People’s Liberation Army 425 Hospital nurse Huai Xia and Peng flower, to participate in two consecutive batches of escort missions, with consummate skill, friendly smile and attentive care, to escort the soldiers to provide thoughtful medical care, known as the “fighting in the Gulf of Aden The ‘Nightingale’. ” The first convoy of six to participate in special operations, responsible for “the long voyage that” onboard the tanker escort mission, the first convoy formation with delayed return time, to stay to perform the task. Too many stories like this, the organization interview time, I thought to be a touch of the soul to be a baptism.
feelings of loyalty to the noble mission, but also from the admiration of the professionalism of reporters. Convoy operations, the reporter’s gunpoint to shoot pirates evidence, to engage in a helicopter, boats and other high-risk job shooting, but also in the storms and other harsh environments live coverage, where there is danger where they were rushed. Encountered ill treatment of Merchant Marine, transport supplies, transport special operations, the reporter should ride in a boat on choppy seas to track coverage. Not only that, they often battle position during the day to interview, overtime at night deadlines, often a boil overnight. Escort more than 140 days, an average of six correspondents press one or more every day, reported the convoy continued, appropriate scale, steady tone for convoy operations to create a good atmosphere for public opinion.
officers and men from the escort ship to reporters with their loyalty to the mission of the noble spirit, reminds me of Clausewitz’s famous phrase: “Honor the heart of war convinces the military to obtain the real vitality of the soul.” A Army has such a powerful spiritual pillar, will be invincible.
experience to people-centered care
glow dance nights get cool,
ocean waves roaring mad.
escort fear evil and dangerous,
people-caring warm heart.
formation of each batch of escort missions in a row four or five months at sea, crew is always on high alert, with a small space ship, hull swing shaking, mechanical noise and electromagnetic radiation, it is easy to negative emotions such as irritable men. To make men feel at ease escort, must rely on meticulous humane care.
formation close to the task characteristics, close-up processes, close to the actual men in the gathering strength, active atmosphere and work hard to make real enthusiasm, by the opening of “Ocean Theater”, organized deck games, quizzes, variety show, extensive psychological counseling, regular “family connection”, “overseas teaser” campaign, the convoy soldiers continued to maintain a good state of mind, strong will to fight. In the process, I and reporter with the ship also came in handy, give full play to their strengths reporter, founded the “Blue Shield TV”, set Blue Shield News, the newspaper guy, Illustrated escort ocean interviews and other columns, timely reports on the officers and men side of things around them, become escort action a “cultural feast.” As the formation of the political leader, I also led the planning and design some interesting cultural activities, such as the Dragon Boat Festival art show, contact the military young actor, singing through the telephone connection to the officers and men, greatly aroused the enthusiasm of officers and men of sentiment, known as the “cross the ocean of songs.” “August” on the eve of contact “space hero” Yang Liwei, “Love Fury ship model non-commissioned officers,” Gui Chuan six army soldiers escort message to interact with the heroes, escort officers and men feel so glorious, inspiring.
In addition, the formation through tapping the potential transformation of desalinated water to ensure that officers and soldiers on a day to wash the hot water bath; the installation of the arbor, the soldiers on duty to avoid exposure to the sun; arrangements for doctors and nurses daily rounds, regularly scheduled physical examination; launch fighters ideas, think of ways to regulate food, and so on. These reflected in all aspects of the implementation of the bits and pieces of people-centered care is the best thinking. Only for the officers and men put themselves sake, like the officers and men are thinking, do the necessary officers and men, men are worried about the solution, in order to provide for the completion of major military operations and a strong ideological guarantee of spiritual power.
glory for the country to experience the glory
merchant ships when you see the one writing the “motherland Hello”
when listening to cries of “thank you, the Chinese Navy” is
one kind of agitation in my mind leapt
China – I’m proud of you
“pay tribute to the Chinese Navy ! Long live the motherland! … “when the” shining sea “was political commissar Wang Wei Sheng with the crew three times a rallying cry the slogan, the tears once again blurred his eyes. Drifting at sea for nearly 30 years of Wang Wei Sheng, a calm temper had the tenacity to face the storm. But the first time in the Gulf of Aden from the motherland to see the heroic Chinese warships, let Wang Wei, 55, St. not their own.
local time at 18:20 on May 20 began, “crystal sea” in the vicinity of the Strait of Bab el-2 has been awarded eight pirate ship siege. At the critical moment, in more than 60 sea miles away, “Huangshan” ship through VHF phone call: “Please you insist, you came to my ship is!” When the ship saw the Chi to the motherland, the crew on deck barking and jumping on a happy face covered with tears. Wang Wei Sheng said that the Chinese navy is strong, powerful motherland, our spine is more hard.
different with the Chinese merchant, a foreign merchant in China feel more of a big country style. The second batch of escort fleet for a total of 85 foreign merchant ships to provide escort to rescue four foreign merchant ships attacked, then released retaining a foreign merchant, the outstanding performance of the Chinese Navy has won the respect of foreign merchant in China and praise.
“Help! Help! My being attacked by pirates!” At 8:15 on July 13, “Yellow Mountain” patrol ship in the standby area, near the Liberian received the “elephant” oil tanker of distress call. 8:25, “Huangshan” ship to 25 high-speed motor to the incident sea, ship-borne helicopters were scrambled, flew over 300 meters pirates hovering warning, flares, detonation bombs, Corsair ships and helicopters have come to see rescue, to give attack “elephant” wheel, steering attack near the Maltese “Polly Luo Nisi ’round. Overhead helicopter fired flares again, knock expelled pirate ship missile, forcing it away. The whole operation lasted 1 hour and 32 minutes. Be rescued by a merchant VHF, said: “extremely grateful to the Chinese Navy!”
4 24, “Yellow Mountain” by pirates release ship was ordered to bear the Philippines, “Stewart strength” was the take care tasks, “Huangshan” ship to ship not only complements the main staple food, mineral water and medicines, will be escorted to its more than 500 sea miles outside the safe waters. Philippine Vice President Noli de Castro praised the Chinese navy escort to the Gulf of Aden waters, as other countries including the Philippines to help ships truly reflects the style of a responsible power.
convoy operations in the organization of an interview, I asked the soldiers what is most proud of? Almost everyone answers, when you see the aircraft hit by care providers, “I love you, China”, “Thanks a strong navy to escort me” and other slogans, the heart will feel sincerely proud, proud as a powerful country, a powerful Navy and proud, proud for the Chinese military.
