raid Liufeng An Editor’s Note: 8 11, “Beyond 2009″ series of cross-examination of real soldiers based military exercise began. The four military exercises and arrange to cross the four formed mobile division, which is the first time in the history of the PLA.
So much theater to participate in a series of military exercises meaning lie? Why at this stage to achieve a new form of exercise? This week, “Chen Hu Troops” will work with you concerned about “Stride 2009.”
around, “spanning 2009″, overseas media are concerned. This is the first time military organization that spanned more than military nature of the exercise, there is an unusual natural significance.
“beyond 2009″ is actually the form of a change in training methods, this is a new organization of training.
Prior to this, our military has held cross drills, but usually to a single military organization and implementation, such as “Beyond 2009″ This theater also organized four exercises the first time.
break zoning, boundaries armed services, institutional constraints of bottleneck
army is now large military system, that is, across the country is divided into Several theaters, each theater army is mainly responsible for the direction of this theater of combat. This system should be said in the past under the Cold War, against a stronger enemy, our military to bear the pressure of large-scale foreign aggression, such a context generated. In this context, a large military system has its benefits.
With the development of this system gradually reveal some weaknesses.
we have seen, any one of the U.S. combat divisions can be anywhere in the world of the battlefield environment and the direction of battlefield combat. For example, the U.S. 101 Airborne Division fighting in Asia, but also in Africa, Europe operations, but also in the Middle East operations.
and our military system has traditionally been a great regional constraints. Our operations research, combat training, combat object most are concentrated in the war zone, so that combat units is difficult to form a global capability.
like “beyond 2009″ This series of cross-exercise, in fact, gradually breaking the shackles of the traditional system, improve the ability to fight global forces. At the same time, the boundaries of military services are gradually opened. For example, the exercise highlighted the Army Air Corps and Air Force on the level of participation and the participation of the Air Force is no longer a simple demonstration, but was given a more important task: “In accordance with the requirements of the Department of the director, to bomb a certain to vote, to actually fight the real fight we must, in order to exert more pressure on ground forces. ”
this way is actually a revolutionary change, it organized training for the reform of our departments is a major breakthrough way.
closer to the real
change in the way of this organization and training, but also military training and testing closer to the real, more in line with large-scale non-war military operational requirements.
the future we will have to face the war, or face massive military operations other than war, can not rely on a single military force. If the slightly larger scale combat operations, it must involve more than one theater, multi-branch force joint operations.
“beyond 2009″ exercise is precisely a manifestation of this approach large-scale military operations in war or war requirements. For example, through these years we face the fight against snow disaster relief, some large-scale fight against floods and other such non-combat operations, you can see, involving military forces completely beyond the scope of a single, but different military, different large-scale cross-theater mobility forces, this mode of action and the “cross-2009″ is quite close to the form.
test of military exercises to improve the efficiency
recent years, the army launched a new training program in the organization’s effectiveness in the implementation process, the to pass this test of the training exercise to carry out assessment. Like “beyond 2009″ This multi-theater series of exercises at the same time, apparently to improve the efficiency of the inspection of the exercise. Otherwise, an exercise is only a test of a military division, to the war zone a few of our all test again, then take a very long time. Now we use this multi-theater series, cross-exercise can be in a relatively short period of time, a comprehensive assessment and inspection forces to implement the new program results.
test of military exercises to increase the difficulty
past, organized within the framework of the theater exercises and drills, both red or blue, are in the same theater, the terrain familiar to each other, opponents cooked, cooked operational plans, and even combat fighting habits and familiar ways. In this case, would clearly be difficult to reduce.
now cross-district military exercises this multi-theater, the theater is faced with an unfamiliar environment, unfamiliar opponents at the same time, test, test their own but also by other theater of the “Blue Army” troops to act, which is obviously increases the difficulty of assessing, improving the military organization of the training effect is highly desirable.
to strengthen military and competition between the horizontal comparison
we see that four military regions are doing the same series of exercises, each theater belongs During the exercise, apparently troops each other to compare their performance with each other will naturally form a competitive mechanism. Such horizontal comparison and competition for improving the training effect, strengthening the assessment of the difficulty of the test is helpful.
In fact, as a new change in the way of organization and training, “Beyond 2009″ will bring a huge impact, the impact on improving our level of training, to improve to win the next high-tech warfare capabilities, improve response to large-scale non-war military’s ability to provide better conditions.
theater series this is the more exercise the significance of the cross.
