Sino-Vietnam border, Beilun into the sea, boundless expanse of blue water and swaying of intoxicating ripples. Facing the sun, a new patrol boat flying the flag waves gallop draw a beautiful arc of the tail.
spring in March, a reporter following the Guangxi border Tuanzhushan Military officers along Beilun Port patrol post, witnessed by the officers and men as the “water scooters,” the new patrol boats of the “valiant and heroic.”
4 years ago, reporters have to follow the patrol officers and men of this post too. Today, people in front of the scene is still “matter” and no longer: patrol boats have been upgrading the entire hull clean lines, light, strong and vigorous like the Osprey ready to attack; spacious cabin of the boat, electronic radar, satellite navigation system and other equipment readily available; the cab of the electronic screen, a flashing red line clearly marked out on patrol track. If it is not personal “guest” about modern “sailors”, the reporter is difficult to imagine such words in front sight.
“Water Qingqi” well-deserved reputation! Patrol a wide surface of the water into the Beilun, reporters will experience the high-speed navigation of the stimulus. Bridge the large electronic display screen, quickly jump out of the boat’s real-time speed: 26, 32 … … faster and faster, and it is the fastest sailing speed of up to 40 knots.
correspondent noted, there are several electronic cockpit screen, shown above, a variety of data and graphics. The reporters know, the original is the most advanced navigation equipment, including satellite navigation systems, radar displays, electronic charts, various navigation parameters are clear. Open the door, listen to whistling wind, splashing waves hit the bow; steering the boat tail, I saw the boat off, the water quickly leaving a straight line of waves, such as sliced ??general.
“Beilun in many shoals, shallows, past patrol, border residents of the plan is rented sampan, and sometimes even insisted on their own bundle of bamboo rafts. With the accelerated pace of modernization of our army, and now Our patrol tool has changed to the third generation. “talking about his beloved” horse “, have experienced three generations of old and new equipment, update the” red flag the driver, “Zhou Jun, special” arrogant “:” This new guy is allotted to the post in 2006, the lower river boat design experts who have designed specifically for our post-survey, especially suitable for shallow waters dash, is truly a ‘water scooters’。”
with a steel hull of the boat superstructure with aluminum structure to the center of gravity lower, hull design reduces the resistance movement, it is not only comfortable and beautiful, corrosion resistance, anti-wave, motor ability, and particularly high degree of information technology. By microwave radio transmission systems, a range of sea conditions in the company returned in real time, the boat’s satellite navigation system so that officers bid farewell to the fairway to judge by the experience of history, has greatly enhanced the ability of troops patrolling control side.
Yuehua Jian, patrol the narrow waterway into the Beilun. Zhou Jun, pointing to the screen on the track said proudly: “previous experience to judge by the channel, believe it may touch the ‘red line’, and now with this device is close your eyes do not have to worry about cross-border.”
forward soon, the river covered with mangroves Central appear a little sandbar. Lance Corporal Ding Jin handheld digital camera to a small sandbar on the scene shot from different angles, these images by boat on the microwave transmission system, the company rapidly returns the control room computer. Along the way, Ding “shutter” strobe, so that reporters truly felt the “information patrol” means.
boundary rivers of the day, as the child’s face, that they please. Have also bright and sunny, then suddenly the river from a storm, fisherman near the boat returned quickly shelter. See the worried eyes of reporters, Zhou Jun easy to say: “If on the past, we have to dock shelter now with this ‘baby bumps’, the general storm did not do nothing it can do against eight storms.”
“Now, we pass through the track, is a standard national boundaries, which is a means of using information technology to build a new steel line of defense, on a mobile patrol is Beilun digital boundary marker.” university graduates this year, a long whistle Deng Haibo emotionally told reporters.
Dongxing port of the friendship bridge is the end of patrol. Reporters looked at my watch, to complete a full line of new patrol boats to patrol the river takes less than one and a half hours, before the completion of such a line of patrol for at least 3 hours.
return gallop, tucked behind two new patrol boats long, “White Dragon.” Reporters could not help thinking: only changes patrol thousands of miles across the southwest border line information technology and company changes in miniature. In recent years, new patrol cars, video surveillance systems, patrol the terminal, satellite navigation systems and other high-tech equipment, the company have settled in the border line, border and equipment and our country, are synchronized to achieve a historic leap.

the saying goes, the border is no small matter. Water state boundaries, state boundaries are not as clear as land-based, internationally accepted approach is to channel the river into the middle of borders, and the middle will be twists and turns as the water level and trend of channel change. Therefore, the water patrol patrol is much more difficult than on land, but also much more complex, and technical content requirements are much higher.
new patrol boats designed, streamlined smooth smooth, high-tech, more advanced technical and tactical performance, drag-reducing performance, with advanced power equipment, water patrol the border of Guangxi preliminary information, the the southern border of the motherland to become a new generation of “Water Guardian” in the hands of the control side of weapon.
order to maximize the performance of new equipment, people and equipment can achieve the best combination is the key. Therefore, only the scientific facilities and training, teaching and practical combination of theory, practical training with a combination of psychological, weaknesses, strengths, the transformation strain, increasing the overall quality of officers and men, in order to fulfill the mission in defending the control side.
