reporter recently visited these heroes back to Hubei “Thor”, which the enhanced version of Secret of the “shock troops”, how to achieve the upgrade again, “out of the Amazon.”
gas raid on the Chinese team
10 13 evening 9:30, Venezuela, a mountain, night, such as ink, rough road in a truck on the gallop.
car sat 21 Chinese paratroopers, just experienced a 31-hour long flight, the truck more than two hours journey, not down over a 12-hour time difference … …
side of the road suddenly sounded intense gunfire, dense, compact, truck fierce braking.
“hidden off!” Captain Du Zhihui unruffled, quickly issued a directive.
the car, blowing it is sprayed tear gas. Instant, the players of the nose, eyes filled with gas, burst into tears, apnea, waving their hands instinctively driven gas, until the entire face buried in the soil … …
“Chinese friends, welcome you to the ‘hunters’ school. “raid ended, the rank of a major committee Fang Junguan shoulder out to greet them:” From now on, you entered the training phase, the challenge it. “
live ammunition, tear gas increases, so welcome way, in Venezuela, “Hunter School” rare. It was founded by the United Nations special forces training center to harsh environment, means cruel, strict management of the “devil training” known, selection methods, such as real as cruel, elimination rate of 50% to 80%.
however, to attend anti-terror joint training of 21 Chinese paratroopers also strong, because the “Thor” commandos endured the test of no less than “hunting school.”
“Thor” commando captain Li Hairui told reporters in the political relations, technology, customs, physical relations, customs, and other psychological tests, in which a “hunter obstacle” stumped many people.
correspondent saw in the training field: low-pile under the net, burning on the wire cloth, crawl, or swim across a little slower when it is burned; 3 m high wall within the pool after being asked to do hold your breath, carry ammunition boxes and other action until ordered a halt; 20-meter-high metal frame vertical climb, then climb an inclined ladder face down, head and face will drum up the blood vessels; seize the head of the traction rope 30 meters , across the river, it was hard Akira rope until it is dropped in the water swimming … “This is one thousand meters ‘Hunter obstacles’ on the road in a dozen different tests, damaged rub meat, legs collapsed are common, a practice day, physical and psychological suffering in the limit of. “Lihai Rui said that through the rigorous test of the 86 players called all-powerful: not only able to complete physical, mental, parachuting, shooting, rock climbing and other basic combat skills training in man, but also to grasp the reconnaissance, fighting, swimming, driving, and other special outdoor survival skills, proficient use of a variety of firearms and a variety of communications equipment.
smooth landing designated area
2 days of theoretical study, the players into the combat training, though mentally prepared, the process of joint training or scary. 17 hours a day high-intensity training mission, 23 joint training project turns on stage, “Thor” commando not only to overcome the language barrier, but also to adapt to the strange training methods and psychological stress.
sergeant Xiong Haibo, skydiving more than 600 times, proficient in 4 models, three kinds of umbrella, nine kinds of terrain parachuting skills, is the backbone of veteran parachute, umbrella party may appoint landing training that he was “surprised.” In China, each airborne umbrella for their own use are familiar with their own jump stack. Here are all the workers folded umbrella, to receive what would jump at what airborne umbrella, there is no time to become familiar umbrella of performance and construction.
surface world only had 2 motor training, only know that the Committee will provide 3 different side of the umbrella model, and 800 meters off the ground with the domestic habits of parachute different, they are 400 m altitude, the ” times the gate of hell, “said. October 25, the plane full of heavily armed commandos fly scheduled airspace. Strange umbrella, strange weather, unfamiliar territory, for any of these three strange old parachutist terms are difficult to overcome the obstacles, we can imagine the psychological pressure.
Venezuela this season’s unpredictable weather, the aircraft in the air and down in a difficult flight, commandos were firmly grasp the handle, put a sudden weight loss caused by a strong sense of nausea. Hovering at low altitude aircraft in the 400 meters, the ground is clearly visible building, put in staff side committee gesturing energetically: “Chinese friends, good luck!”
green light, Xiong Haibo not hesitate to jump out. After the parachute opened, he found that the umbrella does not exhaust, no wand, this is the first time he met. No exhaust port and a wand, it means the ordinary skydiver parachute in the air can not be manipulated, can only “carried by the wind.” Seeing more and more ground in front, Xiong Haibo skilled are bold, land use control with the speed and direction control, and ultimately successfully to the designated landing area.
a cake meal a glass of water
10 months of Venezuela is still intolerable heat, cover the floor of the jungle like a steamer, 10 hours training in the jungle is another potential a test. Rangers have a thick camouflage on wet, sweat on his face merged into a river, even worse, despite the collar, cuffs, trouser legs were tied too tight, still can not stop the madness raging mosquito, Soon the body will be itchy, but can not move a bit. Pain, hunger, thirst, torment of mosquito bites, they are absolutely still, until the end of the whistle blew.
potential in addition to the jungle, the bursting of the important military target explosives and exclude high-risk, urban search and rescue operations building, armed day and night 400 m altitude parachuting, helicopter jungle downhill, real background behind enemy lines 5000 m penetration of high-altitude parachute-wing 23 subjects such as joint training, 17 hours a day of high intensity training is physically tired, a meal of corn bread, a cup of cold water has the highest treatment.
Although the conditions so hard, “Thor” commandos who are in these “real” training, have more experience. Soyo team told reporters that the Committee provided the firearms are the latest style, so that we open the eyes can be pulled after a shooting range, the committee immediately to confront the group, seeing the fire within 600 meters from both sides results comparable, sly instructors to shoot from the direct reference to 1000 meters. 1000 meters sniper is the limit of this model of gun shot distance, target in sight, only the size of a fingernail, a little shaking it “huge mistakes.” “We have a good foundation, skills, the second round was on target, and soon the Commission side behind, and this gives instructors surprised.” Soyo that this exercise you unfamiliar firearms adaptability.
“We are in the domestic implementation of blasting, pull the fire burning guide tube, it will run to the safe point, the instructors made us squat in the vicinity.” Mare players talking about the first time the real explosion training, some scared. Not far from the lead fire-tube “hissing” sound clearly audible smoke, “bang!” Bang, rising more than ten meters high burst point of the “mushroom cloud”, feeling the body are 被震 off the ground, followed by a heat wave hit, small stones out of the body off the ears “buzzing” sound. Had trained for two years in Venezuela Captain Yin Fei told him, appointed in this way so that parties want to feel close to the real explosion Baopo Shou, master blow up various targets set and the corresponding equivalent of a safe distance, but also courage and psychological Bao Poshou the training.
Chinese soldiers in the full outstanding
post-combat training, according to each person’s personality, characteristics and familiar areas of the central committee of the two sides 43 airborne soldiers have been mixed into anti-terrorism classes, sniper class, blasting classes, perform tasks, drawn in a different class composition of teams. Although the language barrier, but the military theory of the same, China appointed square with airborne airborne quickly formed a tacit understanding, a look, a gesture can understand roughly what it means.
last joint exercise time also arrived.

” the real test of our time to! “instructors to commando snipers and attackers were divided into two groups. Snipers aboard transport aircraft in advance umbrella dropped from 5,000 meters above the target area, the high ground stand. Attack Ensemble is divided into two teams, parachuting and helicopter were taken downhill to enter the drug base, rescue the hostages, the destruction of drug plants and the “enemy airport.”
5000 meters altitude, low visibility, dense jungle, without any guidance. “Jump!” Commander’s order, the high jump six snipers opened lower, forced landing, concealed good ground penetration to detect pre-ambush.
quickly, and drilled a transport plane flew over the target area 400 meters clouds, doors open, attacking a team captain of the first out of the cabin Mr Lee, Lightning to the designated landing area. “Fire!” Joint command issued attack command. “Bang! Bang! Bang!” Held hostage around 3 points on the watchtower “imaginary enemy” immediately killed.
“5 number pair door blasting! The rest were ready to break into the room!” Li Ching-up order. Yan Wei Bao Poshou agility over obstacles, and find buried explosives, ignition … “Boom!” A loud crash, crashed and broken gates.
