The Chinese Navy's South China Sea Fleet has conducted a landing drill. The drill has not only honed the fleet's landing combat capability, but also given valuable practice in coordination.

This is the target. The objective for the Chinese Navy's South China Sea Fleet:  to capture the island. The drill involved a landing brigade, marine corps [kor], amphibious forces and navy helicopter units. The Red Side landing formation broke the enemy blockades and the fleet went into action.

Moving towards the pivoting station. Twisting, accelerating, and then, the assault on the target. The new fleet is characterized by superior speed and high assault breaching capacity. But the terrain proved much more challenging than in previous missions.

The experience of the commander was key.

"The mission is very complicated this time. There's no depth in the landing shore. So the fleet risks crashing to the shore if the speed is too high, and may be severely affected by the wind at a low speed. We have to continuously switch helm rudder and rotative speed difference to ensure a punctual landing," Yang Fei, commander of South China Sea Fleet, said.

Once within range, the marines quickly made landfall.

"We have greatly tested the combat capability of the fleet.  This has laid a solid foundation for further enhancing the competitiveness of the entire troop," Chen Jianli with South China Sea Fleet, said.

The drill tested the coordination abilities of the different forces under real-fire conditions.  The practice has improved multiple navy tactics.
