  According to a leading officer of the air force of the PLA Jinan Military Area Command (MAC), the joint training, which is divided into such two layers as theatre and basic campaign army corps, will go through the whole year of 2010. Under the leadership of the Jinan MAC, the training is respectively organized by the air force and a group army of the Jinan MAC. The joint training of this year will focus on exercising relevant missions and subjects, and make efforts to enhance the systematic combat capability based on information system according to the training approaches from unit composition to key element integration and finally to systematic integration.

  It’s learned that the test and argumentation of the first theatre-level joint campaign training in the history of the PLA conducted in the Jinan Theatre in 2009 had preliminarily explored such joint training models as the military-civilian combination, integration of three services and integration of combat and training within the theatre, established a rather reliable leading mechanism which could efficiently operate for joint training of the theatre and all-roundly tested the operational efficiency of the integrated command platform for joint combat and joint training.

  It’s learned that a batch of advanced equipment, including destroyer, reconnaissance satellite, early warning aircraft, reconnaissance aircraft and electronic warfare aircraft will participate in the joint training of the theatre.
