   ZHURIHE, June 3 (ChinaMil) -- As an armored brigade under the Nanjing Military Area Command (MAC) of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) maneuvered for thousands of kilometers into the hinterland of the grassland in northern China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, the "Stride 2014 Zhurihe" series exercise was unveiled at the Zhurihe Training Base under the Beijing MAC of the PLA on May 31, 2014.

   In the following two months, a combined army brigade from each of the five MACs, namely the Guangzhou MAC, the Jinan MAC, the Shenyang MAC, the Chengdu MAC and the Lanzhou MAC, will enter the training base successively according to the randomly selected sequence to carry out a concentrated examination and assessment.

  This series exercise aims at providing an example and standard for the PLA to carry out normalized actual-combat training at military base by relying on the Zhurihe Training Base and the first professional "blue army" of the PLA as well as through the whole-process confrontation and assessment by centering on the combat missions of the troop units participating in the exercise, according to the leaders from the Military Training Department of the General Staff Headquarters (GSH) of the PLA.

   At least 85 percent of the actual strength of personnel and equipment of the troop units participating in the exercise must be assigned, including all personnel in the key posts and all new equipment.

   The exercise' directing department has classified the exercise into four stages including maneuvering projection, battlefield maneuvering, actual-troop confrontation and comprehensive examination with 1,062 assessment points and 65 factors and will precisely assess the overall combat capability of the troop units based on the quantified indexes according to a score system with 1,000 as full mark.

  In addition, the directing department also launched a series of "bans": no strength and equipment adjustment without permission, no repeated use of the lost forces, no entrance to the exercise field in advance to carry out reconnaissance and survey, no change of the actual-combat system's performance, no preplans, no deduction, and so on.

Looks like the PLA doesn't believe in ruggedized electronic equipment for battle field.
