New Transportation Regiments, 15th Airborne Corp

The long rumored two transportation regiments organic to the 15th Airborne Corp had been confirmed by the Earthquake. The sizes of those two regiments are still small and they still have to use both PLAAF 34th and 13th Transport Divisions in a foreseeable future. However, this is an important development in PLA’s offensive capabilities.

Y-8 regiment, 15th Airborne Corp (size unknown) serial number 66**

Helicopter Regiment, 15th Airborne Corp, 4 Z-8 and 4 Mi-171 confirmed, serial number 61**
