First Look: PLA Navy Live Fire Exercises in East China Sea


The first photos are coming in from China’s PLA Navy’s live fire exercises conducted in the East China Sea some time yesterday. The above photo shows a Type 022 Houbei fast attack missile catamaran, in its distinctive camouflage pattern, firing one of its YJ-83 anti-ship missiles.

The above photo shows PLAN officers posing for the cameraman pointing at a computer screen and pretending to talk on some old school looking telephones. More photos can be found here on the China Daily site. An English language news report can be found here, though, regrettably, it doesn’t have any action footage.

No word yet on whether the PLA tested their dreaded DF-21D carrier killing ballistic missile.

The dazzle painting looks pretty neat.
