The following is based on a translation of a report on a Chinese news site:

China’s major news site reports about the intensive training of a rocket artillery battalion in China’s Jinan Military Region.

In the second year after its equipment was replaced by a new-type long-range rocket artillery a few years ago, it has destroyed all the moving target vessels at sea in a live ammunition drill.

The report describes how hard the troops’ trained 14 hours a day for seven days a week without taking leave and were finally able to achieve a much higher hitting rate than required.

Jinan Military Region covers part of China’s eastern coast.

The long-range rocket artillery is expected to be used for long-range coastal defence against invading navy coming from the east.
