Chinese, Mongolian armies conduct "Steppe Partner-2024" joint training

The Chinese and Mongolian armies on Friday conducted a live-fire drill at a training ground in Dornogovi Province of Mongolia to enhance combat capabilities and coordination in a real combat scenario as part of the ongoing "Steppe Partner-2024" joint military training.

The training, which started from May 12, represents the first-ever collaboration between the ground forces of the two countries.

The participating troops from China are mainly chosen from a brigade under the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) 79th Group Army.

Friday's training mainly tested the capabilities of command, coordination, and logistical support required for joint operations against illegal armed groups. It also aimed to identify and resolve potential conflicts that may arise during real combat scenarios.

"Through this drill, we have had a deep understanding of the battlefield environment in the area. Due to strong winds and soft sands in the area, it is easier for the vehicles to get stuck and it's difficult for us to maintain formation of the convoy. Therefore, we need to constantly adapt to the local conditions and work closely with each other," said Jiao Renpeng, a soldier from the Chinese side.

The Chinese forces deployed reconnaissance, firepower, and air defense units, utilizing various weapon systems such as unmanned reconnaissance aircraft, assault vehicles, and infantry fighting vehicles to conduct aerial reconnaissance, precision strikes, and fire coverage on targets in different areas.

In the one-hour drill, the Chinese and Mongolian forces successfully completed tasks such as joint blockade, firepower strikes, and rapid encirclement.

The official joint training involving live ammunition will take place on Sunday.
