The paper said that the drones will allow China's anti-artillery forces to gain experience in combating aerial attacks. A huge amount of money has been spent by the division to purchase the equipment it needs for the drill. Experts in unmanned aerial vehicles were invited to the division along with officers and enlisted men from the unit and other units to gain experience in operating drones.

Wang Hongshan, the division commander said that the blue team must be tough enough for the anti-artillery unit to fight in an environment similar to real combat. He said that this will enhance the combat capability of the division. He also suggested this kind of training be carried out routinely by the air defense units of the PLA to prepare them for operations in all weather conditions.
