The PLA Hong Kong Garrison recently conducted a scheduled joint maritime and air patrol for the second season of the year, featuring training courses including not only patrol but also search and rescue, the PLA Daily reported on Thursday, July 28. The Z-10s are painted with jungle camouflage colors instead of a pure deep green color, indicating that they are likely of the Z-10K variant affiliated the Air Force rather than the Army Aviation Force, observers said.

The PLA Hong Kong Garrison's aviation sector used to only have transport and utility helicopters, and now the Z-10K attack helicopters can provide escorts for those helicopters, Fu Qianshao, a Chinese military aviation expert, told the Global Times on July 28.
