Beijing : A digital combat unit of China’s military has conducted live fire drills in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, which Chinese experts say displayed the country’s determination to build a strong army capable of winning a war in all weathers and territories, official media reported.

The drills, carried out by the People’s Liberation Army’s (PLA) digital combat unit in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, mainly tested the complete digital combat system in the extreme environment, Beijing-based military expert and TV commentator Song Zhongping told Global Times on Thursday.

Such a practice is not targetted against any particular nation near the area, but forms the part of China’s bigger plan to build a strong Army capable of winning a war in all weathers and territories, he said.
