digital combat unit of the China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) has conducted live-fire drills at an altitude of over 4,000 meters on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, a practice which military experts said showcased the country's determination to build a victorious army.

The drills mainly tested the complete digital combat system in the extreme environment, Song Zhongping, a Beijing-based military expert and TV commentator told the Global Times on Thursday.

Song noted such a practice is not targeted against any particular nation near the area, but forms part of China's bigger plan to build a strong army capable of winning a war in all weathers and territories. Almost all units will regularly practice in the area, he said.

Hundreds of military vehicles carrying advanced weaponry including drones, early warning radar, howitzers and air defense missiles participated in the PLA maneuver, China Central Television (CCTV) reported on August 11.

The PLA digital combat unit is able to independently perform counter fire missions including anti-tank and air defense tasks, CCTV said.

The exact location of the drill is not identified in the report.
