Nei Monggol (Inner Mongolia) Military District
In October or November 2002 the Neimenggu Military District organized and conducted a series of exercises that simulated the invasion of an enemy force that would be resisted by subdistrict forces, border defense regiments [PAP], militia, and reserve units. According to the Innter Mongolia Daily on November 2, 2002 a "Blue Force" intruded into Chinese territory under the cover of artillery and helicopter support. The Blue Force was reportedly intercepted and resisted by regular army troops while reserve units organized and mobilized to encircle the invading force.
