127th Light Mechanized Infantry Division
"Red Army Division"
The 127th Light Mechanized Infantry Division, a Red Army Division (the only one in the Jinan MR), began to undergo a conversion to a mechanized unit around 1997 or 1998. During this process the unit has also undergone significant upgrades to its C4I systems allowing for greater command post automation. The unit has also improved its reconnaissance, communications, radar, and electronic warfare capabilities allowing for greater coordination between its forces and precision strikes.
