Air Force Boat Unit / Air Force Sea Battle Team

In everyones impression, the Chinese Air Force is mainly composed of aviation units, ground-to-air missile units, and radar units. The sea seems to be inaccessible to the sea, but the white horse is not necessarily the prince. There are really troops that accompany the rivers and lakes, and that is the little-known Air Force boat unit.

The Air Force has a "sea battle team", usually referred to as the Air Force Boat Unit. The main task of this unit was to transport fuel and other materials to the Air Force on the domestic river channel. The focus of the Air Force Boating Force has been mainly on the water transportation of aviation fuels, especially the use of the Yangtze River Channel. It is necessary to transport oil and materials for the air force along the line, and the transportation volume of water transportation is also higher than that of the land.

In the 1970s, the air forces of Wuhan, Nanjing, Guangzhou, and Fuzhou Military Regions established a water transport brigade to ensure oil transportation. The air force water transport brigade of Wuhan and Guangzhou military regions was expanded from the original fleet. The big and convenient, but in recent years, with the preparations for the military struggle of the Chinese Air Force in the direction of the sea, the continuous development of the long-range war patrol, the development focus of the Air Force boat unit has been greatly changed.

Later, the functions gradually changed, and now they are mainly responsible for providing comprehensive protection for the actual training of the Air Force at sea. When the Air Force conducts actual combat training at sea, they will arrange targets at sea and drag back the targets after the training. When Air Force pilots perform skydiving life-saving training, they are responsible for safety and security, as well as performing joint search and rescue pilots. During the joint exercise, they will also repair the landing ship and other equipment. Although they are the Air Force, they are drifting all over the sea all year round. They can be called the sharpening stones of the air force's combat effectiveness.

Air force naval forces carry out pilot search and rescue missions. The southern war zone air force a maritime training base there is a boat troops, officers and soldiers all year round with the sea, with boats as home, fighting the waves, building the sea, To undertake the air force maritime assault competition assessment, pilot sea skydiving life-saving training, joint search and rescue at sea and many other tasks. Their ships are generally small, the main equipment is tugboats, reconnaissance boats, landing craft, sea repair platforms, and so on, they call themselves "Air Force Marine Corps." The air force's ships are painted differently from the Navy's lead-gray coating, is dark blue, different from the sea air force ships.

The Southern Theater Air Force has a dedicated sea training base established in 2012. This base is responsible for many tasks such as aviation assault competition assessment of aviation units, pilot marine parachute rescue training, and maritime joint search and rescue. In particular, the Air Forces fighter-to-sea target support and pilot seadiving training must be completed by them. The guarantee, in terms of the evaluation of the military newspaper, is a great contribution to boosting the air force's maritime combat capability.
