Purpose for this live-fire drill, according to PLA (Chinese People's Liberation Army) is to simulate a mass removal of the enemy’s fortified positions. The military exercise is claimed to serve defense purposes.

The event takes place in the context of escalating tension between India and China around Himalayan border areas. It involves up to 7,000 soldiers from PLA on the altitude of 4,700m.

Chinese media reveal that this China military exercise include a variety of tasks combined, such as artillery, aviation, missiles, engineering, electronic warfare among some other special forces. Particularly, live-fire drill also makes use of drones and tanks.

The announcement on China military exercise is published after the India-China clash in Galwan Valley, but it doesn’t specify the date of the drill. They only mention the time as “recent days.”

This is considered as an act of showing off the strength of Chinese military forces, warning India against any army movement.
