Guided missile frigates "Yancheng" and "Luoyang" of the 16th escort taskforce under the Navy of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLAN) conducted an anti-piracy training on its way to the Gulf of Aden to reinforce the awareness of vigilance and preparation for battles.
It is already the sixteenth time for the Chinese Navy to implement escort missions in the Gulf of Aden, and the taskforce command and the special force teams implemented many specialized trainings after having taken the escort missions.
"We have made great efforts to strengthen the special skills such as ship climbing, special shooting, and helicopter abseiling of our soldiers in order to complete the escort tasks such as anti-pirate actions and armed rescuing," said Huang Yongxiang, staff officer of the special troop regiment.
