First LH helicopter-to-helicopter, Red-vs-Blue, air combat exercise

After forming the PLA’s first Air Assault Battalion in November 2009 (here) the
7th LH (Army Aviation) Regiment, Jinan MR, conducted its first
large-scale helicopter-to-helicopter, Red-vs-Blue air combat exercise
today.  Clearly, the PLA high command envisions an escort/air defense
role for the light Z-9G. Here’s the link to the PLA Daily article on
this exercise (here)

And here is our early blog entry on the Z-9G’s Air-to-Air configuration.
