The training contents, which are in line with the unit’s real combat conditions, have helped troops improve their capabilities of swimming across a river while carrying weapons and other equipment.

Acknowledging that the training contents are difficult, complex, and dangerous, troops have exerted great efforts to practice and meet their training targets and stay ready to take rescue missions when needed.
