Video: Chinese navy trains in West Pacific

31-01-2013 A Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) Navy fleet conducted the year's first open-sea training exercise in the West Pacific Ocean on Thursday morning after sailing through the Miyako Strait as scheduled, military sources revealed.

The navy fleet entered the strait at 5:50 a.m. Thursday and sailed into the West Pacific at about 10:00 a.m., according to the sources.

The fleet arrived at its training area as planned, though it met with moderately high waves while passing through the strait, the sources added.

The fleet comprises three ships -- the missile destroyer Qingdao and the missile frigates Yantai and Yancheng -- carrying three helicopters, all from the North China Sea Fleet under the PLA Navy
