PLAN Submarines



Fortress Fleet

As these ships traveled together as a task force at least for the purposes for a photo operation; it could be a good starting point to build a hypothetical PLAN carrier battle group.

People's Liberation Army Air Force - Aviation Branch - Order of Battle, 2012


The PLAAF is organised in six branches:

  • Aviation (Hankongbing)
  • Anti-Aircraft Artillery (Gaoshepaobing)
  • Surface-to-Air Missiles (Dikong daodanbing)
  • Radar Troops (Leidabing)
  • Airborne Units (Kongjiangbing)
  • Communication Troops (Tongxinbing)

This page provides an insight into the organisation and structure of the Aviation Branch, and its elements operating combat and combat support aircraft. Please note that Flying Schools have been omitted.

Structured along PLA lines, the Aviation Branch is organised into seven Military Region Air Force (MRAF) mirroring the PLA's Military Regions.


Each MRAF exercises control over its subordinated units via Command Posts (CP).

MRAF Command Posts
Shenyang Changchun, Dalian
Beijing Datong, Tangshan
Lanzhou Hetian (or Hotan), Ürümqi and Xi'ian
Nanjing Fuzhou, Shangai, Zhangzhou
Guangzhou Nanning, Wuhan
Jinan No CP
Chengdu Kunming, Lhasa

Each CP controls a number of subordinated ground-based units, including SAM brigades and regiments, AAA regiments, radar, communications and other support units, as well as several Air Divisions (ADs).

In standard PLAAF terminology, the Aviation branch is usually described as consisting of the following type of units:

  • Fighter (Jianjiji)
  • Ground attack (Qiangjiji)
  • Bomber (Hongzhaji)
  • Transport (Yunshuji)
  • Reconnaissance (Zhenchaji)

Generally, the PLAAF's AD are specialized in their tasks and each usually control 2 or 3 Air Regiments (ARs) equipped with the same type of aircraft or at least with the same role and purpose. Usually, each AR occupies its own air base and thus is broadly equivalent to a US Air Force Wing. It is further subdivided into two or three Fight Groups operating between 8 and 10 aircraft. At the lowest rung of the PLAAF's chain of command are Flying Squadrons controlling between 2 and 4 aircraft.

The authorized strength for a Fighter or a Ground-Attack regiment is 24 aircraft and 40 pilots, while for a bomber or transport regiment it is 18 aircraft and 30 crewmembers.

Direct-reporting units

Essentially equipped with transport aircraft, these units report directly to the PLA and the PLAAF Headquarters.
