BEIJING - The Chinese military has relocated more vehicles in the anti-graft campaign to border areas, a sign that the campaign is helping troops improve their fighting capability.

As of the end of September, all vehicles found in violation during the anti-graft campaign have been handed to troops stationed in remote and border areas under harsh conditions such as Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang and Tibet, reported, the website of army newspaper the PLA Daily on Monday.

The report did not specify the number of vehicles or their models but said the transfer was ordered by a military meeting in June.

It said the vehicles have been coated with camouflage paint and will be used for military training, war-time preparation and search and rescue purposes.

Vehicles in the military is a key area of the anti-corruption campaign. Military regulation holds that only officers above a certain ranking can have access to passenger cars. But violations in recent years have been on the rise.

Since the campaign started in late 2012, the military has said luxury cars should not have military plates and banned troops from buying foreign made vehicles.
