The People's Liberation Army navy conducted its largest ever live-ammunition drill in the South China Sea last week, Chinese media reported.

The exercise involved more than 100 naval vessels, dozens of aircraft and a number of electronic warfare units in a sophisticated electronic warfare scenario, PLA Daily reported. The PLA's Second Artillery Corps, which operates China's strategic and cruise missiles, also sent several battalions to Tuesday's drill.

Video from China Central Television showed the PLA mobilized some of its most advanced weapons during the drill, including the J-11 fighter jet and Type-054 frigate.
