Blue forces in PLA act as imaginary enemies in military exercises. In last year’s Zhurihe (Jurh) Exercise, the result of blue forces against red forces were six wins and one loss. Jurh is a famous exercise base in Inner Mongolia.
However, China National Defense, a military newspaper recently likened some blue forces to be ornaments. It says strong blue forces are few; other blue forces in PLA are so weak that are often defeated, and are therefore despised by red forces.
