First Surface-to-Air missile live fire exercise between China, Thailand

Marine corps from China and Thailand conducted their first joint live fire exercise involving surface-to-air missiles on Monday at Sattahip naval base, the largest naval base in Thailand.

Officers say all 7 missiles fired by the two sides hit their targets.

The military training is part of Blue Strike 2016, a joint drill involving the Chinese and Thai marines that got underway on Saturday.

The military drill is the third one of its kind, following the Blue Strike 2010 and Blue Strike 2012 joint training exercises.
