    Eastern Theater Command

    Several recent changes

    7th Brigade based to Wuhu rattached to Shangai base before 7th Rgt /3th Fighter Division have do transition from J-7E/G/JJ-7 ( 24 + 4 ) on J-16 must have about 20.

    10th Bomber Division
    Normaly a new Rgt 30th with 18 H-6M received from 108th Regiment which do transition on H-6K

    And 77 Sar Rgt to Nanjing becoming Transp and Search and Rescue Brigade have 12 Z-8K and Mi-17

    Also 14th Fighter Division stand down with a new Suzhou Air Base created make sense with others change in all branchs

    Possible the 4 KJ-2000 with some Y-8T rattached to a 77 Rgt, the 76th have KJ-200/500 sure

    Following the just recently revealed new Fuzhou Base in the Eastern Theatre Command and the alleged Kunming Base I got hints for four more base to be or even already established including Lanzhou, Wuhan, Jinan, Lhasa and Jinan !

    Need some more time to confirm ... but it seems as if the Base/Brigade concept will not only expanded but also adopted for all Theatre Commands and that this re-organisation is more profound that the 2012-reform.

    Another question however in this regard: WHY all this ??

    Any ideas?

    The theory is that serial numbers beginning with 1, 2, 3, and 4 are for large aircraft divisions like transport and special missions aircraft.

    Numbers beginning with 5 is reserved for Theatre-subordinate units (SAR, recce, survey, etc) with the second number going from 1-5 in a clockwise pattern starting with Eastern Theatre and ending with Central Theatre. E.g. 51XXX is ETC, 52XXX is STC, 54XXX is WTC, etc.

    Numbers beginning with 6 and 7 are for fighters and attack aircraft brigades.

    8 is for PLANAF, 9 for PLA LH.

    Therefore, in response to your question on why the Base/Brigade concept is spreading to all theatres, the prevailing theory is that all fighters/attack units are getting brigadised to fit into 6XXXX and 7XXXX.
