Chinese Armed Forces ORBAT Part 5: Air Force

PLA AIR FORCE ORBAT & STRUCTURE

In December 2011, PLAAF started creation of Air Brigade structure by upgrading 14 existing Air Regiment (AR) HQs and abolished 4 existing Air Division HQs. All the brigades were assigned to one of four Bases

New Command Structure for fighter and ground attack aircraft is as following:

PLAAF HQ

MRAF HQ

Base

Air Brigade

Flight Group

Flight Squadron

On the other hand, heavy bombers, transport and most special mission aircraft (like refuellers?) operate under air divisions attached to PLAAF HQ, but tactical control most likely lies with the theater commander. The new system puts fighters and ground attack jets in independent brigade unit structure with no divisional HQ control.

Each combat air Brigade has 24 aircraft plus trainers in three to five battalion level flight groups, though most seem to have only three. There are five to six airframes as spares and reserves. But brigades comprising of foriegn aircraft like Su-27 may not have such reserves. Chinese manufacturers produce aircraft in batches of ten, of which eight are operationally inducted while the remaining two are considered reserves.

14 subordinate training brigades were created from former training regiments and control of flight college was given to PLAAF HQ from MRAF HQ. In 2017, more changes were implemented and are probably still going on. 23 Air Division HQs were abolished, most of remaining regiments were converted to brigades or were dissolved completely.

Air Combat Brigades

  • 24 Aircraft + Trainers + 6 spares divided in 3-5 battalion grade flight groups (FG). Most brigades have 3 rather than 5 FGs.
  • Some air brigades with foreign aircraft like Su-27 don’t have any spare aircraft.
  • Training and some specialised brigades may have different structures.
  • Table below shows structure of PLAAF in 2011 before it’s reorganisation in 2016-2017
