BEIJING — About 16,000 Chinese troops are finishing a monthlong mock war that has involved planes, helicopters and surface-to-air missiles plus more than 80 pieces of artillery, an observer said Friday.

From early September through early October, the People's Liberation Army troops have divided into red and blue teams at the 1,000-square-kilometer Zhurihe military training base in the rugged Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region to test the performance of equipment and the ability of commanders in "combined combat" circumstances, said the observer, one of a group of foreign observers to be briefed on the exercise by Chinese officials earlier this week.
