August 17, 2016
Six female soldiers from the People's Liberation Army Air Defense division participate in an ongoing drill in the Gobi Desert. The drill dicates that each soldier be given a 30-kilogram cable, and that every team be allotted 15 minutes to construct a communications cable with a 5-kilometer range. The soldiers train for eight consecutive hours every day. Over the 10 days of training, many soldiers lose weight thanks to the hard physical labor.
