The 5th PLAN Marine Briagde is here
It just completed its first field deployment drill in minus ten degrees near its home port of Qingdao (here). The 1st and 2nd PLAN Marine Brigades are home-ported in Zhanjiang, South Sea Fleet. Since the 5th Marine Briagde is in Qingdao, it is likely under the North Sea Fleet.
