PLAGF Service Support Brigade

The People's Liberation Army Ground Force (PLAGF) utilizes the Service Support Brigade (SS-BDE), also known as the Combat Service Support Brigade (CSS-BDE) or Combat Support Brigade (CS-BDE), to support maneuver formations in both times of peace and war. While The Intelligence Ledger has been unable to identify an exact task organization (TASKORG) for the SS-BDE, PLAGF clearly identifies its role. SS-BDEs conduct logistical, transportation, medical, repair, resupply, command and control (C2), communication, electronic warfare (EW), and limited intelligence collection missions in support of maneuver formations, and often loan out units to Combined Arms Brigade (CA-BDEs) as needed.
