The Chinese trio of Chen Yijun, Ye Ruyi and Hu Daoliang went into the Men's Team - Category Open event as the world champions and they did not disappoint in seeing off France in the final.
In a competition that uses the foil, China had the Individual Foil - Category A (Ye) and Category B (Hu) champions in their line-up, as well as the silver medallist from the A event in Chen - who also won Individual Sabre gold earlier in the Games.
Their quest for Team gold started against Hungary and saw Richard Osvath gain revenge on Chen for his defeat in the Individual Foil semi-finals, but the Chinese had pulled away by the halfway point and won 45-29.
China's next opponents, Italy, were then hampered by Marco Cima's injured arm and were beaten 45-19 in the semi-finals.
In the other half of the draw, the French led Russia 40-38 with just one bout remaining before a 5-3 win for Damien Tokatlian saw them make the last four with a 45-41 victory to set up a tie with Hong Kong, who had beaten Great Britain 45-19.
In a nailbiting semi-final, France stunned the much-fancied Hong Kong to win 45-41, with Tokatlian’s 7-3 victory over Wong Tang Tat proving the difference between the two nations. Hong Kong then bounced back to beat Italy 45-42 to claim bronze.
In the final, Chen and Ye won the first two bouts to put China 10-1 in front and at this point the outcome of the gold medal match looked a foregone conclusion.
But Category A player Tokatlian then beat China's Category B player Hu 7-5 in the third bout, before Ludovic Lemoine beat the same player 14-5 in the fifth bout to help the French get back into the final at 25-23 behind.
But with Games debutant Chen winning all three of his bouts 5-1 and Ye winning his first two encounters 5-0 China edged further in front.
When Hu came out on top 5-3 in his match with France’s Category B equivalent, Alim Latreche, in the seventh bout they were helped into a 35-26 lead.
Then, in the ninth and final bout, 25-year-old Ye drew 5-5 with Lemoine and the gold medal was confirmed for China with a 45-32 victory.
For Ye it takes his career tally of gold medals at the Paralympic Games to four and Hu now has five - having also won Team Foil gold the last time it was staged at Athens 2004.
Hong Kong ended the London 2012 tournament second in the medal table with seven, including two golds. The other golds went to Poland, with two, Brazil and Thailand.
