Taiwan’s War Games Begin With Response To Simulated Chinese Biochemical Attack

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Keep your eye on Taiwan after the 2022 Winter Olympics being held in Beijing. The weak Biden Administration has been ambiguous about America’s commitment to our ally Taiwan. Furthermore, China is not intimidated by the Biden Administration. As such, China could very well attempt to invade Taiwan sometime during the next three years. Most especially if China believes that President Trump will once again be elected POTUS in 2024.

Taiwan’s war games begin with response to simulated PLA biochemical attack

By South China Morning Post, September 13, 2021

Taiwan has launched its most important annual war games to test its defences in the event of conflict with mainland China.

The five-day Han Kuang live-fire drills began on Monday, days after senior officials from the island reportedly visited the United States for high-level defence and security talks.

Tensions across the Taiwan Strait have shown no sign of abating, with mainland China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) sending warplanes to Taiwan’s air defence identification zone almost daily to ramp up pressure on the self-ruled island, which Beijing views as its territory.

The drills, which will include exercises at offshore islets, began with a test of the Taiwanese military’s coordinated medical ability to respond to simulated biochemical attacks from the PLA, according to Taiwan’s defence ministry.

Ministry officials said the forces would also be tested on their ability to preserve their combat strength in response to a simulated first strike from the PLA.

The drill involved flying various warplanes from their bases in western Taiwan to Jiashan base in the east for temporary shelter to preserve their combat power before launching an attack in response to the PLA. The planes included Mirage-2000s and F-16V fighter jets as well as E-2K airborne early-warning aircraft and P-3C submarine hunting planes.

Jiashan base, built inside a mountain in Hualien, is reported to have a 2,300-metre (7,500ft) taxiway allowing aircraft to move back and forth uninhibited. As Taiwan’s largest underground bomb shelter for aircraft, it has room for 200 fighters.
